We live in a small quite rural beach side community Foxton Beach, located at the mouth of the Manawatu river and the Tasman Sea. The house is modern and open plan, having just been renovated. The kitchen is well equiped, the house is solar heated, with a large open fire place. We have a large private garden, with decks and balcony. There is one bathroom, with a double shower and separate bath. There are 3 bedrooms, currently one is set up with twin beds, and the other 2 have double beds. There is a separate office area, which can be coverted easily into another sleeping space.There are 2 toilets and a separate laundry.
The neighbourhood is very quiet and tranquil and the Ocean can be heard from the house. There are few families resident in our immediate area. The neighbours are friendly and will assist with any little problems that may arise. There is a cafe, dairy, fish n chip shop, automotive garage, and pie shop at Foxton Beach.
