Rakino Island – the Jewel in the Gulf
Rakino is a small, peaceful Island in the Hauraki Gulf, approximately 45 minutes from Auckland by ferry. It offers a serene setting with amazing views, nice walks and safe swimming.
The Bach in Woody Bay is well set up with solar power and water. A short walk down the hill will find you at private swimming bays. The amazing views from the Bach, span from Rangitoto to Kawau Island and beyond. The sunsets are spectacular and it is a very private setting.

The space

Rakino has many small and sheltered bays, with safe swimming, which are easily within walking distance and offer spots for fishing and snorkeling. The Island is well known for its small and friendly community as well as a visiting place for boats.
If you are looking for somewhere to really unwind, away from the hustle and bustle, to get in touch with nature then this is the place. The Bach is surrounded by native birds which offer beautiful song. Including Tui’s, Bellbirds, Wood Pigeons, Banded Rail, Quail, as well as seabirds and many more.
With a modern kitchen, many hours can be spent dining on the large deck while soaking up the view and watching the world go by.

We have someone on the Island that I organise to pick you up from the Ferry & drop you to the property & give you a brief on the Island

We had a wonderful stay in this well appointed and comfortable bach. The view is very special with easy access to a couple of lovely beaches. Highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful time in Rakino Island. Pat was lovely and friendly, told us all about the house and around. We were very impressed by the batch, super upmarket : comfy bed, stunning views, well equipped, not to mentioned the sunny deck. Highly recommended for a romantic gateway :)
