A very relaxing stay at the beautiful and intimate Vivian Bay resort. Katie and Zeyn were the perfect hosts, very personable and friendly. Our room was comfortable and overlooked the courtyard and the sea beyond. We walked along the white sandy beach and climbed the bushy hill behind the resort, amazing views. No roads and cars on this island! We recommend this tranquil spot for anyone wanting to escape to sea!

Stayed: September 2015

I was after something special to do for my mum's birthday. She's in her late 50s and likes adventures and the finer things in life (read: good wine, good food, beautiful scenery!). As Aucklanders, we've been to Waiheke numerous times, Bracu, the Matakana vineyards, lots of great restaurants in Auckland etc, so I was after something different. I'm glad I thought to google 'Kawau restaurants' - I stumbled across The Beach House and it ticked so many boxes for a surprise day out. We got the morning ferry over from Sandspit with our puppy in tow, and were greeted on the wharf at Vivian Bay by Kate and Zeyn who enthusiastically welcomed us, and showed us around. We settled in on the beautiful patio right on the sea front for a glass of bubbles, had a walk on the beach and then had the most beautiful meal made by Zayn, on the deck under a huge pohutukawa. The menu consisted of around 6 options, and the three dishes we ordered were all really top notch (grilled hapuka with quinoa and veggies, chicken Caesar salad, open halloumi sandwich). We'd mentioned it was mum's birthday earlier, so when desert came mum's came bearing candles and a big happy birthday scrawled across the plate. When the wind got up a bit we went inside to play board games and have coffee. When the ferry arrived to collect us, we all agreed we could have happily stayed for much longer - ideally for a few days! We'll definitely be back to stay. In summer it would be even more magical.

So lets be very clear! This place is awesome, it ticks all the boxes for location and accommodation ETC. But what make it exceptional are the hosts. Kate and Zeyn. These guy's are not your run of the mill cardboard cut outs the hospitality industry seems to deliver in multitudes all over the world. No these are the bright shining stars of hospitality. We (Wife, Son and Daughter in-law) turned up on a rainy day this month to a cracking log fire welcome drinks looking over Vivian Bay. For the restive our stay (4 days) it just got better. The atmosphere Kate and Zeyn provide is very, very professional, relaxed and focused. We could not have wanted anything more from our stay. And the food! Wow. One evening we had the degustation with matching wine. Eight courses of NZ culinary heaven. FYI,,, I am a cynical old rusty world traveller and this place is and these (Katie and Zeyn) are exceptional. Don't wait go there now,, soon you will have to book a year ahead.

Room Tip: Book early.....Book now!

Katie and Zeyn were an amazing couple from the time we arrived to when we left. They are fantastic hosts with attention to detail. The food was beautiful, the accommodation spotless. We will be back with the family next time.
