An historical icon in the heart of Matakana, White Cottage is an elegant home constructed from native Kauri and lovingly refurbished to offer you modern, luxury-living on your next getaway to New Zealand’s ‘slow living’ capital.

With a stylish interior and heritage detailing that echo the spirit of Matakana, White Cottage outdoes itself in honouring the past while celebrating the present. The home features a well-equipped entertainer’s kitchen, complete with SMEG appliances to add a modern touch to the space. A central island welcomes you to sit with your Nespresso barista style coffee in the morning, transforming into the perfect place to serve up a glass of wine and a platter laden with local produce come the evening time.

Thanks to spacious open-plan living, the kitchen blends seamlessly into the immaculately presented living room. Styled for class and comfort, the living room will become your haven for all things relaxation. Indulge in a few chapters of your book, turn on the TV perfectly perched on the corner easel and watch the latest Netflix release, or use the complimentary WIFI to post your holiday snaps - the choice is yours. We do know you’ll be kept cosy or cool all year round, thanks to the heat pump and additional heating options for the bedrooms.

With two spacious bedrooms off the living area, kept private with stylish sliding barn doors, White Cottage comfortably accommodates up to five guests. The generous king sized beds are dressed with luxury linen and can be separated to provide twin sleeping options, making this classic Matakana holiday home ideal for everyone. A pull out bed is also available, offering that little bit of extra convenience.

The generous sized bathroom at White Cottage oozes indulgence, with luxury hair and skincare products, heated towel rails, and a shower you’ll want to spend far longer than you know you should in.

The perfectly presented exterior of the cottage features a porch with a plethora of seating options. A manicured yard at the rear of the property features fruit trees and nikau palms, and an outdoor setting inviting you to dine alfresco on those warm summer evenings. Fully-fenced with your safety and security in mind, guests are welcome to park their cars on the private driveway.

Constructed in 1883, White Cottage was one of the first residences in Matakana, landing it pride-of-place right in the heart of town. Just steps from the ever-popular Matakana markets, trendy restaurants and cafes, and delightful boutique shopping, White Cottage’s location is unbeatable. Venturing further afield will find you at some of the finest beaches in the region, as well as vineyards and sculpture gardens. The gateway to Northland being just 30 minutes by car also means you can also take advantage of the wonders of The Winterless North.

One of the area’s most stunning holiday options, and just 70km from central Auckland, White Cottage is waiting to become your holiday home away from home.
