Mairangi Bay 



Welcome to Whitby Studio where we have a fully self-contained studio
apartment where you can spend some quality time. This apartment is tastefully
decorated to give you that relaxed holiday feel and is well-positioned to enjoy the
sunshine with great indoor-outdoor flow to a large furnished deck, which is great
for Alfresco dining. The studio looks out over a large sub-tropical garden which
meanders down to a tidal stream at the bottom of our property and leads out to
Mairangi Bay Beach.

The Studio is equipped with a queen size bed and a sofa bed that folds out to a
double bed if needed. If you require a porta cot for your child, this is available on
request. Good quality linen is also provided for your stay as well as beach
towels for when you wish to relax in the sunshine on the deck or down at the
beach. There is also a dining room table with four chairs plus a desk for your
convenience. Studio facilities include all the usual home appliances to make
your accommodation totally self-contained and comfortable for your stay. If there
is anything else you need, please just ask us as we are here to help you enjoy
your stay.

Kathy & Hec

We have lived on Auckland’s North Shore all our lives and especially love living here in Mairangi Bay which has become our home for the past 20 years.  We both enjoy meeting people from here in New Zealand and from all over the world, and like to think we can promote our beautiful country.  We have both travelled extensively over the years and know what it is like to find accommodation which suits and does not cost a small fortune. We also like to offer our guests total privacy, but we are here if they need us for advice.

Our studio accommodation has been successfully operating for 15 years now (since 2007) and we feel that Mairangi Bay is such a lovely place to live that we want to be able to share it with our guests from around the world. 

We look forward to meeting you all soon.

Sight Seeing

Get acquainted with our charming little bay as well as neighbouring Campbells Bay and Murrays Bay.  Or take a drive into the big city of Auckland.

Less than a 200 metre walk to Mairangi Bay Beach  which is a safe swimming beach (great for families).  Occasionally there is big surf so located right on the beach is the Mairangi Bay Surf Lifesaving Club.

We are located only two doors up from Mairangi Bay Village Shopping Centre where there are plentiful shops to stock up on supplies for your stay and an abundance of cafes and restaurants available if you just feel like relaxing and enjoying a meal.

Beautiful coastal walks from Mairangi Bay to Murrays Bay (Sailing Club)  and Campbells Bay in the opposite direction.  Both these walks are approximately a 10 minute stroll each way.  We are very lucky in the East Coast Bays as there are many beautiful beaches along this coastline that you can visit by foot or public transport easily.

For the parents out there, we also have Mairangi Bay Children’s Playground, located on Sidmouth Street.  The playground is fully fenced so safe for the little ones to enjoy.

Outdoor & Adventure

Fancy some fun in the sun or maybe you’re up for an adventure.  Here are some activities sure to keep you entertained.

Pupuke Golf Club  is very popular and has fantastic views of the picturesque Hauraki Gulf.
