Cycle or drive 2 kilometres to the 17k long unspoilt fabulous surf at Pakiri Beach from our private green oasis.

Enjoy the outdoor living area amongst the raised vegetable gardens, on the new verandah, sipping local wines and enjoying the restful country views. The holiday accommodation is a 100 year old fruit packing shed transformed into an apartment with loft bedroom (queen bed) and separate bedroom with twin beds downstairs.

There is full but compact kitchen - antique dining furniture - and mix of contemporary and antique living room pieces.

There is contemporary New Zealand paintings and sculpture. The bathroom has grey water systems, solar hot water and dehydrating toilet.

Find a shady spot for a picnic on the property or explore the stream looking for eels, and view native revegetation projects.

20 minutes to Matakana for markets, wineries, resturants, shops, cafes
