Location + Surroundings
This property is found in a clearing on an avocado orchard in the Bay of Plenty coastal area on the North Island of New Zealand, a short distance from Whakatane and about an hour by car from Tauranga and Rotorua. Whakatane is known for its extraordinary white sandy beaches and has recently been named Sunshine Capital of New Zealand several years in a row. The property has over 500 avocado trees, two large duck ponds, and is just a short walk from a beautiful secluded beach. Native birds can be seen roaming the property along the way. There are several berry farms and cafes near Thornton Beach worth a visit.
At nearby Te Urewera National Park and Whirinaki Forest, mother nature can be seen at her finest in the form of untouched native forests with incredibly rich biodiversity. Moutohora Island, or Whale Island, is New Zealand's only active marine volcano, and it sits in the Bay of Plenty. Home to a wide range of rare and endangered plant and animal species, it is also an exclusive and fascinating destination for visitors.
The closest international airport, Rotorua International Airport, is just 80 kilometers away. Read More
