Just a short walk from our place and the perfect way to cool off - our little piece of paradise - Cockle Bay beach

Howick Historical Village

A look back at New Years Day - Cockle Bay, 1939.

Packed to the rafters! Looks a bit different to now and probably would’ve been the right time to buy land there! 😬

Cockle Bay is the place to stay!

After immigrating to New Zealand in 2016, we found ourselves living in Botany while we house-hunted. We explored many areas around East Auckland but fell in love with Cockle Bay. The sea, the view, the village, the history - we love it all! So when we saw a beautiful, character filled quirky house up for sale just minutes from the beach we knew we had found our happy place.

I always wanted to run a bed and breakfast. I love people. I love their stories. I love to talk about my new country. I love to make people happy! So for me being a host is just perfect!

We set up the area downstairs of our family home as self-contained guest suite and opened the door to our first guest in 2017. Roll on three years later, I am now a long standing Airbnb Superhost with many happy guests having experienced the bliss of a bed and breakfast at our place, The Bay Guest House, in Cockle Bay.

I believe that every guest is special and deserves to be treated like a VIP. When you stay with me you can expect a bit of luxury. A quality bed and lush linen, breakfast goodies, fresh milk, and a variety of teas and coffees plus little treats are just the start.
