A modern, self-contained loft, separate from main house, overlooking a tranquil garden. Perfect for 2, pleasant walks and spectacular beaches are close by. Lively Matakana and all its amenities are a 5 minute drive. You can bike if you prefer, there are excellent cafes 10 minutes away and its an easy ride to Omaha. A great base for exploring the region.

Nicely furnished with a dining table and chairs, sofa and TV with a USB port (bring your own movies on a data stick!). Wifi is available, but can drop out on occasion. The code is available in the accommodation. There is a very comfortable queen bed with fresh linen. The accommodation is north facing, light and sunny. There is heating for a cosy Winter stay. You can enjoy pleasant views over the garden to the hills with a glimpse of the river. Downstairs is a shower with towels supplied, toilet, parking and space to put your canoes or bicycles if you require. We have a couple of older bikes and a canoe that you can also use. Please contact me if you would like further information or have specific requests.
Point Wells has the best of all worlds. It is a small, friendly harbourside village. Our accommodation is 5 minutes walk from the water, good for sailing. There is a beautiful surf beach close by and numerous spectacular coastal walks. Basic and upmarket supermarkets and cafes are nearby.
  • Lovely place. Very peaceful and close to the beach. Happy times :-)

  • Awesome place, had everything it said it did. Host was very nice and sent all the details we needed ahead of time. Would recommend

    Shane2016-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Very quiet and private as well as being warm and comfortable. Robyn was very friendly and helpful, and gave us good information about the area. Very good setup.

    Rob & Colette2015-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Point Wells and loved the accommodation. The studio is beautifully appointed and spacious.

    Steph2016-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in very close proximity to Matakana Town Centre and The Stables wedding venue. Liam the dog is awesome too!

    Anisha2018-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely 3 night stay in Robyn's apartment - it was very comfortable, spacious, and clean. The location in Point Wells was perfect for exploring the area = not too far to drive to Matakana for dinner and the cinema, over to Tawharanui for walks with takahe, to Leigh for snorkelling at Goat Island, and lots of other nice beaches for swims. If we're ever in the area, we'd love to stay again.

    Naomi2016-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Everything went well. Nice place, nice hosts! The apartment is pretty and very tidy. Again every time!

    Thorsten2016-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely comfortable studio in quiet area. We only stayed one night and didn't get the chance to meet Robyn but she made the whole process very easy. Enjoyed looking out the window at the beautifully maintained garden. Exactly like photos. Very clean and organised.

  • The studio is surrounded by nature and separate from the house which makes it a perfect place if you like your privacy. Miranda and James are lovely hosts and they made sure I was very comfortable. I really enjoyed staying at this place while exploring the Matakana area.

    Brigit2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time exploring Leigh, Matakana, and the surrounding area and Miranda's place was a great base for us to do this from.

    Cam2018-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Miranda's place was fantastic - clean and with special touches such as chocolates (not to mention their friendly dog Zsa Zsa as a welcomer!). I can see why Miranda is a super host - even had a lovely wine and catch up with her. Would thoroughly recommend Miranda's studio. Thank you.

    Michelle2018-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Miranda’s place is super close to Matakana village & The Sawmill brewery. She was very friendly & quick to respond and Zsa Zsa was lovely. The place itself is small but clean & has nice small touches like truffles, milk & coffee.

    Stephanie2018-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Miranda was lovely and 'The Studio' was a great space with a beautiful view. Separate from the main house, it felt quiet and secluded but only a short drive to the shops.

    Bonita2017-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, lovely and quiet, beautiful trees all around.

    Johan2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t rate this place or the owners highly recommend enough. The studio is perfect and the owners are so helpful And accommodating especially if you have a wedding. Had a great drink with them and could have stayed boozing with them for the night! Only negative thing was that we only stayed one night.

    Brendan2018-02-09T00:00:00Z

  • Elizabeth is an amazing host! Super fast responses, accurate listing, an incredibly clean and well organised AirBNB - definitely feels like home!

    Tia2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very comfortable and luxurious property. We had three adults in our party and were very comfortable.Lots of high quality decorations add to the property's charm. I couldn't recommend too strongly - and it's located in a beautiful part of New Zealand. Add very hospital hosts and what more could you possibly want?

    John2018-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at the palms, the cottage is adorable and perfect and both bed and sofa bed were super comfy. Elizabeth and Alec were really amazing and really went the extra mile in helping us when we were in a jam. Highly recommend and will love to stay again.

    Carolyn2018-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay for a few days exploring the surrounds. Even though the dwelling is next to owners residence the space is designed well to allow privacy and your own parking. The kitchen is fully equipped which we used one night to cook dinner. Lovely touches such as a candle, breakfast amenities and lush dressing gowns. Lovely decor and brand new - great value for money. We highly recommend!

    Joy2018-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • A very well appointed, quiet and comfy retreat for a couple. Liz really does provide a 5 star service .... everything we needed was thoughtfully supplied .... though an umbrella would have been helpful too given the rain - which we were really happy to have as it's a d drought in most of Australia at the moment!!! Prompt communication demonstrates Liz's experience at hosting. Thanks so much - we would thoroughly recommend this self contained cabin in this semi-rural/vineyards area .... Point Wells is between Matakana and Leigh.

    Gabrielle2018-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay, very relaxing. Hosts were friendly. This place is exactly what it looks like in the photos. Highly recommend it to anyone.

    Nicole2018-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely friendly hosts. Gorgeous bed and linen with electric blankets. So cosy and warm with heatpump to watch All Blacks, Sky Tv was awesome. Super close to everything in the area. Love to come back!

