100 metres across a reserve to the estuary, our bach looks out to the spectacular skyline of the Coromandel Ranges.
There is an outdoor entertaining area which is great for BBQs. Shopping area, tennis courts, skateboard bowl, basketball court, minigolf and golf courses are all within a few minutes walk. For younger children there is a playground within view and close enough to call children home for dinner. Fishing from the wharf is a popular activity.
For those who are keen on more active pursuits there are 3 bikes and 3 kayaks with life jackets. The ocean beach is a short drive or a 15 minute walk away. The challenge of climbing Mt Pauanui before breakfast motivates some!
If you just want to chill, the outlook is wonderfully relaxing. Sunsets are often brilliant. The birdlife along the estuary on those late afternoon walks is always fascinating. Just out of view, but actually very close, are the Waterways canals.
In Winter our house is warmed by a fabulously efficient wood burner. There are two separate living areas - one with the television/DVD player, one for those who want to talk. Sky is available if you bring your own Sky card.
The famous Hot Water Beach is a 45 minute drive away and the walk to Cathedral Cove less than an hour's drive.
(Note: The map shows a lake. It used to be many years ago but is actually a reserve between the house and the water.)
