Explore Kawau Island

Leanne looks forward to welcoming you to her unique location on Kawau Island, Auckland, New Zealand. Kawau Lodge is available as a self-catering holiday home. Take a special holiday break – for a (long) weekend, a week or even longer. Special rates apply for long term stays.

Ideal painter’s or writers retreat. Great environment for workshops.

An hour’s drive north of Auckland you will arrive at the seaside village of Sandspit where you can connect with your 30 minute ferry or water taxi ride out to Kawau Lodge located in sheltered North Cove.

Once you step ashore you will immediately feel the tranquillity and peacefulness of this wonderful island. You have no choice but to relax and enjoy the experience.

There are no roads on Kawau Island so the loudest sounds your will hear are the abundant native birds.
