Juxtaposed between rolling farmland and dramatic surf below the cliffs.
Where life changing experiences are found.
A place to gain perspective, and unlock potential.
Situated near Muriwai on the North Island of New Zealand, Parihoa Farm is a total of 728 acres consisting of three main sections, the first being Tirikohua Point which is 120 acres, the House of Parihoa is the heart occupying 15 acres and Table Top Farm which is 585 acres. This once in a generation coastal opportunity set high on the cliffs of the west coast overlooking the Tasman Sea is one not to be missed.
Parihoa Farm is like no other place on earth. Upon discovering the farm, the custodian, Matt Chapman's life completely changed, knowing he would never find another place like this.
A series of working farms, the sections border the Tasman Sea and iconic Te Henga walkway and feature dramatic rolling hills, lush native bush and expansive wetlands.
The cornerstone of Parihoa Farm is the Andrew Patterson-designed House of Parihoa. The home is a contradiction - an uber-modern fortress juxtaposed against the stark, windswept landscape.

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.
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.
