Orkney Island is a tidy one bedroom fully self-contained flat just five minutes walk from the beautiful and popular beach, cafe and shop at Tay Street in Mount Maunganui (with New World less than 10 minutes walk away). It has double-glazing which means it's nice and warm in the middle of winter, and cool in the summer - so it's the perfect destination all year round.
The flat is suitable for a couple or family with one or two young children, or a family with one older child. It's also perfect if you're commuting to Tauranga during the week and need a place to stay.
Please note that we do not accept booking requests for groups of more than 2 adults.
It's the perfect place to spend a few days relaxing near the beach without any hassles. The main Mount beach is an easy 25 minute (4km) walk along the beach from Tay Street. You can also walk to the main street at the Mount with its range of restaurants and boutique shops. Mount Maunganui Golf Club is only a few minutes drive away.
Blake Park, the local sports ground used for netball, rugby, cricket, hockey and the annual AIMS games competition is less than 10 minutes walk away - perfect if you are planning to attend a sporting event. In addition, the ASB Arena is only 10 minutes drive away.
The flat is off the road so is private, and there is off-road parking available for a regular-sized car (no room for parking a boat or trailer, sorry). Mount Primary School is just across the road and has two fabulous children's playgrounds.
The property has fast WiFi available at no additional charge (subject to reasonable and fair use).
There is a recent-model washing machine available in the property, with a separate dryer available to use on request. Other facilities mentioned, such as the kayak and BBQ are also available on request.
