Looking for a character-filled holiday home that’s private with room to move? Then look no further.


This two level home with vaulted timber ceilings is very inviting and offers the ultimate in relaxation for holidays and weekend getaways.


Upstairs the kitchen/dining/family area opens out to covered decking with views across the lawn to the bush and hills beyond – a perfect pozzie for outdoor entertaining with the barbecue close at hand and the kitchen just a few steps away. Also on this level is the master bedroom, which also opens up to the deck and views. The main bathroom includes separate shower and bath – a claw foot bath to soak away the after effects of a day on the water.


Downstairs the lounge is the place to be to wrap up the evening with card and board games played confirming the reigning champion team of trivial pursuit, five crowns or completing the holiday jigsaw. For the children or guests it’s easy to retire with two bedrooms on this level – one a double and one a bunk room, with a guest toilet for convenience.


French doors open out from the lounge onto decking which wraps around to a large covered deck area that is enticing for days you want to be outside but avoid the sun or showers. This is another place for family gatherings and many a story has been told here of days fishing, golfing and kayaking. A semi-outdoor shower is conveniently located to easily rinse the sand and salt off the kids or wetsuits as well as offer a shower for downstairs guests.


It is an easy walk to MAZ (the activity zone) with skateboarding supreme, tennis, playground, BMX tracks, flying fox and more and while the kids are playing you can grab a coffee at one of the cafes. With golf, beach and estuary all under 2kms the location is hard to beat. And with Auckland only 80 minutes away it’s an easy drive for holidays or weekends.


This property is reminiscent of sunny days at the beach yet with the tranquil views and privacy it is also a great place to come to regenerate your energy over winter too.
