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 on request but extra charges will apply.

  • This house exceeded expectations! The photos dont do it justice

    This house exceeded expectations! The photos dont do it justice. A beautiful house, full of character and history, with equally beautiful gardens. We didn't want to leave! We would highly recommend the walking tracks available. Thank you for making our trip so memorable!

  • The property speaks for itself really - it's a beautiful historic homestead...

    The property speaks for itself really - it's a beautiful historic homestead with literally acres of space and no other houses in sight. There's wildlife, walks, gardens and even a lily pond. Our group was blown away. There was plenty of room for us to play backyard cricket during the day, with a large deck area looking out to rolling countryside for our barbeque in the evening. As the organiser of our trip I got a lot of pats on the back for finding such outstanding accommodation!
