This home frontage is in the Pacific Ocean at high tide.

Situated on the southern side of the northern arm,

of North /Moana Cove, on Kawau Island. North Facing.

The jetty, attached to the house, can be used for arrivals and departures approximately one to two hours either side of the high tide. It would be advisable to co-ordinate the tide and the ferry for arrivals and departures.

We have a maximum of four guests at any one time.

Take advantage of our winter special, till the 31 Aug 2017.

Only $99 per night, (Instead of $120), for first two adult guests. Extra adults (up to two), are $20 each. If the extra one or two guests are children, (but not toddlers), who are 15, or under, they are free.

Please Note. The upper deck and railings are not suitable for unsupervised toddlers.

If you are arriving by your own water transport, please be aware of the tidal nature of Moana Cove. We have a mooring for your boat. Please let us know.

Have a look at kawawisland org. A very informative website If you would like to know more about the Island. Also look on 'You Tube', at "Briars suprise birthday trip to Kawau Island'. Thanks to Matt and Briar.

Once there, you are virtually in another time and place. There are walking tracks up to the ridge behind the house, then along the ridge to Vivian Bay and beyond.

Just feel and soak up the peace and the quiet, and completely forget about whatever it was that bothered you in Auckland. Listen to the sound of the tui's, wood pigeons, weka's, seagulls, and the odd distant call of the kookaburras. Feed the sprats off the balcony at high tide, and watch the stingrays glide up the cove and back with the ebb and flow of the tide.

Special conditions: No smoking inside. Outside tolerated, but please be careful. Fire is our biggest danger. Total respect for our neighbours at all times! Please leave the place as you would expect to find it. We have attempted to price the offering on a 'guest clean up basis' to eliminate any cleaning fees for the stay Please do not use any of the other jetty's on the Island, (except in emergencies). They are all privately owned, and respect for this fact, is valued and appreciated.

  • Stunning location and pretty, cosy bach with everything we needed

    Stunning location and pretty, cosy bach with everything we needed. My husband and I went in July but were lucky with sunny weather and mill-pond calm water. We didn't take fishing gear but I would if we returned!
