Mataia Homestead is a 125 year old 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 gardens, including a large productive vegetable and herb garden and a 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 15 minutes from the small village of Kaukapapa, and equidistant from three townships - Warkworth, Wellsford and Helensville (all within a 30 minute drive).
Special walk packages are also available on enquiry.
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.
