Mission Bay is just a short 10 minute drive from Auckland CBD along the waters edge, and is well known for its gorgeous sandy beach and cafe attractions. Buses run every every 15 minutes from the city centre to Mission Bay.

It is approximately 45 minutes from the airport. Shuttle buses cost $47 for 1 person and $9.50 for a 2nd person. Taxis range from $70-80. Some accomodation suppliers also do airport pickups.

There are a number of accommodation options in the area, however these three have received great reviews from previous clients of mine.

The host is a lovely lady who will give you lifts to the course or Mission Bay cafes if you need it, and usually also offers $10 dinners if you want them. A second guest can stay for an extra $25/night. Contact or 021 71 88 99.
