General overview

In 2018 we extended our original house so now we have 2 living areas, 4 bedrooms, study, 2 bathrooms and a private outdoor area with tropical plants, located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighborhood.

The space

* Bedroom 1 with a king size bed (165cm, medium) + ensuite + walk-in-wardrobe * Bedroom 2 - double bed (136cm, soft) * Bedroom 3 - single bed (90cm, firm) * Bedroom 4 - queen size futon sofa bed (155cm, firm) All mattresses are organic latex. We have a few board and card games, Lego, Barbies etc., and an outdoor pingpong table, pilates equipment as well as 3 adult scooters with helmets (not electric) and an inflatable paddleboard.

Guest access

Two sets of steps outside the main door. Our house has two levels with lounge, kitchen, laundry area, bathroom, playroom, study, 3 bedrooms on the first floor, master bedroom with ensuite on the second floor. There is a garage under the house.

Notes

We have a rescue cat, Cleo, that we would kindly ask you to feed, once a day (she has a biscuit feeder). She is healthy, really easygoing and uses a cat flap. If you wanted to stay away for a couple of nights, we can organize our neighbour to look after her. There are lots of places of interest within an hour's drive: *Mission Bay and St Heliers area (cafes, restaurants, picnic spots, beaches, kayak or paddleboard hire) * Waitakere Ranges for long and short walks or hikes (Kitekite Falls, Mercer Bay Loop, etc.) * Muriwai beach with gannet colony, surfing * Piha, Karekare and Bethels beaches (location set for movie The Piano) with black volcanic sand, surfing * Woodhill forest mountainbiking and horse trails * Mt Eden, Mt Wellington and Mt Mangere volcano walks * One Tree Hill walks, playgrounds and Stardome Observatory * Auckland War Memorial Museum * Auckland ZOO * Maritime Museum * Sky Tower ( the highest in the southern hemisphere) * Shakespeare and Tawhranui Regional Parks with beautiful beaches (1.5h) * Waitawa Regional Park * Exhibiton Drive Path, Zig Zag track, Mt Atkinson Lookout (located in Titirangi, 5 min drive from home) https://walksinauckland.com/tag/zigzag-track/ * Tiritiri Matangi Bird Sanctuary (access by ferry), Rangitoto Island, Waiheke Island
