Places to stay in Kawakawa Bay
Our place is less then 5 minutes walk to the beach. We are less then 10 minutes drive to Clevedon Oyster Farm, and less then 45 minutes to Auckland Airport. We are close to a few regional parks. We are 15 minutes drive from Clevedon cafe’s and restaurants.
We have 2 queen size beds in each room. You have your own bathroom and we will supply towels and linen.
We live in a very quiet street. There is a farm on one side of my house where the sheep come up close to the fence.
  • I can recommend Toni's place to anybody.

  • I spent a quick night here while driving south through Auckland and it did not disappoint. The space was clean, well decorated and comfortable and Toni was very welcoming and nice. The room is in a very nice, modern house in a nice neighborhood. I arrived around 6pm and left around 6am but I very much enjoyed my stay :)

    Rudy2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Super quiet place, beautiful rural outlook just a short walk from the beach. The room is spacious, light and elegant.

    Ruth2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • I had a good stay with Toni and her daughter. The house is very clean, the bedroom is spacious and bright. The beach is a few meters from the house. I recommend this accommodation and I will come back without hesitation. Thank you for everything Toni.

  • We booked very last minute for a stay at Toni's and she responded straight away. The place is stylish inside and very clean (I love your decor!). The bed is comfy with nice linen and also guest towels. The shower is hot and powerful. We are newish to the homestay/shared living environment but Toni and her daughter are very relaxed about you staying and the area of the house that air bnbers stay in is quite private too. Their German Shephard is a little boisterous while you are at the properties perimeter but as soon as you get close turns into a big softie who loves a stroke. I recommened this property to other NZ travellers :)

    Briony2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Toni has a beautiful house very clean and tide, and an amazing dog who is lovely and friendly We enjoyed our stay very much and we spend a couple of sunny days in Kawa Kawa Is an amazing place to relax and enjoy the nature ! A truth kiwi experience! Definitely we will love to come back!

  • The room is so clean and tidy. Great location. Would definitely stay here again if I come back to this area.

    A very spacious two bedroom house has been newly renovated and sits on a huge 900m2 section backing on to a farm on a quiet no exit street. Located in the tranquil seaside community of Kawakawa Bay a mere 45 minutes drive from Auckland Airport. Get a glimpse of the shore from the new under cover deck. Plenty of parking for the boat and space for the kids to run around. Walking distance to the beach, with many great walking tracks and safe swimming beaches nearby.

Condiments and spices and breakfast basics provided along with all the basics you don't want to be buying when on holiday.

    Enjoy the peace and quiet this property has to offer and enjoy looking at the stars at night or explore the many wonderful places nearby by day. Regional parks, Tapapapanga, Waharau and Waitawa are some of the local gems. Pick up Cockles at the end of the street during low tide, or wheel the kayaks down at high tide.

There are two boat launches in Kawakawa bay, one is a free public ramp accessible at high tide and the other is Kawakawa Bay boat club with excellent facilities and can be used for a small fee. This is a real slice of New Zealand paradise less than an hour from Auckland City central.
  • Brilliant stay and lovely hosts. Wouldn't hesitate to book again or recommend. A beautiful and clean home with lots of charming details (we loved the spoons as cupboard door handles!) and the location cant be beaten! Best of all was walking up to the sound of the birds, amazing views of the night sky with such little light pollution and being steps away from the beach. Our kids loved it here too. We were sad to leave.

  • Beautiful place, stunning views. Craig’s communication and info was great, really helpful & everything we needed to know! Would highly recommend.

    Karen2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • AMAZING!

    Cara2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the most beautiful houses we have ever found on Airbnb. The view of Kawakawa Bay is amazing and the whole design of the house made the whole experience to a next level. My family and I had the most relaxing two days in our trip! Will definitely come back again!

    Carol2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, great amentities & beautiful view. Lots of privacy. We went with our 3 kids ( 3 to 5yo) and this house worked well with them (although we couldn't use the top bunk beds due to no safety railing). The garden isn't fully fenced so kids need to be watched or old enough to not run away. Overall, we had a prefect relaxing stay and highly recommend this place!

    Amelie2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning place nestled on the hill with amazing views over the bay. Would highly recommend this place to relax and unwind, so well equipped with everything you need!

    Neerali2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house in a stunning location. We spent a week there and were very happy. The house is very well equipped and comfortable. We had a look at many Auckland houses (okay, this is a bit outside Auckland), and I definitely think we made the right choice.

    Malcolm2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to escape with the family!

    Madelaine2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • A stunning and spacious home with beautiful views of kawakawa bay. This place was around a 15 minute drive to our wedding venue at Kauri Bay Boomrock and its enormous and bright living area was perfect for getting ready for the big day. The home was so tranquil, surrounded by bush and native kawakawa. We really enjoyed the outdoor shower and the indoor shower with a floor to ceiling glass panel with a view out to the bay. Such a beautiful home and I would love to come back to stay again.

    Paddy2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This lovely little holiday home is beautiful as very peaceful. It’s surroundings are amazing. Even Lola the pig and the goat. It’s super clean, we were welcomed with home baked cookies, bread, milk, chocolates, grapes. The little touches were very generous and gratefully received. It’s about 40 mins drive to Auckland 15 mins to a beach and 10 mins to a pretty village. The only thing I would suggest if you are staying a while they have no oven or stove top just a microwave and electric pan. But I can not fault anything else. Hazel was attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be telling our Aussie friends about it. Thank you

    Nestled in the Kawakawa Bay valley, Sticky Beak Creek is a picturesque two acre property with a native bush clad stream (creek) winding past, newly planted orchards and three paddocks that surround the house where sheep and Tina the miniature horse live. There are also free ranging ducks and chickens, and Elsa the dog. This is Sticky BeakCreek. Come and enjoy.
    Spend your day quietly, enjoying the gardens and grounds, hand feeding the animals, paddling in the creek or hanging out in the hammock down in the orchard. Relax on the deck summer and winter either in the sun or the star filled night as the chiminea glows. Or take a tour of all the beautiful beaches, scenic reserves and outdoor sports available close by. Kaiaua and the best fish and chips in New Zealand, the Seabird Coast and Miranda hot springs are on the door step.
  • Definitely book here you won't regret it! Denise has an amazing place that you don't get the full scope of until you get there. A completely organic garden, plenty of land and lots of friendly animals. Her dog Elsa is gorgeous and likes being taken on walks. There is a private room for a game of pool and a drink. In the morning you get freshly made bread with an array of homemade jams/preserves to choose from. Such a great location with an easy walk down to the beach. Bed is super comfortable with fresh linen and plenty of pillows. Denise is really friendly but also lets you do your own thing and treat the house like its yours. Will hopefully get to go back one day.

    Madeline2018-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Denise has a charming farm with lots of friendly animals. She offers wonderful hospitality and generous accommodations. The location is still close enough to Auckland city centre, we were able to easily make day trips into the city.

    Renata2018-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Denise is a lovely host (was very comprehensive about us arriving late) and her place is immaculate! We've stayed in many different Airbnb's around the world and finding one so clean with a super comfy bed is hard! This one ticks all boxes. Definitely recommend it !

    Spend a night or two 'off the Grid' (no Power) in our self-catering Genuine Mongolian Yurt. A unique experience and less than 1 hour from Auck Airport. Beaut swimming beach only a few mins drive then relax under the stars in a gorgeous 100 yr old outdoor bath (SORRY THE BATH IS OUT OF ACTION TEMPORARILY WHILST THERE IS A FIRE BAN IN PLACE. feb 2020)
    The Yurt is tastefully decorated with quality furnishings. A wonderful camping experience with all the luxuries of home. Relax and enjoy a steamy hot bath outside under the stars in a gorgeous 100 yr old bath heated by way of an old copper, wood fired, water boiler. A clear dome adorns the top of the Yurt so you can enjoy the stars on a clear night from the super comfortable queen size bed. At the moment we do not have hot running water but there is an indoor shower (cold) which is very refreshing in those hot summer days.
    We are situated only 50 mins south of Auckland CBD. Take a beautiful drive through the quaint little village of Clevedon which hosts a number of craft shops and has a local Farmers market every Sunday morning. Then travel on through Kawakawa bay towards Orere Point. Our property boarders on to one of Aucklands most beautiful Regional Parks - Tapapakanga which has a lovely sandy swimming beach and is a great fishing spot. Tapapakanga is situated on the north western shores of the Firth of Thames. This coast is also known as the Sea Bird Coast and is popular with Birdwatchers from all around the world. It is also part of the Kayak Trail - starting from Maraetai and finishing in Waharau. You can complete the whole 4 day trail or just have a leisurely paddle around the shoreline exploring all the hidden little coves. A five min drive takes you to a very popular fishing spot - The Mussel farms off Matinagarahi Beach. Your boat can be launched from here directly from the beach with a 4 wheel drive or there are two Boat Ramps within 15 kms either direction. Kawakawa Bay Boat ramp is accessible in all tides and Kaiaua Boat ramp You can take leisurely 30 min coastal drive south through Kaiaua to the Miranda Hot Pools which are Natural Mineral pools. A 50 min drive south and you can explore the Thames Market which is held on a Sat morn. Thames township is the beginning of the Coromandal Peninsular which has a rich history of Gold mining and has many attractions that are well worth visiting.
  • Magical space!! The Yurt and the environment that it is located in is superb, it feels authentic and magical. Josy knows how to decorate and has immaculate taste in furnishings. It’s styled magically and the bed is like sleeping in a 5star hotel while getting the glamping experience.

