Our Private Bush Retreat is a quiet and peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland City (Only a 40 minute drive away).
Whangaparaoa Peninsula has an array of stunning beaches, an abundance of superb restaurants and is only a stone's throw away from three beautiful 18 hole golf courses.
Staying at The Private Bush Retreat means that you will be spoilt for choice; you may be lucky enough to see dolphins or orca who frequently visit our local waters to feed and play.

The space

You will have the use of a private lounge area with pool table with a Sonos sound system where you can relax, listen to music or simply watch a movie of your choice on Netflix.

You will have access to a private spa which is great after a day out on the local beach, grab a beer and gaze up at the stars!
We are surrounded by bush and visited all day round by tui's, kereru, fantails & rosella parrots.

We can provide a complimentary 'continental breakfast' on request. Please let us know if you would like us to provide this when you book.

Guest access

As we are located in a secluded valley, you will need your own transport to be able to explore the local area. We have plenty of parking available.

Other things to note

We have a beautiful Briard called Moose who loves people but please be aware he is a large dog so may not be suitable for very young children!

* The price is based on 2 people sharing a Queen room. If you require the 2nd Queen room on the same booking (2 single guests for example) then there will be a charge of $50 per person per night.

An amazing place to stay!!! The only thing I didn't like was the short time we did, the house is impecable and decorated with great taste, the outdoor spa is great to unwind, Sue and Rich are perfect hosts and the best of all... Moose! The cutest and biggest dog ever! :)

Beautiful house with comfy rooms, great hosts and exceptional breakfast. Sue waited on us hand and foot. Very spoilt. We enjoyed a lovely night where we had a spa then BBQd and watched a Netflix movie. Great fun exploring the area with all the beaches and a great walk at Shakespear park. Loved the dog. Thanks for sharing your home with us for the weekend
