Places to stay in Mahurangi East
Kereru Studio is a comfortable space for a couple or person wishing to 'escape' for a period of tranquillity. The tidal Te Kapa inlet is at the bottom of the lawn directly in front of the studio for swimming or kayaking. Guests are welcome to use the outdoor spa and kayaks. There is a veranda and outdoor courtyard beside the studio exclusively for guest use. Off street parking is available and our living area is off limits. Because we live on the site there is every chance we will be present when guests are staying. Interaction would be limited to anything we can do to ensure our guests stay meets their expectations. Mahurangi East is a peninsular which leads down to Scott's Landing. It has a lot of walks, lovely views, bush areas and native birds. In the area there are regional parks, ocean beaches, cafes, vineyards and restaurants. About 20 minutes drive away is the popular Matakana village with markets and cinemas. You are spoilt for choice in the region depending on what sort of break you want to have. You would need to have your own transport to enjoy your stay. Off street parking is available. We will provide travel directions and a list of local attractions which may interest you. For tranquillity we do not have a television in the studio but wifi access is available. The kitchenette has a microwave, toaster and tea/coffee making. All linen is supplied there is no cleaning fee.
  • Heather and Allan are such hospitable hosts. The studio is a little slice of paradise - we loved taking the kayaks out and going for swims! We had the best little getaway in our two nights here and would definitely book again.

  • Very relaxing location, exactly as described in the advert. Hosts were very helpful but also left me to myself so felt very private. Would definitely recommend for a single traveller or couple looking to explore the area.

    Felicity2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here, it was peaceful and relaxing. We took cayaks out on the water and had a great time exploring some wonderful bays and beaches. We would recommend this place to anyone seeking a quiet and comfortable getaway.

  • Perfect getaway for some relaxation. Just what we needed. Georgeous location. We used the Kajaks on our first evening. Room was very clean and bed just soooo comfy. Heather and Allen are very friendly and great hosts. It was really nice chatting with them.

    Snells Beach, Auckland, New Zealand

    Enjoy the tranquility of our home which overlooks Snells Beach, but is off the road in a quiet neighbourhood. We are 72 steps from the beach and within walking distance of the Highfield Reserve which overlooks the stunning Kawau Bay. Our sunny, yet secluded deck is a great place to enjoy sundowners and relax. The new bus service to Warkworth, Hibiscus Coast and Auckland runs from the top of our street.
    Guests are welcome to use our kitchen for cooking, eat at our dinner table and relax in our lounge or out on our deck.
    We have a friendly, quiet neighbourhood with a mixture of retirees and young families. You can access the beach from our home, as well as the Highfield donkey reserve at the top of our road. We are close many beautiful beaches: Martin's Bay, Scotts Landing, Algies Bay and Snells Beach. We are also close to Scandretts Regional Park and a short 15 minute drive to Matakana and Warkworth.
  • Nice spot. Easy acess to beach and coastal walk. Great outside covered porch area. Very pleasant hosts. Would use again.

    Philip2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • While off the beaten track, that's exactly what holds so much charm for West Wing - the remoteness yet only 15 mins from Matakana, with views that are outstanding. Sandy & Tony are so friendly and helpful. Attached via a garage still private from the main house. The wing is "old school" in decor, adding to the charm with a huge bathroom & shower. The self cook / prep breakfast was lovely touch. I'm ready to go back!

    Welcome to Snells Beach. From the apartment you can look down the driveway to the sea. It is a safe swimming beach and also great for walking when the tide is out. Nearby are good cafes, takeaways and restaurants. Snells Beach is a short drive from Matakana, Scandretts and Tawharanui Regional Parks. There are excellent wineries in the region also.
  • Fantastic BNB right on the beach. Quiet and comfortable and Heather so welcoming. Loved the added touches of tomato sauce and lemon for fish and chips. We will definitely be back. Thanks again Heather.

    JuliePorter2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place for a quick getaway from your busy everyday lives. Perfectly located right in front of the beach. Easy check in and check out process. Very clean, quiet and private. Host is quick to response and is very friendly. Highly recommended!

  • Lovely wee apartment, very fresh and clean . Thoroughly enjoyed Heather popping in and saying hi each day.

