“We loved our stay at The Matchbox! Even though we got there quite late, check-in was super easy with detailed instructions. Heaters were turned on for us ahead of our arrival and everything was perfectly set. In the next morning, we woke up to the sound of the many birds in the area - including a family of Pukekos jumping from roof to roof. The view from the room is amazing. Glen and Jon were lovely hosts, even taking the time to show us their own tiny house around, after we mentioned we were thinking on getting one. We'd definitely stay again!”
