  • The location is amazing, in the heart of Matapouri

    The location is amazing, in the heart of Matapouri. Plenty of walks around, along with the several wonderful beaches within easy walking distance. The bach has all the necessary facilities, clean and cosy.

  • Basic, but clean and comfortable and in a good location

    Basic, but clean and comfortable and in a good location. Would be good if the shower was bit stronger on hot, but otherwise all good, and exceptional value.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Much appreciate feedback on the shower . We forgot to have the plumber adjust it up for winter temp and turn down the cold water pressure which we always do -Thanks it has now been done. Contact us for another weekend booking which we are happy to provide at no charge. John & Judy

  • What a relief to walk into Mac's place

    What a relief to walk into Mac's place. Much needed R&R required and this property certainly provided that for us. So comfortable and peaceful. Fully equipped kitchen and cosy lounge. Five minutes from stunning Matapouri beach. We'll be back.