    Jacquie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • An awesome place located below the main house that has everything you need for a nice little visit! It is up a driveway that looks directly down at Snells Beach. There is a little set of shops just up the hill or it’s 10mins drive from Matakana Town that has heaps of awesome shops and restaurants. There are lots of other pretty beaches within driving distance too :-) Heather was just the sweetest! She popped her head over the balcony to welcome us and make sure we didn’t need anything else for our stay, was very generous with some much needed tomato sauce when I put in a special request but then left us to enjoy the VERY peaceful stay! Highly recommend Heather and her place with the comfy bed too :-)

    Brianna2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Super excellent place to stay. It's in a wonderful location and right on the water. Only stayed for a single night, but totally lovely and welcoming.

  • Robyn greeted me on arrival and fair welled on leaving . Her house has a wonderful location perched high up on a private road . A highlight was waking up to the sound of the forest birds singing

  • We enjoyed our stay here, it is a nice and peaceful place with beaches and winerys nearby. Recommend to others

    Lana2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Kauri treetops is an incredible place for a quiet retreat. The location is so picturesque, and we really missed the view as soon as we left! We comfortably fitted a portacot in the room, and had plenty of space on the decks outside. Robyn was an outstanding host- very prompt and friendly replies, and really helpful with our needs. Many attractions in the area were just a short drive away. Note the driveway is a bit tricky at first- especially for cars with lower profiles, but we quickly got used to this. Highly recommend Robyn's place.

There is also a laundry that can be used whenever required. The house overlooks Waiwera pools and receives all day sun. All furnishings are modern and new making it a very comfortable place to relax. The house is located downstairs of a two story house. There is a three bedroom unit sleeping 6 people available upstairs if required.
    This is a great location to relax, being only 200 metres to the beach and 30 minutes from Auckland CBD. Waiwera is a great little community with a dairy for your basic needs and ice creams!!! only a short walk away and bar and cafe also just down the road. Wenderholm Regional Park and its beautiful beaches are only a few minutes drive away as are the bars and cafes in Orewa.
  • Great Value for your money, Perfect location. Highly recommend you stay here, child friendly 🙂

    Benni2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and extremely good value with easy communication. Just a short walk to a great and safe beach. Quite a lot of noise from first floor apartment but that was expected after reading previous reviews.

    Adam2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The flat has everything needed for a great stay. Well equipped kitchen and modern throughout. The bedroom is oversized, we were able to fit our daughters cot in the room comfortably. The bed was very comfortable. The only downside is the noise from the upstairs unit, footsteps and talking is easily heard. Waiwera beach was very quite, most days having the whole beach to ourselves which was awesome! The water is very safe, flat no waves so great for little ones and only 2 mins walk from the flat. Communication with the owners was very fast, no problems there. Overall I think this is really great value for money, I hope we can come back for another trip soon. 😊

  • Fantastic!

    Cherry2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Clean & comfortable. Great location for travelling around to beaches & regional parks on north east & north west coast of the North island. Easy to get bus into Auckland. 2 min walk to Waiwera beach. Really enjoyed our stay there.

    Karen2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • A very quiet location and so close to the beach. The unit was very clean and comfortable a great getaway spot.

    Tina2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • We spent an incredible few months at Shanon's place and it has been one of the highlights of our time in New Zealand. Waiwera is stunning, the beach is amazing and about a three minute walk away from the home. Wenderholm Regional Park is a 10 minute walk away and has some beautiful trails with easy and moderate hikes. If you stay here I'd recommend getting up early to enjoy the unreal sunrises at the beach and checking out the Sunday market in Orewa. There are frequent buses between Waiwera and Orewa (larger town with grocery stores, cheap 10 minute ride away). The home has fast wifi and nice amenities, Shanon was fast to respond to any messages we sent, good communication. This place is perfect, we're missing it already!

    Katie2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay. All the facilities you need, clean and well maintained, lovely beaches nearby, great value.

There are tranquil views of a native bush back drop and plentiful bird life. It is a short walk to the beach.
    Algies Bay is a lovely little bay with good walks, safe swimming, great for kayaks or sup.
  • Jen's place is stylish & clean. Very peaceful & relaxing. Highly recommend.

    Linda2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Very neat and tidy in a quiet location. Easy place to check out surrounding area from. Jen was very easy to communicate with, instructions were perfect.

    Jack2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jen's place is just as it is described - it's clean, well set up and located a short walk from Algies Bay. The unit is in the basement of a house and looks out on a lovely grassy area with trees. I booked it on behalf of some friends who were visiting from overseas so i am unable to comment in detail.

