    It's a lovely, rustic barn, so lovely for small families, or responsible people with dogs as beach has protected areas for bird wild life. The beach has all hour access for dogs and is beautiful and serene. My advice for easy traveling to Pigeon House is to go via Matakana and go left at roundabout not via Leigh. It's of similar distance but feels less on Matakana Valley Road. Thanks Gill and Alan and see you in 2015 and happy NY!. (:
