Our home

Our holiday home is comfortable, clean, and compact with three bedrooms and two sitting areas. The deck is large and is surrounded by native trees and plants. The front deck has views of the sea and the surrounding mountains. There are lots of long and enjoyable walks to do from the house, both on the seaside and the surrounding hills. We have a rain water tank so the drinking water is clean, clear and sweet. We also have a gas BBQ that can be used on the deck in the long summer evenings. We love spending time in our holiday home as it is warm and inviting during the summer months (Jan, Feb March).

Who we are

  1. We are a NZ couple who raised our children here in this home at Whangarei Heads. Jon is a retired teacher who now owns his own photography business (see www.propertyshoot.com). Jon loves to play piano and his old upright sits down in the games area of this house. Heather still teaches on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland where we live now after many years living and working in Asia. We both love to travel and want to do more so we figure this is a great way to meet new, likeminded people and share the resources we have.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our place is situated in the rural northern area of New Zealand. It is about a 40min car ride from Whangarei city via a lovely drive along the harbour. The area is safe and spectacularly beautiful with a pristine surf beach just minutes walk from the door. There are some wonderful walks up into the hills just south of our house and if you are a surfer or just love the beauty of northern New Zealand this place wont disappoint you. Mount Manaia is 10min drive away as is the beautiful McLoeds Bay where you can buy fish and chips, hire kayaks and go horse riding. There are fishing tours available and can be sourced from Taurikura along with many of your holiday needs. The area is renown for it's fishing, diving and surfing.
