Enjoy a sandy, safe and tidal beach just 80 metres across the grass. Front row position. Lovely sea and 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.

  • Another lovely holiday at this clean, tidy and wonderfully located bach

    Another lovely holiday at this clean, tidy and wonderfully located bach. We love looking out at the pohutukawa trees to the beach and kayaking in the safe Campbell's beach waters. The recent addition of the extra railing on the back deck and handrail down the steps made life much easier for our youngest child. Thank you so much for sharing your bach with us again.
