About this Holiday House

Lovely sunshine cottage with nice fittings and furniture. Stunning panoramic views over farmland to Mount Puheke and Karikari Beach, and the most wonderful sunsets seem to be on display most nights. 2 bedrooms, one with queen size bed and those gorgeous views, the other has 2 sets of large sturdy wooden bunks. Each bedroom also has a double wardrobe. Open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area with pitched ceilings throughout the entire house which provide a feeling of even more space. Fully equipped kitchen including full stove, microwave, double pantry and fridge/freezer. TV with Freeview channels, Stereo, DVD, Washing Machine and even a sofa bed hiding in one of the two couches. Separate bathroom and toilet. Lounge and master bedroom have ranchsliders (with opening windows) onto deck. Some windows also have fly screens. Large 809m2 section with parking area for cars and boat. Large deck with outdoor furniture and BBQ for that outdoor living, taking in the wonderful views. Deck area fully fenced for young children. There’s even an outside bench/sink to prepare the fish you catch. Smoking outside please. No pets. Lots of things to see and do in the area – wonderful beaches like Puheke (which has the whitest sand I’ve seen in years) and Rangiputa within 10-15 minutes drive, closer still (5 kms) is Matai Bay and Karikari Beach, and just down the road (1-2 minutes drive at most, but also walkable) is Tokerau Beach and Perihepi Bay. Carrington Golf Club and Resort is just down the road (in fact you can see the golf course from the deck) and the Karikari Vineyards are definitely worth a visit. Shops, café and garage also just down the road.

Lovely outlook from property and nice space for relaxing in the evening. Functional property with all basic items required for your stay. Chris was very easy to book with and collecting keys very straight forward.
