Questions and Answers 
Schools, Airport, Lifestyle, Wine-Region, Attractions, Sports and much more

What is the price for a luxury coastal property in Hawkes Bay?

Since nothing has been built or sold in Hawkes Bay which is comparable with our house  - We either have to use other coastal luxury properties from around New Zealand or properties from the area without Waterview.


Therefore we extended the question:
What are the prices you pay for residential coastal properties in different locations in New Zealand?


and then we asked:

What are the prices paid for high-end real estate in 2021/2022 in Hawkes Bay?

 Are those properties comparable to our waterfront view luxury house?

The answer is yes and no. 

Either way - It shows that 65 Timoti Road is an excellent investment with a lot of value for money espacially if bought furnished.

How to find coastal properties for sale?

We visited 70 properties when we were searching for the perfect spot to build our coastal dream home on the entire North Island 15 years ago.

It is a bit easier today but much more expensive. Especially up North. Auckland and Tauranga. 

First Hawkes Bay:

Why is it hard to find Luxury Coastal Homes for sale in Hawkes Bay New Zealand?


Second New Zealand:

How to find a coastal property for sale in Hawkes bay or at the New Zealand Coast? 

Search Tools like TradeMe, and Google make it easier to find a coastal home but it is still a big challenge.

Unfortunately, it's also not only about finding a luxury home at the coast to buy. Risk-Management has also to be considered. We prepared content for this:

Consider rising sea levels and coastal erosion before you buy a coastal property.

Finally, can your much loved new coastal house with a beachfront view also be insured in 2030?

Don't buy until you know the risks!

Many councils around New Zealand provide great tools and long term considerations. Hawkes Bay even has a Hazard Map where you can type in our address to find out about if your future property is in a hazard zone.

Is Hawkes Bay a good place to live regarding lifestyle, investment, safety, flight connections and beaches?

The short answer is YES - Hawkes Bay is a Great Place to live!

But those are all very important questions to consider before you move to Hawkes Bay. We created an entire website page to address those topics:

What does the World say about living and buying real estate in Hawkes Bay?

Is Hastings which is the nearest shopping town to this property a good experience?

Does the Council have a long term strategy and do things get done?

How many flights a day does the Napier / Hastings Airport have?

How many beaches does Hawkes Bay offer and how good are they?

Is Hawkes Bay a safe place to live and are there differences between town and rural?

What do others (not the owners) think about this property - Bay House 65 Timoti Road?

There are three categories of people who experienced this luxury coastal home:


Bay House was for 3 years a "Bay Guesthouse luxury accommodation" for paying guests. They wrote 65 5 star reviews.
Here are their comments about the house?

Journalist Kem Ormand who runs a private cooking school
(Interesting what a passionate cook like her writes about the kitchen)

The Rochesters - Experienced local real estate agents which have seen many luxury properties over the years written in the Pacific.Scoop News

(Please use the links to see what they had to say)

Can you walk to the beach?

Yes, you could walk to the beach but it is not recommended. It's a half-hour walk through farmland with life stock down to the Waimarama Beach. Walking back up takes double the time and is tiring.

Ocean Beach next door is our favourite. A 10-minute drive. A drive to Waimarama-Beach is 8 minutes and includes a welcome stop for an Ice-Cream.

Yes, both of them are lovely sandy beaches, perfect for long and relaxing walks.

Education in New Zealand and where are the next schools?

What you need to know about the education system here in New Zealand and how you can find out in which schools your children can be enrolled.

Private Schools: For Girls: Iona College, Woodford House both in Havelock North, For Boys: Hereworth Havelock North, Lindisfarne College Hastings

Public Schools: Te Mata School Havelock North, Havelock North Intermediate, Havelock North High School

There is a school bus service, which picks up/stops on the bottom of Timoti Road

Which wineries are nearby?

The closest 3 wineries are in Havelock North

Craggy Range winery is well known for his wine and the fine dining restaurant

Te Mata Estate, with their flagship Coleraine

Black Barn Vinyard, also with a restaurant and during sommer time with a Growers Market

Do you have an Airport in Hawke's Bay?

Yes, Napier has a modern new Airport with multiple connections a day to Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch.

The scenic route from the Airport to Bay House is a 45 minutes drive.
