About our home

Our home is a well loved 11 year old, close to several beaches with lovely views over the gulf and facing directly into the sun.
Our main living area is upstairs with open plan kitchen, dining (with large dining table for 6) and lounge, opening out onto a large terrace with a table seating 8 and BBQ. The master bedroom with ensuite & walk in wardrobe is also upstairs and separate to the other two bedrooms which are downstairs. Also downstairs is a TV lounge which also opens out to large tiled terraces and gardens. The upstairs & downstairs terraces are linked with an outside staircase.
Another bathroom with spa bath is downstairs along with a large laundry and garage.
The master bedroom has a superking bed, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third has a single bed and cot (which we have used for our grandchildren). There is also a foldout single bed in our storage cuboard.
Our home has often been admired for it's lovely views and it has a lovely feel to it. It is also in a very good locality.


More about us

  1. We are a couple in our early 60's. We have had our own businesses in the past and I currently have a small home decorating business which I run from home while my husband works for a commercial real estate company. We have 2 adult children and 4 grandchildren.
    Our son and his family live on a property adjoining ours, and our daughter & her family currently live just a few minutes walk away on the adjoining street, however, they are leaving in April,2011, to live in London for a few years.
    Consequently, we would like to exchange with someone close to the St.Albans area, North of London, for the Christmas period 2011.

    This is the home we live in so would need to be a simultaneous exchange.

Where is it?


Our home is situated in a very desirable area of Murrays Bay on the North Shore of Auckland.
We are just a 5minute stroll down the hill to the nearest beach, Murrays Bay, and 15min. walk around the beach walkway to the next bay and nearest village, Mairangi Bay. This is a lovely little seaside village with quite a lot of cafes and restaurants, post office, chemist, 4 ladieswear shops, supermarket, children's playground etc.
In the other direction it is a 10-15 minute walk to Rothesay bay beach which is nice for swimming, and a further 10min. walk over the cliff to Browns Bay beach and shops. This is another seaside village bigger than Mairangi Bay village. If you like to walk, there are plenty of cliff top tracks from bay to bay.
We are a ten minute drive to the nearest megacentre where there is a huge shopping mall, cinemas etc.
It is just 15-20 minutes drive over the harbour bridge to central Auckland where you will find many restaurants and great shopping.
There are ferry services to take you to nearby islands well worth a visit for their vineyards & beaches and within an hours drive there are many beautiful beaches and areas to visit. Auckland is also a good base to travel to the famous Bay of Islands, Rotorua, Coromandel peninsula and west coast.
