About this Holiday House

Prepare to be stunned by the privacy, views, grandeur and perfect location of this beautiful villa. Overlooking Huruhi Bay with a backdrop of stunning hills, this beautiful 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa sits on 6 acres with its own private beach. Located in the islands most exclusive suburb of Church Bay, only five minutes drive to the main hub of the island, Oneroa Village, this beautifully designed villa is perfect for an extended family or group. With a total floor plan of 230 square meters, this home offers the ultimate in space, style and location to ensure that guests have a truly one off experience in New Zealand’s award winning island wonderland. Bring your boat and tie up to one of the rent-able Mermaid Marine moorings available directly in front of the property and leave your dinghy on the private beach. Two of the islands most popular vineyards Mudbrick and Cable Bay, are located on the same road just minutes away. Filled with beautiful original fittings from old properties previously located all around New Zealand, this one off property celebrates everything that is great about yesteryear while embracing today by including items like bose sound systems, a wonderful 900mm oven with an induction cooktop and flat screen television. The kitchen is big enough to host four people in it at one time comfortably, and it opens out on to arguably, the most stunning outdoor dining area complete with a beautiful electric louver system and expansive views of Huruhi Bay. Fill the old wood burner stoves in the kitchen and the living room in winter and feel the warmth upstairs as it feeds through to the bedrooms. All four bedrooms are located on the top floor. Each room opens out on to the verandah and to more views. The generous bedrooms have wonderful high ceilings and feature stunning ceiling roses dripping with original art deco light fitiings. The stunning light filled master bedroom with its glorious views, will have you wondering if you need ever leave the room. Beautiful gardens, a wonderful large grass area for children to play on, and a track directly to the beach below, and many wonderful walking options from 15 minutes to all day, will make this the property that you will want to come back to year after year.
