At the top of a wind­ing drive­way, with al­most 360-de­gree views, sits what was once Matakana Coun­try Lodge. Su­san and Garth O’Con­nor ran the lodge, at­tract­ing guests from all cor­ners of the globe. But their new project – which is now up and run­ning – is The Barn, a self-con­tained home that sleeps up to six guests. Use it for a get­away with friends or a fam­ily es­cape. There is a car­a­van out back if the kids get too noisy. The Barn is five min­utes from Matakana and all that the vil­lage of­fers. How­ever, with bush walks to ex­plore and books to read, there isn’t re­ally any rea­son to leave. 149 An­der­son Road, Matakana,
