Matakana rustic retreat: bush/beaches/markets.

 The location was perfect, remote and very peaceful but still close to everything. Unit had everything we needed. Only wished our stay was longer - we will be back!!

 Privacy, cleanliness, atmosphere, view. Set on farmland with water views. Loved the pond at the front of our deck with the jumping fish and birdlife. Always something to look at. Loved the woody interior - can imagine it would be lovely in the winter too with the potbelly.
