A centrally located, spacious flat ideally suited for a couple but with the possibility of another person sleeping on a single bed and 2 extras sleeping in the lounge on an electronic air-bed. It is fully equipped for self-catering and provides pleasant independent relaxation in a private, self-contained area. We live at the other end of the property and enjoy receiving visitors from all nations, having spent time in Asia, Europe, Polynesia and South America.

The space
The kitchen area is fully equipped for self-catering although we leave tea, coffee, milk, olive oil and condiments for use. Eat in or go out to visit cafés as you wish. In drawers and cupboards there are cutlery, crockery, cooking pots and pans and glasses. The spacious lounge has a large settee and 2 recliner sofas for watching freeview TV or a selection of videos. Cast Netflix, Youtube or Spotify to the TV from your phone. A Netgear appliance gives link-up to Wifi. The concrete-block flat has a ventilator in the lounge and heat-pump/ air-conditioner in the bedroom. You can relax outside on the private patio area with an outdoor table and chairs and sun-umbrella. We can also set up a small gas barbecue on request. The area is frequented by tui (white-breasted parson birds), kaka (native parrots) and kereru (native wood pigeons).

Guest access
A. Take the 502 bus and get out at the SPCA corner (ask the driver to let you know where to get out). Walk c.350 metres along Pacific Pde to number 44.
B. From the car ferry on Kennedy Point drive straight ahead past the schools to the round-about at the start of the peninsula, turn left into Alison Rd and then immediately right into Jellicoe Parade. At the end of Jellicoe Pde turn right into Ocean Rd, then left into Pacific Pde (direction sign Oneroa). 44 Pacific Pde is 300 metres further on your left.

Location

Auckland, New Zealand

Situated on a ridge road, the berm of the property is often used by passing cyclists to take photographs of hills and vineyards and Tamaki Strait to Beachlands and Maraetai across the water. The address is very convenient for reaching most beaches. There is a 15 minute walk down to Little Oneroa Beach with a sheltered beach, a children's playground and sandpit and public electric barbecues. Oneroa Beach and village with shops and cafés is another 5-10 minutes' walk from there. If you have children Enclosure Bay, sheltered from waves by a reef, is excellent for swimming or kayaking at high tide. Palm Beach, with palms at one end and secluded Little Palm Beach at the other, is also a 25 minutes walk away. A walk down to Bisou in Surfdale for French croissants, crêpes or cakes is also recommended.

Between us we have fluency in English, Tongan, German, French and Japanese and reasonable ability in Spanish. We enjoy listening to music, drinking coffee and wine, fishing from our small boat and walking with our small dog.
