Slip into cruise neutral, take in the magnificent views and enjoy the piece of paradise that we've created atop the cliffs at Gulf Harbour.

El lugar

Paso a través de la entrada principal en el gran atrio de dos pisos y ser encantado por la impresionante vista a través de la pared de 16 metros de vidrio directamente a la isla de Rangitoto. Esta pared de cristal desliza lejos con el tacto de un botón que permite el flujo de interior al aire libre completo como usted camina hacia fuera a la piscina del horizonte de 15m de largo. A su derecha hay un gimnasio que funciona completamente (incluyendo la rueda de ardilla, el sistema completo de pesos ...). Después de su entrenamiento simplemente buceo hacia fuera las grandes puertas de cristal de longitud completa en la piscina. Nadar una vuelta al otro extremo y parar para un cóctel en el bar húmedo ... Aquí hay una barbacoa totalmente funcional y área de bar con baño marie; Ideal para grupos grandes de la restauración que invita simplemente la vida del al fresco. La cubierta wrap-around se aprovecha de las hermosas vistas y el impresionante mobiliario de salón al aire libre y mesa de comedor de diseño le permiten relajarse y respirar la brisa del mar hermosa o configurar una noche de entretenimiento. En el interior, la planta baja tiene un plan abierto de vida con una cocina de diseño comercial, incluyendo un horno racional y lavaplatos comerciales. Impresionante madera natural, diseñador de muebles a medida y una pantalla de televisión de 59 pulgadas. La planta baja también contiene un impresionante teatro que recuerda a antaño, un estudio de diseño masculino, lavandería, cocina y un dormitorio con baño. Aventurarse en cualquiera de las dos escaleras paralelas y reunirse en el rincón cómodo en el puente en la parte superior de las escaleras. Nestle en el sofá cómodo y mirar hacia la isla Rangitoto, o comprobar en uno de los 6 dormitorios. Hay dos dormitorios principales con walk-in grandes armarios, y baños de mármol con cabezales de ducha de lluvia, suyo y su sumideros y un baño de huevo o bañera de hidromasaje. A cada lado de la casa detrás de cada uno de los dormitorios principales, hay dos dormitorios que comparten un baño de mármol con toallas de lujo de algodón egipcio mullidas. Cada una de estas habitaciones tienen su propio armario empotrado y una cama queen size. Nuestra casa tiene capacidad para 14 personas en las siete amplias habitaciones. Nuestra casa al lado del puerto lo ofrece todo, ya sea que planee unas vacaciones llenas de aventura o un retiro de baja llave, usted encontrará el lugar perfecto para relajarse - beber en la mano - para disfrutar de la magnificencia antes que usted. No podemos esperar a que vengas y lo disfrutes. La siguiente reseña fue publicada pero demasiado largo para la sección de revisión de airbnb, así que por favor encuentre una revisión completa. La impresionante y brillante puerta negra se abrió en respuesta al código electrónico de acceso y entramos en el gran atrio de entrada de mármol de la mansión de tres pisos de Mat, Whangaparaoa, donde vivimos los cinco días siguientes de nuestra familia de Pascua. Parecía demasiado bueno para ser verdad cuando reservé en el sitio web de Airbnb pero era aún más impresionante en realidad. Tuvimos problemas para decidir cuál de las siete lujosas habitaciones (seis arriba y una en la planta baja) y cinco baños de mármol de azulejos para ocupar. Había competencia caliente para los dos dormitorios principales con vistas espectaculares sobre el Golfo de Hauraki y Rangitoto, pero las otras habitaciones también tenía unas vistas fabulosas de Gulf Harbor y la ciudad de Auckland en la distancia. La ropa de cama y toallas, como todo lo demás en la casa, eran de la más alta calidad. El rey y las camas de la reina estaban hechas con toallas blancas más crujiente y una miríada de almohadas. Mat tampoco se limitaba a la cantidad - había un montón de todo. Los baños de mármol de baldosas eran preciosas y equipada con una amplia variedad de artículos de tocador de Aromatherapy Co. - un toque realmente agradable. Los dos cuartos de baño principal tenía tocadores dobles y enormes duchas con dos cabezas de lluvia y dos boquillas montadas en la pared mientras que los otros tres baños tenían versiones ligeramente más pequeñas. Los grifos para las bañeras independientes - una bañera de hidromasaje y la otra un baño de huevos - en los baños principales, fueron inteligentemente montado en el techo. Las ventanas del piso al techo se abrieron para que usted pudiera acostarse en el baño al sol o bajo las estrellas, protegido por una media pared de cristal de seguridad. Lo mismo se aplicaba a las habitaciones principales, donde las paredes de vidrio se deslizaban de un lado, permitiendo vistas despejadas del golfo hasta la península de Coromandel. Las habitaciones principales tenían vestidores grandes con espacio de almacenamiento envidiable y espejos de cuerpo entero, mientras que todas las otras habitaciones tenían grandes armarios empotrados. Las escaleras paralelas corrían desde el atrio de la entrada