  • Greetings from Down Under.  I own/operate a boutique B&B/Lodge in Matakana, which is a one hour drive north of Auckland, New Zealand.  Check out our site when you have a minute.

    We are having an amazing summer - it's 6pm and 24 degrees Celsius.  Guests are making use of the swimming pool which is currently 30 degree celsius and that's without the heat pump on.

    Keep us in mind if you know of anyone coming to New Zealand.  We are hosting the Rugby World Cup later in the year and although we are an hours drive from the venue, we are happy to transport guests to the games.  



  • You are absolutely right. We believe that our main responsibility and job is to provide a safe, peaceful, private environment for our guest to relax and enjoy all the beauty that Alaska has to offer. Only B&B's can aford to think in this way.
    Wish we were full but not many visitors this time of year. 20 degrees and snowing.
