Lodge at Matapouri - Gorgeous sea views

 Great views, large open spaces, has everything you would need. Does need repairs and maintenance as nails were protruding from deck, causing cut feet; door handles falling off and ice machine on fridge not working. Also some light bulbs need replacing as some areas quite dark. But would definitely stay again as these are small worries :) 

BLUESKIN BAY HOUSE - beach, space, views and peace
