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.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Lots of lovely walks to beaches and beautitful Historic Mansion House and coppermine. Easy walk to cafe at the Mansion House Reserve. Across the bay you can go for dinner at the yacht club or kayak over for fish and chips. A favourite past time for the kids is jumping off the wharves. Great fishing spots and mooring available frequently; otherwise there is a sheltered bay to anchor the boat. If you are into taking walks at night you can walk to the coppermine look out and see the sky tower glowing in the distance. Also look for the glow worms on the driveway. There are lots of native birds, tui, pigeons, weka and even kiwi and kookaburras.If you are lucky you may sight some dolphins or from labour weekend occasionaly orca. We have had them in our bay in the past. A great attraction for the kids are the wallabies which come out at dusk.

Thank you for our amazing stay. Beautiful views. You could sit and watch the native birds and boats come and go in the harbour all day. Great for the kids, they never got bored. We enjoyed kayaking around the harbour and to the boat club. House was clean. We would love to come back again 😊
Response from Owner
Hi Carla and Chris, We are so glad that you had a wonderful time. Kawau is a great place for adventure for kids and families, and soo safe for the kids kayaking in the harbour. You are most welcome to come back.

I cannot praise enough for Judith and her place. The house has a stunning view, very clean and also well - equipped. Judith is so easy to deal with as well. She is so sweet, kind, and supportive as same as the rest of her family. They made us feel so warm and welcomed. My family and I had a wonderful time here. If I will ever come back to visit Kawau, this is definitely a place of which I will think to stay first. Everything here feels "so at home" (CD players, board games, kayak, facilities to make your home cooking food, etc...). If you want to have your own enjoyable time away from hustle and bustle life, you should consider to come staying here. This home is worth every single $ you spend for it.

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.
