    WOW! What an amazing place! The house was so great, we had trouble getting out of the pool to explore everything that Leigh/Matakana has to offer! Very accommodating owners also which makes the stay that more comfortable. Thanks Heaps!

    A fabulous site on the cliff, perhaps the best in Leigh? 3 levels of decking so you can be amongst the tree canopy in some places or getting closer & closer to the top of the mighty kauri. Gorgeous views of the bay below, the fishing boats coming into harbour & bigger ships on the horizon. Our visit coincided with the pre-Easter storm, great to hear the waves thundering below us overnight. Fab pool (crisp at this time of year!) though would have been nice if pool lights had been working.
