Location

Auckland, New Zealand

Blockhouse Bay is a close-knit well established community. Schools, medical facilities, library, supermarket as well as a variety of cafes and take-away food options make it a convenient stop over location. A large modern shopping mall including upmarket restaurants and movie theatres is just a couple of kilometres away. And the beach is also very close.
Our home is located on the site of the original historic "Blockhouse" and because of its elevated position, offers magnificent harbour views.

We are a semi retired professional couple. We enjoy entertaining friends and meeting new people. Heather loves gardening, Ian is passionate about sailing and music. We love where we live with expansive views over the everchanging Manukau Harbour ( west coast) and even a view of the upper Waitemata Harbour (east coast). Hence our business name "Twin Harbours" .
