This outstanding eco lifestyle block is located in the upper reaches of Te Matuku Bay (McLeod's Bay) at the southeastern end of Waiheke Island. Despite its popularity as a holiday destination, a large portion of the island retains its peaceful rural character, achieved by strict subdivision controls.

It is in this quiet part of the island (40 minute drive on sealed roads from the ferry terminal at Matiatia) that Te Matuku Bay is located - a haven in a marine reserve. A wide range of bird life can be observed in the bay, with Northern Dotterel breeding on the shores of the scenic reserve (a short walk from the lifestyle block) and tui, kereru (native wood pigeon), herons, oyster catchers, fantails and stilts regularly sighted on the water, along the shoreline and in the bush.

This lifestyle block of approximately 19 acres (71/2 ha) is located on the northern slopes of Te Matuku Bay and accessed by Orapiu Road. It is secluded and enjoys all day sun and beautiful wide views over the upper reaches of Te Matuku Bay and surrounds. Approximately 13 acres of bush (native forest) covenant (registered on the title) covers most of the property, protecting the regenerating bush in perpetuity and creating a thriving natural ecosystem.

A generous building area (2960 m2) and growing area (1.9498 ha) have been designated on the property and there is boat access at high tide. The easy, elevated building area has been designed to take advantage of the sun and the sweeping rural and sea views. The growing areas are ideal for planting grapevines, natives or exotics adjacent to the house site. The bush covenanted areas have beautiful walks through regenerating native bush down to the water line.
