Leave all your worries far behind at this stunning retreat nestled in native bush with panoramic views of the water.
Be captivated by the breath-taking vista high over Whakanewha bay and the regional park the moment you walk down the entry steps through the beautifully landscaped grounds. For those seeking privacy, native bush and the beach, plus that special holiday essence – Baywatch has it all.
Enjoy your glass of wine on the deck, listen to the bird song and watch the constantly changing colours of the bay and sky throughout the day. You will never want to leave.
You will have direct access to the regional park at the bottom of the property, and scenic tracks that take you down to Whakanewha beach where a swim at high tide in summer is a must. Take a picnic and check out the Cascade Falls track, watch the shore birds and enjoy the slow ebb and flow of the tide.
Inside, the large lounge is perfect for that book and afternoon snooze, and in winter the wood burner will keep you cosy and warm. Boredom is not an option with the basket chock-a-block full of entertaining board games, with the flat screen TV (with Sky and Netflix) your last resort.
The extensive deck is well set-up with bean bags, lounge, table and chairs, sun umbrella and barbeque with three sets of sliding doors encouraging indoor outdoor living.
Dinner for six is on order in the separate dining area where you can watch the evening gently close in over Whakanewha bay.
Baywatch has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main bedroom on the top floor has a king bed while the two bedrooms on the lower floor have queen beds. The fourth bedroom space with a double pull-out couch bed is on the top floor .
With two bathrooms and plenty of indoor and outdoor space, there is ample room and private places for everyone.
The spacious, well-stocked kitchen with modern appliances is perfect for those who love to cook and don’t worry coffee lovers – there is a coffee machine just for you.
Wander down the road to the famous Rocky Bay Hall café which is open on Saturday and Sunday mornings and for those with fitness in mind, the coastal walking track starting not far from the hall can take you all the way to Matiatia where the ferry docks. There is so much to explore and discover within this hidden gem of Waiheke.
