Karekare is situated on the ‘Wild West’ coast just 45 minutes from downtown Auckland. But once you’re here you’ll feel light years away from the Metropolis! Sitting high above the beach (but only 10 mins away from it), Wharepuka (House amongst the pukas) is a peaceful haven with stunning bush and sea views, set on 10 acres of land.
Inside you’ll find all the comforts of home, including a massive high-ceilinged kitchen/dining/living room with panoramic views to the north and west - an ideal relaxing and entertaining space. Completely renovated in 2011.
Outside, admire the many native trees, watch tuis and wood pigeons, relax on the extensive decks or by the large fireplace, play petanque, have a BBQ, or soak in the outdoor bath with a glass of wine. For rainy days there’s a roaring pot-belly stove, extensive library, games, TV/VCR/DVD and stereo. In good weather you can take in one of the many local bush walks, visit the stunning local beach (famous as the film set for The Piano) or just soak in the unspoilt beauty that is Karekare. Suitable for families, groups or couples - summer or winter.
The house was completely renovated in 2011. It now features a brand new kitchen and bathroom, redecorated bedrooms & living space. It is light and spacious, feels modern yet retains a certain quirky charm. The outside area is beautifully landscaped and features extensive native plantings, an outside bath, fireplace (mmm, toasted marshmallows!), petanque court and choice of 3 decks to sit on - all with stunning views. Any weather, any time of year this is a little slice of paradise. And for winter visitors there are electric blankets on all the king and queen-sized beds.
