  • Kim’s place is fantastic! Plus great tips about the area made for a very enjoyable visit to Titirangi.

    Calvin2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot for a quiet getaway, central without being surrounded by noise. Beautiful native bush and birds, we were lucky enough to get some rain, which sounded amazing!

    Melissa2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Genuinely beautiful little spot! Very convenient to Auckland airport but very private and tropical feel to the property and surrounding area. Cannot recommend enough!

    Craig2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely stunning! Would 100% stay again. So many native birds and surrounded by native bush yet only a short drive to the shops - rather ideal.

    Holly2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here! The host showed us everything and gave some useful tips for the day. If you have a car, dont miss piha beach and kitekite falls. If you dont, visit the nearby zigzag track.

    Greta2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely book this place whenever you get the chance! Surrounded by native bush, all you hear are cicadas and tuis (and so many other birds), very private and serene. Kim is a great host, gives thorough directions, and very hospitable. Could not recommend more!

    Jai2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice place to stay with dear hosts. Breakfast on the terrace with a view of Auckland City is a dream. And nice that they came for a friendly exchange. An enrichment. Thank you.

    Doreen2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay with Gerry and Jeanette. We could check in early which was amazing after a long trip. We traveled with 2 small children who loved the play corner and the hosts were very welcoming, provided a travel cot and high chair. Amazing views, great tips from the hosts, nice conversations, we felt very welcome and comfortable.

    Tereza2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean room / bathroom in the great house of the hosts, with terrace and garden, beautiful plants and a lake access. We enjoyed the view of the Auckland skyline from the terrace. Very great and warm hosts. We felt very comfortable and can only recommend it. The house is in a great residential area, we didn't like the city of Auckland so much, but the zoo is great, we can also recommend it.

    Karsten2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Paradise is the only way to describe this place. Amazing, warm, welcoming, fun loving and new life long friends would be how we describe Gerry and Jeannette! We loved every minute of our stay with them! We were immediately greeted and felt so welcome upon our arrival. We stayed for 42 days... yes 42 days!!! Their home is beautiful and the view from the patio is like no other— totally breath taking! We slept so well and woke each morning to the best Muesli and fruit ever. The location could not be better for winery visits and everything in downtown Auckland and all things north. Both Gerry and Jeannette are exceptionally knowledgable about places to go and things to do and readily shared them. We used every one of their suggestions and had a wonderful time. Not only do we highly recommend them, but we will be back!!!!!!

    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!
    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.
    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.
  • Because of the lockdown we we're stuck in New Zealand and not able to travel. We already stayed in this cabin the first 3 days of our trip and when the government announced a lockdown we contacted Anna for the opportunities. She was so understanding and we could stay as long as we wanted to. Bethells Beach ended up being our home for about 2 weeks and it was the best place we could think of during a lockdown and waiting for a repatriation flight home. Thank you Anna, we will be back one day! x F & I.

    Isabelle Renate2020-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and view!

    Craig2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here after our Wedding and it was amazingly peaceful, beautiful and quiet. The hot tub is dreamy and the view is to die for. Thank you Anna.

    Alex2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The best place we've ever stayed. Such a beautiful cabin with the best view. Would recommend everyone to book 2 or 3 nights or a week. Or longer!! You don't even have to leave the house to have a perfect holiday.

    Isabelle Renate2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The location or view from the house (and even from the bed!) Is just fantastic and we had a great stay.

    Verena2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved staying in Bethells Beach! The cabin was a short drive away from the beach, and the views from the cabin are outstanding. For us, the hot tub really made this spot perfect. And the cabin felt so private and secluded which was great! Highly recommend!

    Lindsey2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place off the beaten path for a get away. Be sure to check out the nearby lake and go shopping before you get here!

    Galen2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a place! We had such a great time here! Anna‘s place has a stunning view and a lot of beautiful little details. We did a beautiful walk to the lake as Anna had recommended to us. And at night: you sit in the hot tub and look at the stars - perfect!

  • Lovely place to stay in quiet suburb of Auckland

    Chris2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely studio with great views of the bay. Really comfortable accommodation, great shower, bed and linen - wound highly recommend. Excellent bus service if you don’t have a car into city. Yve was a great host. , you cannot go wrong with choosing this Airbnb.

    Jan2020-03-20T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely and clean. Would highly recommend.

    Alexandria2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Yve's place was the perfect place to spend the last few days of our holiday. The accommodation is spacious, clean and very comfortable. Yve kindly left us breakfast provisions. The location is great for leaving your car and catching a bus straight into the centre of Auckland - bus stop less than 5 minutes walk away.

    Jenny2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • A very lovely space and location. The pool adds an extra dimension although we didn't use it. The bed was very comfortable and the living and dining facilities were great. The internet and TV worked well. The kitchen is a bit awkward across from the bathroom but there was a sliding door which could separate the two. The cooking facilities were a simple two burner hot plate which was adequate but not great as the counter space was limited.

    Thorsten2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is amazing! The view over the sea is superb, the pool is big enough for nice swimming under the sun. The apartment has everything and is a nice place to relax after visiting the city centre or the beach.

    A tiny isolated hut amidst Kauri and Rimu trees to escape the world, self check in. Outdoor Fire, long drop, outdoor hot shower/bath. Surrounded by Tuis and Wood pigeons the hut is close to Piha and Karekare…or simply stay and enjoy nature. Beaches are 10 minutes away by car either in Piha or Karekare. If you require grocery shopping if you have no transport or arrive late at the airport from overseas please let me know, I can arrange that for a $30 fee. Discounts for longer stays available.
  • Such a beautiful place, with amazing bathtub in the forest and outdoor shower. Loved how sustainable everything was and the location was so gorgeous. Wish I could move in!

