The property

Step into a postcard-perfect paradise at this three-bedroom escape, positioned harmoniously overlooking a private lake in a peaceful spot about 3 km from Tāwharanui Regional Park. Swamphouse on the Peninsula is its own private sanctuary, rich in plant and bird life. From its humble beginnings as a 5 acre sheep paddock about 16 years ago, to now - the owners have worked hard building a holiday home that enjoys native planting, a small fruit tree orchard, and a small private lake. The lake is now home to a family of endangered pateke and wood pigeons, kaka and pukeko, adding to the charm of this unique adventure. Swamphouse is a sanctuary from a busy life. Relax in the outdoor bath, light a fire and swim at the local beach at full tide. It is close to beautiful Tāwharanui for a surf or a nature walk and yet only 10 minutes to thriving Matakana. Three bedrooms here comfortably sleep up to 12 guests, with a large bunk room enjoying access to the outdoors. A large shared driveway offers plenty of space to park the car, boat, and water toys up, so it's just a bonus that you're so close to the water's edge. When adventure calls, you are within easy proximity to an excellent selection of wineries, boutique stores, markets, and beaches. A short drive takes you into Matakana Village for a few tasty cafes and restaurants, not to mention boutique shopping. Visit Tāwharanui Regional Park, only a 7-minute drive, to see some of the region's most beautiful white sand beaches, rolling pastures, shingled bays, native coastal forest and regenerating wetlands. You won't want to be anywhere else when each day ends.

As the property has direct access to the lake, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
