About Delwyn Barnett
Mother and Grandmother living in Taranaki, New Zealand. Interests are family, travel and photography.
Delwyn Barnett purchased this Apartment in 1885
Why Delwyn Barnett chose Opua
Although I put the year purchased as 1885, this obviously is not when I purchased the property, but when my great grandparents moved the building to its current location at Opua. It was then run by my great-grandmother, then my grandmother after that as a boarding house. In 1967 my uncles divided the property into five separate apartments, three of which I now own. My hope is that my children too will keep this property, maintain and value it as I do.
What makes this Apartment unique
I love the history, especially the family history attached to this old homestead and the Opua area.

Opua is a good base for exploring the Bay of Islands and far north. The Twin Coast cycle way starts or finishes at Opua and Horeke on the west coast. Lots of water activities, boating, fishing, kayaking, deep sea fishing, etc. Most of these are based in Paihia which is 5 kilometres by road. There is a lovely coastal walkway from Opua to Paihia which takes about 1 1/2 hours to walk.
