Dreaming of a seagoing lifestyle and your own slice of coastal cool?

A rare opportunity to weigh your anchor and secure “Mariners Rest” a romantic turn of the century villa in a prime coastal position that captures warm sea breezes and stunning deep blue ocean views.

Only a short stroll to the sparkling stretches of white sandy Big Bay, beach lovers will love all the best features of a coastal lifestyle with a relaxed beachy vibe.

This ship-shape coastal cottage is set in a spectacular seaside location. Swim, fish, boat, sail, bushwalk, bird-watch or just kick back and relax in your front-row position to take in all the action of the vibrant harbor. This delightful home is perfectly located for exploring the magical surrounding coastline.

With breath-taking views of the Manukau Harbour, out to Mako point and Cornwallis you’ll love to relax to the sound of the waves lapping against the shore, watching the sunset set over the west coast and moonlit waters at night.

A calm oasis of nautical cool, clean white walls and glossy dark timber floors, the light fresh interior provides a beautiful blend of cool seaside aesthetic with original villa charm. French doors and bi-fold windows maximise the view and bring the outside in, creating a bright, airy feel and a connection with the outside.

A large family, casual dining, and kitchen space opens up to wrap around covered decks providing the perfect spot for all weather alfresco dining and the sweeping water and rugged mountain views. Fitted with 2 heat pumps, a DVS system and a kent wood burning fire, this is a home for all seasons.

The spacious master bedroom has wide sea views and opens up onto the wrap-around decks. Each of the 3 double bedrooms are airy, light-filled rooms with special character.

Level lawns offer plenty of safe playing spaces for kids and the entire property is fully dog-proof. The beautiful gardens planted in natives and hardy coastals are an ideal backdrop for the outdoor living areas including an outdoor shower to wash off a day at the beach. The separate sleep-out cottage with a covered deck is perfect for extra guests or a home office.

Close enough to civilisation, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, this unique property could be the fulfilment of your dream to own your own slice of coastal heaven.
