Matakana - A Touch of Tuscany in Matakana

 Outstanding views, lovely private space and excellent proximity to all attractions without being in the main center of matakana. 

Matakana - A Touch of Tuscany in Matakana

 Situated privately in a completely rural setting with beautiful valley views, Kotare Cottage is a relaxing haven set well off the road and elevated near the bush-line. Very conducive to peaceful relaxation. The Cottage is a good size for two people with a comfortable bed and everything needed for an enjoyable stay.The hosts are very helpful if any needs arise. We loved the location which seems central to many beach spots and only 5 minutes to Matakana. Highly recommend this one.

 Fantastic location and accommodation for couples and singles looking for a peaceful holiday with immediate access to Matakana, Omaha and the numerous beaches and attractions in the area. I could not recommend this place more highly.

 We booked this place very late notice and they where very accommodating and lovely hosts. We had a great time here, had everything we needed. Not too far from the centre if town and the surrounding beaches. I highly recommend this to any couple. Many thanks Chris
