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.
Mairangi Bay located on Auckland’s North Shore is a fabulous place to live and holiday. Unwind with a stroll on the beach any time of year, wine and dine at fantastic restaurants only a few doors away. If you’re feeling adventurous you could go walking, running, biking, hiking, fishing, paddle boarding or swimming. There are also a couple of parks you can explore just a short stroll away. Mairangi Bay is a safe family friendly community that suits travellers from all walks of life. Come and experience this beautiful place we call home.

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.
