New barn with large bedrooms overlooking farmland and gardens yet only minutes away from three villages where shopping is leisurely and easy. Our famous Saturday morning Matakana Markets are a must to go and see. With lots of very good restaurants around. French/Italian/degustation/pubs and bars aplenty. Beaches and bush walks along with cycle tracks are all round the area. Swimming with the fish at Goat Island is a must and the Milk trip to Kawau is also very interesting for history lovers and the beaches on the Island are wonderful. Needless to say fishing in the area is great. Diving for scallops, cockles and crayfish in season along with snapper, travelly and deep sea fishing all in the area. Horse treks and animal farms for the children. Wonderful native bush walks with many near extinct birds have been captured and put into our Tawharanui Reserve. Kiwi walks at night are a must even if only to hear their calls! Sandy golden beaches for walking and playing on. Swimming in summer a must also surf beaches only minutes away. There is so much to do in the area that a few days will not be enough! Another trip for another time.

  • Barn was perfect

    Barn was perfect. You can tell the owners take a lot of pride in the presentation of the barn and its surrounding grounds. The towels and bedding were great quality and beds were really comfy. Had a really nice stay and would happily recommend to others.
