Description

  • Rural escape for nature lovers
  • Bush and coastal walks on the Kaipara Harbour
  • Beautiful garden surroundings

Mataia Homestead is an 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 developing gardens, including a large productive vegetable and herb garden and an establishing 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.

The homestead is located equidistant from three townships - Warkworth, Wellsford and Helensville (all within a 30 minute drive).

Special walk packages are also available on enquiry. A fully catered, 20km, 2 day, 2 night walk encompasses the whole of the Mataia Farm and includes accommodation at Mataia Homestead & at the Farm Cottage, bag transfers, and loads more. A shorter 1 day, 1 night 12km walk gives a good snapshot of the farm and conservation area and includes accommodation at Mataia Homestead, and full catering. Please get in touch for more information.

Special conditions: A standard 2 night minimum stay applies. Single nights available but compulsory linen and cleaning charges will apply to single-night stays depending on numbers.

  • Mataia Homestead is an absolute treasure

    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.

    Lovely location, gorgeous walks, warm fire, plenty of rooms! Only thing was that we couldn't get mobile reception and the main phone in the house wasn't working but I'm sure this has been rectified :-). Would stay here again in a flash and thoroughly recommend it to others.

    Fantastic location but if you have a requirement for WiFI or Cellular access then a little bit of pre planning is required

  • We enjoyed a wonderful restful and special weekend at Mataia

    We enjoyed a wonderful restful and special weekend at Mataia. We were a group of 8 people and had so much space to relax, rest, walk and reflect. Excellent amenities with a personal touch. The gardens, grounds and history of the place is unique and meaningful. This is a very special house and fantastic place to visit. Thank you very much!
