The Orchard House is located in a country setting at the rear of our 13acre property. It is a quiet, well appointed and cozy haven to unwind in or simply recharge and refresh.

Located next door to the The Country Park which is home to The Stables restaurant, art galleries, craft shops, horse riding, weekend markets and the summer concerts.

Mere minutes from the Village which hosts the the bustling Farmers and Indie markets on Saturdays and Sundays. Discover the boutique shops, iconic kiwiana at Cream, sample some of the best local wines all in one place at The Vintry and catch one of the latest movies in the unique cinemas. For the foodies you can indulge in the many restaurants and cafes including the historic Matakana Pub.

The Orchard House is within ten minutes to Ascension Winery and both Omaha and Warkworth Golf Course. Local activities also include Morris and James pottery which offer factory tours, art galleries and wine tours

The Matakana Coast is also home to some of the best regional beaches including Tawharanui Regional Park, Omaha Beach, Scandretts Regional Park, Martins Bay, Whangateau, Leigh Goat Island Marine Reserve and over the hill to Pakiri Beach.

  • Comfortable, clean, quiet and had everything we needed

    Comfortable, clean, quiet and had everything we needed. Close to places to eat and not far from town and attractions.

  • We loved our stay in the Orchard House

    We loved our stay in the Orchard House. Isabelle is so friendly and helpful.Everything we needed was there and it was beautifully presented. Unfortunately we had heavy rain on the first three days, but once the sun came out we enjoyed the area very much indeed. It is in such a good spot to explore many of the beaches and we visited Tawharanui a number of times. It was an easy 25 minute drive. I think the house is very good value. The only downside is the poor cellphone reception in the area, but that could be a bonus. Thank you Isabelle.

    Small and quite basic, no TV or radio or any of the small extras that make somewhere a special place to stay. Therefore very expensive for what it is leading to the 3 star review. Having said that the location is great right next to the Stables if you are going there for a wedding, and it was very clean and tidy. Very comfortable bed.
