Waihi Beach is the heart of the Bay of Plenty, our nearest city, Tauranga, only 40 minutes away. Tauranga is one of New Zealand's largest growing cities, with a house boom in the last 2 years. Waihi Beach is a small settlement of around 2500 permanent residents which grows to 25,000 + in the summer months from early December to end of January. It has 10 kms of sandy white beach and swimming ocean, with cycle ways galore to explore. Waihi, the main town is a 10 min drive where they have an open pit gold mine and underground gold mine that is working and takes over 1,000,000 of gold per week. Unless you knew about it you would never know it was there. Being directly in town it has one of the most stringent environmental consents that it has to abide by.
Waihi Beach is a beautiful area. My house is a 3 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the village which has a number of fantastic shops. There are over 20 eateries within the area, all with great food. My home is a modern corner house with wide decks, full back lawn and easily accessible concrete drive. Ideal for those that want to have a home away from home. It has sun all day long with a great entertaining back deck. The section is fully fenced also if you have small children. Very user friendly with plenty of toys to play with.
If you want to relax, kick back and strenuously do nothing, this is the spot for you.
Full sun, yet private just lay back, soak up the sun, saunter to the beach, shop at the village, or partake in the Sunday music jam session at the local pub. There’s a 'hectic' time to be had on the deck with a glass of your favourite tipple while reading away the afternoon. If that’s too tame then barbecue the fish you’ve caught. Or just snooze in the sun after your morning/afternoon swim. The sea’s just metres away.
It’s a much loved family home, so the cats are included, just a nightly feed. And they stay outside.
If you’re into the sea, and who wouldn’t be, then it’s an ideal base. Just book your dates, there are winter specials, and with a toasty fire it’s a lovely romantic way to spend a few days with your lover.
