  • Close to estuary and beach though no view of sea

    Close to estuary and beach though no view of sea. Quiet location.

  • Spotless and nice facilities

    Spotless and nice facilities. Several family members of the owner were camping and staying in other buildings on the site which was a surprise. Nice people although their comings, goings and general noise felt more like a camping ground -not what we were expecting for $450+ a night. We booked a pet friendly property but this had changed when we arrived, so one of us had to sleep outside each night to ensure our dog didn't bark due to his being anxious about not being allowed inside to sleep.

    The bach is in a great location, just a few minutes from the beach. The house is really comfortable, clean and well equipped. It has a lovely, well maintained garden and deck that is partly covered. We highly recommend this bach.

  • This bach was clean and functional

    This bach was clean and functional. We really liked that the kitchen was well stocked and that there were kayaks there for our use. We were disappointed in its location, however, as it was much farther from the beach than the description indicated. I searched and search the book a back website to make sure we were oceanfront and Nellie's seemed to fit this description, but it was a 10 min walk instead.

  • Lovely peaceful bach - very cute

    Lovely peaceful bach - very cute. Matapouri always a great place to be. The covered deck out the front was a great idea - think we might put some of those roll-down windows on our back deck at home. Regards, Emma
