Beschreibung unserer Nachbarschaft und Gegend
The peninsular has lovely scenery and beaches either side for both safe swimming and boating or for surfing etc. There are lots of things to do locally, even a local cafe within walking distance and a pub in the next village. Locally there is a Club for non-members where food can also be enjoyed. There are some adventure activities close by and in Whangarei there are lots of things to do, galleries, museums, garden, waterfalls, golf clubs. Two kayaks available. It is well known as a habitat for Kiwi birds!! Some of things like theatre and shopping that are ticked are more for the Whangarei area of the town not the hamlet of Mcleod Bay. The next bay, Parua Bay, has a very good mini supermarket, garage for fuel, bakery and so on. Within walking distance is the cafe with take away food too.

Was wir mögen und was nicht… Dies sind unsere Wünsche und Hausregeln.
Although the house is partly furnished with older items and in 1970's style, one bathroom is more recent and all the beds have new mattresses, most being complete new beds in 2018. It is important to us that everything is left clean and tidy but a cleaner may be available if you prefer. We ask that no feathers are brought into the house in the form of pillows, duvets, down jackets etc. Our family has allergies and we advertise the property to rent as allergy free. No smoking, no drugs, no pets. No late night parties or loud noise. No visitors to stay overnight unless by prior arrangement. We do not mind children staying and in fact offer a high chair and travel cot and a few toys and games, providing any breakages are sorted and everything left clean and tidy. The lawns are looked after so the outdoor care may mean just watering plant pots and a few plants as required.
