This New Zealand beach house is a revival of the much loved New

Zealand bach, however it has all the modern day conveniences that

are needed to enhance your holiday of a lifetime. Built about 12 years ago but

extended and modernised since, Plane Sailing is located in the quieter

section of the village of Maraetai, it allows visitors to be part of the

coastal environment whilst enjoying the modern comforts that we

take for granted today.

If you have a love of the sea within you then Plane Sailing is the place to

be. For walkers, joggers and cyclists it's just yards from the front door

to the newly constructed coastal footpath that connects Maraetai with

Beachlands and beyond. Numerous other footpaths which criss cross

the area can be accessed from the coastal footpath, each providing

its own piece of stunning scenery.

For those that need to be closer still to the sea there is provision at

Plane Sailing for fishing, windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing,

weather permitting. For those less adventurous, safe swimming,

paddling and beachcombing are available in front of the bach where

a small beach is just yards away.

The name Maraetai is Maori for 'A meeting place by the sea'.

The village has a population of a few hundred people with enough

facilities to make it self contained but not so many that it becomes a

major tourist destination. It is located about 20 miles North

of North Auckland International Airport or 20 miles east of Central

Auckland.The Pohutukawa Coast is one of Auckland’s most

spectacular driving routes, named after the beautiful red-flowering

trees fringing its shoreline. Take in the magnificent views of Waiheke,

Ponui and Pakihi Islands in the Hauraki Gulf

Only a few miles away, facilities to stock up the larder and the beer

fridge at the neighbouring village of Beachlands, or take advantage

of a scenic ferry service into Auckland city from the delightful and

very trendy Pine Harbour.
