We wanted a getaway where we would feel looked after and were able to get away from it all. Loved the Beach House! So relaxing and quiet. The hosts, although new to the job (started August) were very welcoming and hospitable. Few little touches perhaps that will be learned over time - nothing to detract from the experience. The Queen Room we booked wasn't ready so they upgraded us to the main suite without any issues! We love it there and would definitely visit again for a treat.

Room tip: Beach facing rooms are more secluded but you pay for that!

Hello Sally & Patrick

Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate it.

It was a pleasure that The Beach House was able to offer you the relaxing, quiet night away that you were seeking. It is truly a restful location and it was a pleasure to host you both.

Our Beachfront Queen Suite is nearing completion after undergoing a renovation, and we look forward to being able to offer this up as another option for our guests. In the interim it was our pleasure to upgrade you to one of our two Beachfront King Suites.

We look forward to hosting you here again in the future.

Kind Regards
Bevan & Per - Lodge Managers

The Beach House is just gorgeous and Katie and Zeyn are the most amazing hosts. Zeyn is a wonderful chef and the food he serves is fabulous. The location of The Beach House could not be better. The beach front rooms are just that and are beautiful. If you are looking for a quite weekend to unwind or spend some quality together, this is the place!

Kawau island is an undiscovered gem. Arriving by water taxi and turning the corner into Vivian bay and seeing the beach house, encased by palms was a sight for sore eyes. Katie was waiting for us as soon as we embarked and check in was a breeze. Mid winter, clear water and white sand made us feel like we were a million miles away. The room was beautifully decorated and comfy. We were staying in a beach front King, with its own private deck and loungers. A sofa, table and mini kitchen ( no cooking facilities) gave the room extra space. Dinner was served in the lounge, were you could relax with drinks next to the open fire. Food was delightful and elegantly served. Will definitely be returning.

Honestly one of the best weekends of my life. The location was perfection and Katie and Zeyn's attentive yet relaxed approach instantly put us at ease. The food was heavenly and the views were to die for. I've been raving about The Beach House to friends and family and would definitely recommend it for that special weekend away.
