Pt Erin pools, the hidden gem of St Marys Bay. I pick up an Almond latte from Mary’s café, then head down to the pools with my two boys, everyone’s happy!

The best of both worlds, being close enough to be part of the city, yet also a calm and elegant haven. Features are the beautiful Catholic Church, Library, boutiques, cafes and the picturesque Pompallier Tennis Club. It has a sense of home and community with world class views.

Up early, walk the dog down College Hill, down Jacobs Ladder, through the off-leash park, under the bridge and up past Pt Erin pool to Jervios Road, it doesn’t get any better!
The hidden secret of Auckland City! Great city and harbour views and access, local restaurants, bars and boutiques, St Marys Bay has it all. With smaller sites, this area is ideal for the very busy inner-city dweller.”
