WINNER of Bronze Best Setting 2016 in the NZ wide bach PIWA awards this elevated absolute waterfront property enjoys spectacular sea views to the Poor Knight Islands / Whananaki coastline from nearly every room in the house. Set on 5 acres, fringed by pohutukawas and native bush along the shoreline this unique property enjoys two private beaches and its own mooring in a sheltered, all weather sandy bay.

Breakfast at the outside table with sea views to die for, recline on the deck and soak up the all day sun, play volleyball or cricket on the massive front lawn, wander along a loop track through native bush to a seat on the point - a special place to sit and contemplate above the ocean, check out on a side track what was once a small Maori pa, walk down our private track with steps to the beach to swim, fish off the point, snorkel or dive for crays, take our two kayaks for a paddle around the bay or along the coast or take your boat off the mooring and out for a day's fishing. The fish and cray in the photos were caught from the offshore reef just out from the beach. Winter fishing is best here.

Take one of the local walks: by the estuary to the old wharf and bar entrance, around the Whananaki sand spit, to the DOC headland reserve, stroll across the footbridge to Whananaki South beach or just walk down the road to beautiful Otamure Bay.

We are two and a half hrs from Auckland, 35 min from Whangarei, 5 minutes to a great surf beach, 2 minutes to a boat launching ramp in the Whananaki estuary and 3 minutes to the local general store (no fuel).

    Fabulous location and house! The views were spectacular and we never tired of looking at it even when the weather was not so great. Having your own relatively private beach which was sheltered from the predominant wind was an added bonus!
