Parihoa Farm

Written by Matthew Chapman, Owner

Within New Zealand lies the heavenly Parihoa Farm, a place I am exceptionally proud of. It is the ultimate wellbeing sanctuary, and few properties like this exist worldwide.

Comprising 711 acres and sitting high on cliffs overlooking the Tasman Sea, Parihoa Farm is a multi-dimensional place. It juxtaposes one of the most picturesque rural landscapes in New Zealand and combines it with incredible architecture.

We are taking Parihoa Farm to the market as a whole and as three separate parts, each detailed further in their listings: House of Parihoa (25.7 acres), Tabletop Farm (554 acres) and Tirikahua Point Farm (128 acres). Parihoa Farm, as a whole, operates as a private home and events business and contains two working farms. It consists of multiple guest houses, wellbeing structures and entertaining pavilions. The "House of Parihoa" is the centrepiece, and there is scope to build two other world-class residences of a similar scale.

I have had many dreams and visions of what Parihoa Farm can become. My most preferred would be a globally acclaimed transformative wellbeing retreat. However, the choice is yours, to go private or commercial, or a hybrid of both like I have done.
A vast seaside location like this, on the West Coast of New Zealand, so close to Auckland, will never be repeated. This is an intentional sale to simplify my life further.

Matt Chapman; building a place and a community where world changing ideas are formed.

Matt came to New Zealand in 2013 from Singapore. He was forwarded the sale listing of Parihoa by a friend and was transfixed by the images. Matt befriended the Storey Family who were selling the farm, and ultimately bought the property.

Almost a decade on, Matt is passionate about Parihoa which has become a place of personal transformation and healing for him, his friends and guests.

Matt's passion is in people and high performance. Known globally in the human resources field, due to his co-founding of ChapmanCG. Matt has recently launched Matt Chapman Wellbeing from New Zealand, a global brand putting wellbeing at the heart of work. Matt puts Parihoa at the centre of this concept and aims for it to be a place of wellbeing for New Zealand and the world.

The Jewel Box at the House of Parihoa is the crown jewel of Parihoa.

The Jewel Box was created with a vision to showcase exceptional talent and ideas.

It was a bold project undertaken by architect Andrew Patterson. Completed in 2022, the event and retreat space structure elongates the already iconic House of Parihoa, that was built in 2008.

The Jewel Box is a unique event and retreat space with unlimited possibilities, connecting wellbeing, creativity and entrepreneurship.

The House of Parihoa


Whilst a sophisticated structure, the House of Parihoa also resembles a giant tent. One in which you feel safe and comfortable inside. The large windows bring in the surroundings and the skies. On a moonlit night, the moon shines through the interior spaces.

It's the perfect place to experience the wonder and majesty of nature from glorious still summer days to wild winter storms.

Parihoa Farm lends itself to bold thinking and breakthroughs. It has been the place for my global network to connect and share big ideas on wellbeing, creativity and entrepreneurship.

Parihoa Farm has contrasting west coast weather, storms are followed by sunshine and wild winds soon fade to stillness.

September to November

Parihoa Farm comes alive with the birth of new lambs and calves. Winter can still linger well into Spring, but soon the green shoots come, the days get warmer and summer is on its way.

December to February

Summer can be electric at Parihoa Farm. Long sunshine days, stillness from the winds, heavenly sunsets and the NZ holiday feeling. The farm gets dry and there can be bugs, but that's Parihoa.

March to May

Summer in New Zealand can last well into Autumn. Parihoa Farm gets dry and the long days still remain, but so does the sunshine. Winter starts to make its presence felt in May.
