The house is within a few short minutes of Whangaparaoa Mall, cinema, restaurants, Manly Cafes, golf course at Gulf Harbour and ferry to Auckland City.

The house is 10-20 minutes drive of Snow Planet, Action Raceway Go-Karting, Waiwera Thermal Spa Resort, Puhoi Village, Albany Shopping Centre and Orewa Beach.

More about Whangaparaoa Peninsula:

Whangaparaoa is Maori for Bay of Whales, and pods of orca and dolphin are still spotted in the waters off the peninsula. The peninsula stretches east for 11 kilometres into the waters of the Hauraki Gulf to the north of East Coast Bays. The island of Tiritiri Matangi lies three kilometres off its eastern tip.

The town of Whangaparaoa sits on the peninsula's southwestern shore, and is regarded as the start of the section of coastline known as the Hibiscus Coast. Communities along the peninsula include Red Beach, Stanmore Bay, and Manly. At the end of the peninsula is Shakespear Regional Park and Gulf Harbour.

For those that value spending time at the beach with the family or simply as a spot for relaxation, Whangaparaoa is perfect. All close by: Red Beach, Stanmore Bay, Big Manly, Tindalls Bay, Fishermans Cove, Army Bay, Te Haruhi Bay, Matakatia, Little Manly, Arkles Bay and Shakespear National Park.

The location is excellent being a short walk from a great swimming beach.

  • 3 of 5

The location is excellent being a short walk from a great swimming beach. The house was no-frills, had what was required but basic and not particularly comfortable furnishings. It smelt musty. The back garden area was unkept but the front deck was large and good for a gathering. An expensive rental for the quality offered.
