THE BEACH HOUSE – KAWAU ISLAND
A private island escape to pristine beach overlooking clear blue water – you have discovered The Beach House nestled on the edge of stunning Vivian Bay on Kawau Island. Hear the calls of New Zealand’s native birds – tui, fantails, wood pigeons, and kingfishers and, as night falls, the sound of Morepork and Kiwi. The friendly Weka will entertain you as they forage near the beach.
Luxurious oceanfront and romantic bush cottage rooms overlook the sea. Each features King or Queen Size beds draped with fine linens, ensuite with walk-in showers, toiletries, tea and coffee facilities, TV, CD player and beach towels.
Expansive decking and courtyards on the edge of the bay offer the perfect place to dine al-fresco. In winter sit around the open fire in our cosy restaurant. Exquisite cuisine, created by chef using the freshest locally sourced produce.
Take an exciting Seaplane flight from downtown Auckland to land right outside The Beach House, or drive north on excellent highways to Sandspit, a pretty small ‘hamlet’ with historical beach cottages. Take a short ferry trip across Kawau Bay and step ashore at your private jetty. Stroll a few metres to The Beach House – kick off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes – time to relax and unwind.
Take a kayak out onto the sheltered bays, go snorkelling, dive for shellfish, catch a snapper, bush walk or just simply relax with a good book and unwind. As night falls the skies open to showcase the stars. No light pollution, no roads, and no cars – just exquisite décor, stunning ocean views and exceptional cuisine.