    Ebony And Paul2018-08-19T00:00:00Z

  • The Chapel was a delightful place to kick back and relax and Point Wells is lovely. The accommodation was very well equipped with super comfy beds and although it had TV etc we spent the evenings playing cards and star gazing. Its location is fantastic with the general store and its delicious burgers 50m away, a children's park with old fashioned but fun equipment and the estuary's crystal clear waters a short stroll for a very refreshing dip. Highly recommended!

    Tess2015-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Chapel was a wonderful place to stay, full of character, comfortable beds and relaxing. The photos are accurate. There is a great, warm heat pump for the winter. Overall a lovely time away.

    Aimee2015-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying in a former church - we didn't even burst into flames upon entry! It's a cute little spot in a quiet neighbourhood, with easy access to beaches and vineyards. Will definitely consider staying again.

    Sebastian2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing weekend at the Chapel! The place is very clean and tastefully decorated. There's everything you need for cooking a nice meal and enjoy it outside on the deck. Walking distance to the beach and close to very beautiful locations like Goat Island, Matakana, etc. You must have the fish and chips from the General Store, it's amazing! We highly recommend to stay at the Chapel!

    Isabelle2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Such an awesome place to stay we absolutely loved it! Will be back!!

    Charlotte2016-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely amazing time staying at Andrews place! The house was much larger than we initially thought with a great big kitchen and dining area. We loved the relaxed feel of the place and Andrew was extremely accommodating! The kayaks and monopoly went down a treat as well! Highly recommend this place!

    Charlotte2015-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place. Point Wells is a beautiful hidden beauty of a spot. The Chapel is fantastic. Great facilities. We had a fantastic time and would not hesitate to return.

    A stunning contemporary home with amazing sea views from every room. Our architecturally-designed home makes the most of the superb outlook from one of the highest points in the Auckland Region. Roll aside stacking windows in the open-plan living area to open the interior and enjoy the fabulous indoor-outdoor flow to the huge deck. Or relax with a spa under the stars! Located on a quiet, private 6 acre rural site just 5 minutes from Goat Island in Leigh and 10 minutes to Pakiri beach.
    Please note that the Master suite (with Queen bed) incorporates a mezzanine floor which is counted as the 4th bedroom on our listing (with 2 single beds). So the 3rd and 4th bedrooms are on different levels but not completely sound proof / separate from each other. The other 2 rooms are standard double rooms. The deck is furnished to make the most of outdoor living with a large 6-seater table, an outdoor couch for lounging, and a gas BBQ. And, to top off the relaxation, enjoy a glorious spa under the stars. Aside from BBQs, the fully-equipped designer kitchen, with stone bench tops, gas cooking and dishwasher, along with the extendable (up to 10-seater) dining table provide everything you need for entertaining. Throughout the house, the furnishings are sleek and stylish, complemented by an amazing contemporary art collection with pieces in each room. Timber floors throughout the house lead to the fully-tiled bathrooms complete with walk-in showers, a freestanding tub (with a view of course!) and infinity gas hot water. The master ensuite has underfloor heating. There is also a full laundry w dryer, flat-screen TV (no Freeview or Sky, but lots of DVDs available) with great cell reception on both Vodafone and Spark networks, plus fixed wireless broadband gives excellent 3G internet connectivity for your laptop or mobile devices. For winter stays the house is cosy and warm – the north facing aspect means sun streams in through the double-glazed windows during the day; while a wood burner provides heating in the evenings.
    A very quiet location down a no-exit road, the house is within 10 minutes drive of 3 beautiful beaches - one surf beach (Pakiri), one marine reserve (Goat Island) and one safe-swimming beach (Matheson Bay) as well being just 20 mins from the famous Matakana Markets. All within 80 mins from Auckland CBD.
  • This place is absolutely stunning! A beautiful spot for a memorable evening. Thank you so much. Hope to be back soon!

    Big Omaha, Auckland, New Zealand

    My home is a sanctuary from busy city life. Just a few steps from the sea, at high tide you hear the waves lapping. Listen and you will hear a chorus of bird song. Play tennis or pétanque, go for a walk, kayak (provided) or swim. Ten minutes drive away in one direction is Tawharanui Regional Park with its pristine surf beach, wild life and walks. Ten minutes in the other direction is Matakana with its restaurants, breweries, art galleries, sculpture park, shops, theatres and weekend market.
    The guest wing of the house includes a stylish bedroom with a queen size bed, bedside tables, writing desk and breakfast cabinet with a fridge, kettle and toaster. There is a separate toilet and the small en suite has a shower, fluffy towels and robes for your use during your stay. The lounge/tv/dining room has a beautiful view over the bay and access to 2 decks.
    Baddeleys Beach is a very small, quiet beach at the end of a short sealed road and most of the properties are holiday homes so outside holiday periods it is especially peaceful. There is a large reserve with 2 tennis courts, a petanque court, toilets, picnic tables, a children's playground, and a boat ramp. The beach is tidal with scenery changing by the minute and a multitude of bird life. Swimming is best one hour either side of high tide as is launching a boat. There are several deeper water beaches close by.

