Wake up to the sound of birds and wander down to the beach to watch the sunrise over the bay. Lovely self contained studio apartment on the ground level of our house with 2 door private access off the driveway and carport. Cockle Bay beach is a 200 metre pleasant stroll away and the beautiful Mangemangeroa Reserve walk nearby.
This is a modern bed/sitting room with a separate kitchenette with shower and separate toilet. There is a comfortable Queen bed and sofa bed.
The sheltered tidal bay is within a 200 metre walk and a conservation walkway is nearby. The shops/cafes etc at Howick village is a 5 minute drive or about a 20 minute walk. A car would provide easier access to nearby Howick village and Botany town centre which is a 10 minute drive. However there is a bus service across the road. Howick village has many bars, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and a Saturday morning farmers market.and Botany town centre has every shop that you could want!
Cockle Bay is 20K southeast of Auckland city and accessible by car or bus which would take between 40 to 60 minutes depending on traffic. The bus stop to take you into the city centre is just across the road.
There are also many other places of interest nearby. We have Whitford countryside bordering us to the east and beaches beyond and Howick beach and the Buckland Beach peninsular very close by. There is also a ferry service from Half moon bay into Auckland city and to the fabulous Waiheke Island.
We can negotiate longer stays which may suit holiday makers or new immigrants wanting to become familiar with the area.
Guests will have their own key and access . Off street parking is available. Bus stop across the road. There is a carport along side the studio which can be used to park your car or to be used as an outdoor area with table and chairs. You can also park a car along side the studio on our driveway. You would be welcome to use the garden area at the back of the house.
