The SpaceWake up to the sound of waves lapping at your front door. Enjoy stunning views of the beach and Rangitoto Island, while relaxing with a glass of wine. Stretch out on the beachfront lawn, reading a book or have a swim in the sea. Watch the cruise ships sail past or if you're lucky, you may even spot a pod of dolphins playing in the ocean. If adventure is more your thing, the apartment has 2 kayaks and a stand up paddle board for you to explore the area by sea and boogie boards to play on when the surf's up. Enjoy a coastal walk from Milford to Takapuna along this gorgeous coastline, which takes you past multi-million dollar homes. The walk takes approximately 25 minutes and is well worth the time. The apartment is just a 5 minute walk to a world class mall with upmarket, designer shops and supermarkets. Within a 5 minute walk you will also find more than 30 cafes, bars and restaurants as well as banks, hairdressers, gyms and specialty food shops. The restaurants and cafes in Milford feature cuisine from around the world, including Thai, Malaysian, Japanese, Indian, French, Swiss, Spanish, Italian, Chinese and European. Just a 5 minute drive or a 25 minute walk along the road, you'll find Takapuna, another seaside suburb with well over 50 cafes, bars and restaurants so there's no chance you'll run out of places to eat or drink. There are several nearby golf courses between a 5-15 minute drive from the apartment. Takapuna has a great market every Sunday morning where you'll find fresh fruit and vegetables as well as all kinds of other treasures. Guest AccessThe apartment will be your fully self contained area.

The NeighborhoodMilford is a little piece of paradise that feels far from the hustle and bustle of the city, but it's only a 15 minute drive into the Auckland CBD. There's so much to do and see around the Milford area...plenty of coastal walks, the marina right across the road, parks, miles of beaches, Lake Pupuke and so many great places to eat, drink and shop. It's no wonder it was named Auckland's Hottest Suburb! Getting AroundThe apartment is a 5 minute walk to the Mall, the supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurants. It's just a 2 minute walk to the bus stop and it's about a 6 minute drive to the main highway, which takes you either North or South.
