About Paula Jones

Award winning Film Producer

Paula Jones purchased this house in 2016

Why Paula Jones chose Waihi Beach

I'd been coming to the beach for years to visit family and had always been curious about the Bunker - so when it came on the market I bought it with a view to retiring. I love Waihi Beach - but work keeps me in Auckland - and retirement still seems a while away.

What makes this house unique

Close to the ocean - you can hear the surf.

Big covered patio area for outdoor entertaining.

Fully fenced with large flat lawn area and room for the boat

Great Property with everything that we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Great Property with everything that we needed. A short walk to the beach and dairy. Kids loved it and it was great that we knew they were secure while playing in the garden. The house itself was cosy and had everything that we needed during our stay.

Not far from old gold mining district and beautiful river gorge -with cycling and walking tracks through gold mining tunnels. Plenty of cycling tracks and walkways around estuary and hills to alternative coves and beaches. Launch the boat or go sailing in the inner harbour. Easy drive to Coromandel beaches and Tauranga.
