Freshly renovated, Kereru Cottage is a delightfully quirky, cosy place to stay in the sunny Whangaparaoa peninsula, just 30 minutes from Auckland city.
Situated high on a ridge looking northward out across Stanmore Bay, you will enjoy the peaceful, semi-rural setting surrounded by trees, with a view of the sea. Kereru Cottage is a standalone building with its own driveway and garden, offering your own private space.
Suitable for families with young children, couples and small groups.
Come up the outside stairs and you enter Kereru Cottage through the sunny conservatory, which provides a warm and sheltered space for summer dining.
Inside, find the cosy lounge, master bedroom with double bed, second bedroom with another double bed, and semi-ensuite bathroom (accessible from either bedroom). The sofa in the lounge opens to provide a third bed if required.
A heatpump/air conditioner keeps the cottage toasty warm in winter and cool in summer.
The kitchen is equipped with an oven, microwave, tea & coffee facilities, and a dishwasher. Some breakfast foods, milk and basic cooking supplies are included.
Guests have full use of the cottage (except garage). There is a grass area for kids to play, space to park several cars, maybe a small boat...
A portacot and highchair are available on request.
Wi-fi internet is provided via a high speed fibre broadband connection.
Linen (bedding and towels) is included. For longer stays we can provide a laundry service (once per week).
Standard check-in time is after 3:00PM but we may be able to accommodate early check-in depending on whether there are other guests departing on the same date; please contact us to confirm.

Your hosts Simon & Sophy live in the house next door. We'll happily help you with any questions during your stay, or respect your privacy if you prefer to keep to yourselves.
Native birds including tui and fantails frequent the bush around the property. If you're lucky, you might spot the namesake kererū (native woodpigeon)!
These go without saying for most guests, but to be clear...
1. There is strictly NO SMOKING permitted anywhere on the property.
2. No pets, sorry Rover!
3. Although we clean between every stay, we do expect you to be considerate and leave the cottage in a tidy state when you go.
4. The number of guests staying should match the number you have booked, otherwise additional charges may be payable.
5. Any damage that occurs during your stay should be notified to us immediately so we can work it out with you.
6. Please keep noise down at night. No parties are to be held on the property.
We are a young family, Simon, Sophy and our little boy Sam.
