  • Our house is just above Leigh Harbour (aboveareserve)on7acresofmainlybush & organic gardens.

Our self contained holiday house is situated just above Leigh Harbour (above a reserve) on 7 acres of mainly bush & organic gardens. We have spectacular views over the Leigh Harbour, across the wharf, & out to Barrier & Tawharanui. It is very peaceful & private but we are not isolated. You can walk down our track to the harbour & wharf, around to the shops & back home, perhaps popping into the Leigh Sawmill Cafe on your way. We are just 5 mins from Goat Island Marine Reserve & Matheson Bay, 10 mins from beautiful Pakiri beach & a short drive from the many great cafes & vineyards in this area.
There are 3 double bedrooms each with an ensuite. The master bedroom has views as described above, & a wet floor bathroom. You can lie in bed & watch the boats or just enjoy the antics of our resident bird life, lots of kingfishers, kereru (NZ native pigeons), kaka (our native parrots), quail, tuis & sometimes a family of pheasants. The house is set up for use by anyone with a physical disability or in a wheelchair, please enquire for further details. The kitchen/lounge area is open plan with a fully equipped kitchen, including a microwave & dishwasher, and yes we provide a coffee plunger. There is a fireplace for those cold wet (romantic) weekends (with lots of firewood), a TV, video, CD & DVD player, some videos DVD's & CDs, books, magazines & games. There are a couple of body boards, snorkels, masks & flippers, tennis racquets & basic fishing gear avail ($100 bond refundable on departure). Outside we have a BBQ & eating area at the rear of the house, as well as another table & benches out on the front lawn under our large old Totara tree. You can sit & sip your coffee or wine while watching the comings & goings in the harbour. We can provide all linen, by prior arrangement, including towels, but please bring your own beach towels.

 This property is one of our favourites and it was great to return. Such a lovely setting overlooking Leigh Harbour and beyond and both quiet and peaceful. The house is spacious and has everything you need. Very child friendly with lots of space to run around. The fire is awesome and heats the place in no time on those chilly nights. We will return again soon I'm sure! Thank you. 

 Great Views of Leigh, and a short walk to the Saw Mill Cafe is a nice bonus :) 

 Lovely location and wonderfully private. 

 A beautiful bach with everything we needed. Wonderful having ensuites in each of the 3 bedrooms. The fire was gorgeous, making the room cosy. A stunning location with beautiful views and some lovely walks. 

 Despite stormy weather and a day without power because of this, we enjoyed our stay at Nearlleigh. Beautiful bush surroundings and views, a nice spacious house and lovely log burner (we certainly needed it!).. The track down to the bay through the bush was a bit tricky to navigate and needs some work (or maybe should be advised as a track primarily for summertime use). I definitely recommend a stay at Nearleigh.
