A fully appointed kitchen makes catering easy

There's no shortage of excellent places to eat and wineries to sample from in and around Matakana but for those who prefer to stay in and relax, Koru House's kitchen is at your disposal.

It's fully appointed, offers plenty of bench space for several cooks to be involved while still able to talk to everyone else in your party.

The deck sits just in front of the kitchen, so a few steps takes you to outdoors tables..


Attention to detail everywhere you look.

From decorative pieces found on Brian and Lindsay's travels to handcrafted furniture from Brian's workshop and original art from Lindsay's easel, the decor is unique and fascinating.