    Christina2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • I hired this for my newly wed friends and they raved about it! A special, unique and beautiful setting. Thank you.

    Henry2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved the place, truly amazing. Was wonderful sitting in the tub looking up at the stars late at night with only the sound of crickets. Fantastic experience and one will never ever forget. Josy's response to us staying only a few days before was pleasantly prompt especially as it was a bank holiday weekend. Would highly recommend!

  • What a great get away place! Private, peaceful, and very beautiful. The yurt was so amazing, the bed comfortable, and our host was wonderful. When we first arrived it was really warm inside the yurt, but no worries, it cools off by nightfall, so hang out on the deck and enjoy the view or hike to the beach through the bush, cow and sheep pastures. No electricity or hot water but that is part of the adventure!

    Nestled in the Kawakawa Bay valley, Sticky Beak Creek is a picturesque two acre property with a native bush clad stream (creek) winding past, newly planted orchards and three paddocks that surround the house where sheep and Tina the miniature horse live. There are also free ranging ducks and chickens, and Elsa the dog.
    This room is medium sized with one king single and one single bed, tallboy and double wardrobe. It has pretty rural views.
    Kawakawa Bay has two main beaches seperated by Whitford Point with a wide expanse looking out to the islands of Chamberlins and Waiheke. The water is shallow making it a safe swimming beach. There's plenty of parking along the beach front and at Whitford Point Reserve. Further along Coast Rd, past the boat ramps (where there's also a bait and tackle shop), are other pretty beaches and further around the headland, at the end of the road, is the secluded, deep water beach of Waiti Bay. From here, at low tide you can hike around the rocks and over the bush track to the beautiful Tawhitakino Beach Reserve.
  • Great place to stay, very handy to 440 MTB park and the beach.

  • Denise and Elsa are super nice and sweet. Denise gave me nice and good advice about my journey here, and turns out those suggestions are owesome. I am so lucky and grateful to meet good good people in New Zealand just like 7 years ago. good to know the whole land, the? animals, the garden, the creek.... everything is wonderful. then here goes the boy:"I don't want the dog Elsa leave, and I really love Elsa. and now I really miss Elsa. and maybe Elsa is missing me."

  • Quiet retreat with a few farm animals thrown in. Very pleasant place to stay. Beds were very comfy it's nice to have a private bathroom.

    Kirsten & Jas2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a place away from everything but still within a reasonable distance to Auckland you’ll love Denise’s place. Denise is a great host and will make you feel comfortable in her house. Can’t go wrong here especially when you love animals.

    Brigit2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place, great hospitality, warm welcome. It was nice to stay with Denise. Loved Elsa the dog and all the other animals. The room was beautiful, just like te house! When we are around... We'll definitely stop by again!!

  • Great location for anyone who wants to see the natural beauty of Kawakawa Bay. Absolutely wonderful and welcoming home, with beautiful scenery and lots of comfort. We were treated to homemade bread and preserves each morning, as well as a picturesque spot amongst the flowers and sunshine to eat it! Denise was an exceptional host, so easy to talk to and accomodating. Big thanks to her to waiting up for us when our flight into Auckland was late. Everything was incredibly clean and comfortable - absolutely no complaints here! We fell in love with the gorgeous dog Elsa, the miniature horse, the ducks and geese and all the sheep.

