Location

New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand

The matchbox is based on Nat & Zar's land in lower Vogeltown, New Plymouth. It's a quiet back-section, overlooking the Huatoki walkway and surrounded by native bush. The centre of town is a 15min walk, 7min bike ride, or 5min car ride away. That's where you'll find all the restaurants, museums, libraries, shops, and supermarkets.

We have a dairy selling basic supplies 5 mins walk away, or at the other end of Mill Road is the neighbourhood shops - dairy, fish n chips, hairdresser, Indian takeaway.

The beautiful Pukekura Park and Brooklands bowl are 15mins walk away.

During your stay
We are aiming to make your stay as self-sufficient as possible, by offering a house manual explaining how elements of the matchbox work e.g. the slide-out bed. There's also self-check in, so you can arrive anytime after 2pm (although always nice to have an idea). Glen & Jon are on site in the other tiny house, who aim to give you privacy and let you make the space yours. We are always available by phone, and live 10mins away if any emergencies.
