Angela & Te Kani Te Wiata, thoroughly enjoy sharing their paradise in Kaukapakapa, Rodney, Auckland, New Zealand, with guests from all over the Country, but also those coming from abroad.  The breakfast materials provided are wholesome, organic eggs from their chickens, fresh seasonal produce from their garden or orchard.  West Road, is situated a few kilometres from the Kaukapakapa Village up in the hills.  It overlooks the Kaipara Harbour, one of the largest harbours in the World, which covers 947 square kilometres of exposed mudflats and sandflats at low tide.  Kaukapakapa is on the alternative State Highway 16 route to Northland and the Bay of Islands.  We have the luxury of being  just a mere 46.7 kilometres from Auckland CBD.  We would love to have you stay and enjoy our beautiful paradise in rural Kaukapakapa, just 15 minutes from the Silverdale interchange on State Highway 1, Auckland. Magnificent sunsets await your 2 bedroom boutique accommodation.  There is a separate entrance through a charming cottage garden into your own private courtyard, alternative access can be via a level walkway through the pool area and a pretty gate into your own courtyard.


Relax and admire the magnificent Kaipara Harbour views and sunsets