hasta un puente que unía las dos alas del dormitorio y el baño del piso de arriba. Uno de mis lugares favoritos era el sofá cómodo en el puente. Nunca me cansé de la vista desde lo alto de la piscina de horizonte a Rangitoto y más allá. En la planta baja, la cocina de diseño cuenta con un banco rimu de tres metros, una estufa de inducción grande y un elegante horno Rational con una sonda de sensor que cocinó el cordero asado más crujiente y las verduras que hemos tenido. La cocina de estilo cocina fue un punto focal en las comidas y animó a todos a congregarse para cocinar, charlar, comer y criticar los vinos locales Matakana juntos. Uno de los varones de nuestra familia me encantó el "manguera de fuego" plato-enjuague aparatos en la cocina, así que alegremente servido el lavavajillas comercial. La mesa de comedor de 10 plazas a medida adyacente al banco de la cocina estaba hecha de la misma exquisita madera rimu que el banco de la cocina. Una gran ventaja sobre el alquiler de una casa totalmente equipada en lugar de un hotel o motel es que usted no tiene que llevar absolutamente todo con usted, en cuanto a la comida. Mat insistió en que usamos los ingredientes básicos de su despensa, nevera y jardín. En la Pascua, cuando las tiendas estaban cerradas por dos días, era un envío de Dios para tener artículos como salsas, especias, hierbas frescas, verduras y harina a mano. En un fin de semana cuando el tiempo era tan variable, también era genial tener instalaciones completas de lavandería. En el extremo de la enorme sala de estar abajo había un sofá de cuero negro y sillones, todos reclinados para relajarse, dormir, leer o ver el televisor de pantalla plana de 59 pulgadas, uno de tres en la propiedad. Uno de los muchos factores "wow" fue el teatro casero de tres niveles construido para propósitos, con sillones de cuero reclinables y bolsas de maxi-bean que sentaron 12 en comodidad extrema. El teatro tenía un impresionante estado del sistema de sonido de arte y era un lugar popular en días húmedos. Un toque masculino era evidente en el amplio estudio / oficina de Mat, con su hermoso escritorio de madera oscura y armarios y sillones gruesos. La pared de vidrio de 16 metros, toda la fachada de la planta baja, se abrió al tacto de un teclado para un entretenimiento al aire libre impresionante y complejo de fitness. Con vistas al mar era una piscina infinita más hermosa bookended por un gimnasio totalmente equipado en un lado y una barbacoa al aire libre / cocina / bar en el otro. El nivel de equipamiento en el gimnasio fue asombroso con un conjunto completo de pesos, equipos de entrenamiento de resistencia, una cinta de correr y un tren Vibra. Después de un entrenamiento, usted podría bucear directamente desde la cinta de correr en la piscina de 15 metros tibia, gracias a las puertas correderas de cristal, y nadar una longitud de la barra de natación en el extremo opuesto de la piscina. Detrás del gimnasio había un gran jacuzzi con vistas a Rangitoto y la pequeña isla de Kotanui. A pocos pasos de la cocina exterior / bar con su enorme baño tamaño marie baño, enfriadores y servery era una sólida mesa de ocho plazas de madera maciza y una suite en forma de L salón de todo el tiempo que cómodamente sentado 10 o 12. Perfecto para grandes -Escalar fuera entretenido. El exterior, como el interior de la casa estaba cableado para un sonido de alta calidad. La zona estaba rodeada de paredes de cristal que proporcionaba refugio y seguridad pero no impedía la magnífica vista. En el sótano al lado del patio / garaje del barco era una sala de juegos con una mesa de billar y rugby de coleccionistas firmado, yachting y jerseys de fútbol. Había camisetas de All Black firmadas por Sean Fitzpatrick y el equipo All Black de Wayne Smith en 2001, una de las camisetas de Team New Zealand ganadoras de la Copa América de 2000 y una camiseta de fútbol firmada por el equipo de 2014 en Liverpool. Me encantó la decoración - tonos terrosos neutros con profunda, lujosa alfombra de los cerveceros en las habitaciones, en las escaleras y en el sótano y sala de juegos, y paredes blancas en el atrio de entrada, salón y cocina con azulejos de 800x800mm mármol en los pisos. Los baños tenían la versión de 300x600mm de los mismos azulejos en pisos y paredes. La casa tiene 28 toneladas de azulejos de mármol importados de Verona y la alfombra 100% de lana de gama alta de la gama fue una carrera especial de Feltex. Por cierto, he contado ocho inodoros en total! La casa era extraordinariamente de alta tecnología, controlada por almohadillas de llaves y ipads. Incluso las luces estaban activadas por sensor y se encendieron automáticamente cuando entraba en una habitación. Mat dejó claro que el lugar era nuestro, pero él estaba a sólo una llamada de teléfono si necesitábamos cualquier ayuda con la tecnología. No puedo imaginar por qué alguien iba a alquilar una suite de hotel o motel o apartamento cuando por un precio similar - dividido entre siete parejas - puede tener su propio complejo privado de lujo. Es una absoluta no-brainer. Compruébelo en airbnb.

