“Perfect location for an escape from reality” The directions to get to Waiwurrie were perfect, the farmhouse and room we stayed in were wonderful. Vickie and Roger looked after us perfectly, and the catering was sublime. The views are second to none of the Bay of Islands, and we truly did not want to leave.

City-Bush Retreat: Fully Self-catering Private, Serviced Apartment

Waitakere City apartment

  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom
  • sleeps 2

“A Serene and Magnificent Hideaway” This wonderful apartment, just minutes away from auckland, is our favorite hideaway for settling into New Zealand life following a grueling 14 hour flight from our home country. There is nothing the hosts won't do to ensure a comfortable and warm welcome and ongoing stay (including a fresh supply of "basics" and treats in the refrigerator and cupboard). Situated very privately at the top of an upscale home, this apartment is very tastefully decorated and has all the modern conveniences needed for a "home away from home". When we visit City Bush, we like to eat in and dine out in equal proportions. The small village of Titirangi, within walking distance, or a 5 minute drive from City Bush boasts a few excellent restaurants, or we travel the 20 minutes to the viaduct downtown or to Ponsonsby to take in some of the excellent fare offered by those areas. But we find it truly difficult to leave this accommodation once we arrive. It is the perfect place to unwind. It literally feels as though you are in a "cabin in the woods". Surrounded by the lush, local vegetation (including a commanding view of an ancient kauri tree) and the ongoing sounds of birdsong, it is a perfect retreat.

“Cute, convenient and cosy.” This was a comfortable and convenient unit in a quiet location. Well suited for myself and 2 children. There was a lovely shared garden. This is relatively close to the beach and Milford shops. Ilan was very helpful and accessible to sort out issues. I would happily stay here again rather than stay in a motel.

“Fabulous Home - Perfect Location on the North Island, New Zealan” What a fabulous home. This one story home is modern, light, airy, beautifully furnished and has a fully equipped kitchen. Beautiful decking off the main living area and 2 of the bedrooms offer fabulous views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards. We loved sitting on the deck, sipping a glass of the local Sauvignon Blanc, eating the local cheeses while enjoying the view and amazing privacy. We did not want to leave. The home is conveniently located within easy driving distance to the towns of Warkworth and Matakana, and close to beautiful National Parks, hiking and beaches. We will definitely return and will recommend this 5 star private home to all of our friends!

“Just perfect!” Our stay was amazing! We arrived to spend a weekend out of the city, and this place was perfect - private & peaceful. We were so impressed with the service - just the right amount, they were there to help, but did not intrude. The unit it's self was well fitted and was much more than I had expected. Will defiantly stay again! - hopefully very soon. thank you :)

About North Island

The magnificent coastline, sprawling farmlands, and political history make North Island, New Zealand a must visit for any world traveler. With central tourism cities like Auckland and Wellington, North Island gives travelers a full picture of what life and adventure is like in New Zealand. Volcanic and geothermal terrains dot the landscape, which gives New Zealand its world renowned beauty. Made famous through The Lord of the Rings films, New Zealand tourism has grown exponentially this decade.

Auckland: The oldest city in New Zealand, and probably its most well known is Auckland. An urban/vacation hybrid - Auckland is the transportation hub of North Island with a city feel, but also within short driving distance of gorgeous beaches. With a Polynesian background and atmosphere, along with a perpetually sunny climate, Auckland fashions itself as a cultural mainstay, with a twist of adventure or relaxation at every turn. The first thing you’ll notice is the natural beauty of Auckland, including volcanoes, black sand beaches, and the rolling hills of wine country. The city also offers a wild nightlife scene, some favorite spots for tourists being the Wynyard Quarter or City Works Depot.

Wellington: Lonely Planet calls Wellington “the coolest little capital in the world.” Nestled in the southernmost part of North Island, Wellington offers a gourmet food experience unlike any other area in New Zealand due to its proximity to the sea. Enjoy the many museums and fine art establishments in Wellington, or chill out on the inner city beach, Oriental Bay. Wellington served as the makeshift home for the cast and crew of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, with many of its beautiful scenery being shot here. You can view the entire city from the summit of Mount Victoria, or just people watch on the ground from bustling Courtney Place.

