Our beachfront house is a 1960's open-plan design with oiled timber floors.It is lovely when it is warm and cosy when its raining.
There are views straight out to the beach and up to Farewell Spit.
The beach is soft and sandy, with a shallow gradient so very safe swimming and good for kayaking. Native trees around the house invite tuis, wood pigeons and shining cuckoos... The living room opens onto a deck and the garden has sheltered spots so there are nice places for reading or relaxing.
A tennis court and cafe are 2 minutes walk away. Collingwood is 15 minutes drive for groceries, a local museum, or fresh fish 'n chips at the Pub.
Farewell Spit is 15 minutes drive, and Wharariki beach a further 5 minutes, through to the west coast. The Whanganui inlet is 15 minutes drive and you can continue down the west coast to Maungarakau Swamp Cafe, Patarau River, Anatori river and beyond. The Aorere Valley which ends at the start of the Heaphy Track has the Kaituna Walkway and Naked Possum Cafe, Devils Boots, goldfields, and the Bainham Shop.
