Why Helen Sheat chose Whangaripo
We fell in love with Matakana, the bush and so many beaches in close proximity. Plus its a very 'Arty' area and it is great to see what people are creating and be part of that.

What a wonderful secluded spot. Great for a quite weekend away.
A lovely lond weekend
We had a lovely long weekend here, made better by a fabulous storm, experienced from the spa pool! The location is secluded but close enough to Matakana to enjoy the market and everything else on offer. Highly recommend cycling the community trail from matakana to Omaha and Point Wells. The best thing about Tui Barn was we could take our dogs on a wee holiday too. Thanks, Helen!
Really enjoyed my stay. Needed a little break where I did have to meet anyone else's need for a couple of days and the property provided just that opportunity - peace and privacy. The spa was a big plus.
I'll be back
Great little place for a weekend to visit Matakana and Parkiri beach. Accommodation was exactly as advertised. A little problem with the spa on the first night but Helen kindly provided a lovely bottle of local red wine which was very much appreciated! The spa was great the next night!
Tui Barn peaceful place
Hosts were super helpful and informative!
Tui Barn was a cute little cottage to stay - was a little cold but would be perfect for a summer stay!
It was the perfect base for our tripping around we stayed two nights and the restaurant recommendations front Helen were spot on!
Cosy and private.
Great little batch, great location to explore the area. Would definitely come back.
Based close to Leigh Marine park (Goat Island)for snorkelling and diving and multiple beautiful local beaches. Multiple wineries can be visited individually or on tours. There is a focus on local art galleries, Morris and James Pottery also within the area.
Unique boutique cinema within Matakana village is well worth a visit.