Step in through the main entrance into the grand two story atrium and be enchanted by the stunning view through the 16 metre wall of glass straight out to Rangitoto island.
This glass wall slides away at the touch of a button allowing complete indoor outdoor flow as you step out to the 15m long horizon pool. To your right there is a fully functioning gym (including treadmill, full set of weights...). After your workout simply dive straight out the large full length glass doors into the pool. Swim a lap to the other end and stop for a cocktail at the wet bar...
Here there is a fully functioning barbeque and bar area complete with bain marie; ideal for catering large groups that simply invites al fresco living. The wrap-around deck takes advantage of the beautiful views and the stunning outdoor lounge furniture and designer dining table allow you to relax and breathe in the beautiful sea breeze or set up for an evening of entertaining.
Back inside, the ground floor has open plan living with a designer commercial kitchen, including a rationale oven and commercial dishwasher. Stunning natural wood, designer bespoke furniture and a 59inch TV screen.
The ground floor also contains a stunning theatre which harks back to yesteryear, a masculine designer study, laundry, scullery and a bedroom with ensuite.
Venture up either of the two parallel staircases and meet at the comfy nook on the bridge at the top of the stairs. Nestle into the snug couch and gaze out to Rangitoto Island, or check into one of the 6 bedrooms. There are two master bedrooms with large walk in wardrobes, and marble ensuites with rain shower heads, his and hers sinks and either an egg bath or spa bath.
On either side of the house behind each of the master bedrooms, there are two bedrooms which share a marble ensuite with luxury egyptian cotton fluffy towels. Each of these bedrooms have their own built in wardrobe and a queen size bed.
Our home comfortably sleeps 14 people in the seven spacious bedrooms.
Our harbour-side house offers it all, whether you plan for an adventure packed holiday or a low key retreat, you will find the perfect spot to relax - drink in hand - to take in the magnificence before you. We can't wait for you to come and enjoy it.

The following review was posted but too long for the airbnb review section, so please find full review.

The impressive shiny black door slid open in response to the electronic access code and we stepped into the grand marble entrance atrium of Mat’s three-storey cliff-top Whangaparaoa mansion, our home for the next five days of our Easter family get together. It looked too good to be true when I booked it on the Airbnb website but it was even more breath-taking in reality.

We had problems deciding which of the seven luxurious bedrooms (six upstairs and one on the ground floor) and five tiled marble bathrooms to occupy. There was hot competition for the two master bedrooms with spectacular views over the Hauraki Gulf and Rangitoto but the other bedrooms also had fabulous views of Gulf Harbour and Auckland city in the distance.

The bed linen and towels, like everything else in the house, were of the highest quality. The king and queen beds were all made up with crispest white linen and a myriad of pillows. Mat did not stint on quantity either – there was plenty of everything.

The tiled marble bathrooms were gorgeous and stocked with a lovely range of Aromatherapy Co. toiletries – a really nice touch. The two master bathrooms had double vanities and huge walk-in showers fitted with two rain heads and two wall-mounted nozzles while the other three bathrooms had slightly smaller versions.

The faucets for the freestanding tubs – one a spa bath the other an egg bath – in the master bathrooms, were cleverly mounted in the ceiling.

Floor to ceiling windows slid open so you could lie in the bath in the sun or under the stars, protected by a half wall of safety glass.

The same applied to the master bedrooms where glass walls slid aside allowing unencumbered views of the gulf as far as the Coromandel Peninsula.

The master bedrooms had large dressing rooms with enviable storage space and full length mirrors while all the other bedrooms had sizeable built-in wardrobes.

Parallel staircases ran from the entrance atrium to a bridge linking the two upstairs bedroom/bathroom wings.

One of my favourite spots was the comfy couch on the bridge. I never tired of the view from on high over the horizon pool out to Rangitoto and beyond.

On the ground floor, the designer kitchen featured a three-metre rimu bench, a large induction cooktop and a smart Rational oven with a sensor probe that cooked the crispiest roast lamb and vegetables we have ever had.

The galley-style kitchen was a focal point at meal times and encouraged everyone to congregate to cook, chat, eat and critique local Matakana wines together.

One of the males in our family loved the “fire hose” plate-rinsing apparatus in the scullery so he happily manned the commercial dishwasher.

The 10-seater bespoke dining table adjacent to the kitchen bench was made of the same exquisite rimu timber as the kitchen bench.

