Stunning cottage with spa in tropical setting.

 Brilliant place to stay. Clean, modern. Garden and spa were beautiful, felt like tropical resort. Quick drive to Matakana. 

The Tower House, Muriwai Beach

 Lovely spacious house! Fabulous views! 

The Croft - Home away from home.

 A fantastic location - within walking distance of Matakana, but in a very quiet spot. The bach is beautifully presented and we would be very keen to visit again in the future. Thank you!
