There are two separate open-plan living areas at Kia Ora Beach House. The upper one has spectacular close-up sea views and takes up the entire entrance level, opening through large glass sliding doors onto a white timber verandah overlooking the beach. Tiled throughout in matt white sandblasted marble, it consists of a cafe-style kichen, a sitting area furnished with squashy white couches arranged around an open sandstone fireplace, and a chunky refectory-style dining table. Simple, billowing white curtains, loose rugs, an organic tree trunk side table with display of treasures, lazy ceiling fans, orchids and cutwork iron lanterns all enhance the ambiance.
On the lower level a secondary living area, slightly smaller, has the same components and opens via glass sliding doors onto the timber pool deck. A cosy sitting area near to the deck has a entire wall of driftwood planks with a large plasma television in the centre. There's another chunky, minimalist timber table and benches and a smaller cafe-style kitchen.
There are two cafe-style kitchens, both equally stylish with whitewashed timber cupboards, white caesar-stone counter tops, matt marble floors, Eurogas hob, stainless steel microwave and dishwasher. The larger one, on the upper main living level, also has an oven and cappuchino machine.
The smaller kitchen on the lower level has a wine cooler and white ostrich skin bar stools. There is a separate laundry room.
Kia Ora Beach House is situated between the beach road and Glen Beach, and is entered via weathered antique doors and stairs leading down through a zen garden with water features, buddhas and white pebbles.
Off the living area on the entrance level is a white timber verandah with wonderful beach and sea views. To the side of the house is a raw sandstone wall with stone blocks leading to a secluded stone outdoor shower.
In front of the house is a timber pool deck with oversized fat white mattresses, some arranged on a sleeping platform with a shade canopy stretched overhead. There is an outdoor barbeque, a white cement table and gorgeous carved antique Indian doors leading to the beach.
Rare for a beach house, there is one off street parking and one lock up garage 500m down the road.
