Shells House

We are looking to rent to families and for longer duration stays over the peak season. Relax and take a break in our stunning large three bedroom beach house that’s designed so that views of the Pacific Ocean and Mayor Island can be enjoyed from every area of the house. ‘Shells house’ is located eighty meters from one of the beaches best surf breaks and a five minute walk to the shops and bright lights of the Waihi beach central business district which has award winning cafes, and excellent facilities.

The long white sandy beach offers adventures for adults and kid’s alike whether its surfing or exploring the coastal walking tracks, fishing, safe swimming, snorkeling and kayaking.

There is so much to enjoy here at Waihi Beach. An old style NZ holiday town that is so close to Auckland, Katikati, Hamilton, Tauranga & Mt Maunganui yet has its own flavor. Plenty to do and see, lots of history especially early gold mining.

Shells house is set up for all, kids and entertaining. It has three large bedrooms, an open plan kitchen/living room/lounge area with ornate polished Matai flooring. It has a clean, fresh, bright and spacious feel to it and we hope you will take the time out to come and stay and enjoy it as we have.

Large off street parking available and space for the boat.

Counter sunk Spa in the deck with views of the Pacific ocean and Mayor Island (see pics).
