In the heart of Matakana Village! A tastefully appointed little unit opened Dec 2019. The old wooden gate leads to shops, cinema, bars, restaurants, cafes and the Saturday Farmer’s Market - all a short stroll across the road.
Once the site of a derelict boat shed, we developed the neglected grounds and had the new unit built.
Some history: when joined with the property next door the site was the first Matakana pub, the Settlers’ Hotel 1879.

The space
The Boat Shed is a little stand-alone, self-contained unit. It has a tv, wifi, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, coffee machine, toaster, kettle, and a luxurious queen size bed. The bathroom is an ensuite adjoining the bedroom.
Please note the kitchenette does not have an oven or stovetop. Please message us if you require the Weber Baby Q barbecue, we will install it prior to your arrival.
Our price includes cleaning and gst.

Guest access
The unit/deck/carport are yours alone. The lower driveway and house are private.

Other things to note
We have not ticked EV charger but do have an outdoor powerpoint in the carport you are welcome to use for charging.
We have not ticked Beach essentials, but do have two beach towels and a beach bag for your use while staying.

Family, nature, animals and the New Zealand paradise, are my loves in life! Together with my husband Joe we founded NZ IN A BOX memory card games of New Zealand. I am also a children's book writer, and a wannabe artist! New Zealand born and bred, I’ve been fortunate to visit many countries around the world. Joe originally from Switzerland identifies as a proud kiwi. A mechanical engineer by trade, he now enjoys creating steel sculptures and we have some of these creations scattered around our property. Joe is a passionate motor biker and a "practicing" guitarist. He has created much of the landscaped gardens around our rural property.
