Overview

Photos and Description of this Kawau Island holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to Paradise. Pohutukawa Cottage on Idilic Kawau Island, this is a real Kiwi Bach. Leave the car behind and enjoy a totally stress free holiday. Fish off the private wharf or bring your own boat theres great anchorage in the bay. Hang out on the beach all day in summer or cosy up in the lounge with the Woodburner, enjoying the views in winter.

Swimming, bush walks, fishing, diving, visit the Historic Mansion House theres never a dull moment here. But if thats what you want there can be plenty of those too.

Two bedrooms on a fully fenced property, safe for the children. The Cottage suits couples or families, one bedroom has bunks and a single, and the other has two King singles that pushed together make a king. (cot and highchair available too). So we can comfortable sleep a family of five.

Also there are two bathrooms, each has a shower and toilet plus one has a bath. The beach is very safe for swimming.

To get to Kawau you have to park at Sandspit and catch either a water taxi or large ferry. You will be dropped off at your own private wharf. It is just a two minute walk up to the house. Also there are no shops except The Yatch Club, it's a 20 min walk over hill or about the same around the rocks when the tides out. They have some supplies and a pub with food. You will need to bring all your your food and some extra loo paper incase, but a few basics supplied at the bach. Please bring own towels, Linen and tea towels.

Everything else supplied.

We have 2 Childrens Kayaks for your use found behind the house and one adult one, please supply own life jackets. There also a dingy but please ask where the oars are kept as we have had them go missing in past and now have to hide them.

A great relaxing holiday for the whole family you will never forget.

A slice of heaven, real New Zealand Bach!

  • 5 of 5

A slice of heaven, real New Zealand Bach! Thanks so much for sharing such an amazing place, we loved the peace and quiet and the kids loved jumping off the wharf, bushwalking, discovering nature and paddling about in the bay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to relax and unwind. We even managed to catch a fish of the wharf. Brilliant break, great accommodation - thank you.
