A lovely home located in picturesque Matakatia Bay. With the beach at the end of the driveway and beautiful sea views this is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing getaway.

Located approx 5 minutes from the Manly Sailing Club, venue of many national and international events.

This modern home has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 living areas. The main living area is open plan and enjoys sea views and fantastic outdoor flow onto the large wrap around deck complete with outdoor furniture and a gas bbq. The designer kitchen features all of the modern appliances you need for a relaxing holiday. The second living area doubles as a fourth bedroom which opens onto a sun-drenched back garden with a spa pool and Springfree netted trampoline for the kids to enjoy while you relax.

Bedroom 1 has sea views with a double bed plus an ensuite bathroom. Downstairs Bedroom 2 has a king single with the option of a second single bed. Bedroom 3 is fitted with a single bed, and bedroom 4 has a comfy double sofa bed.

The house also comes with a flat-screen TV, Netflix, DVD player, Wifi access and plenty of board games to keep you entertained. Guests are welcome to take the kayaks out for a paddle to discover the local paradise and tranquil bays. Alternatively, you can choose to do nothing and enjoy a glass of wine on the deck listening to the sound of the waves, watching the yachts sail by and the twinkling lights of the city and sky tower by night.

Matakatia Bay has a boat ramp, ski lane and some of the safest swimming in Auckland. The Bay is located on Whangaparaoa Peninsula, about 40 minutes north of Auckland City. Whangaparaoa is Maori for "Bay of Whales", and pods of orca and dolphins are often spotted in the Bay. The area boasts great fishing and eight golf courses, including the internationally acclaimed Gulf Harbour Golf Course. With 10 idyllic beaches, and a fantastic national park all within a close drive, there is always something to explore.

  • The bach far exceeded our expectations

    The bach far exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful, open plan modern home. It is tastefully decorated and has million dollar views. We were two couples and had more than enough space. The location is also fantastic. We enojed a day trip to Matakana and walks in Shakespear Park. If you plan to come to Whangaparoa pick this bach as you won't be disappointed!

  • We loved the quiet neighborhood and close proximity to the beach

    We loved the quiet neighborhood and close proximity to the beach. It was a very handy spot for us to explore the whole area from, including taking the ferry over to Tiritiri Matangi Island from Gulf Harbour only 5 minutes drive away. The bach itself was very well appointed and comfortable with stunning views day and night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
