Come try a Houseboating Holiday!

As everyone knows 'messing about in boats' is fun. Fishing, diving and sailing are just a few of many reasons to get afloat - now there's houseboating! Houseboating is the perfect means of accessing all this fun and relaxation, surrounded by Whangaroa's natural beauty, yet still enjoying all the comforts of home.

A Houseboat - the holiday house afloat! - more space than a pleasure boat and more versatile than a waterfront house. Houseboats are user friendly - if you can drive a car you’ll find it easy and fun to operate. Click here to find out more about the Maple Leaf.

Houseboats provide a base for lifestyle activities - bring your own craft and raft up to you're houseboat as the mothership. Go

and your floating accommodation's right there! No need to pack up and drive home!

Sit back in the lounge and enjoy the view or fish, dive and swim from your doorstep! Cook your catch on the handy BBQ or use the spacious kitchen. Row ashore and spend some time exploring and then back to your home on the water. Relax onboard for the evening or be whisked away to a waterfront restaurant for first class dining.
