A clean and tidy holiday home which is just a 2 minute walk to Matapouri Bay - surely one of the most beautiful beaches in Northland. The bach consists of 3 bedrooms which can comfortably accomodate 8 people. The bach is conveniently located close to the estuary which is a great spot to take the kids kayaking. We have 2 kayaks available to be used by guests. The property is fully fenced and is flat - ideal for parking the boat. We have recently added a large deck to the property which is great during the summer months.

The bach is also close to some other magical spots - including Sandy Bay (surfer's mecca), Wooleys Bay and the beautiful Whale Bay. Tutukaka is just 6km away where dive trips to the Poor Knights islands or fishing charters can be arranged.

There are many other activities that you can take part in during your stay - these include swimming, snorkelling, surfing, golf, walking, fishing, cycling and mountain biking. Golf courses are located at Whangarei (30 minute drive) and further north at Hikurangi.

  • We had a fantastic stay in Matapouri

    We had a fantastic stay in Matapouri. The house was just perfect for us 2 families with 4 little kids. We couldn't think of anything negative about the house and we would love to go back there again. 2 kayaks there were an added bonus and we all enjoyed kayaking in the sea and estuary.

    Fantastic spot - even room for a game of cricket! The bach was superb, very clean and tidy and well kitted out - everything you could possibly want, even down to the kayaks! Fabulous - thank you so much.
