This is our family home, which we are happy for you to enjoy while we are away. It has a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of space for group activities or for individuals to find a quiet spot to relax, both indoors and outdoors.
It is a flat 2-3 minute walk to the Torbay shops, which include a Four Square, local fruit shop, free-range butcher, wine shop, medical centre, pharmacy, video store, plus a range of takeaway and local dining options.
Browns Bay is 5 minutes by car, expanding options for supermarkets, general shopping, beach- front dining and licenced premises. These include Deep Creek Brewery and Bar (boutique brewer and good food) and Speakers Corner Alehouse, an English Style local pub and grill.
The Hauraki Gulf playground is easily accessible to boaties via local beach launch or boat ramps at Takapuna, Stillwater or Gulf Harbour. This provides all the attractions of water sports, fishing, and island picnics if you are looking for that.
