How to Get Here

The Beach House is an hour's drive north from Auckland's CBD.  The Kawau Cruises Water Taxis and Ferry Shuttles leave from Sandspit (with public parking onsite at $12.00 per 24 hour period) where you have a choice of a scheduled ferry cruise, or a water taxi which departs 24/7.  
The GPS address for the ferry departure point if you require for your travels is:

There are also luxury options such as a charter boat which leaves from Westhaven Marina in Auckland or float plane operated by Auckland Seaplanes departing from Wynyard Quarter. We can arrange the transport whichever way you choose.

Upon arrival to Kawau Island, The Beach House is situated right on the beachfront just a few metres from the jetty in Vivian Bay. Private boats can tie up to one of our moorings or anchor in the bay and enjoy the sandy beaches and natural surroundings. 

 

We recommend the following travel options:
