About this Holiday House

See end of description for Covid cancellation advice. A literal stone's throw from the sea. Wake up and check the surf, walk down the driveway and onto the beach for a swim. Low tide exposes deep sandy bottom rock pools in front of the house which you can lounge in with a cold beverage. Watch the sun rise and set from the living area and spacious balcony, eat outdoors in the sea air, relax in the shady hammock chairs and fall asleep to the sound of the surf. The balcony wraps around three sides of the fully equipped house, with gorgeous 180 degree ocean views and plenty of space to relax, dine, and sunbathe. Catch up on your sleep in the master bedroom on the king size posture-pedic mattress. The master opens on to the balcony, and looks straight out to sea, enjoy the spectacular view and fresh sea air from the bed or comfortable arm chair. Sleep with the ranch slider open and let the surf lull you to sleep. We have ultra fast fibre, so stream to your heart's content. Have a Netflix binge if the weather turns on you! For your comfort and enjoyment: - Air conditioning/Heat pump - 100% cotton bath towels - 100% cotton linen - King size bed with new posturepedic mattress in the master - Queen size bed with new mattress in the second bedroom - Mosquito nets for high summer - Body wash, shampoo, handsoap, and all cleaning products are non-toxic - Beach towels - Huge 49 inch flat screen smart TV with Netflix and Chromecast - Ultra fast fibre WiFi - Selection of books and board games In the fully equipped kitchen: - Brand new full size refrigerator and freezer - Nespresso machine - Selection of teas - Organic French press coffee - Breakfast cereal and milk - Oils, condiments and everything you could need for home cooked meals THE STUDIO The studio is the ground floor and is completely separate with no internal access. The garage also occupies the ground floor, and is separated from the studio by an internal wall (also no internal access). The space is simple and open-plan, with retro block walling, making it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It's small, about 50 sqm, and best suited to couples. The bi-fold door can open up half the front wall to let in the sea air, and the deck catches the sun at the front with shelter at the rear of the deck provided by the balcony above. For your comfort and enjoyment: - Air conditioning/Heat pump - 100% cotton linen - 100% cotton towels - King size bed with new Sleepyhead mattress - Futon sofa bed - Beach towels - Non-toxic body wash, handsoap and cleaning products - Selection of books and board games - Ultra fast fibre WiFi - 43 inch flat screen TV with Netflix, TVNZ On Demand, Lightbox, and Chromecast so you can stream anything else from your devices. In the kitchen area: - Nespresso machine - Milk frother - Electric double element, bench top oven, toaster - Full size refrigerator and freezer - Selection of teas - French press coffee - Breakfast cereal and milk - Oils, basic condiments, and all basic cooking utensils There is a fold down futon sofa bed. The size is slightly smaller than a double bed, with the folding seam running down the middle of the futon from head to toe, creating a slight dip. Using the sofa bed is not ideal unless you know each other well, as there will be little privacy, with only a roll down bamboo blind to visually separate the two sleeping spaces. Don't forget to let me know if you are wishing to use the sofa bed so I can ensure it is prepared it for you! The plumbing in the studio is currently on a macerator system, so when the taps are run or the toilet is flushed you will hear the macerator grinding and the pump running, please note it is noisier than a regular system. A couple of extra things: Our driveway is very steep, so if you don't feel confident driving up and backing down a steep driveway, or doing a hill start, our place may not be for you (unless you don't mind parking down on the road and walking up the hill). If you are bringing a camper, or your car has a body kit or is exceptionally low you will probably not make it up the driveway . We are on solely on tank water out here and Northland is nearly always experiencing water shortages, so water use needs to be frugal. Long showers are not possible. Smoking is permitted but outside only. Strictly no pets, no exceptions sorry. Please be aware that upon booking we will ask you to provide identification for all guests, as well as registration of the vehicles which will be on the property. The Beach House was once our much loved home, and we know you'll make happy memories there too. Follow us on Facebook if you would like :-) Covid advice: Please be assured that if you are travelling from within New Zealand, and are not permitted to travel due to a lockdown, we are more than happy to refund your booking in full. Please do note, this is if you are unable, not if you are disinclined. For everything else, including covid infection, please ensure you have adequate travel insurance. As always, if you need to cancel, we re-list the house, and if it books we will refund you as much of your cancellation amount as possible.
