Lo spazio
The House and Surrounding Area: -
Enjoy this very comfortable 3-bed family house, set in extensive grounds, with nearly 3 acres of paddocks and mature native bush.

A totally private oasis with security gates for a relaxing break, yet only 4 mins. to Matakana Village, with a FourSquare, many great restaurants and cafes, coffee shops, 3 great bakeries, awesome butcher, pharmacy, wine shop, and of course, the famous Matakana Farmers Market on a Saturday morning. (Do get there early to get the best produce!)

With 7 beds, the house is perfect for families and small groups of friends and is also cosy for a couple having a precious weekend away together.

You are minutes from the village, but far from the traffic and crowds on a no-exit road.

As well as the village, you are close to some of the finest beaches in New Zealand, with Tawharanui one of the best, set on a huge pest-free reserve. Omaha beach best for long walks at all tides, and Baddeley’s Beach is shallow for a good ways out, perfect for wee ones.

You’ll walk first into the huge main living/dining room, with high ceiling, floor to ceiling windows, and a very efficient woodstove, with fire lighters, pinecones and lots of firewood beside it to enjoy the fire.

(Once fire is lit, you can touch screen (bottom left corner of small screen) on controller beside door in kitchen leading to hall, to activate the heat circulation system into the bedrooms and TV room.)

Eating, Dining & Cooking: -
There is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need for preparing food, cooking and eating, many condiments like oil, vinegar etc., with a range of cookbooks for inspiration before you head to the Matakana Market on Saturday for the freshest produce.

If you are eating out, “Ravish” has the best coffee, Leigh Café great for their famous fish and chips. There are many local vineyards for tastings, and lunch at either Brick Bay or The Sculptereum is always a winner, both are great venues and serve excellent food and wine. (You’ll find more suggestions in the “Guidebook” area of the AirBnb listing)

Eating at home, there is a kettle, plunger with fresh ground coffee, selection of teas, and milk for you, with a whole fridge & freezer for just your use, plus dishwasher and large washing machine and drying rack.

Centrepiece of the dining area is the very large and totally unique craftsman-made dining table made from 400-year-old Scottish oak, with six antique chairs, with iconic feature light above.

Help yourself to anything from the established vege. gardens for meals. You will find salad greens, herbs, etc.

You can cook with an electric wall oven, modern gas hob, and microwave. There is also a large “Green Egg” charcoal BBQ on the deck, with fire-lighters, charcoal and smoking chips beside it for ease.

There is a further, separate toilet.


Entertainment: -
For your entertainment, there are 2 large flatscreen high-def. TV’s for the whole family.

TV room has a large flatscreen smart TV linked to internet, with sound bar and subwoofer. Terrestrial TV channels, and Apple TV with our Netflix account logged in for your enjoyment, plus TVNZ OnDemand, You Tube etc. You can also beam other content like Sky from your iPhone to the Apple TV if you have the relevant app. Airplay name for TV is “Big Room”. Note:- You won’t be able to use the Remote app. on your IPhone, and will need to use the physical Apple TV remote provided.

The other large TV in main room also has an Apple TV (HDMI 1) with Netflix logged in for you, or you can use your own login, and also has a Blue-ray DVD player (HDMI 2), with some DVDs provided, including a great kids’ selection. Curl up on the large soft sofa in the warmth and watch a movie together, or put a DVD on for the little ones while you cook.

(You can use your own Apple ITunes login on either Apple TV to watch Apple movies. Airplay name is “Apple TV Main Room”.)

For music, there is a Bluetooth speaker beside TV in main room, connect to “ UE ROLL 2”

On the shelves beside this TV are books to read, and Board games, with toy box for the little ones.


Outside: -
The house is set above several large paddocks looking towards extensive native bush that provides real privacy. Our “pretty mowers”, a small flock of pet sheep, led by Baz the ram and Dot the matriarch provide a great backdrop, and whilst they are fully self-sufficient, they do love the odd mandarin!

Please note, there is a retaining wall in front of lawn, with a drop to paddocks, which makes the house not suitable for very small children, however we’ll leave that to your discretion. (You will see this clearly in the last photo on the listing)

There are our 4 runner ducks, guinea fowl and chickens in paddocks, who always like any spare crusts.

In the extensive mature gardens, there are lime and lemon trees, please help yourself to one for your evening “sun-downer”

In summer months, a fully-fenced 18,000 litre infinity plunge pool, which is totally private and overlooks the native bush, is great for cooling off, with sun loungers and cushions to top up your tan. Note, the pool is not heated or valeted during winter and autumn, so only really suitable for summer months, during which time it will be valeted as well.

Also on the deck is a large outdoor fire to sit around with a wine, with grill and pan for fun outdoor cooking, whilst the kids roast marshmallows.
