Makara Retreat on the Beach
Absolute Makara beachfront... minutes from mayhem... miles from Monday!
A beach house for all seasons & constructed in 2005, this modern intepretation of the simple kiwi bach is sure to delight. A relaxed & picturesque 17 km drive from the hustle bustle of Lambton Quay (or an equally picturesque 15 km drive from Johnsonville), Makara Retreat has all the elements to ensure you unwind, relax & rejuvenate.

In summer, you'll literally open up the entire home with four full sets of bi-folding doors. Lazy bbqs & al fresco dining will likely be order of the day. Being 'absolute waterfront', you'll be mesmerised by its everchanging & captivating views. Luxuriate in the '600 thread count' Egyptian cotton sheets, whilst the sound of lapping water makes sleeping a dream. In the morning enjoy a brisk walk to the WW2 gun enplacements or meander hand in hand along the gorgeous coastline. Upon your return, enjoy the culinary delights of the Makara Cafe only metres away from your oasis. In winter, you'll appreciate the warmth of modern construction & you'll love snuggling up to the crackling new toasty woodburner for extra ambience with friends or your soulmate.

Superbly appointed with the finest chattels throughout including oversized Natuzzi Italian leather couches to ensure you'll have lots of room to fully stretch out. Watch sky tv on the HD Plasma from the lounge or snuggle up in bed as there's also a plasma in the master bedroom. Alternatively, chill out listening to your favourite C.D on the Bose stereo. This is your opportunity to treat yourself..& recharge both the mind & spirit. An ultimate lazy hazy waterfront location... here the mundane stresses of life & the patchy cellphone coverage will be the last thing on your mind... Spectacular scenery & unspoilt landscape.

Less than 30 minutes from Wellington, but miles from Monday.... If its activities you want there's a host on your doorstep (other than the ocean). Try horsetrekking, Wellington's premier mountain bike trails... or a relaxed round of golf (just 6 kms away). The choice is yours... do it all... or do nothing.
