A stylishly renovated bach which is super comfortable and peaceful. Overlooking the Mahurangi Harbour and capturing the north facing all day sun. So close to Auckland City yet within 45minutes you are in a beautiful calm haven and in a relaxed state of mind.
In just 45mins from the centre of Auckland city you can be in the peaceful treetops and bird song overlooking the tranquil Mahurangi harbour with north facing sun and enjoying the stylish comfort and serenity of Tui Treetops.
Everything is yours when you stay, including 2 kayaks that you can walk down from the bottom of our section straight to the bay for a paddle or a swim. There are plenty of short and longer wonderful walks, such as 10mins to Opahi bay and from there a 40min walk at low tide around the bays on mostly flat rock and beaches back to Jamieson Bay and Tui Cottage. Exploring the coastline by foot at the lowering tide or by kayak is spectacular at Mahurangi Harbour.
While you can use your feet or water to get around most of Jamieson & Opahi Bay, you will need a car to get around further and there is no public transport in Mahurangi West. Puhoi is a 8min drive away, including the famous Puhoi Pub, the Puhoi Cheese Factory and the Puhoi River Kayak adventures. Otherwise its off to Matakana (20mins) on Saturday for the markets and vineyards. Or Warkworth (15mins) or Orewa (15mins) for more standard supplies from the supermarket... but best to bring everything you might need so you can thoroughly unwind.

My husband and I have more recently fallen in love with the little known treasure, Mahurangi West, and now have the pleasure of owning a Bach in this beautiful part of New Zealand. We hope you enjoy what we have done to Tui Cottage to make it a stylish and comfortable wee getaway pad. I usually work in the Film Industry as a Line Producer and my husband is a Cinematographer. However I have recently returned to university with the aim to start a new career in architecture.
We live in Auckland city with our two children, life is very busy and so whenever possible we all nip away to Tui Cottage to decompress and recharge, which happens rather quickly, which is why we love it and we hope you do too.