    Hannah2020-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for simplicity, good bed, lovely outdoor bath, shower & toilet overlooking trees & beautiful melodies of the Tui birds ( best wall paper ever.) This is the place. Antje has the necessities covered as well.

    Teinakore2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a delightful 2 days staying at Antje's Hut. Lots of thoughtful touches and everything has been provided to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. Would love to stay again and would highly recommend to others.

    West Lynn (part of Grey Lynn) is a central city suburb popular with artists, actors and musicians. Our street is very established,has mostly heritage houses and most of the residents have lived here for decades. (We have been here for 31 years and have a close relationship with all our neighbours.)

  • The accommodation is quiet, secure, leafy, spacious, comfortably and close to buses and amenities. The picture windows face onto a sunny garden. Much nicer to come home to than inner city living but only a short bus ride to the wharfs. Kate is a gem. She gives more than she takes. As a profession musician she is accustomed to hitting the right notes and has carried this into her B@B venture. She has supported us during a difficult time getting back to Europe and for this we are grateful.

    Eric2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great space, cozy, clean, and Kate is a very thoughtful and congenial host!

    Mark2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a wonderful relaxing place to stay. Right on the bus line so it’s easy in and out of the city. Very clean and Kate the host was very helpful. Definitely would stay here again.

    Sharon2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • It's the second time we've been to Kate's studio in the garden. It's perfect for a short stay and is in a great neighborhood within easy commute to city by taxi and can easily walk to delicious food and drink venues up the street. Kate offers lots of local knowledge as well is giving you space and delicious homemade marmalade!

    Bryony2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, bus stop - line 105, almost directly in front of the door with connection to the city center. Approximately 20 min. for cheap $ 2. Too small cafes and pubs. Quiet location in the beautiful garden. Transfer from and to the airport easily by "Supershuttle" for approx. $ 50 for 2 people. All in all a good place to stay to discover Auckland.

    Waldemar2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Auckland. Kate is a wonderful host, House and the Garden are lovely and the Location was really good for exploring auckland but also for relaxing. Happy that we stayed there.

    Larry2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The lodge is ideally located just 30 mins from Auckland airport but out of the way so we had time to recover from our flight in a beautiful setting. It's only 20/30 minutes from picturesque locations such as Kare Kare falls, Kite Kite falls and Piha beach all of which we loved! Elke was extremely helpful from the offset and any queries we had she responded to quickly. We would definitely recommend staying here!

    Shirley2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • What a beautiful place with gorgeous view and stylish and cozy. We really enjoyed our stay and Aramis is a wonderful host and responded promptly to our communications. He also adjusted our rate back to a standard rate because an event that had been scheduled and was cancelled due to the C virus. Love the design and the little touches, especially the way the outdoors are integrated with the indoors which created a relaxing atmosphere... And great shower. :) Thanks, Kia Ora!! Julie and Steve

    Rosie2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Leigh's place is in a beautiful location in the hills above Piha. The location is only a few minutes from the center of Piha. The views of the Tasman Sea from the front patio are gorgeous and I spent one late afternoon and evening simply sitting in the sun and enjoying the views. The unit itself was very clean and comfortable. Finding the location is a little bit difficult, as is driving into and out of the narrow driveway. But after you've done it once, it becomes easy. I very much enjoyed my stay. Highly recommended!

    Duane2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great views, very cute

    Emma2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Twisty roads will bring you to this beautiful, little place. Comfortable bed and pleasant tiny deck to watch the sunset from. Close to Piha where if you cross the bridge into Piha north you can get some great food at the restaurant there. Buy any alcohol you might want before you get to the place. Piha doesn’t sell alcohol outside of the restaurant. Be sure to take the hike recommend in the in house guide/instructions!

    Julie2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so beautiful! Even though the space doesn't have A/C, the windows, which are screened, allow the sea breeze to pass through. We weren't hot at all at night, despite the fact that we visited in the middle of summer.

    Katy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was my first time in Piha, and Tamsin's place was perfect. The location was beautiful and the cottage was super cosy. Only a short drive to Piha Beach and surrounding places to explore. Thank you! :)

  • Beautiful, peaceful, cosy stay

    Alice2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice place looking out over a beautiful valley. The driveway is a little hectic to get in and out of but the view, coziness and that outdoor bath make up for it. Tamsin is a lovely host too

    Oliver2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Tamsin is a most wonderful host and her cottage is the sweetest place to stay! Had a lovely visit, will definitely be back x

    Christine2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property with amazing views across the ocean, very peaceful and good place to watch the sun go down, a lovely place to stay while in Piha. The hot tub was a bonus after a busy day. The walk into Piha is all downhill and the climb up is quite steep we enjoyed the exercise some might find this difficult. The Cafe at the bottom serves really fresh food .

    Debbie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 10 nights in this phantastic house and its beautyful surroundings and it could have been 10 nights more. There are so many things you can do, go to the phantastic beach, do stunning coastal walks or through the beautiful native forest or just enjoy a bath in the hot tube after doing that. The views from the deck are stunning at any time. We had a wunderful time!