    Tawharanui Peninsula, Auckland, New Zealand

    Sit in the spa pool enjoying breathtaking views of Matakana valley in complete seclusion as the sun sets and the stars appear in the sky around you. Dine in nearby Leigh, visit Goat Is or Pakiri beach; all just 1 1/4 hours driving north of Auckland.
    Our guest suite is a separate wing with its own deck and cool bathroom, flat screen TV, WiFi, tea & coffee making facilities, toaster, and fridge. For colder weather the bed is fitted with an electric blanket and there is a heater and blankets. Netflix fans can plug their chromecast into the TV . Double glazing keeps the heat in year round. This space has also been geopathically assessed and given full marks for good energy!
    We are 5 kms along an unsealed road so this area is quiet and peaceful and offers a perfect break for anyone wanting an escape. There are two walking tracks next to the house which take you to Mt Tamahunga or Pakiri village. Mt Tamahunga is on the Te Araroa (Long Pathway) the length of New Zealand. A new walking and cycling track called Big Omaha Trail is 28 kms long and goes from Matakana to Pakiri and best section is down the road from us. We have our own micro- climate here in the hills and it can get chilly and windy as well as sunny and calm. There are also wild animals and we are trapping possums and rabbits. Birds love it here (Tui, Fantail Wood pigeon (Keruru) Swallows, Hawks ,Shining Cuckoos, Turkeys, Pheasants, Quail, Finches) Cattle and sheep frequently leave their fenced paddocks and wander along the road...all of which adds to the magic of this experience. Places to visit include Pakiri beach, Leigh village (eateries are the famous Sawmill Cafe, Sawmill Brewery (just north of Matakana) Leigh Eats or Leigh Bar) picturesque fishing wharf, Goat Island Marine Reserve and Mathesons Bay for swimming and snorkeling. Matakana has the famous Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, cinemas, vineyards and several (breakfast and dinner) cafes and restaurants.
  • Magnificent views from both sides of the place as it is along a ridge. Beautiful vista down to Pakiri. We loved the spa pool looking out over the pine forest. The room was warm, clean, modern. Nice bathroom. Has a fridge and kettle, teas etc. Short drive down to Leigh. The road is quite dark at night, no street lights. We had a very relaxing time there and Rose was a lovely welcoming host.

    Wanda2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot, lovely hosts

    Naomi2018-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a spectacular spot and Rose is wonderful, helpful and accommodating. The view from the spa tub on the deck at night stretches all the way to Auckland. You wouldn't think you could be that far north and still see the city ... but you can. And the views over Pakiri beach and the sea in the other direction are incredible. For those that care, the spa tub is chlorine free ... which was a huge perk for us. We hate chlorine. Excellent spot for a romantic getaway. Highly recommended.

    Garrett2017-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time staying here. Very warm and welcoming hosts. Beautiful views of Pakiri Beach and beyond. Great to see the rugged landscape on a very windy, misty day. Nature at its best! We were also able to checkin early and check out late around the timings of a local wedding we were going to which was really convenient. Thank you so much.

    Jolene2018-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • Rose and Ray thought of everything and made my stay a complete pleasure. They have great taste in decor and one of the most incredible settings possible! Everything was faultless and I ended up staying in more than I went out because with the spa, the books, the coffee, the couch and the view I was set for a relaxing luxurious indulgent break away from it all!! P.S. I didn't even know they were home but when I did leave they invited me in and were extremely welcoming and lovely!! I will be back!!

    Melanie2018-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice room and facilities. Unfortunately it was raining and misty for my stay so I couldn't see the view. I made the mistake of coming from the airport after arriving from the UK. Big detour on my way up North. I arrived late and had no Internet to message my hosts. They were understanding which I appreciated. They were on their way out and I had assumed (mistake again) that they'd be home all eve. Reviews saying how friendly they were encouraged me to book. So sorry to miss my hosts, which was due to my late arrival. Anyway... Very comfortable night but with better planning id have driven straight to Whangerhai.

    Jac2016-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely wonderful weekend escape. Everything was catered for beyond expectations, beautiful setting very serene and stunning views. Definitely recommend!!!

  • A lovely and comfortable spot for a weekend stay. Andrew was a very helpful and responsive host.

    Amanda2018-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Andrew is a lovely host and was always easy to deal with whenever we had any questions. We had a really wonderful stay at his Point Wells house. It was great for our big family, walkable to all holiday amenities ie, park/courts/playground, swimming and most importantly the shop right next door for coffee, takeaways, general supplies and most importantly iceblocks for the kids! Had a great private garden and deck for everyone to hang out in. Omaha was also a very short drive away. Would happily recommend Andrew and his place to anyone looking for a place in Point Wells!

    Anna2017-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious. Great for a family. Well kept and grounds are well kept.

    Sandeep2017-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Due to unforeseen circumstances requiring us to return to Auckland, our group wasn't actually able to stay at Andrew's place, however his communication throughout the whole process was outstanding. Having stayed at Sweet 16 before we were disappointed to not get to spend time at our favourite spot in Pt Wells, but am sure we will be back some time soon!

    Fuchsia2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our Family enjoyed our time at Andrew's place. It has basically what you need for a nice time (although a gas bottle with gas would have been great for the BBQ - ended up cooking inside), All in all though we found it comfortable and met the needs of our weekend away.

    Melinda2018-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Clean tidy, well set out and a great host, would recommend!

The view was fantastic, it was great to wake up to every morning. The continental breakfast was quite satisfying. We would definitely come here again when we next need to escape the city!

    Nicola2014-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had an amazing stay at Helen's B&B - it was so neat and tidy with amazing views of the ocean. Helen had also gone to so much effort to make us feel at home, including packing some amazing homemade muesli and an array of delicious breakfast items into the fridge. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to again in future! The perfect place to relax :)

    Jessica2016-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice stay in an apartment with wonderful views in a quiet and lovely residential area. The apartment is well equipped, has much light and spacious. Helen and Geoff are very nice hosts and so we had a wonderful stay. Highly recommend. Thanks very much!

    Carsten&Selda2016-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Helen and Geoffs B&B is in a very quiet area with a breathtaking view over the sea. The unit is very cozy and comfy with a very good bed, a perfect bathroom and enough food in the fridge for a very good breakfast. Before we arrived we got exact details from Helen how to find her place via email. She gave us a very warm welcome. We enjoyed our stay!!

    Majka2016-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great ocean views and an easy walk to the center of the Leigh. The apartment was beautiful with gorgeous gardens. We enjoyed the walk along the shore and meeting some of the local folks at Leigh Bar.

