This is lovely 70m2 tiled open plan bach in a quiet part of Whale Bay nestled amongst the Manuka and Kanuka trees.

It has a Granite kitchen benchtop with dishwasher, ceramic cooktop, fridge, oven and microwave. Basic pantry ingredients available eg: salt, pepper, sugar, spices, and a BBQ available for your use. Steep section with 2 flat picnic spots with expansive views.

    The location of the property was perfect for us as my husband was able to walk to the near by surf break.

  • The property is a well equipped modern bach

    The property is a well equipped modern bach. We loved the open plan kitchen. We loved the very good kitchen pots pans and knives!! We loved the view and the balcony. We loved the clean lovely, comfortable beds and sheets. We loved that the rooms can be very darkened with the blinds (we have small kids). We loved the water pressure and beautiful bathroom. There is so much to love here. The only thing missing was a garden and the only downside is the very steep drive. Thanks Lisa!
