Family living on a 7 acre plot in beautiful Matakana, New Zealand



 Min stay requested: at least a week



  • Description


    Hi, We are a young family living on a 7 acre plot in beautiful Matakana. The area is full of lush green land and has a fantastic culture with white sand beaches. We have recently moved to our home with our 2 young children.
    There is plenty to do on the land and we are looking for a single/ friends or a couple to help out with the gardening and some DIY projects on a barn we are tidying up at present.
    We love the beach and you will always find us surfing and in the water. We are fun loving and always enjoy meeting new people having travelled extensively ourselves to many countries. We have a great guest room which is very comfortable and ready for you to stay in and enjoy the beautiful beaches, nature, local food, wineries and organic lifestyle.
