A hidden treasure situated down right of way in the private micro community of McKenzie Bay.

This is an open plan, 2 storey, comfortable house - perfect for a family. The house is modestly set out for a relaxed holiday break and includes a large sheltered barbeque area for those long summer evenings. There is the Living area and extra toilet upstairs, and two double bedrooms, a bunkroom and bathroom downstairs. There is an upstairs fireplace which makes it cosy in the colder months.

Note - this property has a steep narrow staircase so is probably not suitable for less mobile people.

Great views of harbour out to Bream Bay. A short stroll down the lawn to private beach, with safe swimming and water activities just below the section. There is sheltered anchorage in bay, boats can be launched in nearby Taurikura or Urquharts Bay. A deep water mooring can be used on request. From the front deck, enjoy the views of the peaceful, quiet bay and listen to the sounds of the tuis and wood pigeons in the surrounding large trees.

McKenzie Bay is situated 25km from Whangarei CBD, is close to most amenities; tennis court, store, cafe, takeaways, and affiliated club are all within a couple of kms.

At Parua Bay 10 min drive towards Whangarei, is a service station for dive and gas fills, and a small shopping center. The Pines Golf course a further 5km.

Renowned Ocean Beach is just a 5 minute drive away. Numerous DOC walkways and other East coast beaches are all close by.

Whangarei Harbour is the gateway to the East Coast and outer Islands. The area is a mariners paradise - diving, fishing, water sports and kayaking. Or simply sit on the beach and enjoy the quiet.

  • The property was immaculate

    The property was immaculate. Had everything and more than we needed/expected. The outdoor and indoor living was great. We were close enough to Whangarei to pop and get bits and pieces, but there was so many little shops and cafes around, it was easy. But spent most of the time in or on the water.

  • Wonderful stay with our family

    Wonderful stay with our family. Having the kayaks and dinghy to use in the boat shed by the water topped it off. We would recommend it to others and definitely stay again.
