Our home has panoramic views of the ocean and is a short stroll to Karehana Bay, a fantastic swimming beach. Relax in the sun, kayak in our three-person Canadian canoe, swim, walk, have fish and chips on the beach or a BBQ on the deck. This is the perfect place to be in the holidays! Ideal for families, or friends, we can accommodate up to 8 people and pets with prior approval.
The house features two separate levels with the main living area, deck, kitchen, double bedroom and single bedroom on the top level and a newly renovated 'granny flat' underneath with its own kitchenette, bathroom, small living space, bedroom and deck.
The views from the house are spectacular and can be enjoyed from any of the rooms (except the bathroom!) and the large deck in front of the house. Here you can lounge in the morning sun with a coffee, read a book from our extensive collection or enjoy a BBQ in the evening.
You will have sole use of the whole house while staying. We will be contactable by phone or email to help with any questions you may have while staying.
Things to note:
The house is located on the hillside, and it is not accessible from street level. You are rewarded with gorgeous sea views when you get to the top, but it is not suitable for those with mobility challenges as you will need to climb three flights of stairs (approximately 80m walk up the path).
Plimmerton is a picturesque coastal village and a popular holiday destination.
