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.

  • A really immaculate home, handy to beach and shops

    A really immaculate home, handy to beach and shops. Very comfortable with a large terrace upstairs and BBQ area with seating at back.

    The location is very near the beach in a nice area. A very spacious house ideal for families. Good parking for 2-3 vehicles. Good value for money.

    Property was very clean and tidy and had all conveniences handy Disappointed that the BBQ out the back was not set up. Would suggest maybe some more draws be made available to unpack clothes into.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The BBQ is not listed in our amenity's it was withdrawn eight months ago because several guests used it and failed to clean it. you could also have asked to have the BBQ set up, you were invited to let us know if there was anything else you needed. More drawers ? there are twelve drawers shared between two bedrooms most people that have to carry bags make them as light as possible and only pack what they need, there are also two large wardrobes.