    Amy2016-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • The host- Helen was very welcoming and accommodating. I had gone to dive at goat island and could only get back by 2pm and the host was very kind to agree to late checkout. The property has a great location and also the hosts stock up the fridge and kitchen with food for the ease of the tenant. The bedroom has sea facing view. Overall great property and an awesome airbnb experience.

    Bhavin2015-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice host, giving us complete privacy. The location is amazing, great view from bedroom or lounge, very quite peaceful location and very specious rooms, storage and bathroom with a tub, will try to come back in summer. All facilities, amenities as mentioned. Also all detail available about near by places and small friendly notes.

    Leigh, Auckland, New Zealand

    Tranquil and relaxed getaway in a pristine New Zealand Native forest Setting. A short three minute stroll beneath a canopy of beautiful bush to find this secluded hideaway overlooking farmland and dramatic hills beyond.
    This comfortable space adorned with mid century furniture including record player and homeware is a home away from home for you to relax and unwind. Wander the myriad of tracks that crisscross the bush to find quiet spaces to read or just sit and think. Soak in the cedar hot tub under the massive ancient Puriri trees listening to the Morepork, Tui and Kereru (giant native wood pigeon). Enjoy the fantastic local walks close by, visit a vineyard or two or ride a horse along Pakiri beach. If you just want to relax, pop a steak on the BBQ by the outdoor fire or just snuggle up in bed and watch movies on your very own super wide projection screen. Extra friends are $75NZD each.
    There are loads of things to do in the area. Beautiful white sandy beaches, art galleries, boutique cinema, vineyards and a multitude of wonderful places to eat and relax.
  • The location is incredible! We thoroughly enjoyed our couple of nights away from the city. The hot tub and Japanese bath were highlights as we went during a colder time. We actually felt that the cold weather added to the experience as we enjoyed building fires and cozying up inside. If you are wanting a few days of rest and relaxation this is the place for you. Mark and Sue were great hosts and we would definitely consider going back.

    Chesa2017-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely Magical. The hot tub in the rainforest, the bed, the fireplaces, the outdoor shower, the old school records, the fresh eggs and tomatoes, and all the little quaint touches. Our weekend couldn't have been any better, thank you to Mark & Suzie.

    Emily2016-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • The best Airbnb we have ever stayed in! Very secluded but still close to Matakana. A spa in the middle of bush was a unique experience and waking up to a view of the valley was the best way to start the day. The homemade bread and fresh eggs were well appreciated. Thanks for having us! The hosts were friendly and showed us around when we arrived. They ensured our stay was private but we're happy to help and had some great recommendations.

    Anna2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • A really lovely and relaxing place to stay. Mark & Sue have created a beautiful place on the edge of the bush with everything you could want. You're also close to everything that Matakana has to offer. Would highly recommend! Unfortunately we had no water for the second night. I understand that this was out of Mark & Sue's control but is pretty disappointing when you're paying to stay somewhere and can't use all the great features of the place let alone have a shower.

    Laura2017-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, what an amazing place in an amazing location! I stayed here with my husband after we got married for our 'mini-moon' and it was the prefect getaway for us to unwind after the wedding. The decor is so beautifully 70s with a very tasteful and inviting feel. Mark provided us with fresh bread, eggs and bacon for our stay and a bottle of bubbles as a congrats, a very nice touch :) The location is so secluded and romantic, no curtains needed as you are immersed in bush and extremely private. We loved the outdoor bathroom with the beautiful wooden bath under the trees and stars! We loved the indoor fireplace and the record player with great records! Cat Stevens will now forever remind us of our newly wed days in Matakana :) We loved the whole place down to the smallest details and I could go on for a while but I'll just leave the review here with saying that our first few days of married life were very special in this place and we won't forget it any time soon!

    Mandy2016-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • I had 5 nights to write and create. Excellent property, a real sense of being off the grid with all the benefits of one of the best foodie small towns of New Zealand. Marks a great bloke, and the property was just as described. A perfect little creative space to read, write and work. Incredible second outdoor bathroom and bush setting. All the amenities required. Highly recommended!

    Joel2018-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • A little slice of paradise! If you are after a place to relax and unwind, then this is the place. Wonderful kitted out BnB with those extra special touches, everything is thought of. Matakana and the surrounding areas are close by to visit. A truely wonderful experience to be surrounded by Bush and hear the calls of NZ Native Birds, thank you for sharing your special little Gem

    Rachelle2018-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend this stunning bush retreat! The hosts are lovely, great communication and a nice touch of leaving us a few breakfast supplies. The house is very cosy with a fire and peaceful country view. Love the bush walk to get to the house and the outdoor bath. Perfect for a couples getaway to Matakana.

    Sebastien2017-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here. Everything was just as described, and Patricia was very welcoming. Her cabin is so peaceful. Matakana is a lovely place - if you get the chance make sure you catch a film at the local cinema and visit the impressive Farmer's Market. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

    Karan2016-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed our stay in the Willow (Website hidden by Airbnb) handy to everything.. Totally recommend.

    Jenny2017-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Patricia made us feel very welcome. The cabin was set in a perfect position beneath the weeping willows, keeping it nice and cool during the sunny days. It was super cute and perfect for what we needed. Fabulous outdoor shower. Great central location in Matakana. Patricia even brought us fresh fruit from her garden. We'll be back!

    Cynthia2018-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is beautiful, quiet, and amazingly clean! The kitchen and bathroom were stocked with all necessities, and the windows look out to a beautifully maintained farm. Hans and Jillian were so thoughtful and turned on the heater for us before we arrived as it was a chilly night. I strongly recommend this for a quiet vacation. Also - definitely use the direction guide they’ll send you after you book, (Hidden by Airbnb) maps will take you the wrong way.

