  • Expansive views of Kawau Bay, 5 minutes walk to the beach great for families with younger children
  • Fully separate homestay upstairs living, large fenced flat section, large deck
  • Great launching pad for a great number of day trips: Leigh, Pakari, Tawharanui, Kawau Island.

Section contained for SMALL DOGS (discuss and at my agreement).

Protected, safe beach perfect for children.

Walk the sculpture trail at Brick Bay Vineyard, just 5 minutes away, or just enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine with a platter. Take in the view at Mahurangi Wines, or drive to Charlies Ice Cream shop on the way to Matakana.

There are many nearby places to launch a boat for a day of fishing or water sports, or take the ferry from Sandpit to Kawau. You can park and clean up the boat here.

Or simply take my kids canoe out or my river boat, and old fashioned 4m rowing boat that can easily take 2 on a bay adventure. Even fish from it!

Explore the local regional parks and beautiful beaches like Pakiri, snorkel at Goat Island, surf at Omaha Beach or Tawharanui, play golf at Warkworth or Omaha, or kayak or sail in Kawau Bay or the Mahurangi River.

Special conditions: Little dogs are welcome. No parties. Smoking outside only please. Suggest bring your own duvet and pillow and you may get a better nights sleep. Sheets and pillow cases available at extra charge. $30 per bed per night.
