Kawa Cottage, Woolley Street, Matapouri, Tutukaka Coast (Bachcare)

Surrounded by native bush and enjoying its own access down to the golden sands of Woolley’s Bay, Kawa Cottage really is a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

Nestled into the hillside overlooking the Bay, this fabulous weatherboard home has been renovated to a very high standard, introducing a host of contemporary creature comforts without sacrificing an ounce of character or charm. Floor-to-ceiling windows ensure you’ll always be able to appreciate the breath-taking beach view, while excellent flow allows a gentle breeze to filter through the property.

Outside, native birdsong acts as the soundtrack and stunning Pohutukawa trees frame the setting, with the sparkling waters of Woolley’s Bay providing the ultimate backdrop. There’s no need for a TV here as getting away from the hectic city life into nature is what it’s all about. Relax and unwind with a drink by the BBQ in the afternoon sun, go for a boogie board, or wander down the private steps towards the beach – there’s even a double kayak for those looking for more adventure!

Of course, the highlights aren’t just confined to Woolley’s Bay. The world-renowned Whale Bay – perfect for swimming, snorkelling and picnics – is just a short drive or comfortable walk away, while nearby Sandy Bay is regarded as one of the region’s best surf spots.

Whether you’re looking to explore nature’s playground, or simply sit back and recharge the batteries, Kawa Cottage truly is the ultimate destination!
