About our location
Kodesh is situated on a quiet 3-acre property at the end of a cul-de-sac in a suburb of Auckland, Avondale. Surrounded by trees, bordered by Oakley Creek and overlooking Harbutt Reserve, the peaceful seclusion is an unexpected oasis, only 10 minutes drive from downtown Auckland. Easy access to the motorway and proximity to public service amenities makes it easy to head into the city centre or to venture west to visit the Waitakere Ranges or one of the many rugged and beautiful West Coast beaches. Or, one can simply relax and take advantage of the hospitality and homeliness of Kodesh itself.