    Stana2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Jens place was beautiful and clean with fun touches! We would definitely return for a nice quiet weekend at the beach

    Michael And Carla2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Although technically attached to the house, we felt totally separate and private. Great communication from owner. A smooth operation. Thanks

    Daisy2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice studio and very clean. It's a little out of the way, but thanks to Jen’s good description it’s easy to find. Easy check-in, unfortunately we didn't see Jen.

    Elisabeth2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a lovely apartment to stay in on a weekend away! It was really comfortable and clean. Arriving quite latest night to the outside light on and a little bottle of milk in the fridge for tea and coffee made for a very warm welcome! Thank you Jen, we had a great stay :)

    Esther2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

    Algies Bay, Auckland, New Zealand

    Our place is just a few streets up from the beach. Our neighbourhood is friendly and generally quiet, although naturally busier on key holiday weekend, and we are located close to the many stunning beaches in our area. Our place is good for individuals or couples, with space for an extra portable camp bed if needed.
    We invite you to stay with us in your own fully self contained flat, downstairs from our family home. The flat is directly underneath our living area, so there is some transfer of noise - you will hear our footsteps at certain times of the day, although we are careful and our guests tell us it’s generally quiet - we are a family however! We use only natural products such as ‘Eco Store’ and ‘Only Good’ for cleaning and washing. Our bedding is natural products such as cotton, feather, or wool. So come and breathe easy! We are 5 mins walk to the local shops one way, and the lovely Snells Beach the other. 10 mins drive to Martin's Bay, 10 mins to Matakana and it's fabulous markets.
    Snells Beach shopping centre is 5 or so mins walk away. With the Warehouse, local cafes, takeaways, fruit and veg shop, fish and dive shop and a Superette. Our immediate neighbourhood is generally quiet and peaceful....although like most beach locations, comes alive over the key holidays in summer.
  • We loved our stay here. Short walk to the beach, and to the shops down the road. I'm usually very sensitive to dust - this place was very clean, lovely linen bedding, and comfortable bed. We love Snells Beach, would definitely stay here again!

    Ashleigh2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely space with everything you need for a good escape from the city. Super comfy bed and lovely linen too. Well stocked kitchen and good space to move around in. We also loved being able to have a dip in the pool to cool off.

    Joy2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for accommodating us at the last minute :)

    Elodie2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • This unit is a tidy, clean studio apartment in a quiet area. The induction plate and microwave/oven work well, there is a big full frig and there are all the utensils you will need. We would definitely stay again. It is handy to the beach and Snells Beach is a good central location to activities in the area.

    Alma Joyce2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Dedge's flat was cosy, clean and comfortable. Communication with Dedge was excellent and she went to a lot of effort to ensure that our stay was problematic free. Nice area and close to shops and amenities.

    Tim2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Such a delightful and very thoughtfully decorated place .The setting is beautiful with a sense of countryside but very near the sea. Hospitality was tops as well with thoughtful touches of flowers and chocolates to feast on and lively conversation . Thoroughly enjoyed my stay ....you will too!!!!!

    Sherry2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is not your average kiwi sleepout but a new high quality room and bathroom in a very quiet location yet close by to the local attractions. Highly recommend for a few days getaway from the city. Take a rug and wine to Scott’s Landing and watch the sunset. Lunch at the local wineries. Surf at the local beaches. No cook hob in the room but who wants to cook when getting away from it all. Enough to make breakfast and snacks. Awesome place

    Adrian2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Honestly such a lovely place to stay. From all the little touches like flowers by the bed to being such friendly and welcoming host. Defintley would visit again!

    Emily2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Wendy's place is a calm and tranquil retreat. It is high quality accommodation with a really stylish decor. The extra touches are so thoughtful, from dishes cleaned to Christmas Day chocolates you can't ask for more from your hosts.

    Elisabeth2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing, peaceful location and a great space to stay in. Highly recommend!

    Ruby2019-12-08T00:00:00Z

  • The freshly baked loaf of bread on arrival was an omen of things to come! We had a lovely stay with Ren. Place was impeccably clean, fridge full of home-made jam (and he even messaged ahead to check what milk we like), the outside area was wonderful to sit in. Excellent garden, and a five minute walk down the hill to the beach. Would absolutely stay again if we’re back in the area. Many thanks!

    Amy2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Ren offers such a clean space, a great garden and he baked us a bread when we arrived. So lovely anf heute place is so close to beautiful beaches. Great area!

    Anika2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Ren was so accommodating to us and waited for us to show us in although we were later than expected arriving. The garden for guests was just beautiful and I had the best sleep! Fresh bread and breakfast cereal was a lovely touch. Spotlessly clean and so much More room than expected. Would stay again to see the beautiful beaches down the road.