    Amy2018-08-12T00:00:00Z

The noise level was minimal which was one of my worries but it turned out just fine! Be assured though you can smell fish and chips and oil frying (whether this is a plus or a minus for you haha). Highly recommend it as it is nice and clean and close to all amenities and lovely beaches! :)

  • We had 4 adults in our party and we all fitted in nicely. Everything necessary was provided including yummy breakfast food. Location was close to Matakana and Omaha so ideal for our needs. Hosts were friendly but left us to our own devices and there was a nice little patio at the back.

    Deb2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a cosy, gorgeous home with beautiful homely touches. We would both definitely stay again. Very spacious. Lots of fun games and books to read. Great location so close to the Matakana markets on Saturday and beautiful Omaha beach and tawharanui regional park. Easy to cycle around and there are bikes also which we used. Lucie and her partner are so friendly warm and welcoming and made the experience even better, and gave us local tips. What lovely memories we made :)

    Eleanor2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lucie is a fantastic host - friendly but not intrusive. Great recommendation from her about the Sawmill Smoko Room - wonderful food along with the awesome beer tasting experience. Even though it pretty much rained incessantly during our stay, we had a wonderful time exploring the area - having such a lovely place to come back to and relax playing games was a big plus. Clean, comfortable, spacious accommodation with many lovely unexpected touches - would unreservedly recommend!

    Helen2018-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We were made to feel so welcome by Lucie and Chris - they are fantastic hosts. The Loft really is a great place to relax and explore the local area. It felt spacious being split over two levels, very clean and the bed is incredibly comfortable. We really enjoyed the lovely big bowl of fresh fruit and other breakfast items. Thanks for lending us the bikes to explore the local area - we would highly recommend the pottery cafe as a place to stop. We had a wonderful break and hope to return one day.

    Morten2016-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and very cool set up, host was awesome with breakfasts also there

    Ben2018-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great space with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Lucie (and her husband) were lovely and considerate in thinking of our kids with supplying an array of super fun toys/games and also safety within the space by installing a gate at the top of the stairs all of which made our stay alot easier. The location is great! Super close by car to all the great spots the coast and village have to offer...a bit far to walk however there is a lovely estury within walking distance which on high tide was nice for the kids to paddle and on low tide to crab hunt Also a lovely playground and great fish and chip shop. Although not a walk to the surf beachs it really didnt feel far and probably more family friendly away from all the hoards anyhow. It was a lovely weekend and we will definately be back!

    Samantha2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our weekend break in Wells Point with a 2yo. The Loft is well set up and beautifully presented. Loads of great beaches, quiet walks, mini train sets and wonderful market. Lucie was incredibly helpful and most accommodating, a wonderful host.

  • This is such a wonderful place to stay. The house is well set out, with a full kitchen that made cooking really easy, a wood fire that kept the entire place cosy and lovely bedrooms that are so quiet! The deck was a wonderful place to have a morning coffee or a meal overlooking the little lake. The outdoor baths were a standout, you can feel the stress melt away and on a clear night the stars are spectacular. Sally is a fantastic host, very responsive and really goes the extra mile to make your stay great.

    Asher2018-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sally's place is simply stunning. The cottage is gorgeous and very well appointed with lots of little special touches like soaps, fresh flowers, cookies and bubbles especially for our anniversary. The place was very quiet and private. Great location for Warkworth, Sandspit, Matakana and the beautiful surrounding beaches. Communication with Sally was fantastic. Would definitely recommend.

    Fleur2018-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Stylish home in lovely rural setting. Sally was a charming host.

    Paul2018-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, great service, Sally has been extremely helpful.. Would definately stay again :)

    Nick2018-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Sally and Rick ... thank you for hosting us. The cottage is a delight and being able to enjoy a glass of wine in a soothing bath was just what the body required. Until next time, best wishes. Jo and Greg.

    Greg2018-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lotus Cottage is an oasis of stylish tranquility. The cottage is thoughtfully laid out to make it feel relaxing and as welcoming as the hosts. Sally and Rick were very communicative and accommodating, and we had a nice conversation with each as we were settling in, and then they left us to our own devices. It begs for a bigger party, sunset dinners with candles lit and laughter all around. My favourite features were the pond, of course, and the little meditation house on it. The ducks, pig and sheep were a delightful addition as well, and we had a great time toodling about on the row boat. I loved the outdoor baths as well, what a way to end the day! The deck was great, and I loved the hanging candle holder over the dining table. There was a nice looking BBQ , and on summer nights I can just imagine what an incredible space it would be, sitting around the fire pit. The living room is cozy, and looks out onto the deck. The TV isn't massive, but with a view over the pond, and the antics of the ducks who needs a huge tv. The kitchen is small, but well thought out and was a breeze to cook in. I made a Thai green curry, had three of the burners going and a heap of chopping to do, and it all went smoothly. The bedrooms were gorgeous, I particularly loved the one with the window seat. The laundry was in the bathroom, which I thought was a little strange, but didn't detract from the enjoyment of the skylight above the shower. The colour scheme is very black and white, which normally isn't my thing, but the decorating included tasteful textures, patterns and pops of colours, that it didn't feel cold or stark, but just stylish and welcoming. If I were to be really nitpicking, there was some accumulated dust and grime, which you could only really see because it showed up on the white. It wasn't really bad, and not a dealbreaker for me, especially in light of how wonderful everything else was. Altogether an amazing B&B.

    Meggie2018-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful stay at sally's place in a beautiful setting! Couldn't have asked for anything more. Everything was well thought of.

