The property has fantastic views and is a ten minute walk to the wharf.

  • 4 of 5

The property has fantastic views and is a ten minute walk to the wharf. We were forced to relax and chill out because there is not much to do at South Cove . Perfect for reading your book or having a swim and fish. The house has everything we needed but could have been cleaner.

Positives: The location is magic.

  • 4 of 5

Positives: The location is magic. House quite new, with stunning views. 3rd bedroom is quite inaccessible so only 4 adults (2 couples) could stay there comfortably. Very quiet and private. Fully equipped.

Negatives: Wifi not available freely; (complicated system for connection at a hefty price.

Hygiene (cleanliness) is not a priority in kitchen or bathrooms? Could only get 1 TV channel?

The location is handy on the island.

  • 5 of 5

The location is handy on the island. Golf cart is provided. Be sure to bring a raincoat though for the walk to the golf cart from the wharf. South Cove was the first stop on the ferry (last on way back) which saves time.

The house is lovely, modern and has an entertaining feel to it. Since there are no shops on Kawau it was very handy that the kitchen was well stocked if we needed it and got tired of our own food. There were plenty of magazines, books and DVDS to look at.

We had an awesome time in this beautiful and modern bach.

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time in this beautiful and modern bach. A golf cart was arranged to bring all our baggage from wharf to bach. The views are spectacular, including sunset, and we really enjoyed just being there. The kitchen was fully equiped. The property could have been a little cleaner. Exploring the island by foot is difficult, so a boat is recommended. But if you don't have one like us you can enjoy yourself well by using the kayaks provided, warfjumping or just enjoying the amazing views.
