  • Privacy is key at this large home nestled in native bush

Karaka House is a hidden treasure of peace and total privacy, surrounded by an extensive native tree garden and on its own secluded coastal beach. This 5 bedroom Matakana beach house offers you ample space both inside and out.

This Matakana beach house spans 3 storeys with each living space opening onto wrap-around decking. As you enter the home, stairs lead you down to the main living areas. The spacious living room enjoys beautiful sea views, with french doors on 2 sides to capture the stellar scenery.

The open-plan dining and kitchen is an amazing space to entertain, with additional french doors to dine with a view. The modern, well appointed kitchen opens onto decking for a perfect outdoor dining option.

The second level of Karaka House is where you will find all 5 bedrooms.

The luxurious master suite is fitted with a super king bed, fireplace, walk-in wardrobe, and large french doors opening onto decking. Lay back and enjoy the fantastic sea views from the comfort of your suite, or relax on the deck while the sun is shining. The bath with perfect positioning to capture views from 3 sides is a spectacular vantage point for the ultimate relaxation!!

There are 2 open fireplaces in the home, and underfloor heating in each of the 3 upstairs bathrooms to ensure total comfort during your stay.

Karaka House is ideally placed with its own beach and riparian rights.

We have a manager living in the cottage on the property to help if needed, or get kayaks out for you. If you don't need him, you are unlikely to see him!

(Please note this property has a minimum stay of 2 nights all year round - unless other wise stated in our terms and conditions and or the rates table.)

We have a strict no parties and no weddings rule, sorry!

Special conditions: Our property manager lives in a cottage on the property with his daughter. Unless you need him, you wont' see him. But, if you would like to use kayaks or paddleboards, he is there to help! We are in native bush, so no open fires, no fireworks, and careful with butts if smoking. There will be a security deposit due of $750 also. This is our family home, but we live overseas, so we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Absolutely no parties!

  • The location is wonderful with magnificent, beautiful views over the bay

    The location is wonderful with magnificent, beautiful views over the bay. A perfect house for us, given its location close to Matakana. The house is full of character - with delightful reminders that it is a family home, not just a rented-out house.

  • We had an amazing stay in this beautiful old house

    We had an amazing stay in this beautiful old house. Very peaceful, relaxed surroundings. Plenty of room for a big group. Views to die for, gorgeous décor (without being too flashy) and everything you could possibly want for an easy stay from fully equipped kitchen, stereo system, books, games and kayaks! We would stay here again for sure.

  • Absolutely stunning house with a very homely yet luxurious feel

    Absolutely stunning house with a very homely yet luxurious feel. Large enough for a group of 10 and also child friendly if you have little ones. Gorgeous kitchen with a large dining table that we used heaps. Wrap around decks for morning and evening entertaining. Loved the views which are forever changing with tides. Beautiful birdlife. Fabulous swimming. Plenty of (gorgeously decorated) bathrooms. Privacy and total relaxation or a bit of dancing thanks to a great stereo system! :-) Loved it.

  • Hands down best place we've stayed and we managed to feed everyone...

    Hands down best place we've stayed and we managed to feed everyone off the kayak fishing. I'd go every month if we could afford it.
