Overview

Photos and Description of this Whangaparaoa holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

The perfect place to sit back and relax, taking in the panoramic views. A newly built bach with summer fun in mind, Large sliders open out onto a full length covered verandah and sundeck to take advantage of shade and sun. The house faces north so the sun can be enjoyed all year round.

The energetic can take a short walk along the clifftop to a couple of great swimming spots or try snorkelling or cast a line.Watch the graceful gannets gliding effortlessly on the breeze suddenly diving from a great height on to hapless prey beneath the waves with a huge splash. Sometimes large schools of fish churn the water into foam with flocks of seabirds diving to add to the spectacle with occasional visits from dolphins and even Orca for the lucky observer.

Handy to Gulf Harbour with boat mooring and haul-out facilities as well as shops, restaurants and bars, ferry services and boat charters.

Loved this place, my husband and I and my seven month old stayed over labour weekend and it was the perfect getaway. Gorgeous views, amazing location and even though it's relatively close to Auckland it felt like we were so far away from the city! Loved it and would definitely come back. I've already told a few people they should stay here! Thanks Neil :)

The place was stunning! A little jem tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our initial thought upon entry was 'look at that amazing view'. You're greeted to a really nice view of the water over looking native bush and a very spacious timber deck. And the house itself you can tell has been taken care of with love because of how clean and tidy the place was kept. Everything you want for a relaxing getaway.
