Beach Yourself in Peninsula Paradise

306 Big Bay Road, Big Bay, Awhitu Peninsula

Viewing by appointment

Pairing the Pohutukawa clad shorelines of Awhitu Peninsula with the Auckland skyline in view across the expanse of water, this idyllic setting places the spotlight on absolute beachfront living. Between the undulating rural pastures and white sandy beaches, Big Bay is a slice of hidden paradise that offers a quintessential locality not far from the urban metropolis.

Charmingly relaxed, this coastal home originates from the 1950s and has only had three doting owners in its history, each adding to the mid-century qualities while reserving that nostalgic kiwi bach feel. Whether this is your forever beachside haven or secure holiday destination, the backdrop is surreal and the accommodation ideal.

The north-facing aspect confronts the beach with direct accessibility, making any toing and froing with boogie boards or fishing gear easy-going. Filled with sunlight, the open concept living, dining and kitchen spill out to the sheltered porch and down to the deck and lawns, making light work of ferrying the salad bowls and vino outside come the season of summer barbequing.

There are two double bedrooms and one bathroom accommodating the needs in the main house. Offering versatility, is the barn’s separate sleepout with its beautifully pitched ceiling and spiralling staircase. This accommodation includes a lounge, a mezzanine floor bedroom, kitchenette, and bathroom. Easily stowing the boat and tractor, the extensive barn is highly practical and a valuable asset all round.

Awhitu Peninsula is home to a variety of beaches with hiking tracks leading to the historical Manukau Heads Lighthouse, local farmers markets, vineyards, and golfing greens, knitted together with a close community and promise of adventure. And while a world away it seems, it’s merely a cruisy hour and a bit of scenic driving to Auckland City.
