Our home

This bright and sunny beach house is only 3 minutes easy walk from Onetangi beach, one of the best beaches in New Zealand. Renovated in early 2014, it has been stylishly designed for relaxed indoor-outdoor living.

The open-plan living, kitchen, dining is perfect for a relaxed holiday, with Kauri floorboards throughout the house. The kitchen has stone bench tops, and is well-equipped with new gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher and microwave. Dining can be done indoors or out, and a large chef's barbecue (with rotisserie and wok options) is perfect for entertaining. The lounge area features a new modular sofa, and large (60") screen TV with cable TV.

The bathroom has a separate walk-in shower, and a free-standing stone bath. Outside there is also a shower (with hot and cold water), for washing the sand off after you get back from your walk to the beach. A washer/dryer is also provided.

The living area has large bi-fold doors leading onto a deck, with partial sea and vineyard views.

The sunny master bedroom has a queen bed, and a flat screen TV with cable. Bedroom 2 has a King Single bed, and Bedroom 3 has a bunk (2 king singles) and a cot/toddler bed.

The garden is perfect for a family, with a rope swing, trampoline and skate-board ramp. Kayaks and bikes are also available upon request.

Who we are

  1. My husband and I are in our 40's, and are professionals working in advertising and marketing. Our eldest son is 11, our daughter is 9, and our baby girl is now 2 years old. We love hanging out at the beach and spend time there almost every day.

    When not at the beach, we love to travel, and particularly to go skiing. Even our baby daughter is now skiing at the age of 2.

    We're all ready to try somewhere new and exciting.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Waiheke Island is only 35 minutes by ferry from downtown Auckland. It has a relaxed atmosphere with beautiful beaches, cafes, restaurants, and 47 vineyards (many with wine-tasting and great restaurants). A lovely place to relax and unwind, or enjoy some of the many outdoor sports and activities on offer.

Onetangi Beach is arguably the best beach on Waiheke Island. Its north-facing, so gets all day sun, and has beautiful white sand and clean clear water. Great for swimming, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, or just playing or relaxing on the beach. As well as the friendly locals, there are often dolphins in the bay, and last summer we had a pod of Orcas. There are many bush walks and bike tracks in the area, and several nice cafes and restaurants on the beach to keep you refreshed.

Its a very safe area, and our kids often go down to the beach by themselves, mainly to play on the rope swing. There is also a playground with slides and swings 2 minutes walk from the house.

The beach house is an easy 3 minutes walk to the beach, and is walking distance to cafes, restaurants, takeaways (fish and chip shop) and to a service station for fresh milk, bread and the daily paper. The bus stops at the end of the road. It is 5 minutes drive to the supermarket and the local Saturday market in Ostend.
