Auckland Long Bay Beach Home

A mere 3 mins from Auckland's premier and most popular beach in the country - Long Bay Beach & Reserve. Long Bay Beach is an amazing 1km-long beach, with a cliff-top walkway, views of the Hauraki Gulf, safe swimming/snorkeling, playground, picnic/bbq areas & a marine reserve.
The cottage is set on a secluded large section and offers a tranquil and beautiful place to enjoy a holiday. Huge backyard for the kids with an expansive deck that gets soaked in sunshine. Entertain on the deck with the large BBQ supplied. The back yard is fully fenced and pets are allowed by request.
There are two bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other with 2 single beds. There is also a fold-out sofa bed in the lounge. The lounge has a great fireplace and heat pump so you can snuggle up in the evening and watch the flames crackle.
The cottage has a TV, fridge/freezer, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine along with a bath and shower.
Located in a safe, coastal, neighborhood surrounded by quality homes. Ideal short stay fully furnished accommodation for holiday makers, corporate travellers & families with children. A great place to call home where children will be happy while you're on holiday, business, or between homes.
We love life on the coastal North Shore and are more than happy to give you a tour of the area, shout you some amazing kiwi Fish n Chips and a glass of wine...or we can leave you in peace, totally up to you!

Long Bay certainly lives up to its name. This seaside reserve includes a kilometre-long sandy beach that gentle slopes down to the waters of a coastal marine reserve. Green hillsides provide a buffer from the neighbouring suburbs and a broad, flat grassed area with large shady trees flanks the beach along the length of the bay. There's plenty of room to throw a ball, fly a kite or simply relax in the sun. And it's a safe beach for swimming, so a refreshing dip is on the agenda during summer and autumn.
The parkland continues north of the beach for about two kilometres before turning inland along a broad river. A walking track passes along the sandstone cliff tops offering panoramic views across the Hauraki Gulf. The trail leads through patches of native forest and side tracks reveal remnants of World War II gun emplacements. The original farm homestead has been restored and is open for visitors.
Facilities at the park include toilets, changing rooms, showers and barbecue sites.
