    Had a wonderful time kayaking in the estuary and walking to mermaid pools and Whale Bay. A very restful and stimulating, stunning spot. Nice quiet street.

    Matapouri has some awesome beaches and Macs House is within a 5-10 minute easy (level) walk to the beach. The property is a great place to relax, especially with it's wrap-around deck off the lounge. Despite there being a second dwelling at the rear of the property, Macs Houses feels private. The house itself is light-filled with three ranch sliders letting in plenty of fresh air (although without air-con it can get very hot when closed up). A great little cottage for a great summers break.

    It is almost like coming to stay at our own crib we have got so used to it. More kitchen stuff than we have at home. Everything is nice and easy, comfortable deck chairs, great TV and DVD player. But the teapot has gone missing - it wasn't us!