Bay of Islands: If you love fishing and boating, you’ll want to stay in the Bay of Islands on North Island, New Zealand. A three hour drive from Auckland lands you in this picturesque area. It is also an area steeped in history as it is the first European settlement on the island. Fun fact: a 2006 study showed the Bay of Islands having the second bluest sky in the world, outside of Rio di Janeiro.

When visiting the North Island, New Zealand it is probably your smartest option to stay in a vacation rental, rather than a hotel. With hundreds of options on FlipKey alone, you’ll have a much better chance of experiencing New Zealand like a local when staying in a rental. With the privacy, space, and amenities of home, a vacation rental offers a more affordable alternative to traditional hotels. Look around at some of the properties offered on FlipKey and you’ll be sure to find a vacation rental that suits your needs on North Island.

Black Fern Matakana Luxury Accommodation overlooking Ascension Estate
Fantastic!

we wanted a place for our last weekend for a while with our daughters. This place was amazing! everything we wanted was there : the heated pool, spacious, warm; the house spacious, warm, and we felt at home straight away; the kitchen is wonderful with everything you need; the beds are great; and the pool area blew us away! The fire, the full kitchen from fridge to dishwasher, easy to create a great ambiance. well done. We will be back! Thank you very much for sharing such a fantastic place. Odilesee more
City-Bush Retreat: Fully Self-catering Private, Serviced Apartment
An exquisite apartment in paradise

City Bush Retreat is a perfect paradise! The location is superb: easy access to Auckland via road or train; set in the beautiful bush with wonderful mountain walks on the doorstep, close to pretty little beaches; and the village of Titirangi up the road with great cafes, galleries and shops. The apartment is supremely well-equipped, comfortable, spotlessly clean, and has easy parking. Three sets of double French doors onto the deck 'invite' the bush into the apartment in a tranquil and magical way. The deck is also a great place to do yoga, read a book, or have a BBQ. Can't speak highly enough.,,see more

The Cheeky Tui Holiday Cabin, Lake Tarawera
home away from home

Six of us stayed at The Cheeky Tui for the weekend and LOVED our stay. It was so exciting pulling up to the house, what a lovely area! The house is really welcoming, it has a nice family feel! It POURED with rain the whole time, so we stayed inside all weekend and sat by the fire, played board games (which are provided and owned by The Cheeky Tui) and enjoyed hanging around the BBQ (under shelter). We cant wait to go back in the summer and go out fishing in the magnificent Lake Tarawera, then come 'home' to The Cheeky Tui and cook our catch!! There is a lovely garden to enjoy and its just so peaceful. SUCH a great price for a holiday home that provides so much comfort, kayaks and bikes and is looked after beautifully. It is a down to earth place where everybody can feel at home. We don't have children, but kids would LOVE it, it is the perfect space for them to run around safely. Also, it is absolutely priceless dealing with such kind people like Caroline and Martin who own it. We will definitely be using The Cheeky Tui and The Fidgety Fantail(also owned by Caroline and Martin-which is also privately tucked away but within a stones throw) for family gatherings! It is perfect for such an event. GREAT experience over-all, absolutely no complaints! We are so happy, it is our new home-away-from-home!see more
Mabel's. Historic 1860's Waterfront Cottage
Lovely cottage in perfect loation

Stayed at Mabel's Cottage, as Granny Rosieur, the original owner, was my wife's great great grandmother. We were overwhelmed by just how lovely it is, beautifully restored and furnished, in a stunning waterside location. Cannot thank Richard Dunbar enough for his kind hospitality,not just the home made loaf and bottle of wine, although they were extremely welcome, especially after the long haul from the UK. Just wish we had booked to stay longer.see more
