"Joire-de-Vivre" - North Cove
This home is literally in the Pacific Ocean at high tide. Situated on the northern arm, (Moana Cove), of North Cove, Kawau Island. Just half an hour from Sandspit by water taxi.
Moana Cove is very tidal so the jetty, attached to the house, can be used for arrivals and departures approximately one to one and a half hours either side of the high tide. It would be advisable to coordinate the tide and the ferry for arrivals and departures.
Once there, you are virtually in another time and place. There are walking tracks up to the ridge behind the house, then along the ridge to virtually everywhere on the Island.
Just feel and soak up the peace and the quiet, and the sound of the tui's, wood pigeons, wekas, seagulls, and the odd distant call of the kookaburras. Feed the sprats off the balcony at high tide, and watch the stingrays glide up the cove and back with the ebb and flow of the tide.
We also have a brand new 42in plasma screen with Sky TV. Dial up internet access available free of charge.
$85-$120 per night