    Gabriele2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Two private cabins with decks around. Set in a quaint and quiet garden has views of the Piha. Only 5 minutes walk down the track to Piha Beach, with lovely views over garden, bush, and beach from both cabins. A nice place to read a book, enjoy a sunset drink, or just get the sand off between swims. Comfortable for couple with ensuite toilet and separate cooking facilities. Outdoor shower. The fold out lounge bed is great for kids under 12.
    You have your own private kitchenette and balcony (wrapped round the side and back of the cabin facing the bush). One cabin works as a cosy bedroom, the other the kitchen shed with fridge, small oven, hot plate, tea/coffee and sink. A BBQ, outdoor seating and outdoor hot shower all available to you in the garden area. Great base for exploring the West Coast beaches and tracks. There are extensive gardens where i grow citrus, chillis and flowering trees amongst the coastal Nikau forest. Piha is only an hour from Auckland International Airport and is situated on a wild surf swept coast. It is a wonderful bush covered coast with famous walks on the Hillary Trail and amazing flora and fauna. Sleep with the sound of rolling surf and wake up to the call of Tui, Kereru, Kaka and many other native bird life. We can arrange surf lessons and trips to more easily accessible beaches for beginners and our learner surfers. We have a huge stretch of coast running North South in the westerly subtropical belt. Auckland is situated between the Tasman and the Pacific oceans so we have the opportunity to surf two oceans in one day. Usually our best surfing happens in the New Zealand summer which runs from December to May. Surfing in winter presents huge swells and onshore winds so sometimes we have to travel a considerable distance. Our Local beaches are awesome with big waves and with strong rips so good wave knowledge and some experience is necessary. Always swim between the flags.
    With amazing views overlooking Piha beach, the relaxing sound of the distant surf and the call of the moreporks (NZ native owls) its the perfect its Its a perfect escape for a couple or small family. Just a short 5mins walk to Piha beach, Cafe, RSA, Surf Club, Bowling Club and Piha store. 45min drive to Auckland city. Safe neighbourhood set in extensive hillside gardens overlooking Piha Beach.
  • Lovely cabin in perfect location just 5 minutes walk from the beach! Nice little touches like fruit and homemade bread put out in the morning, and no hassle checking in at all. Outdoor shower was really warm and actually very nice. We had a great night stay here, thank you!

    Jessica2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Steve's place was in a wonderful location with easy access to the beach. The space was as advertised. Communication was quick and responses were very helpful. Would recommend staying here if you are coming to Phia.

    Kellie2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • A unique experience staying in a cute rustic cabin with views of Lion Rock and Piha Beach enjoyed from the balcony. Restful sleep in a comfortable bed with the sound of the waves nearby. Steve welcomed us warmly and shared great travel tips. A delicious breakfast tray with homemade bread was a special treat!

    Robert2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

    Alda2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • If you're staying in Piha this place is will not dissapoint. The host brings a fresh loaf of fresh baked bread in the morning which is a definate bonus.

    Jim2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a quiet and relaxing stay. The space was clean and cozy. It was an easy walk to the beach. Steve provided a lot of great recommendations for places to check out in the area. If you get a chance check out the Piha Cafe!

    Tanis2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Steve is the perfect host, always there with a big smile when you need him. And then, there is the bread... book quick, this is a great place to stay!

    Ella2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place over two huts. The sleeping hut was windows on two sides of the building giving a feeling of sleeping in amongst the forest. With all the birds singing around and the sound of the beach. Which you could see through the trees. Insect mesh screens on the windows too meaning you could open the windows wide and let the fresh air and sound flow through. Loved it. 5 minutes walk to the beach. And what a beach. Steve a great guy too, friendly and helpful. Makes good bread, too.

    The Tasman hut is brand new, it is nestled in a quiet area, with a little street traffic, but you are assured a peaceful sleep! Wake up to bird song, view the Tasman sea from your bed. Watch the gorgeous sunsets whilst having a wine on the deck or in the beautiful bath! You will feel at home, renew your senses, recharge your batteries. This is a wonderful area for bush walks, breath taking views, Piha is the best beach in N.Z, waterfalls surround us too. It’s just magical!
    The whole hut is for you to utilise, it’s very private. We live down the driveway, there is plenty of privacy. The hut has two double beds, one is a pull out sofa, in the living area, comfy bed., however takes up a bit of space when pulled out. Enough room to make meals and be in the kitchen comfortably. You will need to walk up a sturdy ladder to get to the top room. There’s a great little bathroom, compost toilet, awesome bath, and entertainment deck with an amazing outdoor couch.
    We have super friendly neighbours, they are harmless, fun and helpful. And generally keep to themselves we all get on well and respect each other. The odd music note travels through the valley, we all enjoy a good tune.
  • Awesome spot. Would love to go back - thanks Vanessa

    Christian2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • The tiny house was lovely place to stay for a night away. The place was easy to find and had such a lovely view of the ocean! Tas the dog came and hung out with us and was super friendly! Only a 5 minute drive to the beach means the location was perfect! We would definitely come back to stay again!

    Melissa2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • A cute and cozy place perfect for a short break. Comfortable bed. stylishly decorated and well equipped. The outdoor but private bath watching the sunset was magical.

    Lara2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a dream !!! The space is gorgeous and minimal with beautiful touches and the views down to the water across the bush are magical. You can even enjoy it from the outdoor shower/tub. It was hard to choose between being on the beach or sitting on our private deck for sunset. Town and the beach is a quick hop down a scenic drive and Vanessa and Richard (spectacular people and hosts) we're available if we needed anything. Tas the dog came to visit a few times as well making our little one incredibly happy each time. It was hard to leave and we hope to be back again soon ! Highly recommend !

