Description

  • Beach Front Property
  • Only 15 minutes from Downtown Auckland along Tamaki Drive
  • Unique property, private beach nestled in trees

The Boat House is an architecturally designed hide away nestled amongst the trees on a very private beach 15 mins from downtown Auckland. Karaka Bay is home to a fortunate few, there are no cars (no garages) and is reached only by a bush walk down from the car park or a boat.

The beach is 7 meters from the front door with the view of the gulf framed by an ancient pohutukawa tree.

The Boat House has a loft style layout with the double bed room upstairs and three singles beds in the main area that double as couches (or day beds).

The peaked kauri ceiling gives The Boat House a sense of space and the windows and position of the kitchen make full use of the surroundings.

The Boat House sleeps 4. However, it is better suited for a couple if any more than 3-4 days.

The Boat house is nestled amongst native trees and the beach is right on the door step.

The layout is suited towards two people staying as a couple but additional people or children would be fine for a short stay.

The Boat House is situated at the bottom of a hill path. You park at the top of the path and walk down. Please let us know if you have a disability that may prevent you from getting to the house and we can advise whether or not it would be suitable.

Special conditions: Pets allowed with prior approval, Smoking allowed outside only, Rates: The min stay is 3 nights but contact us if you need just 2 and we will give you a quote. This is a private residence used for rental, it's not a hotel so cleaning fees may apply depending on the day of the week and length of stay...we like to cover the cost of cleaning separate to the nightly rate. We have a no party policy...we like awesome people that are staying to enjoy the location and respect the property :-)

    The property has a great location, but be aware that there is limited parking at the bottom of the road so the walk may be longer than anticipated. Just be prepared and take your time as the location is worth the walk.

    Sweet wee boatshed right on the beach which we loved. Beautiful quiet location and the kids had a great time exploring the beach and making friends. We'll definitely be back for another 'staycation'.

    Location was fantastic, although you do need to be a little fit to climb up and down the end of the road to the bach, but certainly well worth it! Love Karaka Bay!!!!!

    Wonderfully unique beach front bach (no road to cross) Feels far away but is so near all that Auckland has to offer. Great views to Browns Island and Waiheke. Kayaked around Browns several times during our stay. Hope we get to stay there again!
