The SpaceKotare Studio is completely private. It has French doors onto a small patio with stunning views of the rural valley and stands of native New Zealand bush. It is north-facing and warm throughout the year. Situated up a private driveway, there is no traffic noise. It is very peaceful. It has a Queen bed with quality cotton bed linen, an ensuite and a fully equipped kitchen. There is a washing machine. Guest AccessThe studio has parking immediately outside with a private entrance into a small courtyard garden. It is separate from the main house and guests are able to come and go as they wish. Interaction with GuestsWe welcome guests on arrival, and at all other times we respect their privacy. We are available to answer questions or to help if there's anything our guests need. The NeighborhoodMatakana, about a 45 minute drive from Auckland's harbour bridge, is an area of great natural beauty. Nearby, we have the Tawharanui Regional Park , Omaha Beach and the marine reserve at Goat Island, which is very popular for snorkelling and diving. The University of Auckland has established a marine education centre there which is open to the public. There are a number of great vineyards too, which are open for cellar tastings and sales. Matakana Village has boutique shops and cinemas and a Saturday farmers' market. Getting AroundThere are buses between Auckland and the nearest township of Warkworth. However, as our property is rural you would need your own transport to stay here. The nearest airport is Auckland International or Domestic. The best way to get here from there would be to take the northern motorway to Puhoi, follow State Highway 1 to Warkworth, then follow signs to Leigh. We are about 5kms past Matakana Village, off the main Leigh Rd. Other Things to NoteKotare is perfect for couples who want to get away to a relaxing, tranquil environment.

We assume you will want to use spa so it will be available for your use. The NeighborhoodWe 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, Falcon,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. Getting AroundYou will need to drive around this area as there is no public transport and we are at the very end of a 5 km unsealed road. Other Things to NoteIf you want isolation, this is your dream place. We are 5 km along an unsealed road and you will see more animals than people. Nearest food is 10 minutes away in Leigh. (so we advise you eat there on way up) Nearest is the famous Leigh Sawmill who do fabulous breakfasts/ brunches from 10.00am as well as dinners most nights. Newly opened Leigh cafe also has breakfasts and great fish and chip/grill choices for lunch or dinner. Leigh bar nearby also serves food and alcohol.

While this water is clean and non-hazardous, it is best to keep young children away from the tank covers and the irrigation lines to prevent damage.
