Return to Itinerary

Matakohe is an ideal place to stay. Charming heritage homes converted in B&B and a holiday park for those who wish to pop up a tent.



The Old Post Office Guesthouse is an historic old building circa 1903. On entering, look down and you will be standing on kauri planks milled in the Kaipara. You will also notice the hollow in both the front doorways worn down by countless feet. There are four guest suites.

  • The Postmaster’s suite (including own entrance, hallway and bathroom)
  • The Kakariki room (smaller double room with private but adjacent bathroom)
  • The pretty little yellow room (single with the bathroom around the corner)
  • The old post sorting room. Another larger single room (bathroom around the corner)
  • Garden studio, self contained with space for a family.

Evening meals can be pre ordered but must be requested two days in advance. GF/ DF and vegetarian options available.


Matakohe House Bed and Breakfast is located on the Kaipara Harbour, it is only metres from the ever popular Kauri Museum and on the way to the largest Kauri tree standing the giant Tane Mahuta “Lord of the Forest”. The property is surrounded by a large, covered, sun-drenched deck overlooking picturesque blooms and water views. The B&B has four bedrooms with en-suite, a communal lounge used by house guests which is both functional and comfortable with Sky Tv and a kitchenette where you can help yourself to tea or coffee and a treat.

Matakohe House has four very spacious comfortable rooms with en-suite and access to a wraparound deck with garden and water views.
