Real Estate Outlook - - Location -

In Rod­ney we can outdo the Aus­tralians by of­fer­ing three Manlys. Th­ese are Manly Vil­lage which is 7km along the Whanga­paraoa Penin­sula with Big Manly Bay and Lit­tle Manly Bay. It is close to Stan­more, Arkles, Tin­dalls and Mataka­tia bays and Gulf Har­bour. The vil­lage of­fers a range of restau­rants with foods from through­out the world, in­clud­ing In­dian, Thai, Chi­nese, Euro­pean, Ital­ian, Greek, and Ja­panese. There are a num­ber of spe­cial­ity shops, a med­i­cal cen­tre, phar­macy and ATM cater­ing to Mainly’s grow­ing pop­u­la­tion. Whanga­paraoa Pri­mary School is nearby. Brix­ton Re­serve is a slop­ing green with 96 steps en­abling pedes­tri­ans to reach Manly Park, the bowl­ing greens, ten­nis courts and Big Manly Beach. Manly Park is home to na­tive podocar­pus to­tara which can grow to 13 me­tres. Maori tra­di­tion­ally use to­tara for ca­noe build­ing and carv­ing. The head­land be­tween Stan­more Bay and Manly is known as Swann Beach and has an at­trac­tive lit­tle cover on its east­ern side fronting the greater Manly Bay area. Manly Beach is a shel­tered, cres­cent shaped beach. It has a sail­ing club – which fo­cuses on teach­ing ju­nior sailors – and is also a pop­u­lar wa­ter-ski­ing, and wind and kite surf­ing area. Manly was well es­tab­lished in the 1960s and 1970s. It caters to those who want beach­side liv­ing with only a short walk to the vil­lage or park. It is shel­tered from the win­ter south-west­erly weather.
