Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 11)
Together with her husband, Christina runs her own business and they designed this home themselves. She gets a real buzz out of setting the house up for maximum comfort and helping people to have a great holiday.

Why ChristinaB59 chose Matarangi
Already living at Matarangi, the owners fell in love with this location on the harbour front - so peaceful, beautiful and unable to be built out. Set about a metre above the ground, the house makes the most of the sea and mountain views and enjoys the sun from two outdoor areas - one to the North and a glass-protected courtyard facing the harbour to the west.
What makes this House unique
The property is harbour front, just a short walk to the beach and even shorter to the golf course or boat ramp.

This is a stunning house with every amenity you might want.
We loved our stay here. We couldn’t have been more comfortable. The house exceeded our expectations. The views are gorgeous, and the owners have thought of everything.
Beautiful modern home with all the whistles and bells for a fabulous stay.
What a fabulous location and gorgeous home. Our group just loved the house with all the space and touches of luxury. Christina was a great host, very helpful and responsive. Thanks for a superb stay!
Modern, well appointed, good configuration for a couple of families, bonus bikes and kayaks
Situated a one minute's walk from the estuary and lovely view at high tide. A good 6-7 min walk to beach. House is very new and can comfortably accommodate 8-10 people - has a guest house which can sleep up to 4 and has a separate bathroom but no fridge or cooking facilities. Small but nice outdoor living area, thoughtfully screened off from prevailing westerlies allowing dining outside in most wind conditions. Fablous viewing area for sunsets.
Great kitchen with nifty sliding window out to BBQ/dining area. Good sized double fridge/freezer (but this is the only fridge) requiring us to keep beverages chilled in a chilly bin and buy ice everyday. Very limited serving platters, bowls, ramekins etc, so would suggest taking some of your own if you serve canapés and do buffet-style catering.
The teenagers would say best bonus was the air con in almost every room which was very much welcomed.
We loved the large garage and selection of bikes and two really good kayaks on wheels which we just pushed down to the estuary. Great washing machine and dryer and generous amount of washing powder. Also the outdoor hose was fantastic to wash down the boat and watergear.
Christina, the host, and her husband could not have been more helpful, turning up within minutes to mend the icemaker and other maintenance issues. The only reason I haven't given it five stars is the lack of a second fridge and dining/entertaining utensils etc which for us was of high importance but for others who are not foodies or have teenagers may not be necessary. All in all a fabulous 5 Star property, beautifully clean, comfortable beds, stunning bathrooms, the master with a really great walk in wardrobe with huge amounts of space to hang up all your clothes - plus loads of drawers so you could totally unpack and feel you were at home. Thanks for lovely stay.
Thank you for your review, and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We followed your suggestion to add a couple of platters and an extra salad bowl.
Great place with heaps of room.
Well appointed house with a raft of bells and whistles that elevated our enjoyment of the property. Would definitely stay again.
Thanks for your time to post such a lovely review. We're pleased you had a good time. Thanks too for looking after our home so well.
Perfect for holidays - so nice, you'll never want to leave!
The house was spacious, quiet, and very clean in a private setting. Pictures can’t begin to do it justice; it completely exceeded our expectations. The house was filled with modern amenities including digital door locks, an alarm system, an entertainment system that easily connected to all our devices with speakers and controls in every room, heated floors/towel racks, and a cozy gas fireplace (all top notch – they spared no expense). Christina was a responsive and gracious host. There were only three of us for a few days during the winter – we found plenty of space to spread out in a house that could sleep twelve! We used the kitchen primarily for coffee (use the espresso machine and milk frother for flat whites) and breakfast, but along with the outdoor grill it was ready for all sorts of cooking adventures. The location was lovely, with spectacular views, easy access to the bay for launching kayaks, and a short 1-km trek to a pristine 4-km beach. Once I got the hang of driving on the left on two-lane winding roads through the mountains, we found plenty to do even in winter when many of the shops and restaurants had reduced hours. Either Whitianga or Coromandel was just a 30-minute drive (but Whitianga was easier). Since there were no crowds in winter, it made activities like booking a massage at the spa (do it) easy at the last minute. We particularly enjoyed Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach, another 30 minutes past Whitianga, also not crowded. Highly recommended.
We stayed here in late feb with 8 adults.
We stayed here in late feb with 8 adults. The property was incredible and very luxurious. The best aspect was the indoor/outdoor flow that provided multiple areas for us to socialize or just watch the view. There is one self-contained area that was perfect for my newly married son and his wife. The view across the Harbour is stunning and the gorgeous sandy beach is just a 10 minute walk. If you want some really special memories, then book it up.
