We would love to welcome you in to our home & share with you why we love living here.
The beach is on our doorstep, which is great for walking, swimming, fishing & surfing.
There are kayaks & bikes that you are welcome to use, with an easy 20min ride to town for cafes or shopping. Our area also offers walking and mountain bike tracks, as well as fishing charters, and tours to White and Whale Islands.
3.5hr drive from Auckland, 1 hour from Tauranga and Rotorua.
Our house is on a private road shared with 7 other homes so there's very little traffic noise. If you arrive by car there is safe off-street parking at the front of the house. Our property is fenced and gated, and the house is single level and you have the option of choosing between two bedrooms, one with a double bed the other has two single beds.
As we said above the beach is on our doorstep, a two minute walk. After a walk or swim you are welcome to use the outdoor shower.
We welcome you to treat our home as yours, the kitchen is there for your use and we are happy for you to use the TV & living area. The outdoor deck area is covered so can be used all year, and is a great place to start your day with a cuppa and breakfast.
You are also welcome to use the washing machine.

John and I welcome the opportunity to share our knowledge of the local area, and we always welcome being able to hear from others about their homes & adventures. But if you would like some privacy, and chill out time, that is all good by us too. We both work so during the day you will have plenty of time to your own thing.

The biggest thing that will impact on your stay with us, is our much loved dog Van, he is friendly and does a lot of sleeping.
We also require you to tidy up after yourself, especially in the kitchen.
Married to Anne for 32 years, and we have 3 adult children who have all now flown the coop - finally ! I have served in the Air Force - 10 years, worked in IT for 10 years and have now completed 20 years in the New Zealand Police. Anne works in retail after having had a number of jobs juggling work and being home when our children were growing.
We both enjoy travelling, which we did alot of before the kids came along, and now its time again to fill those passport pages again. Outside of travel we do alot of cycling, swimming, surfing, and living at a beach means we're outside most of the time. Food, gardens and catching up with friends are our other passions.
