  • Beach front position; 80 metres across the grass to high tide and nice sea views from dining table
  • 2 free kayaks with fun paddling in a sheltered bay. Life jackets supplied (child's life jacket too)
  • 7 minutes drive to Matakana. Newly renovated, brand new kitchen & dishwasher, cosy and warm.

Enjoy a sandy, safe & tidal beach just 80 metres across the grass. Front row position. Lovely sea & summer sunset views from the dining table. Seaside children's playground is close by.

There are some really nice and safe paddles within the bay, up two mangrove creeks as well as around the coast.

A little under an hour north of Auckland, Campbells makes for a great escape place.

By car, Matakana is 7 minutes, Tawharanui Regional Park and Sandspit both 15 minutes and Warkworth suipermarket 20 minutes.

Listen to the gulls, bellbirds and tuis in the day time, kookaburras (true) at dawn and dusk and an owl at night time.

    Great place to take a ‘pause from life’, wonderful setting, well maintained with everything that we needed and plenty of activities and areas of interest close by. An idyllic piece of Kiwi paradise in true Bach style.

  • Wonderful property and location for our family holiday

    Wonderful property and location for our family holiday. The only downside if you have young children is the deck/property is not fenced.

    Awesome Bach - across the road from the beach and a children’s playground. Bach is clean with everything you need and the kayaks are an absolute bonus. We’ll definitely be back.
