We have a property for sale located at 3 Corbett Street, Hector. But first…a little about Hector.
Hector and Northern Buller
The three towns of Granity, Ngakawau and Hector are almost joined together into one. They string alongside the beautiful Buller coast 23km north of Westport. Further up the coast is the famed Heaphy Track and Karamea.
Hector is located just a few minutes drive from cafes, restaurants, two hotels and various galleries. It is adjacent to the famed Charming Creek Walkway and closeby to Chasm Creek Walkway, Britannia Track. There is whitebaiting on the Ngakawau River in season and fishing from the beach. The Ngakawau River is located just 300m down the road from our house. It is well known to canoeists. Millerton township and walkways through the old mining town are also close by.
Hector feels like the old NZ, the way it used to be; pristine and rugged with spellbinding scenery. There are one and sometimes two flights per day between Westport and Wellington as well as daily return flights between Wesport and Christchurch.
It is such a cool place for your family to stay. It is a place that is not full of rules. We feel like we own the beach! The locals like to cook their meals on the beach by lighting fires amongst the small granite rocks. Really neat place to ride motorbikes or quads on the beach. It feels like a million miles from the city and yet it is only 3 or 4 hours drive to Nelson and Christchurch. It is just an awesome place to get away from it all. You can just relax or go out hard core and do the outdoors thing.
