Beautiful rustic cottage a short walk from safe swimming, great fishing and surfing. Wharekaho Beach is about a kilometre long and has a small sheltered estuary at one end which is great for small children and the bay provides a safe over night anchorage for small craft, while the other end is great for rock fishing and sometimes surfing. The garden is reasonably flat and contains an organic vegetable patch where you can pick your own salads. It is a very warm location which gets sun all day.

The house has a semi Japanese flavour with a Japanese tatami room with shoji doors. However if you are looking for something posh, better look elsewhere because it is rustic, funky and comfortable and it has great character.

There are native shelter belts surrounding the section which protect it from the wind and it backs onto a farm so you will sometimes have cows over the fence.

Fantastic for barbeques and outdoor living

    Very quiet house sited on a back section. I loved the rural outlook in the morning and the stars are really bright at night .... best enjoyed over a wine on the deck. Very short walk to a lovely beach. 5.53am sunrise was worth the walk too.
