Description

Relax by the wood burner, walk down the garden path to the Glen Eden river and admire the Tui, Kereru and Fantail in the established trees.

Located just beside our historic school house, the cottage is private and super comfortable with quirky decor and artwork throughout and garden views from every room.

Just around the corner you'll find Charlies Gelato garden, the Matakana markets and superb cinema, The pub, Samill Brewery, Ascension Wine Estate and much more.

Minutes from Omaha beach, Tawharanui and Goat Island marine reserve. Perfect retreat from the city with private access to the river and use of our kayaks. We also have a divine vintage and homewares shop on-site. We provide a selection of tea/coffee/milk/cereal.

Come and rejuvenate at a little corner of paradise.

Special conditions:

Smoking allowed outside only.

Not suitable for children under 12.

2 night minimum applies at all times.

We have lots of animals on the property including our 3 pet dogs. They are very friendly but if you don’t like dogs, this is not the place for you. If you have a chicken phobia (it's a real thing), it’s gonna be a looong weekend!!

Also if you can't manage loft-type stairs (they are a little steep but perfectly formed), it may not be the place for you.

Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: do the dishes before you leave.

    Beautifully presented, lovely touches with the use of knick knacks that are available in the antique shop on the property. Good kitchen facilities, cosy sitting area, lovely quiet bedroom. Close to village. Gelato shop and restaurant within easy walking distance

    the property has charm and location being so close to Matakana itself and thus the surrounding coastline. we really enjoyed being able to use the kayaks to paddle up/down the sisal creek. A highlight! the facilities were good, the bread and eggs a nice touch and the bed really comfortable. A little more attention to tidiness - a sweep here, a window cleaned there and it could be a treasure we would happily recommend to friends as it is a great spot.

    Lovely private self-contained cottage - fresh eggs and fruit provided from the farm. Perfect location for exploring the area - great farmers market at Matakana and wonderful walks in nearby regional parks.

    A great little place which is really well set-up with lots of little extras that make it a bit special - like beautiful linen, real art, cool vintage-y items and a good collection of DVDs. Although it's close to the owners' house we had plenty of privacy, the surroundings are delightful and if you're there on Fri/Sat you get to see Haidee's schoolhouse store with some fab items for sale. The kayak trip down the river was a highlight for us. Highly recommend!
