Lovely location. Updated basic old style unit.
Great location, loved the kayaks, adequate accommodation
Similar to the other reviews - fantastic location...loved the easy access to the estuary, we got a lot of use out of the kayaks, enjoyed the area immensely. The apartment is bottom floor (can't really see the water from the unit), is stocked with adequate but minimal dishes/pots, and could use some updating...but it was a great spot for a few days. Hosts were very inviting and kind, we had a great time in Matapouri.
Basic accomodation - and very Clean
This is a 2x bedroom older motel unit. Fantastic location. Matapouri beach is incredible. The unit has cute retro furniture. Has everything you need.
Good old kiwi bach
Although the accommodation was basic, the position was superb, right across from the lagoon and a short drive to the mermaid pools. Kayaks were provided and this really added to our experience.
Fantasic location. Inadequately resourced and serviced.
The location of this unit is amazing. However we did have a few issues with our stay. Firstly we had to email and ask for details on how to access the property 2 days before we left - they had not been provided.
When we got there we found that the place was basically clean except for a vast amount of cobwebs in all corners of each room. As we have a child who is terrified of spiders this was a big problem for us. To make it worse there was no vacuum cleaner in the unit to use so we had to make do with a broom to try and remove all the cobwebs and spiders.
The unit has a few basic supplies but I thought it was a little inadequate compared to other properties we have rented. For instance our booking was for 5 but there were only 4 plates and 4 bowls. There was no salt/pepper or sugar. There was no can opener which was very inconvenient and no oven mit which actually resulted in me burning myself.
Unfortunately one of our children was sick and vomited during the night on one of the bedrooms. It was extremely difficult to clean this up with the limited cleaning products available, so we emailed the manager the apologise and let them know. Obviously it was hard to complete an exit clean without a vacuum cleaner. We inquired whether any of the upstairs units had one but the people up there said there's was broken.
We received no reply to our email about the cleaning situation but did find an extra cleaning fee on our credit card the next day. I found this incredibly rude and annoying.
Despite the amazing location and the presence of kayaks and paddleboards available to use we would never stay here again.