  • A fab wee place to stay with the most perfect view. The stars off the balcony were sublime and the sound of the breaks from the beach will lull you to sleep at night! Highly recommended!

    Corrie2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely stay with a million dollar view! Spectacular sunsets from the beautiful deck. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I would recommend this place to couples or small families. It’s a short drive to the beach, which you could walk as well, but walking back up might be an effort with the hills, so I would suggest having a car. We’ll be adding this to the list of places to come back to!

    Ali2020-03-18T00:00:00Z

  • Romantic Piha was such a great place to spend NYs with my partner. The view is amazing and the space is very clean and modern. There are a lot of little amenities we appreciated such as toothbrush packs, bath robes and cooking essentials. Another Airbnb is next to this, however they are separated enough so you aren’t disrupted by any noise. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone wanting to escape to the beach for a few days!

    Eleanor2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

  • Hands down the most beautiful, serene place we've ever stayed and it's only an easy drive from Auckland. The walk up to the place is beautiful and the reward at the top is well worth the steps. If you want to escape reality and feel like you have the entire West Coast to yourself then this is the place for you. Incredible surf, good coffee nearby, and the most incredible sunsets.

    Come and relax with our NZ birds in this peaceful forest-garden setting. Stand alone cabin with double bed. Bathroom a few steps away, shared with host. Kettle, toaster, gas cooker, cups, plates, towels & linen. Surf beach & store 10 min easy walk.
    Secluded sunny escape in a tranquil spot. The classic character hut was once the laundry to the main house on the site. The small, amazing space is surrounded by stunning trees and garden. Inside you'll find a comfy, double bed length 1.87m with sheets and duvet, drawers, hanging space and a handy bench for sitting or for your bags. Enjoy the morning sun on the deck with table and chairs and watch for the birds. On chilly days you can sit beneath the fluffy blanket and use the small heater and electric blanket
    The Piha Beach Hut is tucked behind the main house up a driveway from the no-through road that leads to the stunning Piha waterfall. The waterfall track is open and 5 mins walk from the hut but most forest tracks are closed to prevent the spread of Kauri dieback disease killing these trees. Please ensure all mud is removed from shoes before leaving Piha.. It is 10 to 15 minutes to beach and cliff paths. Ten minutes walk to the village store, Piha cafe and locally-run bar. RSA restaurant and Piha Surf club are great for eating-out and our community run art gallery is perfect for holiday gifts Thurs-Sunday.
  • Claire’s place was absolutely beautiful, a complete oasis, and is as seen in photos—a place of much needed serenity. I felt like I had a home away from home. The stay was remarkable and close to so many amazing places to enjoy nature, hike, and have a great swim on the beach. The nearby Piha Cafe was also so delicious to eat and dine at while there. I greatly recommend this stay in Piha.

    Victoria2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible place to stay, exactly (if not better) than described. Claire is a fab host - she has thought of everything you might need, and is very helpful with any questions.

    Helen2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Claire's place was the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a red eye flight. The accommodation was very cozy and comfortable, as well as a quick walk to the beach or Kitekite falls!

    William2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I had heard how beautiful Piha is and were keen to visit - we were not disappointed! We had such a lovely time staying in this beautiful hut, with everything provided we could possibly need, including cooking facilities. There is so much to see just in the garden but it is also within easy walking distance of the beach and kitekite falls, both of which you absolutely must make time to visit. Claire is a wonderful, thoughtful host who was happy to chat but also gave us plenty of space to enjoy our Piha break.

    Helen2020-01-08T00:00:00Z

  • We had a wonderful stay at Claire's little hut. The room is suitable for two persons (adults). The bathroom is shared but very nice and the kitchen is small but very well equipped. Claire's place is well located and it's only a short walk to the beautiful waterfall track as well as to the the magnificent beach. The hut is just a lovely place with an even lovelier host! Highly recommended

I don’t think my family ever even showered indoors! Jo was extremely fast to respond to all my many messages and is a terrific host. I highly recommend this property.

  • What a Westie Icon!!! True Piha experience with all the sports stuff etc for kids. Lawn boarding was epic

    Justin2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! What a location, right on the beach at Piha. Yes, this is as described a retro 50s style beach, but perfect if you want to get offline and relax.

  • Wow, just wow. Super easy instructions to follow, fantastic location with a view to match and a surprisingly large space for such a tiny home. Definitely would go back!

    Harrison2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Breathtaking views. The location is pretty far from any stores so make sure you grab everything you need before you head up. There is a smaller store for misc items which was nice. There is no air conditioning in the tiny house, which seems pretty common in New Zealand. We had a perfect weekend for weather, but something to keep in mind. The location is one of the best spots in that area. Very beautiful place!

    Tasha2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning views are so calming inspiring and restful all rolled into one. Perfect retreat for a few days away, lots of bush walks nearby and of course magnificent beach. WiFi was good, shower was good, kitchen well stocked with utensils, parking was easy, the eco toilet was quaint and amazingly non smelly lol. Gorgeous loft bed, loved the deck and being up on the hill. A gem of a place and speedy responses from Susannah when I booked and arrived same day were so very appreciated.

  • Piha Skylounge is absolutely amazing. The location is gobsmacking, the room is beautiful with very private facilities and the hosts, Maria and Gabriel are lovely. It must be the best place to stay in Piha because it couldn’t get any better.

    Judith2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We were warmly welcomed and introduced to the premises. We spent 2 nights, enjoyed the great view in the morning and talked to the warm, interested and open hosts. We received excursion tips, food tips and were happy about the informal conversations. We highly recommend a stay and would go for it again if we had more time. Thank you very much Maria & Gabriel!

