Overlooking west coast. Extremely private, quiet and idyllic. Watch surf break from bed deck or spa. Rustic. Flush toilet & hot shower in small rooms adjoining the studio. Practically off grid. Surrounded by native trees. Bush walks, beach, lake nearby. A real favourite with honeymooners, babymooners and people wanting to get away from it all. Two night minimum - no exceptions. Thanks!

The space
Self contained studio overlooking west coast. Extremely private, quiet and idyllic. Lie in bed and watch the surf break. Deck and BBQ. Hot tub with a view. This place is rustic. Flush toilet and hot shower but in small rooms beside the studio. Practically off the grid. A real getaway. Limited cell phone coverage and no TV, just DVD's, books and the sound of birds. 40 minutes drive from central Auckland. Fantastic views. Beautiful grounds full of natives. 3 minute drive to beach. Close to many excellent walking tracks. Track to the Lake is 5 minutes walk away.

Guest access
You have your own BBQ deck and lawn plus a carpark. The spa pool is yours There is a DVD and a collection of DVD's and books, an IPOD port. You will need a car to get here.

Other things to note
Shops are about a 15 minute drive away so it is good to bring what you need. There is a fridge and a very small freezer. I provide tea coffee and basics.

Location

Bethells Beach, Auckland, New Zealand

Classic west coast New Zealand. The stunning Bethells lake is safe swimming and gets lovely and warm in the summer. Great walks in the bush beach sand dunes. You are also right on the Hiliary trail one of the most beautiful walks in New Zealand.

I love my friends, family, and cooking great food. I work in the media and the arts and have done so all my life. Am currently working across the Pacific on social change projects and get to go to really unique places and meet fascinating people. Recent passion is sailing and I own a very small yacht. I travel a lot and what I like most about that is meeting the people who live in the place I visit. I'm not a big fan of being in a resort- I prefer something more connected to the place. Holidays are all about chilling out for me but I do like to be reasonably active, walking, swimming, yoga, cycling looking at arts and architecture. I like my place to be tidy and clean and I enjoy quiet but I'm not particularly noise sensitive. I like to laugh a lot and really enjoy my life. I don't need to be entertained by the people I stay with.

During your stay
We live on another part of the property and are around and about. Always happy to welcome you if we are nearby and available on the phone for any advice. We have lots of favourite things we do here at Te Henga and we love to share them with guests. We are here if you need us but most people who stay end up hanging out at the studio because it is set up for relaxing. If we are away we leave numbers of neighbours if you have any questions or concerns.