A major plus about renting a fully equipped house as opposed to a hotel or motel is that you don’t have to bring absolutely everything with you, food-wise. Mat insisted we use the basic ingredients from his pantry, fridge and garden. At Easter when the shops were shut for two days, it was a God-send to have items like sauces, spices, fresh herbs, vegetables and flour on-hand.

On a weekend when the weather was so variable, it was also great to have full laundry facilities.

At the far end of the huge downstairs living space was a black leather couch and armchairs all of which reclined for relaxing, snoozing, reading or viewing the 59-inch flat screen television, one of three at the property.

One of many “wow” factors was the three-level purpose-built home theatre with reclining leather armchairs and maxi-bean bags which seated 12 in extreme comfort. The theatre had an impressive state of the art sound system and was a popular spot on wet days.

A masculine touch was evident in Mat’s spacious study/office with its handsome dark wood desk and cabinetry and chunky armchairs.

The 16-metre glass wall, the entire frontage of the ground floor, opened at the touch of a key pad to an awesome outdoor entertainment and fitness complex.

Overlooking the sea was a most beautiful infinity pool bookended by a fully-equipped gym on one side and an outdoor BBQ/kitchen/bar on the other.

The standard of equipment in the gym was astounding with a full set of weights, resistance training equipment, a treadmill and a Vibra Train. After a workout, you could dive straight from the treadmill into the 15-metre tepid pool, thanks to the sliding glass doors, and swim a length to the swim-up bar at the opposite end of the pool.

Behind the gym was a large jacuzzi looking out to Rangitoto and the little island of Kotanui.

A few paces from the outside kitchen/bar with its enormous restaurant-size bain marie, chillers and servery was a sturdy solid wood eight-seater table and an L-shaped all-weather lounge suite which comfortably seated 10 or 12. Perfect for large-scale outside entertaining. The exterior, like the interior of the house was wired for high quality sound. The area was surrounded by glass walls which provided shelter and safety but did not impede the gorgeous view.

In the basement beside the quad car/boat garage was a games room with a pool table and signed collectors’ rugby, yachting and soccer jerseys. There were All Black jerseys signed by Sean Fitzpatrick and Wayne Smith’s 2001 All Black team, one of the 2000 Team New Zealand America’s Cup-winning jerseys and a signed soccer jersey from the 2014 Liverpool team which will hopefully soon be English champions, said Mat.

I loved the décor – neutral earthy tones with deep, luxurious, fawn carpet in the bedrooms, on the stairs and in the basement and games room, and white walls in the entrance atrium, living and kitchen areas with 800x800mm marble tiles on the floors. The bathrooms had the 300x600mm version of the same tiles on floors and walls.

The house has 28 tonnes of imported Verona marble tiles and the top-of-the-range 100 percent wool carpet was a special run by Feltex.

Incidentally, I counted eight toilets in total!

The house was extraordinarily high-tech, controlled by key pads and ipads. Even the lights were sensor-activated and came on automatically as you entered a room.

Mat made it clear the place was ours but he was just a phone call away if we required any assistance with the technology.

I cannot imagine why anyone would rent a hotel suite or motel or apartment when for a similar price – divided among seven couples – you can have your own luxury private resort. It’s an absolute no-brainer. Check it out on airbnb.

This was our second stay at Kate and Mat's home in as many years. We've traveled from the U.S. on both occasions, so Kate and Mat's responsive communication greatly reduced the stress of trying to coordinate accommodations for a large group of people. Other reviewers have provided detailed descriptions of the home and its amenities, and their appreciation of the home is warranted. It's a beautiful residence, in a great location, with a stunning view of the harbor and Rangitoto Island. The home is close to public transportation and you can walk (30 - 45 minutes, depending on the beach and your speed) or drive (5 - 10 minutes) to the Shakespear beaches relatively easily. The ferry is also within walking distance (10 minutes, using the steps at the end of the street). Since our first stay, a New World store has opened in Whangaparaoa and we did most of our grocery shopping at that location, which was about 10 minutes by car from the home. In that shopping complex there were also a few restaurants that we enjoyed. The property has a number of modern amenities, which were well-used during our stay(s). The pool, gym, theater room, and game room were quite popular, but many hours were also spent socializing in the kitchen/dining area with the pocket doors open so that we could enjoy the ocean breeze. The bedrooms were well-appointed and the closets in both upstairs master bedrooms were, quite frankly, huge. The wine cellar was awesome, but we didn't use it nearly as much as it deserved to be used. In a nutshell, Kate and Mat are great to work with and, if you have the opportunity, you should definitely take them up on their hospitality. We certainly intend to do so (again) in the future.

Amazing place with beautiful view and incredible set up. You have everything you need there and even thought the technology seems a bit overwhelming at first, is actually pretty easy! We should have book for longer, two days is not enough! Thanks Kate and Mat