    Surrounded by decks this house is light-filled and warm. Gaze out to the beautiful native trees and birds or grab your togs and head for the beach. Visit Tapapakanga Regional Park or take the coast Rd down through Kaiua to Miranda Hot Pools, or visit Thames for a shop. Sitting down a long drive this house is near the beach and some lovely bush walks.
  • Awesome spot. Enjoyed the stay!

    James2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

  • Very cool spot with a nice bush out look. Locely gardens and a nice little stroll down to the beach. Place was clean and tidy and well looked after.

  • My friends and I had such a great stay at Kerry’s place! The property is stunning with an amazing garden and lots of spaces to sit and enjoy outside. The kitchen is well stocked for necessities, and there are plenty of CDs to enjoy. Like most homes in NZ, there wasn’t air conditioning but we were perfectly comfortable with the ability to open so many doors and windows and by having two fans! We also loved that we could walk a short distance to a nice and uncrowded beach. We definitely recommend this getaway home.

    We live in a very quiet street. There is a farm on one side of my house where the sheep come up close to the fence.

    We have a gorgeous brand new 80m2 studio space to invite you to stay. Think fresh, clean, white and bright with comforting natural elements for relaxation. Our vibrant country view is an absolute treat to wake up to. The famous Sunday Clevedon market is voted the best market in NZ! Thanks NZ, we love it too! You can get all the goodies you’ll need to treat your appetite during your stay (shop local) and enjoy live music from budding artists, pony rides and farm animal petting for the kids.
    Super comfy studio with large ensuite and kitchen with bench top stove. * Please note this price is for the studio space only which sleeps up to 4 people, we can accommodate more people at an extra charge, to rent the whole house - up to 16 people, is by enquiry. King bed, luxury linen and feather/down duvet, (for extra guests there are foam mattresses for the floor). Stunning views from lazing in bed and relaxing on the couch. Lovely wide opening windows with linen drapes and a new heat pump which cosies up the space super fast and is very quiet. This is a modern New Zealand Country house of 650m2, that has been divided into 3 self contained spaces, enabling large groups to stay at the same location with the convenience of their own private spaces (please note the price listed is for the studio which sleeps up to 4, not the entire house) . Now the construction and renovation has finished, we are in the process of lansdscaping - planting...a lot of planting. We are hoping to offer the entire house which sleeps 16+ as a hosting venue/accommodation later in 2019... watch this space, and please message us if you have any queries regarding this.
    This is a semi rural neighbourhood. There’s so many gorgeous walking tracks to explore not to mention beaches, and we’re only 45 mins from central Auckland and 35 mins from Auckland airport.
  • Great host and stay. Very spacious studio. Clean and tidy. Relaxed farm countryside feel. Comfy bed. If ya want to get away from at all, get out of reception and relax, this is the perfect spot!

  • Very good, clean, hygienic, spacious and cost-effective. The host family was very enthusiastic. Flying from Queenstown to Auckland in the evening, it took a lot of time to pick up the car at the airport. It was very late. At about 10pm, the host was afraid we were wrong Road, also driving at the gate, the hostess was waiting for us, arranged us, the host's parents were very enthusiastic, and introduced me to his family members and his goats, pink chickens, ducks, a very pleasant experience

    Christo2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

    Robyn2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • A gem in the bush, well worth the extra 5 mins if gravel road to get there. Has it’s own bush walk but close to a park entry. Very friendly paws, fabulous views north to the gulf, good verandah amenities and great hostess to top it as a stay. Loved it.

    Jenny2019-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • What can we say. Total Bush paradise with beautiful native trees as far as the eye can see, and bird song to die for. the vie over the Pohutukawa coast is breath taking too with the best Hostess ever and a brilliant breakfast all thrown in too.. if your wanting to see NZ at its best only 45 minuets from the CB and airport this is it.

    Sarah2019-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for the amazing stay. Your property is really a gem and we were honored that you have shared it with us. We especially liked the healthy breakfast (fresh fruit salad) and the super new large bathroom.

    Tobias2019-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Sue is a very kind and hospitable host. We had a lovely bedroom with a very good bed and our own (brandnew) bathroom. We could use the kitchen and sit anywhere we wanted. We were surprised by the nice breakfast that is included. The view from the deck is beautiful. We can definitely recommend this place.
