Mahurangi Peninsula is the ideal place for a holiday. Secluded and peaceful, this much loved family bach is on a 1 acre property right on the water's edge.
The three bedroom open plan, sun-soaked house is classic kiwi bach style and overlooks the harbour. There are stunning views from the house and the large veranda.
There's plenty of lawn for kids to run around and the trees surrounding the property and the quiet bay mean that you will feel completely removed from it all.
A beautifully restored two bedroom 1870s kauri cottage next to the house is also available for additional bedroom space (not rented separately - no kitchen or bathroom facilities in cottage).
There's good swimming from half tide and above, and lots of great walks around the coastline or the quiet road. There is a private boat ramp and you are welcome to borrow a dinghy. You are close to several regional parks and lots of other great beaches. Close to the Kawau ferry. Algies Bay, Snells and Martins Bay are 5mins drive away, and Warkworth or Matakana 15mins. Sandspit, Goat Island, Scandretts, Tawhanui and Leigh are also easily accessible.
The property is close to Scotts Landing for boat launching facilities. If you're looking for a base to do boat trips from you can't beat this. In front of the house is very sheltered for anchoring, and there's easy access to loads of magical places that are only accessible by boat including Dairy Bay, Saddle Island, Sullivans Bay, Motuora Island, Motuketekete Island, Moturekareka Island, Kawau Island and many more. And the trip up the river to Warkworth by boat is fantastic.
There is also VDSL Internet with WiFi over most of the property, so it's a great place to hide away for a work project.
Just 1 hour's drive north of Auckland harbour bridge. Thanks for your interest.
