ABOUT THE PROPERTY: Titirangi - Auckland's most naturally beautiful suburb. Unlike many properties in the area, we are close to water level so have sea views and easy access to the water's edge. The house is nestled away from the rod, amongst a grove of native Nikau palms and is literally just a few metres to a secluded beach with a flat grassed picnic area. At full tide, launch our Kayaks just a few strides from your doorstep ....or at low tide, stroll around the beach to Laingholm Beach store & the "Real Kiwi" Fish & Chip shop. A true New Zealand experience!

ABOUT THE HOUSE: Enjoy privacy in our home’s lower level with your own entrance and deck facing the sea. Spacious one bedroom with King Bed, a bathroom with bathtub, plus own living area and facilities... wifi internet, TV & digital movies, kayak, use of cedar hot tub and more. Tea, coffee, breakfast cereal & toast included in your room upon arriving free of charge. We also supply you with a sun & rain umbrellas and picnic gear that may be used on our seaside "front lawn"or on your day trip to nearby beaches. There are many local walking tracks in our surrounding national park. We provide maps and information for you. Please note - our home is situated down a path and steps from the parking area - -sorry there is no disabled access.

ABOUT THE AREA: Its 4.5 km up to the vibrant Titirangi Village - home to many artists, writers, poets and healthy lifestylers. The village features all you need: cafe’s, a wine store, supermarket etc. There are also many local yoga classes, massage therapists and health practitioners in the area. It is a 25min drive to downtown Auckland City or bus/train options. Perfect base to explore other beaches nearby such as Cornwallis or venture just a little further to Piha and Bethells Beach

ABOUT US: Your hosts are a New Zealand couple in our late 30‘s with our two year old daughter and British Blue cats Bettie & Billie. We have a very tranquil environment here and although we live upstairs, we are usually busy doing our work during the day, and in the evenings we like to kick and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

Last minute booking and Hayley was great to deal with. Property was as good as it sounds and we had a lovely time just chilling for the weekend. Property had everything you would need for a break, either long or short, it was very clean and modern, and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

This was our last stop on our NZ vacation and it was just fantastic. We enjoyed the quiet and pieceful environment. Hayley took the photos on the day we arrived, so it looked exactly like this :) Thanks Hayley!

We had a super stay at Waterfront Retreat and would recommend this accommodation very highly. Hayley was thoughtful and kind and the added 'extras' that were included within the apartment made our stay even more pleasant. It has been a delight to meet Hayley and her family and Titirangi is most certainly a convenient base for exploring some of the wonders of North Island.

I am happy to join the Hayley appreciation following! A great apartment with all the facilities we needed, stunning location with beachfront and excellent value fish and chips a few minutes away! Bettie Blue and the ducks kept an eye on us as we relaxed in the hammocks watching the tide go out. Hayley and Paul are truly great hosts, very friendly and helpful. I'm sure we will be staying here again!

We ended our three-week holiday with Hayley and it was such a great choice. The space was beautiful and serene. Hayley and her family were great hosts and had everything we needed available. We loved that we could walk 5 minutes for fish and chips and enjoy being right on the water as we ate. I would highly recommend starting or finishing any trip to Auckland with a stay here.

Back at home and willing to review my experience, decided to go through past guests' opinions for "inspiration". All of them are great and couldn't agree more, specially with Mirena. I share every word regarding the house, the location and the hosts. Undoubtedly recommended :)

Great place and hosts. Place is exactly as described. This was our first Airbnb experience and it was perfect. Right by the water, out of the city but close enough to easily get place. Weather didn't allow us to use everything (kayaks, swimming, etc.) but we really liked this location. I recommend this location to anyone with their own transportation and/or ability to venture out on their own. You can hang here too (as we did most evenings) but you'll want a car to get out to see the sites.
