Beachfront holiday home in large, private, island location. This is an old house with 6 bedrooms and several common rooms. Large main kitchen. Upstairs (3rd story)overlooking the harbour is a large (50msq)bedroom containing 6 single beds, and 1 double. Centre level is a spare room of the same size, usually used for games. Downstairs (ground level)is the same size again, containing 2 smaller bedrooms with double beds and 1 single, separate kitchen, shower and toilet. Another average size bedroom adjoins the kitchen on the main level.

We like to keep the house clean and tidy, but it is old, large, and situated on the edge of a forest. It is basic accommodation, if it is not up to your standards, we have plenty of cleaning materials. Best described as 1 star (maybe 2?)

There are no shops, no neighbours, no crowds. Harbour frontage is good safe swimming. Ocean beach is a 20 minute walk through the forest. 28km of white sand. You will probably be the only person there.

Our specialty is barbeque steak on the open fire (inside or out). If that's not your thing, no problem, bring your veges.

We are here for a good time, not a hard time. We have kayaks, windsurfers, 3 and 4 wheel motorbikes,etc, all available at no charge. Nothing is new.

It takes around 4 hours on the ride on mower to mow the lawns. There is plenty of quiet space for hammocks or sunbathing.

There are always plenty of things to do. Building maintenance, gardening, re-potting plants, cooking, cleaning etc. you choose. I offer free accommodation in return for around 1 or 2 hours work per day. If it feels like a chore, you have selected the wrong job! I would like some help with a web site, social networking, tourism and general cleaning and maintenance. There is always a motorbike in need of some sort of repair.

Located approximately 7km from central Tauranga or Mount Maunganui. 15 minute access by private boat. 90 minutes by kayak. Vehicle ferry service available.
