Beach-front, boats, bush, quality accommodation – Wild Bay provides a completely unique environmental experience. A choice of three luxury secluded holiday retreats set in 9 acres of mature coastal bush in a pristine natural paradise. The sea-front position provides private access to a sheltered marine environment and the Island’s coastal wilderness. Superb location, superb holiday homes of character, ambiance and romance.
The villa was originally a sea-captain’s house on the Manukau Harbour, moved from Onehunga and extensively upgraded as visitors’ accommodation, enhanced with many fine colonial features. It offers:
spacious open-plan living/dining areas;
master bedroom/en-suite, spectacular sea views
additional double bedroom
sunroom with daybed
second separate bathroom
verandah decks surround living areas – great for bbq’s
expansive patio deck overlooking virgin bush.
The 9-acre estate is a rare example of a continuous unspoiled ecology, with an outstanding variety of mature and virgin native-forest specimens: puriri, kohekohe, tawa, kowhai, taraire, rewarewa, mamaku, kanuka, lancewood, etc, running all the way to an exquisite private beach-front landing surrounded by native trees. The bush is alive with tuis, wood-pidgeons, moore-pork owls, fantails, etc.
The beach landing overlooks a calm shelly beach, perfectly sheltered from the prevailing south-westerlies, a perfect spot for a quiet swim around high tides, rowing and fishing. Arrivals by yacht or launch have a safe beach to haul up dinghies, or a private haul-up area if desired. The bays meander round to Oneroa, a short walk to the north, or endless walks around the bush-clad coastline to Park Point and eventually to Matiatia on the western side.
Huruhi Bay is an open bay between Surfdale to the east and Park Pont to the west, with a scattering of deep-water moorings (3. 5m or more) and unlimited anchorage, a secluded place for boating visitors from the south-westerlies. The bay provides immediate access to the flourishing fishing-grounds and the islands of the Hauraki Gulf, as well as the eastern beaches and marinas of the mainland. Ideal as a stopover for ocean-going yachts.
