    The Boathouse at the Bay of Islands

    Nineke Metz - 12/02/03

    After two years of careful planning and construction, The Boathouse in the Bay of Islands has opened its doors to guests. The Boathouse is located over the water in Opua between the car ferry and the beach. It consists of two fully self-contained luxury apartments with a nautical theme. On XtraMSN travel page The Boathouse gets described as: "The building is shaped like a boat, suspended over the water like a boat, and indeed, has both a landing (the bottom apartment) and a bridge above. The Boathouse combines all this seafaring style with facilities and an ambience that couldn't be surpassed by even the highest class city hotel".

    Property Manager Tania Townsend is very excited about The Boathouse: "As soon as the new brochure was at the Information Centres the phone started ringing. People are also finding information on the internet. The guests that stay at The Boathouse really love it". Ms Townsend expects a lot of interest from international visitors to New Zealand. One UK Tour Operator has already included The Boathouse in its brochure. Turquoise Holidays, who bring out a special brochure with beach houses and villas, were recently in New Zealand looking for new properties and were very quick to secure The Boathouse for their English clients. The Auckland market is also interested. Both the corporate and romantic get-awayers are being targeted to come and stay at The Boathouse.

    Local craftsman and builder Grant McInnes used a lot of innovative techniques to pleasantly surprise guests. As you walk into the foyer, the porthole in the tiled floor is the first eye catcher. Another nice touch is the floating floor in the kitchen, which is softer to stand on compared to traditional wooden floors. The lounge offers comfortable suede lounge suites and a complete home entertainment system.

    The bathrooms have under floor heating, custom made vanities and a bidet. The balconies are shaped like the bow of a ship with railings of curved glass topped with stainless steel. And because of its location, there are views from every room.