    Joel2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • What a cool weekend get away! An architecturally designed home on a stunning cliff top location over looking one of New Zealands most famous beaches - but the best part was this was like visiting old friends from the moment we met. A great home, as private or social as you want and really lovely hosts with a great back story - book it!

    Andy2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is an absolute dream! The most incredible view and lovely hospitality! A beautiful place with wonderful touches. Modern, yet earthy beach vibes. Maria and her partner are fantastic hosts. Would love to come back and can’t recommend enough!

Small and cosy, the room has a queen bed and an area to sit to enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast. An evening spent on the deck, or a soak in the outdoor bath star gazing - add to the relaxing space we have created for you. We have taken every step we can to create minimal waste and harm to our environment - With up-cycled decor, the use of natural resources and a composting toilet.
  • So carefully and thoughtfully laid out. Very stylish, comfortable, cosy and private. What a wonderful getaway 🤩

    Catie2020-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • The most magical glancing stay we have had the experience of enjoying. Cannot recommend this little gem of a hideaway enough!

    Sam2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the coolest spots I’ve ever stayed at. It has a tiny home feel and all the amenities you’d need for a couple day getaway. The outdoor shower and bathtub was so nice to get in at night. The space is super clean, cozy and a lot of fun to stay in. My girlfriend and I absolutely loved it and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Elke thought of everything and we’re so glad we had the chance to stay here.

    Josh2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Kowhai Cottage! The hosts were super approachable and easy going, even going out of their way to help me break into my suitcase I had locked myself out of =P A cosy space and a unique experience that I didn’t expect to find in Auckland. The location was great for us as it was away from the busyness of the city, but not too far to head back into town. The personal touches of having some fridge/pantry items available, as well as a bath bomb and candles helped us to feel at home and enjoy the space more. Even though there are other houses on the property it still felt private and didn’t take away from our experience.

    Kat2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful place to relax and unwind. Super romantic and cozy!

    Lauren2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had an excellent stay. The outdoor bath was amazing to relax after our flight. Elke was sweet enough to show us how to make it work. Though our stay was short, we had a simple but good breakfast in our room before hitting the road. Thank you!

  • Elkes beautiful Tiny house is serounded by the most amazing mature Kauri forest and Rimu trees right there. The Tiny house is beautifully decorated lovely linen and a comfortable bed. Great shower in nature and a bath under the stars. The Eco toilet is a joy to use and well set up. Highly recommended to any other guest and to meet Elke is a joy friendly welcoming and anything you need. You will not be disappointed a must and close to Piha surf and Auckland Airport . Thank you for creating this space to enjoy.

    Sweet bohemian style cottage set in a lovely lush garden full of fruit trees native trees flowers & vegetables. Japanese style bridge across fresh water stream leads to the front door. In summer swim at the beach (10min walk) waterfall pools or just relax beside the stream. For cold winter nights there is a wood stove. Head over the hill to Piha & the Piha Cafe for free wifi Piha Store for essentials West Coast Gallery for art crafts & gifts. This a quiet peaceful retreat- please no parties!
    There are 2 double beds & 2 divans so the total number of guests I will accept is 6. This house is an open plan design with the kitchen, dining room & living room on one level. With verandahs leading off from the dining room & the lower bedroom the verandahs then lead onto the large sunny garden . Upstairs is a large bedroom with a huge view of the garden with large sliding windows. Separate toilet, shower & bath. A beautiful fresh water stream dissects the property. The Regional park backs onto the property so generally all you hear are the birds & the stream bubbling away.
    Karekare is a small coastal village surrounded by the Waitakere Regional Park. The beach is a wild surf beach with black volcanic sand. There is a surf patrol in the summer months but not in winter. There are numerous bush & beach & waterfall walks in the Waitakere Ranges. Waitakere Ranges Regional Parkland covers more than 16,000 hectares of native forest and coastline. The park includes 250km of walking and tramping tracks, beaches, breathtaking vistas, spectacular rocky outcrops, waterfalls and cliffs.
  • Such a beautiful cottage, the garden is out of this world, serene, stunning location. Highly recommend

    Hannah2020-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay! Helgas place was so relaxing, the garden was beautiful, and the beds were very comfortable. She even provided a portacot for my baby to sleep in. Will definitely stay here again if we come back to the area. Thank you!!

    Janice2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful sparkling clean home on a magical property with beautiful gardens and a stream. Be sure to feed the eel. Helga will supply the food for him. The house does not have AC or fans and can get rather warm during the day but opening the windows will create a breeze. However, they cannot be left open at night with the lights on or the insects including mosquitoes will invade. There is a wood burning stove that we do not need but would have been delightful. Be very careful on Karekare Road leading into the property as it is very narrow with many blind switchbacks. It is a very quiet and peaceful property a short walk from Karekare Beach and a short drive to Piha where there is a cafe and small store and beautiful shoreline. It is a 30-40 minute drive into the Auckland center. Thank you Helga for helping us get our New Zealand adventure off to a great start.

    Al2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Karekare Stream Cottage is a magical place. The lovely garden is full of native wildlife — wood pigeons, fantails, magpies, and even some pukekos, as well a small stream. Majestic Karekare beach is a five minute walk away. Helga is a gracious, knowledgeable, and communicative host.

