Otros aspectos destacables
From your accommodation you have easy access to the extensive network of more than 140 walking and hiking tracks that criss-cross the Waitakere Ranges. These cover a range of habitats from lush native rainforests and scenic coastlines to rocky shores and windswept black-sand beaches. Many rank among the Great Walks in New Zealand. Some are gravel paths or even private roads while some are very basic tramping tracks. Many of these Waitakere walks cross or intersect, giving the flexibility to plan a walk to match your available time, level of experience and stamina.

The area is private and for the exclusive use of guests, with the communal area shared with other Airbnb guests on the property. Hosts Alec and Philippa are on hand to welcome you, to give advice on walks and tracks and to provide local knowledge.
