***Access to the matchbox is contactless and we are following Covid-19 regulations. We live in a separate tiny home on the property, but you won't need to have contact with us. Hand sanitiser is provided.*** The matchbox gives you the chance to check out tiny house living in a great location. It is a quirky, self-contained space on a view-filled plot a short walk from central New Plymouth. At 18sq m, it has a comfy queen bed, full bathroom, and porch with kitchenette.
“Fabulous little tiny home exactly as pictured. Beautiful peaceful bush outlook so you can enjoy eating breakfast at the brekkie bar while gazing down into the valley below. Had the opportunity to watch a family of pukekos one morning. The kitchen porch opens via a tilt-a-door. There is also one over the breakfast bar opening to the view. Great shower, one of the best we had so far and the best, most comfy bed! The bed is cleverly designed to pull out from the wall and is disguised as a couch during the day. Fantastic location, walking distance to town and Pukekura Park for the light festival. Thanks very much letting us enjoy this special place and hope to be back again one day. Glen - Thanks for being a great host!!”

“Secure, private, spotless, nicely furnished self-contained unit overlooking garden, great shower, tea/coffee plus breakfast supplies in fridge, on-street parking right outside main house. 1 hour’s drive from Dawson Falls Visitor Centre and a range of short or long walks/hikes on Mt Egmont, less than 5 mins drive to East End beach on the coastal walkway. Unfortunately didn’t meet the host as we were both unwell during my short stay but we communicated by text and responses were swift. Thanks for a great stay, Sally!”
Come and stay at our piece of paradise with stunning views of the mountain.