    Janice2018-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • We were very impressed by the beautiful location , and the lakes with the ducks right outside the Bach and the outdoor Baths . Highly recommend and Sally was a fabulous Host . regards Carl Watkins

    Comfortable room, friendly and homely with interactive hosts happy to show you the area and what is locally available,ie: water sports, swimming, biking, kayaking, SUPing, sculpture trail, vineyards, local market etc. Or you can simply sit on the deck and soak up the sun.
    The rooms are not large but the beds are and they are very comfortable. You can use the dining room, lounge, kitchen and deck areas. We have three private rooms so you can choose to book others if needed at an additional cost.
    This is a small village, completely flat with one general store which also serves coffees, pies, fish and chips etc. This is 2-3 minute walk from our house. The local swimming beach is just a few minutes walk from our house. There are three playground areas, a pontoon, library, tennis courts etc.
  • Good place to stay. Hosts are really nice and keen on helping with any request. The house/room is clean and confortable. We would recommand it. Enjoy :)

    Valerie2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Carol is the most natural, welcoming hostess; with lovely taste in decor. Her home is charming and very comfortable, with lots of great covered outdoor areas, looking out to a lovely garden area. There are some beautiful walks around the estuary and park to be had,with access just up the street from the house;which is just a couple of minutes drive to the magnificent Omaha beach. Carol can offer you a choice of rooms, either in the house itself, or a sleep-out next to the garage, which has its own big screen TV. I had the use of my own bathroom, with some plush towels on a heated towel rail; and Kerry and Carol were very relaxed about sharing their kitchen. The best thing about my stay was meeting Carol herself, and we had some great chats - she felt like an old friend by the time I left!

    Shirley2017-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great choice Thanks carol

    Paul2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Upon arrival we actually got to choose between 2 rooms. We opted for the one detached from the house, but bathroom and kitchen were still in the main house. We walked to the beach/waterfront, 5 min away and then went to dinner at Sawmill Brewery. The following morning Carol & Kerry made us a lovely breakfast before we continued our journey North. They were very lovely and we would stay here again :)

    Paula2017-10-21T00:00:00Z

    Nestled within an olive grove in one of Matakana's oldest vineyards, this extremely private, self-contained 'off the grid' cabin makes a brilliant escape, or base from which to explore the region. Lovingly built from quality materials and completed in late 2016, the Cabin is well-equipped with everything needed for a quiet getaway, including fireplace, floating bed mezzanine, and two sided, wrap-around deck to enjoy the Matakana sun. Search; 'Matakana Vineyard Eco Cabin' on youtube for video.
    The Cabin is a lovely, peaceful space - very private and secluded, hidden in an olive grove at the back of a working organic vineyard. It is entirely solar powered (aside from gas for cooking and heating water), so is completely 'off the grid'. There is a full kitchen with everything you need for cooking. The table and comfortable living area are on the ground level, and there is a ladder that you climb up to get to the mezzanine level, where the bedroom is. The bathroom, with eco friendly composting toilet, and shower are in a separate building, a short 5 metre walk away.
    Matakana has so much to offer, and the Cabin is close to beaches, restaurants, boutique cinemas, breweries, walking trails - and of course wonderful vineyards!
  • I would give this house 10 stars if that were an option. One of the most amazing places I've stayed, it was beautifully decorated, in the most amazing of locations and such nice little touches. I can't wait to stay again.

    Matt2018-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cabin; secluded yet a 5 minute's drive from Matakana Village farmers market, restaurants and cinema. Also a short walk from Plume restaurant but recommend reservations if you'd like to eat there as we found they get booked out with events. Luke was a perfect host leaving us to our own to enjoy the weekend, which we thoroughly did!

    Emily2017-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing little cabin off the grid! We loved the space and the peace and quiet. The perfect place to rest, relax and recover from the outside world. Luke had thought of everything, all the little touches really added to our stay. Will definitely recommend to anyone!

    Christa2018-03-29T00:00:00Z

    Jono2017-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is an authentic eco-cabin to stay in. The place is cosy and welcoming with retro realia and promotes a sustainable and organic environmental philosophy. The host, Luke, has thought of everything from coffee grinder, slippers, extra towels, books and vinyl LPs to play. Perfectly situated in gorgeous vineyard with a log burner to warm up the winter air.

  • We enjoyed our stay very much with its excellent and seven views. It was so nice waking up to such views and we felt so relaxed! Rudi was so helpful with my questions before and during our stay. The house was clean and we had all we needed. It was overally a safe place for our 15 months old who just enjoyed exploring in the new environment :) I would prefer staying at a house to a motel with my little one too. It is close to attractions nearby while feeling out of the hustle and bustle. Thank you so much and we absolutely love the place and would recommend it to anyone!!

    Ada2016-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Our host made us feel very welcome. The house is very well set up and comfortable. And, yes the views are amazing just like it says, although we were unlucky enough to get a foggy day!

    Liz2016-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic large home. Lot's of space & places to make yourself comfortable. Heat pump for sitting area. Comfortable beds, spacious bedrooms. The bedrooms could use a portable heater as it gets quite cold. The heat pump is at the other end of the house. Good bathrooms, nice ensuite shower. Relatively child friendly. GREAT views on a clear day! Secluded, quiet & private but 10 minutes from the pub, fish & chips & dairy in Leigh. We would definitely stay here again!

