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.

    A great property which suited our family of 4 perfectly. Great location and very quiet street, easy access to walk to shops and beach. Highly recommend!

  • The bach was top notch

    The bach was top notch. Very clean, lots of space and a stunning view out east to the harbour - woke up with the sunrise instead of an alarm! A shame we were only there overnight after a wedding as we would have loved to have enjoyed the place a bit longer!

    We were very happy to find this place still available for a two day break. The flat was very clean and had everything needed. Two bedrooms were handy so the kids could go to bed early. Close to shops and a great location to explore the regional parks, local beaches and the Parry Kauri Walk and museum close by. Would come back or recommend the place anytime.

    very pleasant home at the end of a cul de sac, with a lovely outlook to the coast and Kawau Island. The house is well equipped and made for easy living, would recommend.
