Lots of local knowledge. Clean, bright and cozy. Book your stay today!

The space
There is everything you need for a comfortable stay including a sleeping/lounge pod & outdoor Kitchen/bathroom pod with a large comfortable deck surrounding.
The covered outdoor kitchen includes double ring gas cooker, microwave oven, Pizza maker & BBQ, full size fridge, jug, 4 slice toaster, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery - you should find everything you need.

The bathroom has been designed with a beautiful private bush view and finished to a high standard.

There is an efficient heater for cooler evenings.

The Studio is located quite separately from our main house with gorgeous garden views of private bush, shrubs, olive trees and our flower cutting gardens.

The sleeping pod has a queen size bed plus a window seat, ideal for a child. The high end of the deck has a balustrade around but there is a drop at the lower end, so may not be great for exploring toddlers (see photos).

As we are now in Autumn with cooler weather please be aware that there is indoor/outdoor living as described in the listing and visible in photos.

I love travelling and meeting people so hosting on air bnb allows me to do both. We have been hosting on Air Bnb for a number of years now, initially in Ponsonby and now in Matakana and can't wait to share our beautiful property and the surrounding area with you.
