BENEFIT FROM BEACHFRONT BOUNTY
Developed, extended, nurtured and operated by one family since 1965, the beachfront Maketu Beach Holiday Park offers options and opportunities for new owners.
If you've ever dreamt of moving to one of the last bastions of genuine Kiwi coast near a major population base; of putting lifestyle before livelihood yet needing a livelihood to support your lifestyle, this could be the property for you.
The holiday park property of 3,729 sq. m pure beachfront and the near new home that shares those jaw dropping ocean views from 795 sq. m above the park make up the subject offering. The Lockwood home with its huge decks a superb place to live while you execute the holiday park's continuation or reinvention.
The Maketu Beachside Café and Restaurant is the 'honey pot' earner on the complex. Established as tearooms in 1967 and rebuilt at the turn of this century it has evolved into a popular destination for locals and patrons from far and wide. Many groups, including cruise ship passengers, have enjoyed imbibing and dining while soaking up the spectacular panorama from this, one of very few genuine waterfront cafes on the Bay of Plenty coastline. There is scope to extend the premises to maximise the superb location and increase its already substantial turnover.
The eclectic variety of accommodation configurations which includes duplex motel units constructed around 2000, transportable cabins, tourist chalets and flats, provides plenty of options. The land is zoned residential - imagine creating a couple of sought-after sites on the beachfront below the newer home. You could combine retaining some of the accommodation, e.g. the motel, with redeveloping the remaining land.
The holiday park's recent core business has been housing RSE (kiwifruit) workers for a steady income stream for ten months of the year with reduced operational and time commitment.
The two-title property will be auctioned as one lot, then, if passed in, the Holiday Park and Café title will be auctioned.
