Living Like Kiwis

Spacious, sunny and cosy family home (with ducted air conditioning) in the delightful and safe Hauraki/Takapuna area.

Short bus and/or ferry ride to Auckland CBD, including the University of Auckland and AUT University. Bus to Massey University (Albany campus).

Take a leisurely walk to the beautiful Takapuna beach, playgrounds, cafes, or the local shops. Enjoy a sun-drenched deck and a large back yard with fruit trees, a trampoline, and a picnic table.

When you have had enough sun, head back indoors for table tennis, toys, books, and games.

The house has (ducted) air conditioning, piano, table tennis, toys, books and games. The back yard has fruit trees, a picnic table and a trampoline. The property gets lots of sun all year round. For your comfort and safety there is UV protective film on all the windows.

The living area upstairs is large, as is the downstairs rumpus room. The dining area (upstairs) seats 8. There is a fully equipped kitchen upstairs and a kitchenette (incl. second fridge and second microwave) downstairs. The upstairs bathroom has shower over bath (with separate toilet). The downstairs bathroom has shower and toilet. This allows for almost separate living up and down if you wish.

Stairs are relatively safe (carpeted, with hand rail and with no turns), and a child-proof gate is available for installation at the top of the stairs if requested.

The neighbourhood is very family friendly: safe, clean and quiet.

There is a cafe across the road, and it is a 5-minute walk to the Hauraki shops (including supermarket) and medical centre. Walk to Takapuna shopping area for a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars, a movie theatre, and a small mall.

The family friendly Takapuna beach is just a short walk away. See the sunrise, swim, walk, build sandcastles, or just relax. The water is usually very calm, and at low tide it almost feels like you can walk out all the way to Rangitoto Island. At low tide able walkers can walk around the coast from Takapuna beach to North Head and Devonport.

Also within walking distance are playgrounds, a primary school, and a walking/cycling path that takes you past mangroves, ducks and pukeko, and "Little and Friday" cafe.

Past the primary school is a vantage point with a spectacular view of the harbour bridge and city lights.

Easy walk to beach, shops, playgrounds etc. There is a bus stop 2 minutes walk away that can take you to the Bayswater ferry (which goes to downtown) or to the central city. Walk a bit further and reach frequent buses to the central city or Devonport.

The bike path just down the road offers another way of getting to Bayswater and Devonport.

Up to 2 cars can be parked on the property.
