This is a delightful 2 bedroom apartment with 1 bathroom, open plan kitchen/dining/living. Tiled floors for easy care stays at the beach. Completely refurbished and tastefully decorated with all linen and towels supplied. Fully equipped kitchen with stainless appliances. Covered patio for all weather enjoyment. A perfect place for you to escape to or experience a laid back holiday with your family and friends where shoes are optional and relaxation inevitable. Build sand castles, fly kites, swim, walk, explore the rock pools and just enjoy the simplicity of life at the beach. No sea view from the apartment but walk through "the breezeway" and, at high tide, the water laps at the edge of the lawn.

Arkles is a very popular, child friendly safe beach yet here you are tucked away from the crowds at the end of the bay in this little piece of "paradise". Just up the hill (a 2 minute drive or a 10 minute walk) is the Whangaparaoa Mall with supermarket, chemists, Banks, restaurants, cinemas and more. A pleasant walk around the lake to a children's playground and on to the sleepy Weiti Marina. Quaint Manly Village just a few minutes away by car and a little further on to Gulf Harbour Marina and Shakespear Park with its sheltered bays and fine walks across open farmland and bush. Pack a picnic and catch the ferry to Tiritiri Matangi from Gulf Harbour. "Tiri" is a world renowned open sanctuary.

Other day trips could include a trip to Waiwera Hot Pools and on to the historic Bohemian village of Puhoi and a visit to the Puhoi Cheese Factory. Further north to Warkworth, Matakana, Goat Island Marine Reserve and numerous vineyards.

    The property is modern and has everything that you need for a short term stay. The location is great and the beach is basically at your door step. The beach itself is brilliant and Whangaparoa is far enough away from Auckland central to forget about all the traffic and congestion!
