Plenty of track walks, Mansion House is 1.5 hrs walk away...swimming, beach walks, bird watching, wallabies, wekas, peacocks, rosellas and even kiwis to see. Lots to explore and discover...and fish to catch!

A beautifully quiet place. No neighbours to be seen, great outlook, wonderful seaviews...you can almost feel you are the only one on the island...a totally relaxing place to be. Kawau Island is a unique place...if you haven't been before you are in for an experience....one of those very special places left in New Zealand, seemingly undiscovered!

  • The house has all the mod cons anyone would want

    The house has all the mod cons anyone would want. There are nice touches like a great BBQ and kayaks and outdoor furniture. Inside the house is quite modern and clean and tidy. We spent a day walking across to Mission house which if you get the tide right is quite easy. A nice day out!

    Kawau Hideaway is such a special property, a very modern and spacious home with stunning views. The house is so well equipped and Joan's attention to detail makes it a very relaxing stay. The island is very quiet and peaceful. We can not wait to stay again!

  • Joan's home is beautiful

    Joan's home is beautiful. It has everything needed to make a stay memorable; gorgeous views, a cosy fireplace, easy access to the water, kayaks available, and nearby walks. We loved our weekend here and hope to be back one day soon.

  • The house is great and in a lovely spot

    The house is great and in a lovely spot. The facilities, kitchen, bedrooms and living area were perfect for our family. Transport to and from the wharf was easy and fun and there are some beautiful walks from the house. There is a small boat at the beach, but is really only able to fit one person so we didn't take advantage of that. We did take advantage of the board games available and of the DVD library.
