This modern home home is located just 90 mins from Auckland in the beachfront subdivision of Paradise Shores. Enjoy walks along the expansive beach, swimming in the crystal-clear water (with lifeguards on duty during summer) and tuatuas at low tide. Exceptional fishing, diving and boating, 10 mins to Marsden Cove Marina. Waipu's 18-hole golf course is just five mins drive and Waipu township has a number of restaurants & cafes, museum and shops, such as the famous Pizza Barn.

The house faces north and offers a very sunny aspect and relaxed atmosphere. Located at the end of the cul-de-sac, it's quiet and close to the forest and beach, providing a beautiful retreat from the city life. It sleeps 7 but could accommodate a few more and room outside for tents. There are two double bedrooms with double beds, a fold-out sofa bed in the lounge (double) and a single bed in the lounge. There's also an amazingly comfy couch and a 50 TV with SKY and large handcrafted dining room table that seats six to eight people easily – perfect for family or group dinners. The kitchen is well equipped, with everything from a slow cooker to wine glasses. Large parking area for boats and caravans.
