This New Zealand beach house is a revival of the much loved New
Zealand bach, however it has all the modern day conveniences that
are needed to enhance your holiday of a lifetime. Built about 12 years ago but
extended and modernised since, Plane Sailing is located in the quieter
section of the village of Maraetai, it allows visitors to be part of the
coastal environment whilst enjoying the modern comforts that we
take for granted today.
If you have a love of the sea within you then Plane Sailing is the place to
be. For walkers, joggers and cyclists it's just yards from the front door
to the newly constructed coastal footpath that connects Maraetai with
Beachlands and beyond. Numerous other footpaths which criss cross
the area can be accessed from the coastal footpath, each providing
its own piece of stunning scenery.
For those that need to be closer still to the sea there is provision at
Plane Sailing for fishing, windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing,
weather permitting. For those less adventurous, safe swimming,
paddling and beachcombing are available in front of the bach where
a small beach is just yards away.
The name Maraetai is Maori for 'A meeting place by the sea'.
The village has a population of a few hundred people with enough
facilities to make it self contained but not so many that it becomes a
major tourist destination. It is located about 20 miles North
of North Auckland International Airport or 20 miles east of Central
Auckland.The Pohutukawa Coast is one of Auckland’s most
spectacular driving routes, named after the beautiful red-flowering
trees fringing its shoreline. Take in the magnificent views of Waiheke,
Ponui and Pakihi Islands in the Hauraki Gulf
Only a few miles away, facilities to stock up the larder and the beer
fridge at the neighbouring village of Beachlands, or take advantage
of a scenic ferry service into Auckland city from the delightful and
very trendy Pine Harbour.
Smoking allowed outside only. Pets allowed with prior approval. HAVE FUN.
