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...

  • 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.

  • Great bach, very close to beaches

    Great bach, very close to beaches. Lovely big place, awesome deck to enjoy in the sun, and have a barbie. Great for a group or family, as there is alot of space

  • 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.
