Where is it?
There is a ferry terminal an easy ten minute walk down at the end of our street. This takes you on a ten minute ferry ride directly to the heart of Auckland City and the Auckland Viaduct and Wynard Quarter with fantastic fine dining and family restaurants.
Connecting ferries from the Auckland Ferry Terminal provide a gateway to local islands including Waiheke (vineyards, beaches, restaurants and craft markets), Rangitoto and others. A car is not necessary but we would be happy to include a car in the exchange.
The picturesque Devonport Village and naval port is a pleasant 35 to 45 minute walk - or a 15 minute bike ride - on purpose built paths, mainly through local native bush reserves. We have bikes which we are happy for you to use.
There are spectacular and safe swimming beaches all the way around the Devonport Peninsular which are all only a 5 minute drive, a leisurely 45 minute walk or a 15-20 minute bike ride.
Local beaches include Narrow Neck Beach, Cheltenham Beach, Takapuna Beach and Devonport Beach, all with breathtaking views of Rangitoto Island. There are two volcanic 'mountain' walks, one at the end of Cheltenham Beach and one in Devonport Central which is an absolutely beautiful naval village.
Or if you fancy a bit of local shopping or want to eat out and don't want to go to into Auckland, Devonport Village has some lovely restaurants. There is also a bus stop an easy 5 minute walk from our house with buses to Takapuna, which is the larger local shopping area.
Waitemata Golf Course is a stone throw away and there is a local tennis club within walking distance.
Or you can just stay at home, enjoy the views, take a stroll down to the Ferry Terminal which has a lovely boardwalk - and then spend the afternoon having a BBQ and a swim.
