Matai House is a neat getaway both in Winter and Summer.

There is lots of space to relax both inside and outside, including a large deck and big flat outdoors space.

Matai House has polished Matai floors and is very well appointed. The kitchen is a real cook's kitchen and is first rate.

The house accommodates up to 8 people in four bedrooms. There are two bedrooms both with queen sized beds and a third bedroom with a double-bunk (2 down, 1 up). The 4th bed is a double sized futon bed in a private sunroom.

The kitchen and dining areas are together, with a table that seats 6, which makes for easy catering for family groups.

In summer, enjoy the outdoor spaces, surf, sand hills, fishing, Tararua Forest Park and sunny deck.

In winter, Matai House is warm with a firebox and firewood supplied, and is well insulated. Enjoy a quiet time, beach walks, DVDs, outlet shopping stores, brunch and dining experiences.

There is a big 42" telly in case it's wet and a great stereo system. Bring your CDs and DVDs. There is also a good collection of music. Bring your iPod/iPad or Bluetooth devices too which are able to be connected to the stereo.

There is a minimum two-night stay year round.

Special conditions: This property is not suitable for unwatched toddlers. The lawn at rear has potential hazards... If a child wants to bush-bash through the shrubs and plantings, they will find a drop of about 3m.

  • The property is in a good location, about a 10 minute walk...

    The property is in a good location, about a 10 minute walk from the beach and a short drive to the main centre. The house accommodated us beautifully with large rooms, a deck to sit at outdoors and lots of play area indoors and out for the children. We would highly recommend it for anyone with a family who wants a relaxing time away for a few days.