    Amy2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with everything we needed and more - freshly baked bread and homemade jam - Ren made us feel very welcome. Very clean, everything looked fresh and new, and had comfortable beds. Garden is lovely and filled with beautiful colored lights at night which made it look magical. Would happily stay there again.

    Lena2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

  • Absolutely beautiful and comfortable home that is perfect for a quick getaway. We loved the deck with its surrounding forest and comfy seating. Feels like you are completely off the grid, even though it's a perfect location so close to Brick Bay, and only a short drive into Matakana village! Just adored it. Will stay again soon!

    Coen2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    Snells Beach, Auckland, New Zealand

    A 'bach' is a kiwi word used to describe a simple but special holiday place. Little bach is our little slice of paradise in Snells Beach. We have everything you need to have a restful and romantic holiday break.
    Snells Beach is a small community with a beautiful tidal beach (5 min walk) that is perfect for swimming (at high tide!), exploring, walking and unwinding. There is a small shopping center (5 min walk) complete with beauty therapy rooms (lovely massages/mani/pedis etc), excellent hair dressers, grocery store, two cafes/restaurants, pub and The Warehouse. I have lived permanently in Snells Beach for two years and love showing people all the things I love about this magical part of Auckland. Within 15 min drive you can reach multiple beaches all with unique features - beautiful Omaha for surfing, Martin's for rock pooling and safe swimming, Goat Island for snorkeling. Matakana Market is only a 10 minute drive away with its amazing assortment of local produce, products and treats. I can also recommend many great Winerys, cafes and tourist attractions. I will prepare you a delicious breakfast every morning using local produce whenever possible.
    Winerys, cafes, markets, farm parks, walks, beaches, people!
  • Caroline’s little granny flat was so perfect for us. Extremely clean, beautiful, comfy and the breakfast was awesome!! We loved our stay and she also gave us great tips of where to go in the area. If I had to criticise one thing, it would just be the wifi connection was minimal. We wanted to disconnect from our phones though so we didn’t have an issue with it :)

    Mike2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • We had a very pleasant stay at Shanon’s place. Waiwera is a quiet small town with a beautiful bay. It’s a quick drive from Orewa, where you can find lots of shops and restaurants. The apartment is clean and spacious. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking with pots, pans, functional knives (!) and lots of dishes. Parking is conveniently located right in front of the house. The beach is a short walk away, a perfect place to see sunrise! We also enjoyed the cedar tub in the backyard. Overall this is a great value for the area! High recommend!

    From the moment you walk in, the view will captivate you and you will never want to leave. We have the best of the environment on our doorstep: a water playground where you can fish, paddle, kayak, sup and swim. There is a private bay and jetty at the bottom of our garden, a beach at Scotts Landing, oyster farms on our doorstep, beautiful day walks and vineyards close by. Or one can choose to do nothing: just relax on the decks and watch the boats and weather go by and listen to the birds.
    Guests will have full access to the house, the barbeque area, and the kayak. Other amenities include Wifi, nespresso coffee machine, dishwasher, all bedrooms have ceiling fans installed. A parking bay for a boat. We also provide all Linen and toiletries. Stays of over 7 days during off peak season will be offered a discount, please enquire for the special offer. The house is built in the tree tops built around a dramatic, 200 year old Pohutukawa tree. Every room has THE VIEW (and that is all you will focus on during your visit!). Newly renovated, bright, open and airy, you will spend your days with the doors open being immersed in the environment even if you decide not to leave. There are 4 bedrooms (1 king, 2 queens and 2 twin beds) with fresh cotton linen provided. 2 bathrooms with Forest and Bird toiletries. The brand new open plan kitchen is well equipped for dinner parties.

Take a boat ride on the bay to immerse yourself in the experience at The Shuckleferry Fishing: It is literally on our doorstep.

  • What a stunning view and location! Loved the house - the place was spotless and presented immaculately. Easy open plan living. Linen in bedrooms was like a hotel. We swam every day at the beach, did the Shuckleberry Oyster tour and ate our weight in oysters. Nice morning walks. The view is truly breathtaking, The sunsets were beautiful. We just sat and watched. Easy check in process. Great host - thank you Jenny! (Including organizing the weather!!)

