About the neighbourhood
We are only a few minutes drive or 20 minutes stroll along the cycle way to the centre of Opua Village as well as the Marina and Boatyard. The Opua General Store is next to the wharf and is a well stocked and reasonably priced Grocery/Bakery (fresh baked bread and pastries every morning) and Allpress Coffee Stop. Worth a visit if you need to buy any provisions for your stay or rolls or sandwiches for lunches. (a light breakfast will be provided in the apartment for your first morning). The General Store also makes pizzas on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings (7 Days in the summer, check with your host Kerry for availability. The menu is on the pinboard in your kitchen)
