Pinehill is a small suburb in the East Coast Bays area of Auckland, New Zealand. Pinehill contains two shopping centres, one along East Coast Road and the other along Greville Road. The suburb has only recently grown because of the housing estates being built in the area for the rapidly growing Albany area. Pinehill is regularly serviced by buses which go to Takapuna and Auckland City. The Auckland Northern Motorway passes to the west of the suburb.
Pinehill School and Oteha Valley School are contributing primary schools (years 1-6). Pinehill School opened in 1997 and Oteha Valley School opened in 2004. City Impact Church School is a full primary (years 1-7) and junior high school (years 8-10) and a high school (year 11), operating as a private Christian school. All three schools are coeducational.
The residential area has a relaxed community feel. The suburb features mostly modern, large, family homes. There are two shopping centres, both of which have an array of day-to-day and entertainment options. Pinehill has a range of cafés, restaurants and takeaways.
