This comfortable space adorned with mid century furniture including record player and homeware is a home away from home for you to relax and unwind.

Wander the myriad of tracks that crisscross the bush to find quiet spaces to read or just sit and think. Soak in the cedar hot tub under the massive ancient Puriri trees listening to the Morepork, Tui and Kereru (giant native wood pigeon).

Enjoy the fantastic local walks close by, visit a vineyard or two or ride a horse along Pakiri beach. If you just want to relax, pop a steak on the BBQ by the outdoor fire or just snuggle up in bed and watch movies on your very own super wide projection screen.

Perfect Space for two or bring some friends and pitch a tent.

Extra friends are welcome at $75 per head.

  • The property is the perfect place for a weekend getaway

    The property is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. It's remote location in the bush is fantastic. And the outdoor hot tub is as amazing as it sounds. Would highly recommend this place to anyone, and would love to return.

  • We found the property to be absolutely amazing

    We found the property to be absolutely amazing. We enjoyed total privacy, record player, projector for watching movies, log fire, hot tub, and the outdoor bath and shower. Bed was super-warm and comfy. Ideal location just minutes drive to Matakana township. We would definitely stay here again.

  • The house is the perfect getaway place

    The house is the perfect getaway place. We were beyond happy to have found it and the cherry on the Top was taking a yoga class at their studio.

    Fantastic bach surrounded by bush and fields with beautiful views. Great for getting away from it all and relaxing, especially in the hot tub and outdoor bathroom. Would definitely recommend and we will book again.
