The Boat House is an architecturally designed hide away nestled amongst the trees on a very private beach 15 mins from downtown Auckland. Karaka Bay is home to a fortunate few, there are no cars (no garages) and is reached only by a bush walk down from the car park or a boat.
The beach is 7 meters from the front door with the view of the gulf framed by an ancient pohutukawa tree.
The Boat House has a loft style layout with the double bed room upstairs and three singles beds in the main area that double as couches (or day beds).
The peaked kauri ceiling gives The Boat House a sense of space and the windows and position of the kitchen make full use of the surroundings.
The Boat House sleeps 4. However, it is better suited for a couple if any more than 3-4 days.
The Boat house is nestled amongst native trees and the beach is right on the door step.
The layout is suited towards two people staying as a couple but additional people or children would be fine for a short stay.
The Boat House is situated at the bottom of a hill path. You park at the top of the path and walk down. Please let us know if you have a disability that may prevent you from getting to the house and we can advise whether or not it would be suitable.
