A stunning and unique life style, 7 hectare property in Matakana overlooking Kawau Bay from the spa, vineyard and orchard and has an extensive concrete drive past glow worms at night and regenerative native forest. Totally private one can enjoy a hot outdoor bath or shower while star gazing into the jet black night. The barn style family area is substantial and the opportunity for outdoor dining well catered for with the massive timber table, barbeque and brazier.

The space
Peppered with local art and sculpture and a touch of quirky Kiwiana – this property is very special and offers everything one requires for a most private peaceful yet central holiday in this prestigious area. It is near new, fully insulated with fans and heat pumps and a fire. Guests are assured of an excellent nights rest in the exceptionally quiet glade in the comfort of cosy winter duvets, superior beds and pillows and plenty of heating/cooling options. The indoor fire and outdoor brazier adds to the relaxing winter ambience with a woodshed well stocked with Manukau logs.

A herb and Vege garden combined with the substantial orchard provide seasonal fruits while you explore the region. Watch the Tuis, Kingfishers + more outside the house on the trees next to the lawn. Designed for four couples, there are also great glamping options or three couples and four children in the loft, would be an ideal family option.
The property is just minutes from the Matakana village, boutique wineries, olive groves, endless fresh produce, restaurants, markets and the renowned wildlife sanctuary and marine reserve Tawharanui.
There are two bathrooms inside and one outside and one up by the orchard. The kitchen is large and well equipped with huge gas stove and oven.

Please note the 4th bedroom with 2 queens is a mezzanine.

See www. for more information on the area dotted with numerous outstanding beaches and cute little villages.
