Our beach-front holiday house has wonderful sea views. With two double bedrooms and two bedrooms with bunks it is ideal for extended family or sharing with two families.
There's a newly rennovated bathroom, two toilets, a large open-plan kitchen-dining-lounge area, a large rear deck and barbeque area at the back of the house plus more decks on the front and northern sides. We redesigned the interior layout to maximise the open living space.
The living area is expansive with plenty of room for family and entertaining activities. Congregate around the large native rimu family dining table (seats 8-10) for meals inside, or enjoy the evening sun while you eat outside on the large outside table (seats 10-12) on the western deck.
The living area contains two new three-seater and two two-seater sofas, a wood-burner fire (firewood supplied), an iPod stereo system, LCD TV with all digital FreeView channels, DVD player, unlimited wifi, and a bookcase loaded with interesting books and magazines.
The new modern kitchen has everything you need including stove, microwave, 2 fridge/freezers, dishwasher, jug and toaster, well stocked pantry (including basic food preparation products such as cooking oil, sauces, variety of teas, coffee, sugar etc), plenty of quality dinnerware, cutlery, glasses etc to cater for 11 or more guests.
Located at the back of the house on the western side, the master bedroom is quiet enabling you to sleep-in peacefully while the kids play in the living room. The modern king size bed with egyptian cotton sheets plus the gentle sound of the waves breaking on the beach ensures a good nights sleep. Includes electric blankets, his & hers dressers and ranch slider opening onto the western deck. Access to the master bedroom is through the adjascent children’s bunk room. At the front of the house is a small bedroom with queen size bed featuring a ranch slider opening onto the northern deck. Relax and nod off to sleep to the sound of gentle surf!
The main bunk room has two sets of single bunks accommodating up to 4 people. There is also an old portable cot for babies or toddlers but you'll need to bring your own baby sheets. Access to the master bedroom is through this room. The second bunk room has one high quality single bed plus a set of single bunks sleeping up to a total of three.
The day deck on the eastern and northern sides are bathed in sun during the morning and early afternoon. The larger afternoon/evening deck on the western side gets the late sun through until sunset. A Large outdoor table seats 10-12 plus integrated seating in the deck gives everyone somewhere comfortable to sit and eat outdoors.
Having decks on three sides of the house means that there’s always somewhere you can get into or out of the sun or away from any breeze. Four comfortable kwila timber/canvas chairs plus an aluminium/canvas lounger and two hardwood reclining deck chairs plus outside coffee tables make for pleasurable outdoors relaxing. A set of plastic outside chairs supplement these if you have a larger group.
The beach house and beach is extremely child friendly. Assorted small boys toys, jigsaw puzzles and board games are there for your kids' enjoyment. For babies and toddlers there's an old portable cot and a high chair. Of course, there's the 100 acre sand pit out the front to amuse kids for hours!
Seven fun sit-on kayaks plus a two-person sit-on sea kayak are available for your use along with adult and children’s life jackets. The two-person kayak has room for a dive bottle or your fishing gear. Goat Island is only 200 metres away and is great fun to explore. Some assorted boogie-boards are also available for use in the surf we occasionally get.
Quality bed and kitchen linen is supplied along with a plentiful supply of towels. The master bedroom includes egyptian cotton sheets. Our cleaning service takes care of cleaning the beach house, laundering supplied linen and towels and remaking the beds at the end of your stay.
The laundry is located out of sight and mind in the garage. There you will find a tub with hot and cold water, automatic Fisher & Paykel top loading washing machine and tumble-dryer. There's a clothes-line in the back yard.
Warm in winter with wood fire & other winter heating. Oakura Bay is a great place to get away from it all in the winter time too. The house is fully insulated. The living area is heated by a wood burning fire (firewood supplied). An oil heater warms the bedroom area of the house prior to retiring. Electric blankets warm the double beds, and three single beds. There are plenty of extra blankets available.
