Our home

Built about 12 years ago this is a compact two bedroom cottage plus sleepout on a steep site with brilliant unobstructed sea views up the Whangaruru harbour. Situated about 200 metres from the white sandy foreshore at Oakura Bay. On site uncovered parking is provided for 2-3 vehicles but there are 57 steps to climb up to the house and will not suit the "mobility impaired" But the views are worth the climb and you will also enjoy the private bush setting with a sunny aspect facing north.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are Rob and Gillian, a married couple with 4 children, Emily, Daniel, Abbie and Matthew, ranging in age from 28 to 12 years. I work as a director of a property valuing company in Northland and Gillian keeps the peace at home! Gillian is from Aberdeen, Scotland and we met about 30 years ago when I was on a working holiday on a North Sea oil rig. Our interests include fishing, walking, reading and relaxing. Our oldest Emily is getting married in Carlingford, County Louth Ireland in October and we are keen to arrange a house exchange within reasonable proximity.
