About this Holiday House

The house is situated in a sunny north facing sheltered spot with stunning views. It looks over lovely tranquil bush with spectacular views from the large deck over the water, into Bon Accord Harbour and back toward Sandspit. It is a very spacious comfortable house and also very quiet and peaceful. Suitable for families with children or couples and friends who want to get away and relax or alternately have a more action packed holiday with fishing, diving, walking, swimming, kayaking and much more. Kayaks are available and very quick access to 2 beautiful safe bays which are great for swimming and fishing. The house and island provide for a truly unique holiday. Only 15- 20 minutes walk from Historical Mansion House and the cafe. There are loads of lovely walks to suit everyone. One of the main experiences of the house is the kitchen which opens out fully onto the large deck for a wonderful BBQ/ dining experience. Later on in the evening when you are looking at the stars you may be lucky enough to see phosphorescence in the water as it hits the beach.As one of our focuses when we built the house was to be immersed in nature and to be eco friendly, the power source is solar and gas, and there is no TV. It is accessible from Sandspit by water taxi or ferry to Schoolhouse bay. Then transport is provided to the house.

An amazing place to stay! Loved the kayaking, fishing and scenic bush walks with lots of wildlife. Also a beautiful holiday home with a stunning view, especially from the outdoor bath. Highly recommend getting away from the city life and enjoying the tranquility this place has to offer.

wow! this place is amazing - thank you so much for sharing it. We had the best time and the house was perfect for our families. The views are breathtaking. Thanks also to the local transport service - they were great at delivering ALL our stuff. We would love to come and stay again.

Hi Megan and Andy We are glad that you had a wonderful time and hope you get to stay again.
If you are wanting to get away from it all, this is the place to go. I have stayed here more than 5 times and it never gets old. There is a lot to do and see on Kawau, but it’s up to you whether you want to do one of the walks to the historic places on the island, go for a swim, or to just relax on the deck with breathtaking views, reading that book you have been wanting to read for so long but never had time to get around to. Regardless if it is sunshine or rain, the house is warm and cozy. It has all the utilities you need, and a brilliant fireplace. The locals are super friendly, I have met about 5 of the people who live permanently on the island and they are all passionate about the history and preservation of the island. There are a few downsides that have to be mentioned. Time will go too fast and you won’t want to come back to reality on mainland New Zealand ;-) Kawau is my happy place and I always have a blast, except when the time abruptly finishes and I have to hop back on the ferry and leave the magical world behind.

Thanks so much for your lovely comment. It is always nice to know that others have a great time when they stay at our place on Kawau. It is a magical place.
