Escape to Kowhai Retreat – the most luxurious villa in Matakana. Listen to the Tui birds as you sink into the tranquility of the infinity pool








Bringing A New Level Of Luxury To Matakana

Kowhai Retreat offers space for up to 12 in a stunning villa, overlooking an infinity pool, spa pool, sunken trampoline and petanque court, combined with unbelievable spaces to enjoy time together incorporating the surrounding landscape at every turn. Spend time exploring the exquisite local wineries, or have them come to you and host a private tasting of the best local drops in the private wine cellar.

Waterside Seclusion Just A Stones’ hrow From Auckland

Wake up in privacy just a stone’s throw (1 hour drive) from Auckland CBD and 1 hour 30 minutes from Auckland International Airport. Perfect for a beachside ‘staycation’ with the family, or an executive retreat with colleagues, to escape the board room and get creativity flowing.

The Beach And Culture On Your Doorstep

Sinking into the tranquility of the pool, with a glass of Brick Bay Vineyard’s 2019 Vintage Rosé is a summer scene hard to beat. Walk, hop on an e-bike or take a boat up the river to marvellous Matakana with its famous Farmers Market, organic cafes, restaurants, pubs and uniquely kiwi surf culture. Spectacular Tawhanui and Omaha surf beaches are close by, along with some of the region’s best wineries and sculpture trails.It’s about experiencing life as a kiwi local and fully immersing yourself and your family in the slow paced, ‘off the beaten track’ life of Matakana.

Trampoline, Boats and Games Galore…

If you bounce yourself silly, bore of the endless fun on offer in the poolside games room, or simply want to get out on the water, kayak upriver to the Matakana pub or out to sea to explore the surrounding bays. Feeling fit? Jump in one of the paddle boards and explore the estuary.
