About our home

Anyone keen to swap in March 4-12th 2016 for a place nearby Los Angeles airport? Our cottage located in Stanmore Bay, Whangaparaoa, New Zealand has been lovingly renovated to retain the charm and essence of yester-year whilst enjoying a modern, contemporary twist of today. It evokes that warm 'french county" feel, as do the surrounding grounds complete with quirky outbuildings, and sprawling lawns. Poplar Road is a private, river-fringed location where the natural habitat is protected landscape. Nature at its best. So close to Silverdale Shopping Centre and motorway on-ramp, beaches, restaurants, cafes, sporting facilities and the stunning Shakespear Regional Park.

The Whangaparaoa Peninsula is known for its long golden beaches, stunning regional park and world-class golf course. It’s just a 35-minute drive north of Auckland. The name Whangaparaoa is the Māori translation for Bay of Whales, as dolphins and orca whales can often be seen in the waters off the peninsula.

Why visit?

Whangaparaoa Peninsula is a great place to explore some of Auckland’s stunning scenery and get up close to native wildlife. Take one of the trails through Shakespear Park and do some birdwatching – you can even pitch a tent in the Te Haruhi Bay campground if you want to stay longer. Like many of our regional parks, areas of Shakespear remain part of a working farm, stunningly pastoral with sheep, lambs and cow roaming throughout.

Enjoy some of the great water activities along the peninsula or simply pack a picnic and relax on one of the sandy beaches. Gulf Harbour offers a superb golf course, first-rate marina.

We welcome you to our home which features 3 gorgeous upstairs bedrooms, an open plan kitchen/dining/family room and separate, more intimate living room - both opening through French doors on to the wide roofed return verandah and grounds.

A property that will capture your heart!
