Opahi Bay

Tucked away in Mahu­rangi West

Real Estate Outlook - - Location -

Opahi Bay is worth a visit even if you are not con­sid­er­ing buy­ing in this per­fect lit­tle par­adise tucked into the bush, north-fac­ing, be­side the wa­ter. It has spec­tac­u­lar views over­look­ing the Mahu­rangi Har­bour and Scotts Land­ing. It rubs shoul­ders and shares views with neigh­bour­ing Jamieson Bay, and is only five min­utes to­ward the coast from State High­way One, along Mahu­rangi West Rd. There is a good sealed road in, along the top of a fairly steep and wind­ing ridge. Also on this road is Zealan­der, a beau­ti­ful park-like set­ting with many fine works of art and fur­ther along is the Glass Stu­dio, fea­tur­ing more fine art. At the end of the road is Mahu­rangi Re­gional Park. It has a won­der­ful out­look from the top of the ridge, look­ing left over Opahi Bay, and right over Sul­li­vans Bay, Te Haupa – Sad­dle Is­land – and Te Muri Beach. Sev­eral hours can be spent ex­plor­ing this re­gional park, but al­low some time to visit Opahi Bay with it’s small tight set­tle­ment of­ten cling­ing to the steep bush-clad hill­side. At the wa­ter­front is a clus­ter of car­a­vans that staked their claim many years ago. There is only one road, and it ends at the boat ramp where rows of dinghies ex­plain why most res­i­dents have cho­sen this lit­tle place within close prox­im­ity to the Hau­raki Gulf, the nearby is­lands and great fish­ing and boat­ing.
