Freshly renovated, Kereru Cottage is a delightfully quirky, cosy place to stay in the sunny Whangaparaoa peninsula, just 30 minutes from Auckland city.
Situated high on a ridge looking northward out across Stanmore Bay, you will enjoy the peaceful, semi-rural setting surrounded by trees, with a view of the sea. Kereru Cottage is a standalone building with its own driveway and garden, offering your own private space.
Suitable for families with young children, couples and small groups.
Come up the outside stairs and you enter Kereru Cottage through the sunny conservatory, which provides a warm and sheltered space for summer dining.
Inside, find the cosy lounge, master bedroom with double bed, second bedroom with another double bed, and semi-ensuite bathroom (accessible from either bedroom). The sofa in the lounge opens to provide a third bed if required.
A heatpump/air conditioner keeps the cottage toasty warm in winter and cool in summer. The lounge has a new LED TV with access to Netflix and Prime Video included, plus Freeview HD.
The kitchen is equipped with an oven, microwave, tea and coffee facilities, and a dishwasher. Some breakfast foods, milk and basic cooking supplies are included.
Guests have full use of the cottage (except garage). There is a grass area for kids to play, and space to park several cars.
Linen (bedding and towels) is included. For longer stays we can provide a laundry service (once per week).
Your hosts Simon and Sophy live in the house next door. We'll happily help you with any questions during your stay, or respect your privacy if you prefer to keep to yourselves.
Choice of beaches nearby. Pool and leisure facilities at Stanmore Bay. Shopping at Whangaparaoa Plaza. Restaurants and supermarket up the road.
Native birds including tui and fantails frequent the bush around the property. If you're lucky, you might spot the namesake kereru (native woodpigeon)!
