Located at the cul-de-sac end of the first street back from the beach this 70's house is well laid out and easily accommodates two families if the kids are happy to bunk up!

It is only a 2 mins walk to the beach through the new walkway at the end of the street, no beach views from the house but the upside of that is a back yard that is a great sun trap and the macrocarpas ensure it is very sheltered even when its windy down at the beach.

At one end of the house is the family room. The single bed is in a sunroom type area with a partial wall, good for parents and a younger child. At this end there is a toilet and hand basin adjoining the laundry. The kitchen, dining and living areas occupy the middle of the house. At the other end is the master bedroom and the kids bunk room. The bathroom has a shower over a shub (handy for bathing smaller kids), toilet and basin.

Outside the back yard is a 60's/70's concreters dream! There is a large square of grass in the middle of an area built for scooting or practicing your biking skills! The front of the house has a lawn area complete with shady tree. The section is (almost) fully fenced. The only part not fenced is at the back of the section which has been blocked off with a DIY Fence.

The house is on tank water so we would appreciate it if you keep showers short during the summer months. There is a BBQ, sun umbrella for the outside table and some additional outside chairs available for your use.

There are a number of games, jigsaws and a few books to keep you occupied when you are not on the beach.

The Surf Lifesaving Club operates on the beach throughout the summer months so you can "swim between the flags". The 4 Square has most things you will need including yummy fresh baked bread, pies and real coffee! Levin is only a 10 min drive away for the supermarket.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only. Families preferred. Pets considered after consultation with owner and preferred to sleep outside
