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!”
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.
“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.”
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!”
