Escape the pressures of daily life in the tranquillity of this private cliff top retreat with gorgeous sea views.

Three level house with plenty of space and privacy. 28 years old with inside repainted 5 years ago and outside painted in 2018. Light airy ambiance - high ceilings, lots of windows and light coloured walls and ceilings. Terracotta tiles in kitchen, dining, lounge, rumpus, bottom bedroom and bathrooms. Carpet elsewhere.

Middle floor with open plan dining, kitchen and lounge. Full laundry, bathroom, and 2 double bedrooms with queen size beds. A full deck runs around all these rooms and provides access to the large salt water pool. Comfortable, casual furnishings for a relaxed feel. Lounge has wood burner, large TV and DVD. Large kitchen with plenty of bench space; new fridge/freezer; 2 dishwashers; espresso coffee machine; oven and gas hob.

Upstairs is the master bedroom with queen size bed, ensuite bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and deck. Next to this is a smaller bedroom with a single bed and access to the deck.

The bottom floor has a combined rumpus / bedroom with 3 single beds. Bathroom with shower, toilet and basin. Foosball table.

Lush tropical terraced garden fringed with stunning Pohutukawa trees and spectacular sea views. Abundant bird life. Wake up to the soothing sound of the sea and the birdcalls fom Tuis, Wood pigeons and other native birds.

On the middle deck adjacent to the pool is a gas BBQ, 2 sun loungers and outdoor dining furniture for relaxed outdoor living. Not toddler safe - pool safety fenced but high decks with railings a small child could potentially fall through.

Please note that Leigh does not have town water supply - all water is tank rain water so guests are asked to kindly conserve water.

    The house was in a great location with lovely views and good access to the water. However, we felt that the property was a bit tired and in need of an update, particularly given the amount we were paying. There were also a few minor details that the owner could address quite easily, such as the lack of wine glasses (there were just a few plastic ones) and providing a hair dryer. They could also replace the washing machine which wasn't working properly.

  • Great house, fully equipped

    Great house, fully equipped. Great location, the only negative is the path to the water would be no good for older or injured people.
