If you need a get away a weekend or longer then why not stay where the Beekeepers stay, at The Beekeepers Cottage.

Situated 50 kilometres North West of Auckland you'll find The Beekeepers Cottage at Shelly Beach, nestled on the Kaipara Harbour.

If you fancy relaxing with a fishing rod and catching a few Snapper or Gurnard then Shelly Beach wharf is the place for you and only 300 metres from the door.

If you are after something a little bigger then you can book one of the local charter boats that leave from the wharf most weekdays and weekends or you can take your own boat.

If fishings not your thing, then why not take in a round of golf at the local club or just take a relaxing walk at one of the picturesque lakes only 10 mins by car.

At the end of the day you can have a soak at one of the local hot pools then cook your catch in the well appointed kitchen or take a stroll down to the local cafe for a mouth watering selection of local fare and great coffee.

    We had a lovely stay in the cottage and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location. The cottage was exactly as described and our only complaint was that it could have been a little cleaner. It has nice decor and a real homely feel, as well as everything we could need for cooking and so on. We would be more than happy to stay again.
