Relax and enjoy the simple life in this charming, older bach, set back from the road with valley, bush and sea views and a large private deck off the open plan upstairs living area.

Downstairs there's a rumpus and bunkroom opening to a large grassy section with lovely big trees.

It's a short walk to Matheson Bay beach - sheltered, sandy and with great swimming at any tide. Go snorkelling or ride the glass bottom boat at Goat Island marine reserve, a few minutes away by car.

Or visit Matakana's farmers market, food shops, cafes, and nearby wineries.

Just a short road trip from Auckland or Whangerei , this bach is the perfect weekend getaway...

  • Older style Bach which was very comfortable

    Older style Bach which was very comfortable.. In a great location just a short walk to a safe child friendly beach. Close to Leigh Saw Mill Cafe and 12 minutes drive to Matakana Shops..

    Older style bach, But clean and tidy and great value. Slept the 7 of us comfortably. Fantastic location a short walk down the hill to the lovely Mattheson bay and only a 5 minute drive to Goat Island.

  • Great value

    Great value. Very large bach with room for a lot of people. Many upstairs windows that open for a breeze. View of the ocean. Kitchen is well-stocked. Plenty of blankets, etc. Musty smell on lower levels (probably because it's an older house), and millions of ants (due to recent wet weather?). The neighbour (who helps out with the place) said he would take care of the problem as soon as we left, and told us where to find some ant poison in the meantime. Overall great value.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for the feedback Andrew. I'm glad you enjoyed the bach overall. I thought we had the ant situation under control as family staying there the previous weekend reported no ants. I'm sorry you had that to deal with. The downstairs is usually fine in summer, but I guess the unprecedented drenching last week changed that. Again, my apologies.
