Matakana Estate Lodge
A modern architectural wonder, this elevated villa punctuates the natural New Zealand landscape. It’s situated high on a north-facing ridge on the Matakana Coast with uninterrupted panoramic views of the surrounding valleys, sprawling vineyards, and undulating hilltops; sandy shorelines await nearby. Pick up a variety of limited release specialty wines at Heron’s Flight to take back home with you. You’ll notice the intricate details and bespoke décor as soon as you enter this refined residence. Towering ceilings make room for skyhigh windows to ignite the interior with rays of sunlight while lending a clear line of sight to the backyard’s dense foliage and fruit trees. Why not indulge in the luxury of a private chef who can masterfully whip up a meal in the contemporary kitchen, using fresh vegetables from the abundant garden, to complement a couple of bottles of award-winning Pinot Gris or Chardonnay? To switch things up, try serving dinner in the former cellar for a gourmet experience. The indoor swimming pool is framed by a tiled terrace with plump chaise loungers and armchairs. An hour from Auckland, spend a day exploring the bustling metropolis and countless outdoor activities; thrill-seekers will be especially keen to experience an edge-walk at the city’s iconic Sky Tower. Tee off on the flawless fairway at Warkworth Golf Club, just a 1-minute drive away from the estate. Markets, galleries, and eateries specializing in creating dishes from the locally-sourced produce can be found at the heart of the region. Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.

The Point Villa Ngahere
Nothing but bushland surrounds this wonderfully private villa on the shores of Lake Taupo. Watch the sun move across the mountains and water from the shade of the pergola on the terrace or beneath the vaulted ceiling of the open-concept great room. Hike to the footbridge over the roaring Huka Falls, cycle the nearby Great Lake Trail, or fish for trout—the only way to taste this local specialty. You’ll have to decide whether the views of Mine Bay are best from the swimming pool, hot tub, or the outdoor lounging and dining areas. If you’re lucky enough to have caught a local trout, try preparing it on the barbecue (or call a restaurant in Taupo to do the job). After a day out on the lake or in the mountains, the smart TV, Wi-Fi, and gas fireplace are ready to help you unwind. Fold-away glass walls make the great room feel like an extension of the sunny terrace. Here, you can stretch out on a wicker sofa, whip up something delicious in the fully equipped kitchen, or relive the day’s adventures with friends and family around a dining table for 8, all under a vaulted ceiling that makes the space bright and airy. Each of the 3 bedrooms at this luxury vacation rental has a king bed and en-suite bathroom; 2 of them have lake views and one opens directly to the terrace with the hot tub, for couples who might want to relive their honeymoon. The Point Villa Ngahere offers a quintessential New Zealand holiday, with gorgeous scenery, outdoor adventure and great food all close at hand. It’s a 1-minute drive to the Taupo Maori Carving, which can also be seen from the water on a kayak tour, and a short drive to both the brilliant blue waters of Huka Falls and the town of Taupo.
