About this Holiday House

A wonderful summer and winter retreat. There are no roads, cars or shops on Kawau so this is truly a place to get away from it all to relax and unwind. Only 1 hour 30 mins from Auckland to Sandspit and then 30 minutes by ferry or water-taxi to the island which drops you off on a wharf right in front of the house. Alternatively you can launch your own boat from Sandspit. The house is perched behind a large pohutukawa in a quiet and peaceful location directly above the water. It is very comfortable, with 3 bedrooms sleeping 7 and has full white-ware and entertainment amenities. Relax on the large deck at treetop level and watch the boats go by, listen to the birds, fish or swim from the wharf, kayaks are available, clay tennis court and walks to enjoy. Plenty of grounds for children to play and explore. Relax by the fire during winter. Use of the wharf and mooring. You can arrange to catch the ferry or water taxi to Mansion House or other parts of the island. A full information manual is supplied regarding getting to Kawau Island and use of the house.

Heidi
A beautiful place that made a wonderful winter retreat. The cozy lounge and fireplace was the perfect place to sit and admire the sea view! We will be back in the summer to experience it all again.
Louisa
What a spot! The kayaks are awesome, allowing you to explore the bay and surrounds. Lots of lifejackets available so all sizes of the family catered for. Cozy sitting room is the perfect spot to retreat to after a busy day jumping off the wharf or catching snapper and if the weather turns then the fireplace warms the whole house. We had an absolute blast and look forward to returning.
Response from Owner
Hi Louisa, I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed yourselves and thank you for your review. You are welcome back anytime and I can confidently recommend you to other holiday-home renters. All the best.

Great place and great location. We used the mooring which held our boat just fine. The house has everything and we will be back.
