This is our 3rd stay at the Boathouse... We love the accommodation and the location. The apartment is immaculate and very well equipped for any eventuality. We arrived to a lovely chilled bottle of pinot gris in our fridge. We really enjoy people watching and seeing the coming and goings of the ferry to Russell. At night, the ferry stops at about 10pm but if you are a light sleeper close the bedroom door and open the shutters for a good night's sleep. There are a great set of shops 1 minutes walk from the apartment which has fish & chips and a superette, and the Marina area has the Cruising club plus an excellent Cafe just another 5 minutes away.The fish & Chip shop will cook your fish if asked - they have fantastic homemade pies as well. If fishing trips, outings to Kerikeri and Kawakawa etc, and reading and relaxing is your thing then you will love it here as much as we do. Cheers J&D

The Boathouse was simply beautiful. It was warm and comfortable. The service was above and beyond our expectations. It was clean, contemporary, and well stocked with soft blankets, lots of pillows, comfortable beds, luxurious towels, comfortable lounge with Netflix, Sky, DVD player. Washing machine and dryer. BBQ. Large table where three people could comfortably work together. We even arrived to find a complimentary bottle of wine. A short walk from a well stocked store that does pizzas, and a good quality fish and chip shop. The Boathouse provided not only accommodation but an experience as well. We will be back and we will be recommending it to others visiting the area. We booked directly with the accommodation providers and they were kind enough to offer us a discount. 10/10 in all respects. I will never forget our time there

We stayed upstairs in the Bridge. It's in a great location with easy access everything! The apartment is fantastically appointed and very comfortable. The views are fantastic. A truly unique stay. Can't wait to come back soon!

My husband and I had a lovely stay here for a long weekend getaway. The property is immaculate and the facilities are fantastic. Easy to book and communication was prompt and the hosts did all they could to make sure we had a comfortable stay. My husband loved the fact he could fish off the deck and I was happy with wrapping up and enjoying the view. Absolutely Superb location. Only thing I would say is, the ferry is quite loud and you can hear people walking around upstairs if the apartment upstairs is rented out at the same time. This won’t stop us coming back again though.

Right on the water with a large deck looking over the bay. We even spotted a ray swimming below the deck. Very clean and tidy, but only 1 shower room. A second toilet would have been useful. Two large bedrooms with open plan living area. Washing machine and dryer in the multi purpose shower room. Be aware that this house is next to the bay ferry terminal. So can be noisy from 6 til 10 every day. Overall a very good property with all required amenities in a convenient location.
