Once the home of the Opunake Harbourmaster during the 1930s this house sits on the headlands overlooking the South Taranaki coastline with Opunake Beach and Middleton Bay Beach less than 2 minutes walk in either direction. World class surf breaks can be seen to the south and a safe boat ramp is situated in Middleton Bay to the north. The town which has a supermarket, two pubs, surf shop and and more than one award winning cafe (amongst other things) is a 10 minute stroll along Pohutukawa covered cliffs. The house has recently been upgraded with two new bathrooms and dining room to make the most of the sea views and evening sunsets.
