About our home

Spend the summer or winter enjoying spectacular everchanging views. This is our holiday beach side retreat, just over one and a half hours drive from the main city of Auckland and 25 min to the city of Whangarei. It sits amongst nice homes along the waterfront, and behind is a Palm Springs type golf and lake subdivision. Lovely walks or bike rides through here, and along the waterfront to the inland marina with a monthly market and all day cafe and bar. Onwards a little from there is the ocean beach.

The apartment is on the upper level for wonderful views, and the sandy beach access is via an easy staircase in front of house, or a gradual slope 2 houses along. The completely separate lower level apartment is tenanted. We can possibly exchange a car, but if flying in from overseas, a rental car will likely be easier fro the airport.
There is secure off street parking. A sheltered sunny courtyard is inviting for a BBQ...or the rear private bushed yard has shade under the big orange tree in tree lined yard.

Across the road is the white sandy beach, very safe swimming which is literally warm in the summer when the tide comes back in over the hot sand.

We are still working, in our fifties and open to travel in any direction.
We are a quiet settled couple who love the outdoors especially somewhere warm, and would be as respectful of your property as we would expect of our own. We have done several overseas exchanges over a few years.

We have just completed major re-build works on the Apartment so it is fresh and new and ready for exchanges which do not need to be simultaneous. You will enjoy the views all year round, but summer from Nov to April is a great time to visit.

We have a wonderful spot ourselves but happy to share that with others to also enjoy their special locations. We have been working in the retirement sector so understand appreciation of our time and current good health.

Where is it?


In a tasteful, peaceful area, this wonderful waterfront location allows for hours of sitting and just taking in the 180 deg sunny north facing outlook over the clean blue water to the mountains and bays beyond. Ample water activity means there is always something to watch of interest. You may well see dolphins or Orca swim past.
The boat launching is just steps away. Fishing abounds from the beach, in the harbour and beyond, and sightseeing with a picnic around the harbour makes for many an interesting day out. The white sandy beach is in front of the house with easy staircase access. The swimming is safe, with soft sand underfoot. A 5 min drive or bike ride away will take you to a wonderful surf beach.
There is access to the local private golf course just behind the property, for walking around the lakes.
The beautiful white sandy surf beach is 5 min drive away, with many choices of wonderful sandy beach locations all within a half hour drive.
