Descending through the trees on your Monorail Cable Car, you will think that you are in Paradise, as the expanse of the Hauraki Gulf opens up before you and the native birds call out a welcome to your tranquil new home in Karaka Bay. You arrive at your "Beach House" Apartment, the perfect "romantic getaway" for a couple, or if traveling with friends we can accommodate up to 4 persons.
This warm and sunny "Beach House" has been recently renovated throughout with a new kitchen/laundry. You can also BBQ on the deck framed by the Islands of the Gulf, paddle one of the 2 kayaks at your disposal on the beach, or enjoy relaxing with a book in this stunning environment and fall asleep with the sound of the waves lapping on the shore!
Private entrance, beach access with safe swimming, outdoor shower. The beach is one of Auckland's "Hidden Gems"
The ground floor apartment is totally self contained with access from the road via a new 4 person Private Cable Car, and access to the beach via a private walkway.
I would like to meet and interact with our guests and introduce them to the amenities and delightful surroundings of our neighbourhood. I will usually be present during their stay.
Our neighbourhood is endowed with beautiful sea views and walkways. We are adjacent to a series of walkways ranging from open farmland to nature/bird reserves. We can advise on specific walks giving time allowances and what you will see. Our local village, St Heliers Bay has a good choice of cafes/restaurants, and a good range of shops - grocery store, fruit and vegetable store, bakeries, fish shop, several fashion shops etc.
A walk or drive down to the Village to one of the cafes for morning coffee is a must!
There is a bus stop right next to our driveway, with buses leaving twice hourly taking about 30 minutes to get to Downtown traveling along the coastal route passing 4 beaches - a very beautiful journey! Contact the Host for details regarding arriving from the airport.
