We invite you to step out of the city and relax …

For 30 years, we have enjoyed developing our property sustainably. In 2008 we decided it would be nice to share it with others across New Zealand and from around the world.  So we built a one bedroom, self-contained and elegant cottage which is nestled in New Zealand’s native bush of the Waitakere Ranges (on Auckland’s wild West Coast).



Now Bush Sand and Sea is a reality and we welcome your stay, whether for a few nights, a week or a month!  Sorry, we are not suitable for babies, young children or pets.
