The SpaceThe accommodation available is the lower storey of our home and family business - a retreat centre. At most, 8 can sleep comfortably. The rooms look out on the pool/deck area and to the bush on the property. It is very peaceful. There is a shower room, another room with shower, bath and double vanity and a separate toilet with hand-basin. There is no sink in the kitchenette area, but all you need for simple meal preparation; microwave, slow cooker, electric frypan and barbecue is available. The saltwater pool is heated about half of the year. The spa is always on and the infrared sauna is amazing. Guest AccessThe bathroom & kitchen facilities, pool, spa and sauna are readily available and are shared with other guests, though we would not accept bookings from more than 2 separate couples/singles. Interaction with GuestsWe appreciate that many guests like to have their own space but we are always happily available for assistance and can offer meals or therapies if advance notice is given. The NeighborhoodOur retreat is in the foothills of the Waitakere ranges, 2 - 3 minutes past Swanson railway station and 25 minutes to Auckland CBD. Kumeu with its great range of vineyards is 15 minutes by car, as is stunning Bethells Beach. There are numerous bush walks in the nearby Waitakere Ranges Regional Park, some just a few minutes drive away as well as a good selection of golf courses in the area. There are several excellent cafes a short drive away. The nearest - Railway station Café in Swanson - can be walked to in 30 minutes. Getting AroundPublic transport is limited. You can get a train at Swanson and be in the city in 50 minutes. We offer complimentary pick-up or drop-off to the station. Whilst we often have retreat guests without a vehicle, if you want to explore bush, beach, vineyards etc a vehicle is necessary. Other Things to NoteOur primary intention is to offer quite retreat so there is no guest television. The accommodation is particularly well configured for a family gathering, or other group get together.

    The Space1. If your holiday needs any of the following you have come to the right place: binoculars, a telescope, an abacus, lava lamp, plasma ball, Balinese xylophones, tarot cards, large DVD collection of obscure kung fu movies and mainstream blockbusters, overwhelming amount of books on all sorts of topics but mostly Eastern spiritualism and weird hocus-pocus 2. There are also a lot of places for a lot of people to sleep (up to 13): Bedroom 1: King size bed, with a single bed stored underneath that rolls out Bedroom 2: Queen size bed Bedroom 3: Two single beds, with another single bed stored underneath that rolls out Small living room: Foldout sofa sleeps one Main living room: One of the couches is long enough to sleep one person comfortably Extra mattresses: We have 3 extra single mattresses that we can pull out of storage for you if you need them. There's space on the floor in both living rooms and the dining room, to place these mattresses. Guest AccessYou'll have the whole of the upstairs to yourself with your own kitchen and bathroom. Laundry facilities (in the garage) and driveway, garden etc is shared between yourselves and Joy, Brian & Sue-Li who live in the downstairs areas. Our driveway can park up to 4 or even 5 vehicles, it's also possible to park across the road and down the street. Interaction with GuestsJoy and her partner Brian are in the downstairs rear flat ready to answer any questions you might have. I'm (Sue-Li) sometimes living in the downstairs front flat, sometimes travelling overseas - but I'm always available on email if you have any problems or questions. There's also an elderly cat, Ishtar, who can often be found in the back garden. The Neighborhood3 minute drive to the local train station (Swanson) with regular half-hour services to Auckland Central (or a 25 minute drive during offpeak traffic times to Auckland Central) 4 minute drive to Swanson Village (petrol station, liquor store, butcher etc) 6 minute drive to Fresh Choice Ranui (supermarket) 10 minute drive or 3 train stops to Westfield Henderson (mall, cinema complex) 3-4 minute drive to two different golf courses - Redwood Park and Waitakere 4 minute drive to Cascade Kauri Park - walking tracks through ancient forests, Fairy Falls 15 minute drive to Bethells Beach, Lake Wainamu and huge black sand dunes 15 minute drive to Kumeu District: vineyards and cafes 20 minute drive to bohemian Titirangi Village: cafes, art galleries, pottery 20 minute drive to Arataki Visitor Centre with stunning views over Manukau Harbour, lots of info about native wildlife and walking tracks 25 minute drive to Piha, famous surfing beach and a favourite for many Aucklanders 25 minute drive to Muriwai Beach and gannet colony 25 minute drive to Auckland's city centre (outside of peak traffic times) 45 minute drive to Auckland Airport (outside of peak traffic times) Getting AroundIMPORTANT: If you are staying in this area, you will need your own vehicle. The village / shops / train station is only a 3 to 4 minute drive away but if you're walking it takes half an hour and there are steep parts! Taxi service is patchy out here too, I'm afraid. Other Things to Note-- PLEASE NOTE - SUMMER GUESTS: Our lovely forest setting unfortunately means that along with the treetop views and the native bird sightings, there are mosquitoes, especially at sunset and night time. So when I lived there I was in the habit of keeping the glass doors and windows shut when it's getting dark and the lights are on. (In New Zealand it's not common to install bug screens on windows like it is in some other countries, perhaps because it's only hot for a quarter of the year.) Also! There is a trick to having a mosquito-free sleep on hot summer nights in this house. What I do is close the windows and doors, spray the room (there's bug spray located under the kitchen sink - or please ask us downstairs for more) and get the fan out (fans are in bedroom cupboards) for a nice, cool, bug-free sleep :) PLEASE NOTE - WINTER GUESTS: In New Zealand, most houses (especially those built in the 1970s) did not have central heating put in, so it’s quite common for houses here to be heated with freestanding heaters. Some of our guests who are less familiar with NZ have found this surprising, so I shall describe the heating situation as below: There is a freestanding oil heater in each living room and bedroom. Bathrooms have wall mounted heaters. There's no heater for the hallway or toilet, but there are extra heaters and extension cords for you to set this up if you wish. You can leave the heaters going all day/night, we don't mind (but maybe set them to the lower setting). We also have a wood burning fireplace, which we can help you with if you want. OH AND ONE FINAL THING :) I'm very keen to give people as accurate of an impression of the house as possible before they book. This house is from the 1970s. All the appliances are new-ish, the carpet is quite new and in good condition, but the sofa upholstery is not in perfect condition and the wallpaper, light fittings etc are the originals from the 70s. In the words of one of our previous guests: "The photos describing the house are as accurate as photos can be. They do not show the wear and tear a house has undergone. If you like clean and modern and chic, this place is not for you. If you like a quiet and peaceful place surrounded by new age books and with a large DVD collection to watch in the evenings, then this place is perfect."

Listen to the bird life, meet the steer in the paddock. Relax in the spa, or swim in the pool during the warmer months. For walkers tackling the Hillary Trail, this is a possible overnight stay. By arrangement, we would be happy to pick up walkers from Bethell's car park. A good variety of local food places are just a 15 minute drive away in Kumeu - pizza, Indian, steak, cafes, and much more. Better yet, why not try my wife Nuttha's authentic Thai dinners - she is always happy to cook! (Have a romantic meal in the cottage) Please be advised that there is no cellphone coverage and no wi-fi at the cottage - only the great outdoors. Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;
