- english, Scots
A true Scot , having travelled extensively, I was drawn to Kawau Island after searching for a haven, a small paradise. Discovered Kawau Island in 1997' a trip to Bon accord Harbour' with the family. Went back in 2001 for a visit on water taxi and recall a 'special' place. On arrival at South Cove knew I'd found the spot! A unique and magical place to 'get away from it all'! A varied work life and stepping back, brings me to another chapter in life .. South Cove Kawau island.
Abigail purchased this Cabin in 2019
Why Abigail chose Kawau Island
It has a ' Kawau Island ' feel about it... The house was a Showhome from the Homeshow and barged over, in the late 1990's when only kitsets and transportables were available, with few trades people living on the island at that time... to which 2 extentions have since been added . Wonderfully insulated and cosy, a Kiwi Bach.
What makes this Cabin unique
Excellent local short walks, swimming, bird watching and fishing. A walk to the historic Mansion House is well worth doing, full of Governor Grey's treasures, also the Coppermine, that you will see as you arrive on a boat at South Cove. A safe place for children to explore and enjoy the wild life... wallabies and friendly wekas.

This is a special place that has been untouched in so many ways, yet it has everything from hot water to WIFI. Awesome part of nz that everyone would take the time to visit.
Great property with amazing views.
Great property with amazing views. Very peaceful. Had everything we could need or want. We kept busy by exploring South Cove using the local short tracks, fishing off the wharf, night-time wildlife hunting walks and a day trip to Mansion House and the DoC reserve using the ferry.

We absolutely loved our stay at Kawau Kabin.
We absolutely loved our stay at Kawau Kabin. The bach is superb, with stunning views and cosy bedrooms. We had everything we needed for our stay and made some excellent meals in the kitchen. It was a treat to have wekas and other native birds around the house and we also really enjoyed the walks in the area and being able to transport our luggage on the golf cart! We're all hoping to be able to visit again soon.
