About this listing
Our new home sits peacefully on a 1 acre section with a view across farmland towards Whitianga town - a perfect choice for those wanting to relax quietly and still be in close proximity to some of the Coromandel's most beautiful attractions.
We have a guest area of two double bedrooms, a bathroom and a sitting area located at one end of our home. It is separated from the rest of our home by a sliding door. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has a double, both with double wardrobes. The bathroom has a toilet, good-sized shower and a beautiful free-standing bath in the same room. When guests book one room, the other will not be occupied by anyone else during your stay. Our spaces are probably most suitable for couples and/or singles, however we will consider children.
The guest area joins a family room, kitchen/dining area and lounge that can be shared with us. We have decks that enjoy morning or afternoon sun, an expanse of lawn including vege garden and art studio, all of which we are happy to share with guests. Breakfast is supplied, consisting of homemade muesli, fruit and yoghurt or bacon and eggs on toast. Tea/coffee and juice are also available.
Interaction with guests
We are a couple that both work from home so are available to greet you and ensure your stay is a great one. We are happy to interact as much or as little as you like. We have bikes and kayaks that guests may use and are more than happy to share local information and ideas for sightseeing or relaxing, whether it be boat tours, plane rides, bush walks, swimming, fishing, shopping or beauty treatments. One of us is a project manager and the other is a counsellor and flax weaver. If you would like your stay to include a therapeutic component or if you are keen to try your hand at weaving then please discuss with us and we can arrange something to suit you.
We love the location of our home. It is semi-rural i.e. we have cows and horses in nearby paddocks, and it is not unusual to see a pheasant, pukeko or a bunny bobbing along, while at the same time Whitianga township and the beaches are easily accessible by driving, walking or riding a bike - depending on your desired level of exertion! The beaches offer a range of surf, quiet bays, surfcasting spots, wharf, boat ramp and jetty and a variety of outdoor activities. Our home overlooks the end of the airfield runway and we love watching small planes come and go - these may include microlights, Cessna, helicopters or vintage hobby planes. Our home is double-glazed so noise is not usually an issue.
Our home is 1km from the beach, 1km from the main highway, 3km from town (shops, supermarket, petrol stations, cafes, bars, library etc) and 3km from the airfield office.
We expect guests would be well-behaved and respectful.
