This beautiful freestanding chalet offers a private and exceptional view over the serene Kawau Bay. Your stay is only improved with some of New Zealand's finest beaches and restaurants within a 15- minute traffic-free drive away. A blossoming garden, barbecue, and jetty within a short 5-minute walk make staying here the unique experience you hope for it to be with the Matakana farmers market and cinema a step away.
“Fantastic space! Beautiful views of the bay. Modern and clean with all the amenities you would want. Very kid friendly! The host kindly lent us a cot, highchair and some toys and books which our son loved! We will definitely be staying again!”
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.
“Beverly and Keith were great hosts- very friendly and helpful. I felt very welcome in their home. I had a lovely view of the sea from my bedroom and just a short walk away from the house was an amazing view looking over both bays!”
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.
“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 :-)”
