Just 70 minutes from Auckland, yet so far away. This large Kiwi bach offers mature native bush, sea views, privacy and quiet. It is a 10 minute walk to Scotts Landing with its historic homestead, Maori pa site, wharf and boat ramps .

The property is on a large section inhabitated by Kereru (wood pigeon), Tuis, Ruru and Kingfisher. The deck detours around an ancient pohutakawa tree and there are scores of mature nikau palms on the land. There are several ARC and DOC reserves within short walking distance of the house.

It is a great location to relax and explore the Mahurangi as well as nearby Matakana, Warkworth, Kawau, Sandspit, Goat Island, Tawharanui and Leigh.

The house is furnished in a bach style and intentionally does NOT have a television. Relax in a unique Kiwi bach surrounded by native bush. The best of the old Scotts Landing.

  • Second time we have stayed at this bach

    Second time we have stayed at this bach. Excellent bach to book in summer or winter. Lots of walks and even swam in late May in beautiful deep bay at Scotts homestead. Very warm with fire and relaxing with lots of books and games available. Well set up bach to really wind down. Thanks Chris M.

    3 couples found the property ideal for a break away from the city. Fab view thru the native bush towards Mahurangi harbour, city. Location great for taking boat out, walking, exploring the Matakana area, wineries etc. Wonderful bird life and the house comfortable and met our needs for 3 nights. Thank you for allowing us to use your property Chris.

  • Great Bach, awesome location, perfect for exploring the Warkworth and Matakana area

    Great Bach, awesome location, perfect for exploring the Warkworth and Matakana area. Only slight downside to the Bach is the loft/internal balcony, the bulastrades are very wide apart and dangerous for small children.

  • Fantastic place to stay

    Fantastic place to stay. Lots of room - clean and tidy with great views. Amazing location, lots of nice walks around and places to swim. Owner is a very nice person to deal with. Hope to get back there sometime.