    The glamping movement is growing, and it’s not showing signs of slowing down. Glamping is a a fusion of glamour and camping, where nature meets modern luxury. Connected by wooden walkways we have set up three tepee sites on large circular timber platforms, hovering over native rushes and grasses at the bottom of our 1.1 ha property. Surrounded by pine and native trees, Tepee's setting invites you to unwind, unplug and re-connect with nature. A true Glamping experience.
    Our tents are fitted out with quality beds, duvets and pillows, pure cotton linen, luxury shower towels and solar powered LED lights. Camping toilet and shower facilities are close by. Using renewable and sustainable resources is a great part of Tepee. A healthy breakfast bowl is included in your stay, for which we source organic produce from local suppliers and our takeaway cups and containers are compostable and made from plants- Yep plants! The two single beds can be pushed together into one King size bed. Please let us know, which sleeping arrangement you prefer.
    We are a five minute drive away from Matakana village and ten minutes from Omaha beach. The Matakana Coast is beautiful- From great beaches, beautiful vineyards, amazing restaurants and outdoor and watersport activities, there is something for everyone! We also operate award-winning Blue Adventures, a local watersports school. Look us up online, to book an activity with us.
  • Very novel idea, fits well for the lovely setting and would be the perfect get away for couples! The breakfast was delicious

    Aimee2018-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! What a golden find. Incredible little cute setting surrounded by nature. Stayed two nights with my partner while working close by. Perfect setting and great hospitality from Nina and her husband. 100% better than your average bedroom or hotel. Lay back, sip wine, stargaze. Will be back again as in the area regularly. Thank you.

    Joey2018-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay. A really fun unique experience. Great to be able to travel with our dog and he enjoyed meeting your kitten. Easy drive to Goat island, craft brewery ( although don’t allow dogs). And plenty of other great spots. Didn’t know you offered so many other water sport activities, maybe next time. Thank you and best of luck with 2018.

Breakfast was amazing (even inspired my fiancée to make her own version) 10/10 would recommend and would love to come again!

    How many places in New Zealand, or even the world, can offer your own private universe for two overlooking a stunning waterfall set in its own natural amphitheatre? The Waterfall Hideaway is a romantic oasis where you can escape it all, relax and read in the sun, barbecue the day away, listen to music or just enjoy the soothing sounds of the waterfall. And if you should happen to venture out, Matakana's famous vineyards, farmer's market, sculpture trails and countless beautiful beaches await.
    You are welcome to walk down to the waterfall and spend time in the garden by the river. There is also your own private river stone patio outside the Hideaway.
  • Very cosy romantic spot overlooking the bush from bedroom window with access down to a private waterfall and river, we saw native birds and popped right next door to the organic cafe in morning for fresh coffee. Only 5 minutes to matakana markets on Saturday too! Very pleasant and our privacy was respected in the space.

  • I booked this as a getaway for my parents - they loved it and Kim was absolutely fantastic. Would recommend!

    Lily2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy, warm and comfy studio for a night in the country :)

    Nicole2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great! Thank you, Kim.

    Mohi2017-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great little spot and Kim was very helpful.

    Hamish2018-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Communication from Kim was perfect. Detail but not intrusive and little touches like chocolates fruit and brownies. The highlight is obviously the waterfall but the apartment itself has rustic "vintage" style. Was very comfortable and you can't beat being lulled to sleep by the waterfall. A great base for matakana if you don't mind being a drive from all the attractions. Would definitely recommend on this basis

    Kevin2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • The Waterfall hideaway has the perfect balance between seclusion and access to the region . The relaxing sound of the waterfall and a comfortable bed where a real bonus . Great hosts , I will be back again .

    Lance2017-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Kim was very helpful and prompt in her responses to my queries. The place was warm, clean and tidy. The view of the waterfall was breathtaking.. the door and windows of the place open up to this wonderful scenery.. nature in its purest form and beauty. You can get a closer look at the waterfall by walking down to the small garden further down the property. I am already planning my next trip!

  • My daughter and I loved our break away from the city at Liz's B & B! It was all that we had hoped for - cosy and warm with a lovely view of the surrounding countryside. Just the right amount of interaction with our host - the apartment is appropriately located and separate from our host's home. The fresh, warm croissants were a nice touch in the morning. Left Matakana feeling refreshed after only one night away from the city :)

    Christine2016-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic view! Beyond my expectations. Place was perfect for a private get away as it has private bathroom and access. Lovely and peaceful and would definitely recommend

    Ann2018-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Nice amenity in a very good location very clean tidy and well organised

    Gary2018-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • As a family of three with an active three year old finding a good value, clean and child friendly place to stay is hard to come by. This place ticked all of the boxes for us and we had a great stay in Matakana. Stuart and Karen responded quickly to us and were friendly on arrival. Even though they live in the house above the accommodation we barely heard them. We would recommend staying here and would stay here again.

    Samantha2018-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, clean and tidy. Thanks for the overnight stay.

    Our Boathouse is in the garden & harbour village of Point Wells close to the surf of Omaha Beach, Matakana Village plus much more. Set in an acre of grounds by the water you get the best of all worlds. The Boathouse is great for couples/family & consists of; separate bedroom - queen bed, an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen space with queen bed at one end & bathroom. The kitchen has a microwave, small oven & hot plate. Sliders open onto a sunny deck with views. The entrance is separate & private.
    We live in a truly magic place by the Whangateau Harbour. Looking out over the water to the hills at Ti Point, listening to the birds and soaking up the quiet makes this place a real haven. The Boathouse makes for a fabulous get away whatever the season or whatever the reason - wedding, city getaway, tourist stop over, family holiday. The space is private and relaxing but close to every amenity you might need as well. Everything at your doorstep.
    Point Wells is a fantastic village with great swimming, kayaking, boating and fishing within a 5 minute walk. There are playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball hoop, and a large field space for soccer etc. 10 minutes away by car is the stunning golden sands of Omaha surf beach and bird reserve. Leigh and Goat Island Marine Reserve are 20 minutes north. Tawharanui beach and predator free bird reserve is 40 minutes away and is an absolute must visit. If shopping is more your scene Matakana Village is a 5 minute drive and you can fossick at the Farmers Market on Saturdays and the craft Market on Sundays. There are restaraunts, cafes, breweries, wineries a plenty and art galleries to explore. You will never have trouble finding something to do in this area!
  • Jane and her husband where very welcoming and you immediately felt relaxed. The perfect hosts i thought, showed us everything we needed to know and even shared a few great spots to visit during our stay. It was the perfect location for us only 5 mins from Matakana and only a short drive to Omaha and Goat Island. I will definitely be coming back to stay again

    Tereza2016-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable, clean and convenient place to stay if you are working in the area Lovely foreshore walkway All good

    Marcus2017-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Well situated and quite place to stay and explore the area. Jane is very helpful and a prompt and precise communicator. You get pretty much exactly what's described. This place is functional rather than flash. Furnishings are a bit tired but beds and sofas comfortable. Bathroom is cramped with a tiny sink and a rather unusual raised shower. The Wi-Fi router is placed too far away, so the signal is weak and sometimes cuts out. We liked our stay very much and recommend this place as long as you understand what you are getting.

