  • Our house is just above Leigh Harbour (above a reserve)on 7acres of mainly bush & organic gardens.

Our self contained holiday house is situated just above Leigh Harbour (above a reserve) on 7 acres of mainly bush & organic gardens. We have spectacular views over the Leigh Harbour, across the wharf, & out to Barrier & Tawharanui. It is very peaceful & private but we are not isolated. You can walk down our (steep) track to the harbour & wharf, around to the shops & back home, perhaps popping into the Leigh Sawmill Cafe on your way. We are just 5 mins from Goat Island Marine Reserve & Matheson Bay, 10 mins from beautiful Pakiri beach & a short drive from the many great cafes & vineyards in this area.

There are 3 double bedrooms each with an ensuite. The master bedroom has views as described above, & a wet floor bathroom. You can lie in bed & watch the boats or just enjoy the antics of our resident bird life, lots of kingfishers, kereru (NZ native pigeons), kaka (our native parrots), quail, tuis & sometimes a family of pheasants. The house is set up for use by anyone with a physical disability or in a wheelchair, please enquire for further details.

There are a couple of body boards & flippers, tennis racquets & basic fishing gear avail ($100 bond refundable on departure). Outside we have a BBQ & eating area at the rear of the house, as well as another table & benches out on the front lawn under our large old Totara tree.

    Three of us had a lovely Leigh-Matakana-Tawharanui stay using the bach as our base. It is as vintage Kiwi as they come, really clean and tidy, has a ton of character and is in an awesome, sunny position.

    A very clean, cosy, comfortable location to relax and unwind. I am so glad that we picked this place out of a few to stay at last minute. I will be recommending to others and I hope to return again.
