Shakespeare Cottage is a 2 bedroom, plus sleep out, Front Beach bach.

The generous kitchen is NZ Kauri and has a well loved history after spending time in Northland and South Auckland homes before being fitted into Shakespeare.

Sleeping quarters at Shakespeare Cottage are conveniently located off the hallway from the living areas. The main bedroom has a queen size bed with views out over Flaxmill Bay and Shakespeare Bluff. The second bedroom has a set of single bunks and a trundler pullout bed. The sleepout provides an additional sleeping area, with a queen sized bed, and is only a few metres away from the cottage.

The family bathroom is conveniently located by the kitchen.
