About our home

Makora Homestead is an old villa style farmhouse built by one of the original farmers in the Kaipara area in 1916. It is situated on 2.5 acres and surrounded by beautiful farmlands with extensive views of the countryside. There is a separate smaller dwelling on the same property. There are lovely gardens with a veggie patch, plenty of fruit trees and fresh eggs from the chickens. We are on the edge of the Kaipara Harbour, 10 minutes away from Helensville township and 45 minutes to central Auckland.
Local attractions include: The Kaipara Harbour- the largest harbour in the southern hemisphere, Muriwai Beach- an excellent surf beach, local vineyards with excellent wine and dining, Parakai Springs - a hot pools swimming pool and slides, a recreational airport with sky diving, Gibb's Farm- an amazing private collection of sculptures in beautiful grounds overlooking the Kaipara Harbour (limited openings per year) and lots of walks. Plenty to do in the local area but easy day trips throughout the wider Auckland area to a large range of attractions.
The main house has 3 bedrooms, expansive lounge and dining area opening up to large outdoor decking area, traditional country kitchen and large family bathroom. The small house has an open plan living and kitchen area, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
