Rain­bows End

Real Estate Outlook - - Location -

Rain­bows End is a tiny coastal set­tle­ment about five min­utes drive from the pop­u­lar Matakana vil­lage. The mix­ture of homes and hol­i­day baches nes­tle on the ridge among trees over­look­ing Sand­spit and out to Kawau Bay. The tran­quil lo­ca­tion has an amaz­ing mix of coastal and coun­try views. It has a boat ramp next to a small re­serve where chil­dren can kick a ball around and pad­dle when the tide is in. Rain­bows End is close to Matakana vil­lage, which has a huge range of at­trac­tions in­clud­ing the Satur­day farm­ers’ mar­ket, cafes, pubs, restau­rants, a bou­tique cin­ema and a small shop­ping cen­tre. Omaha’s surf beach is about eight min­utes drive from Matakana and about an­other 25 min­utes drive on a gravel road is Tawha­ranui Re­gional Park – a preda­tor-free fenced open sanc­tu­ary. Snells Beach and Wark­worth pro­vide plenty of shop­ping or you can catch the ferry from Sand­spit out to Kawau Is­land. Martin’s Bay, about seven min­utes drive from Snells Beach has a boat ramp and a safe swim­ming beach. And there’s also Scan­drett Re­gional Park and Scotts Land­ing – part of Mahu­rangi Re­gional Park – to ex­plore. Don’t for­get the marine re­serve at Goat Is­land Bay, just north of Leigh.
