The house can be rented purely as an accommodation, a base from which to explore the Matakana Region, and we’ll just leave you to it, or it can accommodate individuals who book in for one of the workshops we provide.

The renovated 100 year old homestead, built from rough-sawn Kauri off the land has a sweeping sun-drenched veranda perfect to enjoy summer breakfasts on or for those languid gin-soaked evenings. Lovingly curated by stylist Kate Arbuthnot, and featured in lifestyle magazines and books, the house comprises four bedrooms and three bathrooms and can host up to 9 people.

To enquire about booking please send us a message via the form at the bottom of the page.
