Motel for sale on Great Barrier Island, New Zealand.
Great Barrier Island with its unique characteristics is home to well-known motel, Tipi and Bob’s Waterfront Lodge at 38 Puriri Bay Road, Great Barrier.
Situated across from the beach on 4,838 sq. m of slightly elevated land so guests can take in the spectacular views of Tryphena Harbour and the northern tip of the Coromandel Peninsula. Contrast with this the rear of the property slopes up to a native bush backdrop to give that other natural aspect of the island and why people are attracted here.
The property comprises 6 motel units (1 X studio, 3 X 1 bedroom & 2 X 2 bedrooms), cottage (can sleep up to 8), restaurant, bar and bistro, commercial kitchen, various out buildings and 2 bedroom owners’ residence.
Business is generated from a number of sources including holiday makers, business people, those working on the island for short periods, weddings and conferences.
After more than 20 years the owners would like to retire and will sell as a freehold going concern or business only with a new lease. This presents a new operator with some opportunities to grow the business particularly in the restaurant, weddings and conference side.
Great Barrier Island has a culture all of its own that offers many attractions including great fishing, boating, diving, tramping, hunting and beaches. With a reputation for its unspoiled wilderness it’s like stepping back in time when life was much less stressful. DOC and Auckland City Council maintain walking tracks, along with a large group of volunteers committed to the reintroduction of native and endangered birds to a number of Hauraki Gulf Islands including Great Barrier.
Travel to the island is provided by a number of operators with either scheduled or charter flights or ferry services www.sealink.co.nz. Great Barrier Airlines www.greatbarrierairlines.co.nz and Fly My Sky www.flymysky.co.nz from Auckland.
For anyone who enjoys the great outdoors and is looking for a profitable business that offers a lifestyle that’s a little different to the norm, please contact me for further details.
