The SpaceThe Nook beach and bush is a splendid setting. Totally quiet and peaceful, located at the end of a long driveway beside gorgeous beach and bush. No traffic or other noises... just the sound of bird song and the gentle shore lapping on the beach. One end of the beach is sandy and so clean and clear. At high tide and mid tide it makes a totally perfect swimming beach for children and adults alike. Kayaks are available at no extra cost. House is modern and extremely clean. Deco is relaxed and very comfortable. Bedroom is very private and opens out onto a huge deck area. The main bathroom is used by others in the house, but if guests prefer to use a separate, clean and functional private bathroom they are given this option. Guest AccessGuests will have access to their bedroom, bathroom (including bath), living spaces, decks, kitchen which is fully equipped including dishwasher. Laundry is available upon request. WiFi also available. There is a television, dvd player, bbq and two dining areas that guests are welcome to use. There is a private beach and bush track also for the guests to use. Interaction with GuestsI am happy to interact with guests if they are sociable, but I am also very respectful of guests wishes to keep to themselves or to have a fairly quiet and private stay. The NeighborhoodIt could possibly be the quietest in the country. Mostly the tuis and grey warbler birds are my neighbours. Boats come into our bay but the house is very private and set back from the bay a little Getting AroundVehicle is necessary to get around the area. But walking is perfect for around the Nook Bay and to the local reserve. Other Things to NoteI feel extremely blessed to live in such a wonderful place and part of the world. Come and experience it for yourself... extremely relaxing and rejuvenating place to stay and chill out. The host is a qualified deep tissue and relaxation massage therapist. Bookings for treatment at competitive rates can be made by pre-arrangement. There is a small resident Jack Russel dog named Kingi, he is extremely friendly and chilled out, and did I mention small? The house always smells fresh and clean, as it is kept clean and so is the dog. Kingi loves being around people, and can be quite cuddly, although he won't mind one bit if the feeling is not mutual and your host will ensure he does not invade your space. He is a very quiet dog (especially for a JR) and he will not hinder your experience here and will not be allowed into your room. Kingi has an international fan club now which is growing, as he is such an easy going dog and liked by everyone who meets him. My partner also lives with me and I have a flatmate. Both guys are relaxed and friendly and always respect the privacy of the guests who stay here. They are also keen to have a chat and are helpful towards guests.
