Beaches, birdsong, quiet neighbourhood, lovely view, privacy ... come to Algies Boathouse.
The self-contained apartment overlooks peaceful Kawau Bay, about an hour north of Auckland. The ground floor apartment, across the road from a walkway to the beach, is comfortable, roomy and light.

15 minutes drive to Matakana, vineyards, galleries and shops and loads of food choices, beaches and nature walks.

Relax with complimentary wine, cheese and nibbles and watch the boats sail by.

The space
Enjoy a little luxury in total privacy. Think big fluffy towels, hotel standard cotton sheets and soft linen duvets. Top quality bedding including a choice of feather or latex pillows.
We offer a large, quiet bedroom with Queen bed. (A single mattress can be arranged for a third person and we can provide a small portable cot to make the very little guest comfy.) There's a separate living room with sofa, table and chairs, and a small but workable kitchenette area with microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. There is no stove so don't plan to cook - relax - you are on holiday. We provide the things you need to make a simple French-style breakfast.
Pamper yourself in the marble bathroom and relax - allow yourself to be tempted by your complimentary hamper of New Zealand wine, juice, and goodies. Organic tea, coffee and old fashioned organic milk.

Guest access
Check yourselves into Algies Boathouse, in complete privacy, accessing the key from the lockbox. (Code provided before your stay date.)
Guests have the entire apartment to themselves: bedroom, living room, small European kitchenette, marble bathroom with shower. There is a covered sitting area in front of the apartment. Guests are welcome to use the driveway - park your cars securely in front of the apartment if you like or on the road in front.
Enjoy your stay and please ask us if you need anything we haven't thought of.

Location

Algies Bay, Auckland, New Zealand

The neighbourhood is leafy, quiet and inhabited by people who love the sea and boating. We enjoy panoramic views of Kawau Bay. A very short drive takes you to Mahurangi Bay - home of the annual vintage yacht race. Martins Bay - an iconic kiwi beach, perfect for families, is five minutes by car, and so is Scott's Landing.
Drive ten minutes to Matakana, fifteen minutes to Omaha Beach, half an hour to Tauwharanui Regional Park. Drive in any direction for a taste of beautiful Kiwi food and wine in stunning scenery.
