Finished my trip to New Zealand here, best decision I made for that trip. Our trip was so fast-paced that it was nice to slow it down a bit and come here and relax do a little kayaking and just sit back on the deck with a glass of wine while watching the sun set. The rooms were fantastic, clean...

My brother and his wife (from the Netherlands) were touring the North Island and we joined their 2 nights at Riverside, Matakana with excellent, roomy accommodation in a very nice environment. Spotless place, nice staff. Thank you.

Attended a day and a half work conference at Riverside. Just over an hours drive from central Auckland, yet really gave the sense of being away from it all. The venue is surrounded by rolling green hills, a river and some grape vines. The room set up for the conference was more than big enough for a group of 12...

We decided to take our teen and her friend away for the last 5 days of the school holidays. This was the prefect place to do it. Riverside really is a bach, not a hotel situation. The staff and manager are really lovely, the location stunning na the bach has everything you need. We could have taken another couple as...

We stayed for 3 nights with our son, daughter-in-law and 6 and 4 year old Grandsons, whilst visiting from the UK. We all had a wonderful time and the little boys keep asking if we can return. The weather was mixed but there is plenty to do if unable to use the swimming pool, which the boys wanted to do...

An excellent place for a restful weekend or week or more. Comfortable well appointed rooms inside and wide lawns outside for strolling. Tennis court and pool etc. for the youngsters. Bird life and rabbits in the grounds. Excellent service.

We (me, my wife and our three year old boy) stayed here for 5 nights and absolutely loved it. Incredible location equidistant to Omaha Beach, Warkworth and just about everywhere else you might want to go. The accommodation is modern, minimal and sits perfectly in the private and beautiful natural environment. Thanks Michael for looking after us- we'll be back...

What an amazing property, set amongst its own vineyard this property will take your breath away upon arrival. Our Bach was at the bottom of the property only 3min stroll to the tennis court and pool. Fabulous with 2 toddlers as we were able to kick a ball outside our Bach. The view from the others up the hill is...

Such a lovely surprise that the baches as they call the units were so spacious and everything had been thought of. Spotlessly clean and the beds were amazing. Definitely recommend to either a couple of family and each unit had its own privacy. Such a beautiful setting and out weekend couldn't have been better. We will definitely come again.

I was very impressed with this stay, the units are situated in the middle of the vineyard so the outlook is lovely, there's even a pool. The units are a really good size and have been really well thought out, it was great to have a bathroom for each bedroom, and the kitchen area was perfect and had all we...
