I was born and raised on the island nation of Vanuatu (then called the New Hebrides) and I am passionate about the ocean and nature. I am a qualified scuba diving instructor, yoga teacher and love to cook. I am a "foodie" and enjoy wine. I travel regularly both internationally and within New Zealand. Returning home to Onemana is both a privilege and a luxury. It is the ideal place to recharge and reconnect with nature. I enjoy reading and cycling, and with my keen cyclist of a husband, our holidays are very much active adventures. Onemana is where we like to relax. I have always had the company of a dog and love going on walks. I also enjoy riding my motorcycle around the country. I am a volunteer Rural firefighter with the local unit.
Why Erika chose Onemana
Relax and recharge in this beautiful bay, fall asleep and wake to the sound of the surf, watch and listen to the many native birds in our garden, splashing around in the birdbath. The tuis are so plentiful they are almost too noisy ! Bring your four legged fur child with you. Sit on the sunny deck and enjoy the view of the ocean. Walk to the beach in 2 minutes or enjoy a game of tennis on the free outdoor fully turfed courts, with the best view in the world. Go surfing or try your luck at surf casting. Prefer something less energetic ? The petanque court is right beside the tennis courts. We had this house built and it is our permanent home. We love the natural unspoiled beauty of Onemana, the quiet and simple back to basics lifestyle and the magnificent sea views we are privileged to have from the house. The daily changing landscape of the beach is a photographer's playground and the sunrises are amazing. The "metropolis" of Whangamata is only a 15mn drive away if you fancy a cafe style meal, a caffeine fix, some shopping and need the hustle and bustle of a busy summer seaside town. Ónemana Cafe" is 300 meters away. There are several walking tracks throughout the village, around the 2 lakes and close by in the surrounding commercial forestry areas as well as a coastal track to Octopus Bay, a gem and dog friendly beach
