Overview

Photos and Description of this Howick holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

At your fingertips the full amenities of the city at your toes the soft white sand. You drive to the end of Peacock St, park your car in the residents area and walk through the pohutukawas, down the sealed path approximately 100 metres to the house. An eclectic group of people enjoy the pacific feeling on the beach where 10 houses nestle. There is no road noise, there is no road between you and the beach. Listen to the tuis sing, hear the sound of waves. Literally on the beach with unobstructed views of Browns Island, Rangitoto and Waiheke.

Here you can live two different lives, by day in the hustle and bustle of your professional life, then you return to your hidden paradise and kayak to Browns Island, swim, fish, sail, windsurf or just relax in the sun and watch the others play, the whales blow, the fish jump, the yachts racing, the ferries pass by . This unique location, Karaka Bay, with a history of it's own, is situated at the mouth of the Tamaki River and is just 10-15 minutes drive from Auckland city central along the waterfront/Tamaki Drive.

St Heliers village with library, banks, cafes etc, There is great public transport from the top of Peacock St for those who don't have cars.

Reference from our guests:

"A brilliant property on the beach at Karaka Bay. The main rooms all had a great aspect on to the beach - the living room especially was a great place to relax any time of the day or night. Open the doors to the main bedroom to enjoy the sunrise from across the Bay, the distant views to the Coromandel and the islands in between. Karaka Bay beach is quiet and was little used even when St Helliers and Mission Bay were full! But beware the steep footpath - it could be a problem for some!!"

Another guest says:

"I though I'd drop a short note and let you know we had a fantastic time in The Bay. We really loved the house, and the seclusion so near the city. It was such a change from yet another hotel room, and it made the trip a fantastic experience."
