Mataia Homestead is a 125 year old historical homestead located on a 1400ha unique combination of a working sheep and beef farm and private nature reserve on the beautiful Kaipara Harbour. The perfect spot for families or groups looking for a quiet retreat, the homestead is situated on approximately 5 acres of gardens, including a large productive vegetable and herb garden and a heritage fruit orchard. There are a number of short and long walks through the 400 hectare private conservation reserve which is made up largely of coastal native forest margin and salt marsh wetland. This area is a great place for bird-watchers and boasts rare populations of Fernbird, Banded Rail and North Island Brown Kiwi and is host to a large number of other native bird species. The two-storey homestead features 6 bedrooms, two bathrooms, a library/television room, music room, dining room and large open plan kitchen and lounge area making it the perfect space for groups.

Wow - what a fantastic place. Loved it and we were there in the middle of a storm! A home of character and charm set on a wonderful farm. Heard the kiwis at night and loved the gardens and orchard. We didn't have time to explore the walks but did do some walking closeby in very heavy rain and just enjoyed the history and scenery. A great place and will certainly go again sometime! Thanks
Beautiful property! We had an amazing stay and loved our time here. Has everything you need and the house itself and gardens are very well looked after. Would love to come back. So close to Auckland but you feel like you're far away. Thank you!
Mataia Homestead is an absolute treasure. This rural property is large, comfortable and immaculately clean. Our party of 8 had the best weekend away. Fairy-tale bedrooms, plenty of communal space and a fully equipped kitchen. Huge decks and a beautiful garden.
