Around Auckland, around here, family friendly

$88 per night accommodation by the beach.

July 21, 2018

It was on a road-trip to Wellington when I realized I loved my husband,
Traveling has always been something we like to do together and as our family has grown the only thing holding us back has been money.

We are a family of 2 adults and 3 kids and hotels and motels everywhere want us to book 2 rooms and we just cannot afford it.
I was moaning about it again on the social media and someone reminded me that we can book accommodation through the regional council!  I did know this but I forgot, I am always hesitant of the unknown.

BUT WE DID IT GUYSSSSS.  We hired the Barr Cottage at Little Huia nestled in the Waitakere Ranges for 1 night.

It was a quaint little 3 bedroom very basic kiwi bach, we had to take all our own bedding and towels, but we have to do that at some holiday parks so it was no more hassle really.

This is a link to where we stayed ….You can check out the Auckland ones here ….
Some are only accessible by boat!  I wish we had a boat to visit.

I hope sharing this means that some other families can get away and make some memories with their children xx

Here is a barrage of photos, I wish I took more.  If you would like to see video I have some saved in my Highlights on Instagram… follow me here
