For a romantic relaxing getaway by the seaside in a sophisticated tasteful environment book now at Shelly Beachouse. Wake up in the finest linen, have coffee on the bedroom balcony overlooking the gorgeous Putiki Bay then wander downstairs for a spa in it’s own garden featuring fruit trees and grapevine. Then perhaps choose to stroll through the main homestead garden to Shelly Beach regarded by many to be the best swimming beach 3 hours either side of high tide or take a 5 minute walk to Ostend to enjoy a cafe coffee, Saturday morning market or shop for knick knacks.

Later you can choose to either bike a little further afield or if you want to sample some of Waihekes outstanding wines catch the Island vineyard hopper bus which stops just 118 meters from your door. Or Why not take your partner for a romantic row in the 10ft fyran ready for you on Shelly Beach.

But there is more. Whether it is advice about what is happening where or what to do on the Island your attentive but discreet hosts Simon and Mary who live in the main homestead are there to help. Mary also runs her own boutique baking kitchen at 8 Shelly Beach so if you require a cake or other sweet delights to celebrate a special occasion of just fancy a special sweet delight do ask her. Simon the Veterinarian is happy to answer animal related queries at no extra charge!

If you are a GOLFER but couldn't bring your clubs we provide two sets of clubs and trundlers. The 11 hole Waiheke course is in great order with greens running true and fairways really benefitting from recent rains.

Finally THE CAR. You are welcome to use one of our cars - The Suzuki Swift - to get around the Island. We do not charge for the use but request that you leave some petrol tokens or top up with petrol. Some Island roads can be dusty or muddy so we also ask that you return it clean or leave a wee remuneration for us to take it to the carwash.

Special conditions: You are very naughty if you smoke but if you must please only outside. If you require a cake for a special occasion from Mary's Food with Flair kitchen please order with her prior to your arrival. dinghy, golf clubs and trundler are best reserved prior to your arrival. The stairs to the bedroom are steepish so might not suit the infirm. The property is primarily suited for couples - a max of four guests. Young children will need supervision around the stairs to the bedroom

    Fantastic centrally located bach with all the comforts you require for a romantic getaway for two. With a beautiful queen size bed, warm and dry environment and comfy living room to lounge in between vineyard visits! The available use of their perfectly sized and modern car to shoot around the island along with the private spa pool (with back massage jets!) really makes the stay extra special! Terrific value for money when you stay in this cozy 'A' Frame gem!

  • Great handy location to shops and eateries

    Great handy location to shops and eateries. Neat, compact accommodation with everything you need. The spa was lovely and the use of a vehicle brilliant. Lovely view off the back deck and great to hear the Tui's in the trees.
