New Zealand destinations
The Grove's loft is nestled next to our olive grove and is a self-contained accommodation and is separate from main house. Our place is ideal for couples, solo adventureers and families with children (including babies & toddlers).
A breakfast basket with cereal, toast etc is provided for the first morning only.
The location is peaceful but just a short drive distance to most attractions & beaches. The perfect base for exploring the region.
The loft is an upstair living space with a kitchenette. There is one bedroom with king bed (can be separated in to two single beds) . The second room has a queens bed and is a large open alcove and not visible from the living area.
There are lots of cafes, restaurants and wineries to choose from in the region, however if you feel like eating in the loft has a kitchenette that comes with a microwave, 2 pot hotpate, kettle, toaster, bar fidge and bench top oven. There are pots for cooking and basic cooking equipment. It's furnished with a dining table & chairs, sofa and two modern arm chairs. There is a television with Freeview, plus a DVD player and DVDs. There is no wifi as not very reliable.
The bathroom has both a shower and bath with shampoo, conditioner & towels supplied.
There is one comfortable queen size bed in an alcove and in a separate room two single beds. These beds can be joined together to create a king size bed.
You are welcome to walk around the property's olive grove and orchard. We will show you where it's suitable to walk - suitable footwear recommended.
Family-friendly: We know just how difficult it can be to pack everything you'll need for a baby or toddler-friendly holiday. We have all the key kit for your under-fives ready and waiting for when you arrive, so you can travel light. These include; a portacot (with cot linen), high chair, baby bath, changing table, child's step, potty, bottle steriliser, microwave, stair guard and night light. Just let us know if required any of these for your stay. Although not a large space, there is enough room on a rainy day for your children to play indoors and we have suitable toys available. Board games are available for the grown ups too!!
The loft comes with its own private entrance and parking space, so you can come and go as you please. The loft is a self-contained accommodation located upstairs. There is a lawn area and seating available out side. Plus if you feel like a stroll through the olive grove it's right at your door step. If we are working in the grove, then we will let you know when it's okay to walk through.
There is a lock box and key, so you are able to let yourself in if we are not home to greet you when you arrive.
Interaction with guests
We live and work from our property, so are around if you need us but are happy to leave you to enjoy Matakana and the Loft on your own too. There is information available in the accommodation about what to do and see around the region.
Other things to note
Due to livestock being on the property we can't take any pets.