    Tija2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect getaway to relax. The house has great amenities and plenty to do in the region. Breath taking views and lovely decor

  • I could not recommend this place more highly! The home is absolutely stunning (pictures don’t do it justice)! There were also thoughtful little touches like homemade jam and recommendations for walks and beaches. Each bedroom has an amazing view and a comfy bed too! Stay here if you’re looking to unwind in a beautiful spot 🙂

    Erika2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect to encapsulate everything good I remembered about NZ in the summer time. The ever changing view, the soft breeze of the water, sheltered swimming beach, friendly people and plethora of birdlife. Totally private and peaceful house and surrounds with not one bit of traffic or human noise. The welcome tray of local artisan treats was a lovely touch.

  • This is a great little place with a nice ocean view. Palle who lives upstairs (not the owner) was extremely helpful and friendly. Everything is convenient inside and Snells Beach has a lovely, calm waterfront you will enjoy. Note: you do have to be a bit organized getting in provisions as there is no store in Snells Beach.

    Elizabeth2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

  • My favorite Airbnb I’ve stayed at so far! Helen and Willem’s hospitality is unmatched... they are so genuinely nice, helpful, and they can cook an amazing breakfast spread. The place is well decorated, has comfortable beds, and is in an area that is peaceful with great views. Can’t recommend this place enough!

    Kendra2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Helen and Willem are amazing hosts with plenty of local knowledge. The space is beautiful, private and quiet. The breakfast each morning was delicious and more than we could have expected. The friendly dogs and country views were a bonus. Will be back.

    Corey2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing spot! Only 1 hour out of Auckland and very close to lovely Matakana. Helen and Willem were lovely hosts. A home cooked breakfast every morning looking out over the property.

    Joel2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time staying at Helen and Willem's place. The hosts were so thoughtful and offered to show our daughter different things with the horses that are on the property, as well as happy for us to wonder around looking at all the animals that we could see on their property and neighbouring properties. There are a number of places to visit near by so we were on the road during the day and relaxing at the accommodation at night. The breakfast offered daily was very nice, a big variety of food and lots of it. We would highly recommend the home for everyone.

  • This is my second stay at Lesli's place and I cannot recommend it enough. Lesli and her husband are lovely and the accommodation is perfect for exploring Warkworth, Matakana etc. The bed is really comfortable and the shower is excellent. It is a really nice, light space and very clean. The garden is also lovely to sit out in for breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. My husband and I were sad to leave and are hoping to fit in another stay before we go back to the UK in April.

    Welcome to Mahurangi magic. This nearly new home is set perfectly to the stunning views of the Mahurangi harbour. Flooded in sunshine. Perfect for families. Designer kitchen with beautiful home decor. Your home away from home. NB it says it has a hot tub but doesn’t! Have no idea why it says this as haven’t ticked it! 🤷‍♀️
    The two main bedrooms open onto the house length deck via sliding doors, making waking up idyllic. The whole front of the house opens up onto the deck allowing for beautiful meals watching the sun set over the hills. The house is perfect for children with swings and a trampoline not to mention bush walks and beaches at your doorstep!
    Scott’s Landing beach. Bush walks. Martins Bay. Scandretts park. Matakana. Tawharanui.
  • Spectacular! Jessica’s house was the cleanest we’ve ever rented in New Zealand. Plus, she included everything for guests coming from overseas that most hosts don’t: loo paper, dishwashing tablets, soap, insect repellant, towels and linen. Even an espresso maker! And when I couldn’t figure out how to work it, she drove to the house with another one. The views here are second to none. The location is quiet: a perfect spot for reading and sipping a class of wine. I loved walking through native forest to small private swimming beaches. The kitchen is well fitted out for cooks. Jessica’s design flare is evident in every room. We felt as if we were staying in a luxury hotel. We hope to return!

    Peter2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

  • An amazing place with set on a secluded and tucked away piece of land. Coming from Auckland it was great to have a quite place with everything we needed to have a super relaxing time. John and Janet we extremely hospitable and recommended a few good places to eat. Would highly recommend staying with them if you are lucky enough to secure the spot. Good location for getting to Warkworth or Matakana.

    Vernon2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • At John and Janet’s you’ll experience top hospitality. We shared wonderful conversations the evening of our arrival and a lovely breakfast with them in the morning. I highly recommend their place for a relaxing, comfortable stay at a home away from home.

    Samantha2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with John and Janet. Although small, the room was as expected and, as we spent most of our time with family in the nearby holiday park, we found the accommodation excellent value for money. We rate our stays on the comfort of the bed, the provided linens and shower experience ..... all exceeded expectations. Our only disappointment was the instant coffee .... as we are from Canada we are not fans of instant coffee. We found John and Janet to be very friendly and gracious hosts, and we would thoroughly recommend their home!

