 Everything specially the kitchen with a river view. 

 We had a group of 8 friends (3 couples and 2 single ladies) and the property was perfect. There was plenty of room and it was a very comfortable home. There is lots to do in the area, but we enjoyed staying in also - why leave when you have such a wonderful holiday home to relax in!! 

 The property is huge and super private. The kauri walk was great and having use of the dingy and kayaks was wonderful. 

 Great spot, we enjoyed out stay. 

 Fantastic location, great view, big property and large house. We took the dinghy out for a row in the estuary, and walked through the old kauri trees. We stopped at the Matakana Market and a couple of wineries on the way up. Also Omaha Beach as it's so close.
