Bach or holiday home, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)
I'm originally from Timaru and Mark was born in the UK but lived in many cities around the world and in NZ (an RAF brat). We have been living in Auckland for 23 years and have 2 daughters (Emily and Imogen). We like outdoor sports and love our dog and cat (Aly and Skat).
Owner purchased this House in 2010
Why Owner chose Leigh
We fell in love with the house and the area some 7 years ago. At the time we were looking around Matakana but buying and living in Leigh is we think much nicer with a great community feeling. This house is unique and like living in a tree house.
What makes this House unique
Private salt pool which looks out to the sea. Sea views from every bedroom and all living areas. The house has a log burner and we supply the wood. There is a grass area in the front and a walkway down to the bay side.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Up on the rock
Lovely house both inside and out. Big pool and nice surroundings. Bedding and towels are charged extra which is quite unfair. No wifi.
It is clear in the instructions that wifi is not supplied and bedding is an extra fee. The reason is it takes our cleaner time to collect linen from Matakana (1 hr return) and make up beds. Plus the hire fee.
Hope you come again.. Lynley
Fabulous house, fabulous location
We had an amazing time staying here. The swimming pool is amazing, the house is well cared for and well-laid out and has everything you need.We found that the rumpus room is down separate outside stairs so we couldn't let our 6 and 9 year old kids sleep down there. They would have loved to but we all enjoyed the foosball.
Poor dirty house completely disinterested owner with very bad communication and no desire to resolve
Our group of 5 sisters and nieces were collectively disgusted by how dirty and poorly cleaned this house was. It is in such a lovely setting and we enjoyed that aspect very much..I complained to the owner lynley about the dirty house and while initially responding this was not ok and she would look in to it she failed to do so and was clearly completely disinterested in repairing or even adequately communicating with me..:( after paying over lots of money we expected a clean house..not filthy floors carpet and kitchen including someone else's fat congealed tray in the oven..very disappointed will not stay again or recommend
Stunning location. Well kept, clean and lovely property
The house was in a great location with lovely views and good access to the water.
The house was in a great location with lovely views and good access to the water. However, we felt that the property was a bit tired and in need of an update, particularly given the amount we were paying. There were also a few minor details that the owner could address quite easily, such as the lack of wine glasses (there were just a few plastic ones) and providing a hair dryer. They could also replace the washing machine which wasn't working properly.
Great location with lovely sea views from all rooms.

Plenty to do around Leigh and Matakana. It is a well known tourist spot.