    Lynne2020-01-07T00:00:00Z

    The views of Kawau Bay from the deck at The Cottage, make this is the perfect location to unwind and soak up the stunning scenery. With two bedrooms; one master and another with bunks for the kids, you can bring the whole family - there is even the use of a highchair if you need it for the little ones. With the option of either the well-appointed kitchen or BBQ on the deck for dinner, you'll be well setup to show off your cooking prowess. The open plan layout means there is enough room for everyone to chill out together and the recent renovation ensures a touch of modern comfort throughout. Head into town just a short drive away and grab a bite at one of the local cafés. And when exploring is on the cards, the region is bursting with options that are suitable for the whole family. If it’s a couples escape you’re after, the Matakana wine region is right on your doorstep. If you’re looking for the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle and recharge – The Cottage will tick all your boxes!
    This is spacious 2 bedroom property. Please note, the bedding configuration for this property includes a Single Bed, a Single Bunk Bed in Bedroom 1 and a Queen Bed in Bedroom 2.
  • The Cottage is in a small crescent of houses that overlooks Snells Beach. It takes about 3 mins to drive to the local shops or 7 min walk along the main road. There is a 5 min walk to the beach through the next road of houses. It is a steep walk back up, so not great for those with mobility problems. The bach is well equipped with everything you'd need for staying for a few days. It is a good size for a family of 4. There was only myself and my husband and we enjoyed the space. The views are stunning from the deck and main bedroom. It is a quiet area. There is a very steep driveway from the road and you need to be careful to park on the flat with the handbrake on! There are loads of things to do around Snells Beach area - Sculpture Trail at Brick Bay Vinery, Algies Bay for boating, Goat Island is 1 hour away, eating out in Matakana, shopping in Warkworth. You will need a car. We loved The Cottage and if we return, we will book again!

  • Anna and Brian are the most hospitable and friendly hosts one could possibly imagine. We had a great time in their property, which is in an excellent location to hang out for an extended period because it is convenient to many things - parks, interesting towns, Auckland and shopping. The photos do not do justice to the appeal of the location, which is high on a ridge with lovely views. We would definitely return and recommend this to our friends. Thank you again Anna and Brian!

  • Anna & Brian are the greatest hosts ever. Both took time to greet my wife and I. Their place is amazing. All amenities a good hotel has are readily available at Anna & Brian’s place. 👌🏻

  • The place is absolutely amazing. Anna&Brian are by far the best hosts we had during our travels. The scenery is beautiful, the house was very clean and welcoming, and of course the pool is incredible.

    Mahurangi West, Auckland, New Zealand

    Kawau Bay Vista is a 3 bedroom, North Facing one story house with an ocean view from the deck. It's 300 metres from Snells Beach Domain and close to the shopping centre and local pub "The Salty Dog". Travel time from Auckland Airport is about 90 minutes by car in normal traffic off State Highway 1 at Warkworth. The view takes in most of Kawau Island with Great Barrier Island on the horizon past Tawharanui Peninsular.
    The house was relocated to the section 11 years ago and completely renovated as a holiday home for families and guests to stay and relax. The deck was added 2 years later and to date we have hosted fishing expeditions, yachting regattas, wedding parties, family reunions, student study retreats, and international tourists as well as Kiwi summer vacationers and weekenders just getting away for break. There's plenty to see and do ...or not!!! You can walk to the beach in 3 minutes, or the local pub and a very good shopping centre with great food outlets in 1 minute. Other nearby attractions include the local vineyards, fine dining restaurants, the weekend country markets, Morris &James pottery factory, the Donkey Park, the Tawharanui Wild life sanctuary, Surf Beaches, and Goat Island Marine reserve. The local dive shop has kayak and SUP hire available. Snells Beach is tidal over warm sand so is a very safe for children to play, swim and paddle.
    Ariki Drive is a seaside residential suburb so the neighbours are very close and need to be respected. There is a neighbourhood watch group in place and we are friends with all of them. They certainly watch out for us.
  • Amazing location and easy check in.

  • This house is in a great location - a few minutes walk from the local shops and pub. Loved sitting out on the deck in the morning for breakfast or the evening for drinks. Was the perfect place for us for a weekend getaway and a great base to explore the beaches, Matakana market, Charlies Ice Cream etc. The house is light and bright and well maintained and had everything we needed. Thanks Bill - we would stay again for sure.
