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!

  • A modern, clean and comfortable property

    A modern, clean and comfortable property. Great views and facilities, and bonus golf buggy to use to trip around South Cove. Conveniently located to walks, fishing spots and wharf. Would definitely recommend.

  • Beautiful house with fantastic views

    Beautiful house with fantastic views. Well stocked with essential items, which helped with the food packing. Single beds not very comfy - too small for adults and the foam mattresses were not great. Wood burner was lovely and warmed the lounge up. No other heating provided however, which meant chilly times in between.

  • Everything that it purports to be

    Everything that it purports to be. Fantastic location. Very modern, clean, spacious and well appointed. Views forever. Kiwi calls at night and cheeky wekas by day. The perfect retreat to get away from it all.
