The Saltings Estate
Matakana Coast Wine Country Bed & Breakfast

A Warm Welcome Awaits You
Your hosts, Terry and Maureen Baines will do their utmost to make your stay at the Saltings Estate enjoyable. Terry hails from England, and Maureen from Ireland. They settled in New Zealand in the mid-sixties. They are well travelled and have found their little piece of heaven here. They fell in love with the Saltings when they stayed as guests in 2000. The locality and the Mediterranean ambience of the Saltings appealed to them and they spontaneously offered to buy it. Since then they have added to the charm of the estate with a small vineyard, olive grove, and the re-planting of native bush.

The Most Beautiful Location
The Saltings Estate and Vineyard is one hour north of Auckland, 10 minutes east of Warkworth Village and 3 minutes walk to the Sandspit wharf, home of the ferry service to historic Kawau Island. Heading North for 2 hours will take you to our magnificent west coast Kauri Forest. The fabulous Bay of Islands is only a 3 hour journey and the awesome 90 mile beach is a comfortable 5 hour drive.

The Saltings Estate Luxury Bed and Breakfast and Self Catering Accommodation has been rated at 4.5 stars by Qualmark New Zealand. We are recommended by Boutique Lodgings of New Zealand, Heritage & Character Inns, Frommer's Guide, and Friars' Guide to New Zealand Accommodation 2005, Rough Guide, North & South Magazine, New Zealand Autocar Magazine, Tourism Auckland, Cuisine Wine Country, and Foodtown Magazines.

Boutique Accommodation by the Vineyard
Every now and then you discover a special place to stay and this is one of them. The Saltings Estate in Sandspit is situated in a stunning location and offers a choice of gourmet bed and breakfast at the Saltings Guest House or superb self catering accommodation with full kitchen facilities at The Vintnerís Haven.

Take a break and do something special. Come to the Saltings Estate where you will be pampered with lavender scented linen, luxuriously comfortable beds and warm hospitality.

A Mediterranean ambience is created in both properties with the beautiful interior decor, the vineyard, olive trees and lavender filled garden. White linen, tiles, candles and flowers give a sense of romance. French doors opening onto sunny patios and rustic wooden furniture transport you to Tuscany or Provence. Choose self catering luxury at The Vintnerís Haven overlooking the vineyard and estuary or stay at The Saltings and enjoy a gourmet breakfast with views of the Sandspit estuary.

Sandspit is just one hour north of Auckland and is the ideal destination for exploring the Hauraki Gulf. It is en route to the Kauri Forest, the Bay of Islands and Ninety Mile Beach and only minutes from the Kawau Island ferries, restaurants and the pretty town of Warkworth.
