I feel so lucky to live in such a wonderful place, which is so near to all the things I love and cherish. We have the best of both worlds, as we are within easy reach of spectacular Muriwai and vibrant Auckland City. We get so much pleasure from strolling along the coastal paths and beaches to check out the ocean, wildlife, surfers and rock fishermen. We love our easy access to good coffee, excellent wine, fresh farm produce and local restaurants. I am a keen traveller, taking full advantage of the airbnb worldwide network, which has enabled me to visit so many amazing places in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. My passions include walking, nature, art, great coffee, UK comedy and music. This area is simply stunning, so good for your soul. With its own rhythm, community spirit, fun locals and vibrant artistic movement.
