Take State Highway 1 from Auckland through Whangarei to Kawakawa. Turn left at the intersection just before Kawakawa – do not go straight through to Paihia.

Approximately 6 kilometres past Moerewa is a “T” intersection that turns right onto State Highway 10. Turn right onto SH10 and travel towards Kerikeri. Do not travel straight ahead to Kaikohe.

At the Kerikeri round about continue straight on State Highway 10 (do not turn right into Kerikeri) for 18.8 kilometres (about 20 minutes) and turn right onto a well sign posted “Tourist Drive” towards Matauri Bay and the Cavalli Island group. Do not travel north to Kaeo.

After travelling 17.4 kilometres you reach the Matauri Bay intersection, which is a “T” intersection. Turn left onto Wainui Rd towards Te Ngaere Bay (tourist drive) as opposed to turning right and going to Matauri Bay.

Now set your “trip counter” back to zero.

Follow the left-hand road as it meanders around such bays as Te Ngaere and Wainui for another 9.4 kilometres.

After 9.4 kilometres look out for a clearly marked right hand turn. Turn right. There is a blue sign high up on a concrete lamp post marked “Mahinepua” Road. Look out for the “Cavalli Beach House” sign up on a pine tree.

Travel half a kilometre down this unsealed road and turn left into a private drive where there is a fence and electronic gate. The keypad for the gate is on the right side, beside the letterboxes. You will be given the gate code when you book your accommodation.