    Guy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Helga is very welcome and kind person. She provided us with purified water. Cottage is very lovely and has everything you might need. It is covered from the rest of the world by trees, so you can totally relax there. I would recommend this cottage. The only one thing that I did not like, it is road to Karekare. As for me, it is a little bit dangerous, very narrow, especially when you don't know what crazy person will be driving from the other side, so if you feel yourself not confident while driving, do not go there. Great stay, thank you!

    Mariia2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay and unwind walking distance to beach peaceful, quite

    Trent2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • A subtropical idyll and quality property. Helga's house is well built, thoughtfully constructed and extremely comfortable. We loved the decor and amenities. I'd happily stay here summer or winter. As well, the house is surrounded by a heavenly garden bordered by a stream, and dotted with fruit trees, numerous flowers and herbs. The birds love it too. Their chirruping was the only noise we heard while we were there.

    Yvonne2020-01-16T00:00:00Z

    Karekare, Auckland, New Zealand

    Beachfront/oceanfront hideaway, perfect for 1 or 2, family getaways, or events. Tucked away at the end of South Piha beach – the best location on the most popular surf beach in New Zealand. Magic atmosphere, beautiful ever changing front row view of of beach, ocean and rugged coastline. Steps from the gate to the soft fine sand, the best surfing, patrolled swimming, and wonderful eco-hiking a stone's throw away. Or just relax and watch the world go by, from the deck or the fireside.
    Glass doors open up the entire front of the house, polished wood floors. Panoramic beach and ocean views from the large deck, master bedroom and open plan kitchen/living area (with large conference/dining table). Grounds sand/grass and mature native bush, frontage fenced. Fresh lemons most of the year, herbs in the garden. There are deck chairs and outside table setting. Sheltered from almost all winds, the house is orientated to the weather: In summer, wonderful ancient pohutukawa trees, covered in a mass of red flowers in December, provide shade and frame for the hammock, overlooking the summer bustle from your front row seat on the deck. In winter, full sun: sunbathe on the deck or private roof if it is sunny; if not, toast marshmallows and yourself in front of a roaring fire by the roaring ocean , watching the storms rage over the sea, after a dip, a surf, exploring the beach, tramping, canyoning, dinner party or a night out... with our trashy novels, jigsaws, board games, on demand TV. Peaceful, wild, energizing, inspiring. Romantic for a single, or couple, comfortable for a family up to 6, with overflow sleeping. An atmospheric and photogenic venue for conferences, weddings or get-togethers. Best for 6 or less, up to 12 guests can squeeze upstairs, in the master bedroom, the small bunk room off it, the small double back bedroom, the futon couches (in the living room, out on the deck, under the stars, or in front of the fire). The basement "cave" is rough, but can be used in good weather instead of the couches, (damp in bad weather, there is a dehumidifier, use at your own risk!).
    Piha is a place of power and beauty, pure, clean, beautiful summer or winter. A small environmentally sensitive community, it is a popular hideaway for local and international celebs, filming location for movies, the go-to place for surfers and hikers year round, and a mecca for picnicking and swimming/playing in the surf in summer. You can walk for miles along the beach or spectacular walks through canyons, waterfalls, swimming holes and other natural wonders, they are never crowded in summer, and can be quiet or wild in winter. Surfers are out most days, with winter temperatures around 15 degrees centigrade. Surrounded by the Waitakere ranges (160 square kms of forest reserve), Piha is only 50 minutes drive from Auckland's major commercial centres and airport. Surf, swim, fish or hike through dramatic scenery and NZ's unique, benign, native fauna and flora, meet the locals in the surf in front of our house or at the restaurants and bars (there are social events throughout the year). Find out about New Zealand flora from Jeff at the local native plant nursery, visit the art gallery and library, the local bowling club and tennis court, play games and read books at the house, or just watch the world go by from the deck - or snuggled by the fireside. There is a post office, surf board/fashion/souvenir shops, surfing lessons and various eco-tours including canyoning can be booked online. If you don't feel like cooking, or our "barbecue with a view", there is top quality casual dining or takeaway (including organic) at the Piha Café, RSA, Bowling club, and Surf club. Murrays does eat on the beach takeaways and the Piha Store has gourmet homemade baked goods and frozen meals, milk, newspapers and most supplies if you forget something. There is no supermarket, petrol station, or liquor off-licence at Piha! Make sure you stock up on your way. Countdown supermarket has an online delivery service which is delivered once a week, check their website countdown.co.nz.
  • Vicki’s place was the perfect spot to have my 30th Birthday gathering. All guests loved the stunning home and the location cannot get any better. Vicki is absolutely lovely and welcomed us upon check in. Would highly recommend this place to everyone, whether it be a family, a group of friends or a couple. Would love to stay here again, thank you!

    Chandee2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most beautiful places I have stayed in my life! House photos are very accurate and correctly depict how the house is. The views are breathtaking and cannot be described by words. This house is great for your mental health. Open the doors lay on one the couches and close your eyes and feel the cool sea breeze and listen to the waves crash. Beach is just across the road catch some waves and swim a little bit. In my opinion the beach can also be great for kids when the tide is high there are plenty side pools that are not as dangerous. Some great hikes a long the beach. Take a short trip to kitekite falls it is worth the short hike. Take a swim and stand up behind the waterfall. Bucket-list ☑️ Piha Cafe is a great place to get breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The staff there is super nice! Stop on the way in and get some groceries and supplies and your set.

    Alex2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Vicki is an exceptional host and was always making sure we were comfortable during our stay. The location of the Bach is spectacular with amazing views, sounds you will never hear from the city. Highly recommend for anyone trying to get away for a little holiday or to get out of the city. Really hope to be welcomed back!

