About this listing
We are offering a 4 bedroom, 2 bath, modern house in a quiet cul-de-sac, in scenic Algies Bay with a bush backdrop and cows in the paddock behind. It is close to Warkworth town and several Regional Parks for excellent walks, swimming, snorkelling and surfing. We think you'll love our place because of the peace and quiet (tuis, pukekos and kookaburras are the only noise) and the 2 minute and 40 second, (yes we timed it!) walk through the bush to the beach. And all only an hour from Auckland.
N.B. The one review where it says I cancelled was due to INSTANT book which I was unaware of. I do not offer Instant Book and I would hate to cancel anyone. I have seen other hosts have had the same issue. So I hope this won't put you off.

We are both primary school teachers and have enjoyed living in New Zealand for 8 years, emigrating from England. We would love other people to enjoy our little piece of paradise. The beach is a real bonus in summer or winter and it really is only 2 minutes and 40 seconds from our front door to dipping your toes in the water. Lovely!
Snells Beach is just down the road for food shopping, cafes and petrol, while Warkworth town is a 10 minute drive. Then Auckland is only an hour away and it is easy to whizz down to watch a show or to shop in the malls.
If you like the outdoors, there is so much choice: Scandretts Regional Park and Martin's Bay are 5 kms from the house for short walks, swimming and stunning views, while Goat Island Marine Reserve, (superb snorkelling from the beach) or Tawharanui, (great surf and longer walks) are just 30 mins away.