    Robert2018-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Jane’s place is clean, welcoming and has a relaxed vibe. This Airbnb is incredibly close to some amazing beaches including Omaha and Pakiri and Goat Island for snorkeling. We’d definitely stop off for a stay with Jane again.

    Tanya2018-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Jane and Graham's. Both were warm and welcoming. Will hopefully stay again in the not too distant future! Highly recommend

    Nick2016-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Jane was a fantastic host, and we loved staying at The Boathouse. Jane gave us a warm welcome and was generous with information about things to do in the area. There was also a folder with some more information and pamphlets from local attractions. The boathouse itself was very tidy, and despite the cold weather was kept warm by heaters. Thanks for having us!

    Liam2018-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jane was a great hostess - very welcoming. The accomodation is as described and a lovely place for a base to explore the area.

    Mary-Jane2016-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • The Boathouse was perfect accommodation and did not disappoint. It was clean, comfortable and yummy beds for a great sleep. We had our 96 year old mother and she loved it too. Jane and Graham were perfect hosts and I enjoyed chatting to them and seeing the renovation plans that had just commenced. The Boathouse made the weekend away even more enjoyable than we had expected. Thanks so much

  • Thank you so much . We came up for a wedding and had a great weekend staying here. Its beautiful, such a stunning and relaxing outlook, lovely sun pouring in in the morning. Very very comfortable place to stay and beautifully decorated, very elegant and lovely finishing touches made for a special weekend get-away. We had everything we needed and so close to town. Absolutely spotless and easy to understand instructions. Thanks for your fast replies and being great hosts. We know where we will stay next time for sure! Perfect!

    Maria2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • We adored our short stay at the Eco Modern Annex, it was faultless! Anna & Dan were great to deal with. They have a gorgeous place, it was spotless, great location, had everything we needed and more (lovely touches). We can't wait to come back :)

    Lucy2018-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • A very very nice family, lovely location with semi-rural view, pleasant safe walk into town. The unit is new, very well presented, and everything that you should need and more. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable, the shower superb, comfortable couch (with sheepskins!). Nice deck for a relaxing coffee or glass of wine early evening. We look forward to staying again.

    David2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, suit quiet retreat and within close range of Matakana amenities.

    Yvonne2017-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Dan and Anna's apartment is exquisite, very tastefully constructed and decorated. It was spotlessly clean with so much thought put into meeting the guests needs and the little things that make a stay extra enjoyable. It was a cosy place to relax with a beautiful view, which we loved. We met Dan and he was super helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again.

    Kate2018-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Anna and Dans place was the perfect spot for a relaxing weekend in Matakana. It was a great size for a couple and had everything we needed. We loved how naturally warm the place was, the bed was so comfortable, stylish interior, beautiful spot to wake up in and we loved the selection of dvds- which we enjoyed watching while eating dinner on our last night. Would love to go back and happily recommend.

    Sophie2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely serene little spot. Warm and cosy. Very clean and enjoyed the extra touches of organic tea and coffee. Love the Citta towels and face cloths! Must get done for myself. Very handy to the village. Really enjoyed our stay.

    On our eco-working farm we offer a 3 bed large room with a separate shared lounge space with fireplace, composting toilet and shower. This is a recycled goat house and furnishings are old and basic. Parking and Wifi available. Guests have access to the tracks on the plant covered property with its secret gardens, stream and night glow-worms can be seen. It is 1km on the unsealed road to the Whangateau harbour and we are a short drive from Goat Island Marine Reserve, Tawharanui and Matakana.
    This place will not suit everyone as we are an organic environmental farm practising natural agriculture and permaculture. The buildings are old and we are slowly upgrading. We have free-range ducks and turkeys. Our place is rustic and basic but we live in a beautiful tree and plant covered environment. There is a small stream, gardens, tracks and forest on the property along with a community earth oven building project -see (URL HIDDEN) or (URL HIDDEN) for farm website. It is a farm so there are unusual odours at times which we cannot control. Also everything is older and we do our best to keep the place clean and tidy. There are bugs and spiders as we do not spray but we try to keep them out of the houses. There are steps into the building. We have many international people staying and we can offer English language tuition and experiential environmental education courses.
    We are close to many beaches, Whangateau Harbour is a 1km walk from the gate. Matakana village and Leigh are equal distances away of 8km. Tawharanui National Park, Goat Island Marine Reserve, Omaha and Pakiri beaches are in the local area also. Warkworth township is 17km.
  • Great palce to spend a night or two. Rustic, with outdoor kitchen and composting toilet. Clean and comfortable with a lovely fire and overall good value for money.

    Catriona2017-03-31T00:00:00Z

    Leon2017-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Audrey was a lovely host and her place was perfect for the kids and us. Also we catched some rainy days there was plenty to explore. Every night Audrey was so thoughtful to lit a fire for us, so coming "home" was very nice and this made our stay really special. We were also happy not having to worry about our kids disturbing anybody else ... except the ducks ;-) Thank you, Audrey!

    Tanja2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
