This home will WOW even the most discerning guests. It is situated on Auckland's most elevated, picturesque and exclusive non-exit street, perched in the world's only urban rainforest.
The property boasts breath taking, helicopter views over Auckland's Harbour Bridge, Viaduct Harbour, Sky Tower, Manukau Harbour, Rangitoto Island and right through to the Coromandel Peninsula. And at night you'll be captivated by the twinkling lights of Auckland City right in your feet.
Discover the sound of silence - interrupted only by the flapping of a hawk's wings. Detox your lungs with 100% pure New Zealand rainforest air. Wash your body with pure, freshly caught rain water. Venture out in the unbeaten tracks of our own piece of the Waitakere Ranges' rainforest, which is a National Park. Take a front seat at Mother Nature's ever changing weather show from the cosy and warm (with a powerful heat pump in winter / air conditioner in summer) comfort of your own 'private VIP booth'. Be one of the first people in the world to witness the new day break. And if you get your timing right, you might actually experience the crisp feeling of walking through the clouds.
And your sensory stimulation continues once you go inside the home. Have you ever shared the sheets with a roaring tiger (I'm talking about the striking, 100% cotton duvet / doona cover - see picture) in a massive, round, red leather, king size bed that could get Hugh Hefner jealous? Well. Here's your chance to tick that box off your things to do list.
Transport yourself to the future in your very own round shower with a round rain shower head (with real rain water coming out of it!) and numerous spray heads, led - disco lights and in-built speakers and numerous radio stations to satisfy even the most dedicated kareoke singers.
Keep up to date with all your favourite cable shows on the big-screen TV with surround sound - movies and sport channels are provided at request and cost extra. Surf the net using inhouse broadband wireless internet.
Unleash the hidden chef in you in your own black granite top kitchen - with all cooking equipment supplied... or simply walk down to the restaurant & bar at the end of the street with just as fabulous views of the city and a fire place during winter!

Most of our guests hire a car. But some take the Airbus from the Airport to Auckland City - which is approx USD$25 per person and takes about 40 min and you get to see a bit of Auckland on the way. And then they take the train from Auckland City to Sunnyvale - takes approx 40 min and costs about USD$7 per person. And then we can pick you up for free from the train station, which is 10min away from our property.
By car - we are about 12 min away from the iconic black sand surf beaches; 40 min away from downtown Auckland and approx 50 min away from the Auckland Airport.
Here's just one of our testimonials:
"Certainly lives up to the name million dollar views - amazing. Really nice place to spend the weekend, very private and peaceful. Montana Wine trail walk was great, as was Elevation resturant at end of road and Toby's in Titirangi. We would highly recommend others to stay here..." Vanessa P, Auckland

From start to finish, this place made our trip absolutely worth while. The views during the day and night are unforgettable, the granite kitchen was spotless and modern, the free internet made it easy for us to find local attractions, the owners are super friendly and we will be 100% going back to this property... very comfortable and warm. We have stayed in many different properties in New Zealand, and this place is easily the best value for money we've stayed in... it's very relaxing, great atmosphere and has everything you need. Also this accomodation is close to Piha beach. A big thank you to the owners!