    Tyson2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t say enough about this host and the space. When you can go to sleep looking out at Lion Rock and Piha beach, life is good. Go surfing! Contact Phil at the Piha Surf School (NOT the Piha Surf Academy, not locals) Phil and his son Zen are amazing. Vicki was an incredibly gracious host who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. She was quick to respond to any communication and is just a super decent human. The home is such a treat, spacious, comfortable, close to the beach, and at the end of the road. If you’ve watched “800 Words” you’ve already seen Piha beach. Book it already!

    Alexandra2019-10-15T00:00:00Z

    Authentic old style beach house, New Zealanders call a 'Bach'. Very sheltered behind a hill but with views of the west coast ocean (check the surf from the deck) and across the Piha Camping ground, all the way up the Waitakere Ranges. Sit in the hot tub and enjoy the orange sun set, or the stars at night and the call of the native owl - the Ruru (or Morepork)
    Homely NZ style Bach. Walk down to the beach for a surf, head out for a walk in the waitakere ranges and come home to a nice hot spa and beautiful view!
    Places to eat: Piha surf life saving club (5-10 minute walk) Piha RSA (1 min walk) Piha Cafè (5-10 minute walk) Local shop (5-10 minute walk) Things to do 5minute walk to beach Walks - kite kite falls, piha lookout Waitakere ranges walks Playground Tennis club
  • Awesome place to stay in Lockdown 😅. We recieved a great welcome, and Caroline was here to answer our questions !

    Paul2020-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely original bach, within walking distance to the beach, cafes and shops. The deck and spa were awesome, and Caroline was friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay again.

    Sharie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at the bach and can’t wait to be back.

    Clare2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing bach on an iconic NZ beach. Can’t get much better if you are looking for an traditional bach getaway. A stone throw from the RSA (local pub - live music and grub), as well as the beach and a short walk to the waterfalls. Open a good bottle of vino, jump in the spa and let your worries melt away - I did!

    Jamie2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • House was amazing, clean and the location is amazing. Such a lovely escape not too far away from Auckland, the hospitality from Caroline was second to none and will definitely be back !

    My place is close to Piha Beach, Piha Surf Club, Piha Cafe, etc. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the light, the sea views, the decks and beanbags, the 3 mins walk to south beach.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
  • What an absolute dream. Jude is a helpful, hospitable, kind, generous host who responds quickly to messages and does everything he can to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. This is one of the best airbnbs I've ever stayed in: amazingly beautiful spot and a cosy, airy, light-filled, stylishly-restrained space. Sitting on the couch watching the sun set, sitting at the table watching kereru feast outside the window, lying in bed and listening to the waves crashing on the beach just down the road – what a dream.

    Alex2020-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Relax, retreat, privacy, natural surroundings in beautiful NZ native forest, hills, beaches, bush walks...

    Antony2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very nice house and I was comfortable. The view from many windows is the best. But there was a lot of luggage because of the stairs. It's great for surfers as you can walk to the beach and have a shower outside. Thank you for the best hospitality.

    Kaoru2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Can't get a better spot than this - about a 2-minute walk to Piha beach surrounded by lush green bush. The space was spacious and clean with a well-equipped kitchen for your own cooking - necessary as there aren't many dining options in Piha. I could have stayed forever. Thanks Jude.

    Kathie2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Jude’s place! Amazing location and very comfortable space. Host was also very helpful and responsive. Thanks so much Jude!

    Jaclyn2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is an outstanding place to stay. So beautiful - with native bush all around, and a view of the sea. You can hear the Piha waves rolling which was very soothing. Very stylish and comfortable and private. The bed was super comfortable and I fell off to sleep straight away. Thank you. I’ll be back.

    Yvette2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • Tui was a great host , very helpful and the best part of the property was the amazing view. Good location.

    Brad2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful way to enjoy the pride of Aucklands West Coast, Piha. A great outlook view, brilliant location with Mercer Loop track just down the road and situated between Kerekere and Piha surf beaches. Tui is a great host and the cottage has awesome character and charm.

  • We loved Tui's place. Stunning spot and view. Hard to leave that deck and outlook. Hope to return again .

    Luke2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic view from the deck. Friendly and helpful owner. Wonderful place to stay.

  • Tui is a super friendly host. His cottage in Piha has loads of personality and an amazing view! Main bedroom is comfortable and kitchen is well stocked, a Nespresso, and other cooking supplies. But remember to bring food with you—the local shops are pretty expensive ! Really enjoyed our stay here.

    Mirani2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Tui's place is the typical kiwi bach/crib and has stunning views up the coast. The King size bed is super comfortable and the kitchen has most amenities. i would only heed a slight word of caution to be on realistic terms for overseas travellers - this being a typical kiwi bach, the level of finishings are not so refined. Absolutely fine for the average kiwi but thought it merited a bit of clarity for overseas travellers who often expect a certain level. Tui is a great host and a super communicator, offering advice on local activities (walks, surf and beach activities). A really great spot to unwind completely!

  • The space is beautiful, and Jacqui's little touches make it amazing (on top of it being in a great location of course!). She had everything we could need, and offered some great advice about where to grab a bite to eat. Freddie was very cute as well! I'm glad we got to meet him and Jacqui :)

    Victoria2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • There was so great location for surfing. Room is so cute and comfortable. I could enjoy to play with dogs:)

    Daiki2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Insanely beautiful. Super hospitable. With attention to detail. Breathtaking location and view. Perfect all round

    Alex2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Jacqui is a warm and helpful person. She knows a lot about Piha and all attractive places around the village. The apartment has a perfect location. I strongly recommend to stay in her house.

