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...

  • Our stay was comfortable

    Our stay was comfortable. The kids were all together downstairs together which was fabulous. The batch was reasonably priced, had all we needed and close to a lovely family beach.

  • Great location

    Great location. Short stroll to Mathesons Bay, and quick drive to Goat Island and Omaha. The TV didn't work but we saw that as a positive for the family experience, and no Hot water for the shower, but hey it was summer. Thanks for a good holiday.

    The connection from the satbox to the tv had been unplugged by the previous renters. Sorry this was not noticed before your arrival. We do provide our contact numbers for renters in case of problems like this. There are 2 bathrooms and 2 showers. The mixer in one is not working and will be replaced asap but the other is fine. There is no problem with getting a hot shower.

    We loved staying here, the large deck that catches the sun for the majority of the day is a real highlight.

  • This bach felt very cozy and was well suited to our group

    This bach felt very cozy and was well suited to our group. The only thing I would change would be the instructions provided, they were quite vague and we needed to call the owners a couple of times to clarify. I would recommend this bach to big groups.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The instructions are quite detailed and I would hesitate to add to their length. I do not think they are vague at all. However, this is a 1950s family bach, so there are differences from more recently built places. There was one call from this group re a switch which had been turned off in error. The other call was regarding the keys, but the group had not read the instructions regarding this, when they called. By the time I called back they had done so . This is ideally a family bach.
