Snells Beach

Is a very popular beach for families and children, with long surfaced walkways where children can cycle, skoot or skate. There are also several playground areas for the children.

Bookings taken for 4 adults & 4 children max.

The beach is very safe and early in the morning you can catch up with the local knowledge/gossip whilst you are out walking, also the village shopping centre is only 1 kilometre away and two medical centres are nearby.

Sandspit which is a six kilometre drive away has the local camping ground and the anticipation of a reasonable sized Marina. From Sandspit you can catch the ferry to Kawau Island for a great day out or if you have your own boat, a trip over to Bon Accord Harbour for a safe anchorage and a relaxing day out. There you will find Mansion House and a great little cafe for refreshments. Kawau Bay is a great boating and fishing area with the possibility of a local boat hire at Mahurangi marine Ltd. Other islands close by include Motuora-Moturekareka-Motuketekete and all of these also have safe anchorages.

There are plenty of boat ramps in the area four locally at Snells Beach and Algies Bay and if you require a jetty then you could use Sandspit or Omaha ramps.

The popular village of Matakana which is a ten kilometre drive with it's Saturday family market, and Warkworth eight kilometres which has a fortnightly market as well as New World and Countdown Supermarkets. Auckland is barely 45 minutes drive.

  • Good location near the beach and walkways

    Good location near the beach and walkways. Very clean when we arrived. Very large kitchen and good sized lounge. Good mood lighting, but not so good if you are wanting to see what you are doing. No wifi.

    Owner/manager responds:

    WiFi is not listed in our amenities because we have no phone line most guests come to our property for a holiday. Not to play games on devices.

    Excellent location in a delightful area. Unfortunately the weather was not brilliant but we would love to stay there again when we go back to the area.

  • The property was clean and well maintained

    The property was clean and well maintained. It was very comfortable but we just found the bedroom downstairs a bit hot and airless even with the windows open but to be fair it was February.
