Our private self-contained studio is situated at Matakana on 38 acres of native bush and pasture. Less than an hour from Auckland, it is close to beautiful beaches, bush walks, vineyards and cafes. Tranquil country retreat away from city stresses but just five minutes from Matakana Village and the Farmer's Market, boutique cinemas and speciality shopping. We have stunning rural valley views with the Mt Tamahunga conservation tramp as our backdrop.
Kotare Studio is completely private. It has French doors onto a small patio with stunning views of the rural valley and stands of native New Zealand bush. It is north-facing and warm throughout the year. Situated up a private driveway, there is no traffic noise. It is very peaceful. It has a Queen bed with quality cotton bed linen, an ensuite and a fully equipped kitchen. There is a washing machine.

I love travel in Europe and Asia. I am a retired journalist and communications consultant. I am interested in architecture, art, good food and wine, and conversation. In the summer I like to swim often and love sailing when I get the chance.
