All about Craig’s place

Located only 60 minutes from downtown Auckland or Auckland International Airport (traffic dependant) this is the perfect escape from the city or base to explore Auckland. Relax on the deck and enjoy Rangitoto Island in the distance. Close to Kauri Bay Boomrock and a great location to relax before or after that big day. Bike friendly being only a Ten Minutes drive from ForFourty Mountain Bike Park, perfect location for a biking weekend away.

Absolutely no parties

The space
Designed by long time employee of Parsonson Architects, this secluded 220 square metre retreat is nestled protectively into the base of a hill by the sea. The glassy, minimalist structure blends subtly into the surrounds while keeping you in close contact with the landscape. In calm weather the exterior walls slide completely open, removing any barrier between you and nature.

The house steps up the site and features 3 guest bedrooms, the main bedroom with expansive ocean views through full length glass bifolding doors.
A stunning courtyard entertainment area provides shelter from prevailing winds while retaining its spectacular views through the house to the sea. A bunk room nestled at the rear of the house provides a retreat for the kids accomodating 5 people with double bunk bed and 3 singles.

Enjoy a casual walk to Waiti Bay to enjoy a swim or a 25 minute walk to the unspoiled 1.4km stretch of sand known as Tawhitokino (mentioned in NZ Good Beach Guide). This stunning property provides everything you need for an idyllic getaway.

Located only 60 minutes away from downtown Auckland or Auckland International Airport this is the perfect escape from the city or base to explore Auckland and its surrounds. Relax on the deck and enjoy Rangitoto Island in the distance.