    Osman2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The ground floor of Jacqui’s house and her garden are filled with oriental curios and examples of her weaving art which make for an unusual stay. The 2 bedrooms are great but the fridge, microwave and other facilities are limited. The house is perfectly placed to get to the beaches and the various cafes that offer good food. We can recommend it.

    Alastair2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very nice place in a relaxed atmosphhere

    Sigrid2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • What a find! Such a beautiful spacious apartment. Amazing view from the bedroom. I really liked the reading nook too. And a great shower :) Jacqui is super friendly and helpful. Her house is a fantastic location, so close to the north beach, just a quick walk down a tree lined street. I would love to go back soon.

    Piha, Auckland, New Zealand

    This cabin sits only a little below the Piha lookout giving surf views out as far as Muriwai. Fantastic sunsets all year round and curious birdlife to share it all with. This is a surfer's hut but without the crowds. A hideaway from the main drag. Your hosts, Mike and Erin, are accomodating and happy to leave you alone to enjoy the space but are within cooee if you need anything. This bach is a work in progress but clean, warm and dry. It will only get better each time you visit.
    There is off-road parking available and plenty of space for surf boards and the like.
    Set in a volcanic basin, Piha has good food, coffee, a choice of surf breaks as well as being set in a regional park with many great walks available.

A perfect spot for getting out of the hustle and bustle of the city and yet still close to everything you could need. Wonderful views, a comfy bed and luxurious bathroom made for an exceptional weekend stay. We would 100% recommend staying.

    This one bedroom self contained unit is nestled within the foothills of the Waitakere ranges in West Auckland. The area presents an ideal escape from Auckland city (but is still within travelling distance as a fringe suburb) where guests can explore the famous west coast beaches, walks and bohemian lifestyle and local culture. The neighbourhood is family friendly and safe. As a host, I am happy to greet you, offer suggestions for your stay or leave you to relax in this peaceful setting.
    The one bedroom sleep out with own ensuite is situated within the Waitakere ranges in a quiet semi-rural suburb in West Auckland. The sleep out has been recently refurbished with new carpet and fresh coat of paint. The queen sized bed has a new mattress to ensure a comfortable night's stay. Tea and coffee making facilities are available for guests as well as their own fridge. However there are no other kitchen facilities. There are many other additional extras in the room to ensure your stay is a comfortable one. There are two bed-side units, a wardrobe and cabinet. The room also has a fold out sofa bed for any additional guests needed and coffee table. Guests can relax in their own private courtyard in the garden (with picnic table and sun umbrella) at the end of the day to enjoy a glass of wine. Guests have exclusive access to parking their vehicle in driveway on property. Excellent accommodation for solo travellers, couples and business travellers. PLEASE NOTE: WIFI CAN BE INTERMITTENT DUE TO STAYING IN THE WAITAKERES. Please advise the host, and the connection can be reset. The wifi connection works better outside in the courtyard.
    The accommodation is located in a very special area of Auckland. Guests come here to relax and escape the hustle of Auckland city (some 25 km away). The area is surrounded with native trees and local bird song - a joy to wake up to in the morning. There are surf beaches and walking tracks in the Waitakere ranges. There are some good coffee places and restaurants in Titirangi village ( a 10 minute drive away) as well a diverse range of takeaways. New Lynn (a 15 minute drive away) has a shopping mall, cinema complex, train links and further places to eat out. PLEASE NOTE: THE LOCAL SUPERETTE IS IN TITIRANGI AND A DAIRY IN LAINGHOLM. THESE CLOSE BY 8PM. Other supermarket options are in New Lynn and open later.
  • Great quiet place for a free weekend

    Константин2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very tidy place, close to the Titirangi Village, definitely can't fault it! Matt was very fast with his responses particularly when it was a very last minute decision for a short weekend escape from home.

    Melissa2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant place to stay. Would totally recommend

    Eloise2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Cute spot off the beaten track. Still 40 minutes to Piha but that’s largely because of the natural reserve you have to drive through to get there. It was super clean however and Matt was a great host. We would definitely stay again.

    Lauren2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Little paradise, hiden in one of the most beautifulest places of New Zeland. We loved all the small details in the house, ot was beautifuly decorated. And had everything you need. Aswell it was amazing to wake up to birds singing!

    Sandra2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Matt's place the second time and it was just as good as the first time. We would always come back again.

    Usch2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, nice little spot for quiet and nature.

    Lucy2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Really cosy sleepout in the heart of the restful Waitakeres, and just 5 min from Titirangi Village for all your needs. And Matt is very friendly and welcoming. Come prepared to chill out! I can recommend having fish’n’chips down at Laingholm Beach from the takeaway there - classic Kiwi relaxation.

  • Photos will never do this view justice. Absolutely stunning. Kathy was so friendly and very quick to respond to us. The accomodation was exceptionally clean and had everything we could have needed. I’d love to come back for another stay in future.

    Rosina2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The location and the views make this Airbnb incredible. The photos don’t even do the scenery justice. The location to the beach is fantastic. Would loved to have stayed longer here!

    Storm2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • I chose this house to surf on Piha Beach. From the terrace you can see the best sunsets and the night sky full of stars. It took about 45 minutes by car from the city, but it was an unexpected experience. You can see the waves from the nearby parking lot, about 10 minutes drive to the beach.

    Shigeo2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely place to stay. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Amazing view.
