    Matai Cottage has everything necessary for a delightful stay while retaining its ambience as a traditional family holiday home with comfortable eclectic furniture and family mementoes. The layout is lovely, kitchen, lounge and main bedroom enjoying the immediacy of high tide lapping at the edge of the lawn close by. The Matai tree grows through a hole in the deck, and tuis feed on the flax bushes in front of the cottage. Lovely morning sun streams into the cottage over sparkling water.
