Located in a secret valley and surrounded by wildlife and bush, Songbird Cottage will be your luxury home-away-from-home as you explore Matakana and its surrounds.

Located about an hour northeast of Auckland, Songbird Cottage boasts a balance of privacy, peace, and nature’s beauty. It is just a 10-minute walk to Matheson Bay where you can swim, snorkel, or have a picnic on the grass. Or, if you want to take in the warmth and glow of the golden hour, take a tranquil stroll along nearby Omaha Beach.

Songbird Cottage looks like something out of a picture postcard. Upon arrival, you will be welcomed with a bottle of complimentary sparkling wine that you can enjoy from the verandah while taking in the picturesque surrounds.

Step inside the home, and you’ll be enveloped by the stylish interior and comforting neutral tones. The living room features a long, comfy sofa that makes the perfect place for snuggling in front of the cosy wood burner. Adjacent the living room is the fully-equipped kitchen, which comes with a refrigerator, an oven, a microwave, a Nespresso coffee machine and a coffee plunger. The kitchen is also stocked with breakfast provisions and basic pantry essentials.

The cottage’s entire living space opens up to a large wooden deck with a range of comfortable seating. This spot is perfect for morning yoga or for simply marvelling at the surrounding verdant sceneries. The deck also makes a good spot for alfresco dining or for cooking up a storm on the Weber barbecue. Beside the cottage, you will find a converted barn where you can securely store your outdoor gear. 

The master bedroom at Songbird Cottage can be found upstairs and features an indulgent king size bed fitted with cool Egyptian cotton bed linens. It also offers an ensuite bathroom with a relaxing rain shower and views across the lawns. There is additional sleeping space for extra guests in a small bunk room downstairs and in the separate sleep-out about 10m from the cottage. Outside there is a second outdoor bathroom that is all about alfresco bathing. This secluded bathroom is surrounded by wooden barriers and is fitted with a large freestanding bathtub where you can enjoy the magnificent views or a soak under the stars.

Note: Children are welcomed by prior arrangement only. Please be aware that there is a large pond on the grounds, without fencing, and therefore the property is not suitable for young children under the age of 6.
