  • 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.

  • An amazing location, we had an aweseome time

    An amazing location, we had an aweseome time. Even when it rained we could still sit and look out at the beautiful view. Already trying to work out when we can next visit.

  • It's a lovely location overlooking the bay

    It's a lovely location overlooking the bay.The mandarin fruit from the tree in the garden was delicious. Sports crazy men in the family loved having the sky. The bach is on a small scale but well equiped.No wardrobes. The negatives were minor and easily overcome. Rotten remains in 2 containers in the fridge left from previous tenant was easily biffed. The bach could have done with a bit of airing and the beds were a bit damp , but had we arrived earlier we could have put electric blankets on.
