Beachfront bliss at Boathouse Bay

Snells Beach will soon be home to a brand new residential development, Boathouse Bay comprising of 33 unique homes with stunning sea views.


Just 50 minutes from central Auckland, Boathouse Bay will offer residents the quintessential Kiwi bach lifestyle right on the coastline of Auckland’s Mahurangi Peninsula, with premium design, luxury finishes, a community park and prime coastal amenities.


Boasting a diversity of houses, from single level to double storey and three storey tower homes, Boathouse Bay will all be set amongst landscaped sand dunes and native bush.


Architect Ken Crosson says Boathouse Bay is set to challenge the way that Kiwis think about coastal living.




“Rather than carving the site into a few large sections featuring mansions accessible only to the super-elite, we decided to create a purposeful development that, whilst still of the highest quality, allows a greater number of New Zealanders to live more affordably on their coastline,” he says.


“The vision for this coastal development was to find another way of looking at this site, to get more people to be a part of this special coastal community and bring price points down. It’s a contemporary take on the traditional Kiwi bach, so more people can achieve this kind of living.”



Renowned landscape architect Rachel de Lambert from Boffa Miskell says the design of the development allows its homes to settle into the dramatic coastal setting, tucked between the native forest hill, headline backdrop and restored dunes that define the arc of the beach.


“Boathouse Bay has been designed so that residents feel as if they’re part of the magnificent beachside environment. It’s a very desirable opportunity to live in a small-scale community at Snells Beach.”


Prices range from $775,000 to $1.6 million. Site visits are available by appointment. Visit or call Claire Boggiss, Colliers International, 027 505 5250.
