House on Auckland's beautiful North Shore - walk to beach
House, Entire place - East Coast Bays, New Zealand
Family home in Murrays Bay on Auckland's beautiful North Shore. Three bedrooms, 1 bathroom, living room with woodburner, wooden floors, 2 decks with outdoor furniture, barbecue, garden with fruit trees. Peaceful, sunny position. We are at the end of a longish driveway and we also back onto the grounds of a primary school so it is very peaceful. Sit out on the decks and enjoy the sun and birdsong.
You can walk to Murrays Bay Beach in about 7 minutes. There is a cafe there or you can continue walking (along the beach or clifftop) to Mairangi Bay where there is a wonderful beach, lots of cafes, one or two restaurants, supermarket, post office, children's playground etc. Basically, there are beaches all along this coast, many within walking distance, or just hop on a bus. Go the opposite way and you're in Browns Bay, with several supermarkets, banks and a library.
For the Rugby World Cup, there is free bus and train transport for ticketholders. You can catch a bus (about 8 minutes) to the main bus station on Constellation Drive and then pick up free transport to Eden Park.
Our house is not fancy but it is in a fantastic location. We have a master bedroom with a queen bed, a bedroom with a king single and another bedroom with a single. We also have a double sofabed in the living room, plus we have a couple of very comfy camp beds that can go in the bedrooms if need be. Like many older houses in Auckland, it can get cold at night/early morning. We have a woodburner and plug-in oil heaters for the bedrooms if there is a cold snap (hopefully, the weather should be warm by October).
Our house is available 8 October to 1st November. We would be happy to rent it to a maximum of 5 adults (or 6 people including children). The minimum rental period is 2 weeks. Price: NZ$1750 a week.
We have a flatscreen TV but no Sky - however, if Sky is deemed essential then we could get it installed for a small extra charge.
We have not rented out our house before and are hoping to attract people who will treat our house as a home and not trash it! It would be great if they could also put a food block in our fish tank once a week.
We would happily provide a file of maps and recommendations for things to do in the area and beyond.
