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.

    Comfortable clean and well equipped cottage, where it was easy to relax without the distraction of television and radio, and more than compensated for the initial appearance of the unkempt grounds. It was within easy walking distance of the beach. Fish and chips at the local restaurant were an added bonus.

  • Location was great, close to beach and peaceful surrounds

    Location was great, close to beach and peaceful surrounds. Nice furnishings but left unclean by previous renters which was a let down.
