Stedet

We created our self contained & private apartment from spare rooms in the original 'Aorangi Orchard' homestead.
THE ROOMS & FACILITIES.
A generous patio leads to a classic French door entrance for the apartment only. The entrance is into the kitchenette [2X3m] which contains a large microwave, benchtop oven, fridge, hotplate, dishwasher, toaster, table & chairs etc. A small sitting room [3X3.6m] contains a comfortable sofa bed with inner sprung mattress and LED TV, radio, etc. Also there is a bathroom - toilet, hand basin, bath, shower over bath etc. and a main bedroom [3.6X4m] containing a comfortable queen sized also lamps, hallstand, heater, etc. All windows look out onto sweeping lawns and garden, where a round garden table with chairs and sun umbrella is located within easy reach of the kitchenette.
THE GARDENS & GROUNDS.
Guests will be able to explore our large park like gardens with croquet lawn, and half acre boutique vineyard. There is also a petanque pitch and large garden table available for your use.
OUR SERVICES.
We will happily provide information, directions & recommendations for the many attractions & features of this far west Auckland area. We do not supply cooked breakfasts but if requested breakfast foods can be provided - homemade or grown if possible.
KUMEU & HUAPAI TOWNSHIPS.
Although we are located on a country road the Huapai township is only 1.8km away and the Kumeu township is a further 0.5km.
A 3 to 4 minute drive or a 20 to 30 minute walk. The townships provide shops and services of most types and have about 10 cafes and restaurants. Huapai has a public library and an arts centre.
THE AREA'S REAL ATTRACTIONS.
However the attractions that make this area unique are mostly located outside of the townships. The Kumeu wine and vineyard area has six renowned NZ wineries and a number of smaller ones all from less than a km to 10 km [15 minutes] away. Some wineries have award winning restaurants attached and there are about eight facilities catering to country weddings and other events. One of Auckland's best boutique breweries is 6.7km away [10min] - 'Hallertau Brew Bar & Restaurant, a further 1min drive is 'The Riverhead' one of the best of the 'NZ Classic pub network'. Also in the area is the best Auckland mountain bike park, a tree tops climbing park, horse treks, 4 wheel drive treks, paint ball adventure parks, golf clubs and driving ranges.
Two of Auckland's iconic west coast beaches are little more than 20 minutes away [Bethells & Muriwai] each with wonderful wilderness areas and other special features & attractions. Muriwai also has a Gannet colony where you can have an up close view of the birds nesting.
To cap it all off, Auckland CBD is approximately 25 minutes down the motorway [out of rush hour] or you could catch a ferry or bus!!
For a day exploring downtown Auckland we recommend the ferry.

First, Chris and Tonia - You cannot get better than those two! They started us off with a supply of fruit, jelly, bread and coffee and an overview of the accommodations including access to a washer and dryer. The cottage is as you see in the pictures. It's a quiet, rustic romantic setting yet close to everything in the Auckland area. Within a few minute drive you are within the town of Kumeu with lots of very nice cafe's, restaurants, wineries, gas, locally grown food markets. Another 10 minutes west is a large modern shopping mall (If you are into that kind of thing). Within 20 minutes South East of the cottage you are at a terrific beach where you can play, lay, surf or even go on a horseback ride. The cottage is also on the cusp of a large tropical regional park that are equal to any rain forest you will find with lots of trails and waterfalls to explore. 30 minutes out you are in downtown Auckland with all that a modern international city can offer. OR driving 30 miles Northwest lots of beaches and wineries to choose from. Museum, Horse Racing , Zoo it's all within a 30 minute radius. Auckland, the city is beautiful however a bit congested. We really liked the ability to move around freely while outside the city limits. Getting back to the cottage. Wifi is included, cable TV is not. If watching TV is important to you there is only approximately 10 channels to choose from including Chinese, India and American type channels. The good news is there is a collection of DVD's, a HDMI connector and cable to hook up a laptop or other type of device so that you can watch TV through the internet. There is also a car port to park your car, which is nice. If the above appeals to you then you've found a very good value. We stayed there 3 weeks and if given the chance would stay again.

Chris was more than accommodating in meeting us at the house and showing us around the property. Small, comfortable and cozy are the best words that come to mind. The bread, milk, and spreads were also a lovely surprise and definitely made the following morning that much easier. We were in town for a wedding at a nearby winery so the location was ideal for us.

Thanks for hosting our family during our 10 days holiday getaway. This would be our first trip with our 16 month old son and our first time using AirBnB. Thank you Chris & Tonia for having us and giving us a wonderful and pleasant time during our stay in Kumeu. The place is surrounded by lush greens and private vineyards own by Chris & Tonia. My father-in-law, my wife and my son definitely enjoyed their first time stay in NZ and experience first hand on the friendliness of kiwis. Thanks for the own made wine, my wife and i enjoyed it straight away that night, the wine did not make it through the next day ;) The place is very quiet and wonderful getaway from the buzzing city life. NewWorld (supermarket), cafe and takeaway are about 5 minutes drive from the house. Plenty of food and winery around the place. Will not get hungry nor sober anytime. The bedroom, living room and bathroom all are clean and kitchen is furnished with all the essentials (milk, tea, bread). Will drop by this place again in our future visit to Auckland. Thanks Chris & Tonia :)

Tonia & I have lived on this property for some time. Originally I was orcharding and later changed to hydroponic greenhouse production of roses. Tonia was the photographer for the University College of Education. We have recently retired.
We enjoy living in this part of Auckland with its variety of attractions and activities and yet it is less than 25 minutes drive to Auckland CBD. We will be happy to provide all the information we can about the area to our guests as well as directions & recommendations.
Tonia & I have a wide variety of interests; arts, books, films, travel, good food, ecology and of course the wine we produce from our vineyard and our garden.
Tonia is a fluent French speaker and a lot of our travel has been in France & other parts of Europe.
