Overview

Photos and Description of this Shelly Beach holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

This beautiful beachfront property located at Shelly Beach, north of Auckland, is situated on a secluded inlet off Kaipara Harbour. It features a delightful log cabin-style home set in a landscaped garden and surrounded by native bushland, with the house directly overlooking the beach below. The property offers complete privacy, as it adjoins a wooded nature reserve and is screened by trees, with no other houses in sight.

The house features an impressive deck on three sides, ensuring the stunning views are fully maximised. Imagine relaxing with a drink at sunset, preparing a meal with the Weber barbecue, wandering along the beach or helping yourself to fruit from the orchard, including apples, plums, figs, tangelos and avocados.

Shelly Beach has long been a lifestyle mecca. With its mix of quaint baches and quality homes, it offers all the delights of harbourside living in a rural setting, still within easy commuting distance of central Auckland. And if you need to stay connected, we now offer free wifi.

Here you have Kaipara Harbour at your back door, with an all tide boat ramp giving you access to excellent fishing. The wharf is a favourite fishing spot and charter operators pick up from here for excursions out to the secret spots. The Jetty Café is perfect for coffee or a meal from the range of delicious food on offer and also stocks grocery items.

The coastline has many secluded beaches and is great for walks with family and friends (please note dogs are welcome with prior approval - outside only). The harbour is shallow and the beaches are very safe for families. Along with the waterfront beach there are reserves and two playground areas ? one on the waterfront and the other on the reserve adjacent to Shelly Beach Volunteer Fire Force Station.

Other attractions in the area include various lakes, forests and west coast beaches such as Muriwai. Just 10 minutes drive north of Shelly Beach is the beautiful South Head golf course.

Special conditions:

~ Early check-in (11.00am) and late check-out (3.00pm) so you can enjoy your stay for longer

~ Dogs allowed with prior approval (outside only)

~ Supervision of children required on deck and garden area, which has direct beach access

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$50.00 per stay); Linen (Optional, NZ$15.00 per person); Security Bond (Required, NZ$200.00 per stay);

Superb situation, so private and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Superb situation, so private and peaceful. Lovely outlook, cosy fire, best shower ever. Good DVD collection and board games as it rained all weekend we utilised these. Enjoyed bumping into old friends at Parakai hot pools and mountain biking in the mud at Woodhill on the way home. Can't wait to go back in better weather so we could use the kayaks. Love all the mid century furniture and the architecture of the log cabin. Fantastic!

Stunning property, pretty much your own bay/beach with a beautiful outlook over the harbour.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property, pretty much your own bay/beach with a beautiful outlook over the harbour. Masses of birdlife amongst the trees, the Cabin has everything you'd need, and we'll definitely be back. We visited in the mid-Winter and it was plenty warm enough with the heat box (or the heat pump if we were feeling lazy). Looking forward to checking it out in the summer. And less than an hour from our place in Auckland. Highly recommended!

Such a lovely place to stay. The cabin is well equipped and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The beach is literally on the back door step, waking up in the morning to that view is incredible. My family thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you!!
