  • 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.
