Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 9)
We are approaching retirement age and are self-employed as small business mentors in the local community. Our children are grown up and live away from home. They have been substituted by 4 cats and several species of native wild birds !!! We live on a farm about 25 minutes North of Snells Beach and also run a small beehive/Honey operation. We do all the maintenance and site management for Snells beach ourselves, are keen on Travel, Outdoor sports, Nature conservation, Heritage buildings and Home renovation. We currently live in a 4 double bedroom Victorian Villa which has been restored in keeping with its original with all "mod cons"
Kawau_Bay_Vista purchased this House in 2003
Why Kawau_Bay_Vista chose Snells Beach
We used to stay at a friend's house down the road and regularly drive past the last empty section in the street. We enjoyed the area and promised ourselves that if ever that section came on the market we would try to buy it. One day there was a "For Sale" sign on it so we made good our promised.The geotech in the area is not very good so building the foundations is very expensive but our plan was a simple one.We did not want to live there permanently so we found a relocatable house which looked like most others others in the street and had it moved on. We took a 2.5 stepladder onto the section to figure our the best place to site the house for the "Million Dollar" view and had the house moved on. We did the renovation ourselves and had the large deck built on the seaward side to look like most of the other decks on the street. It has been set up specifically as a holiday destination with easy to clean surfaces and functional spaces to relax and have fun in the area.

Great weekend away
We had a lovely weekend in Snells Beach. It's hard to read yourself away from the deck with its beautiful view. The house is very well equipped and it's a very short walk to the beach and to shops where you can get all your essentials. Our only niggle was the mattress on the second double bed - it's very thin and wasn't at all comfortable for two adults. Otherwise, we'd thoroughly recommend it.
Thanks for the review. In response to your comment, we have installed a foam topper for the double bunk bed which should improve the comfort. All good. Kia ora Mai.
Awesome location so close to the beach and the shops so worked well for us as we have never been to snells beach before.
The house was nice and clean and the kids loved the back yard.
It was only an hours drive from home so was super easy travel and a very relaxing and friendly location
