Matakana Village River Cottage

 This property is delightful! It is private and peaceful, perfect for relaxing and only a short walk to Matakana Village and Saturday markets. The hosts, Neville and Margaret, are very warm, welcoming, and so accomodating. During our 4 night stay we had a friend visit and stay over - they didn't charge us extra. The photos don't show it, but there is a very private deck and garden, which gets all day sun. We sat out here often for meals. The beds are comfy! The breakfast basket = AMAZING! A gem! 

Casa Coyote -  Waterfront WOW! 8km from Matakana

 From the moment we walked through the door we fell in love with place. We had a glorious week at Casa Coyote, enjoying sitting on the balcony, looking out over the water and enjoying our breakfast. Jumping into the plunge pool to cool off or swimming in the warm sea just a couple of minutes down the road. Casa Coyote was ideal for us, spaces to be social and spaces for a quiet read. A great place to get away to but handy to lots of activities, restaurant's and shops. An awesome holiday.
