A great place to escape the city for the weekend. So much to do with the kids too and great places to eat. Very restful, fantastic beds and well equipped baches make it the perfect place to getaway with kids. We have been here both with the kids and without, and it is great for both. Also would be good...

The perfect place to get away from city life. Stayed here with a friend to celebrate a significant birthday. the units were really well equipped and designed to be private. We cooked up a storm and drank wine on the deck watching the sun set. So relaxing it was hard to leave.

We stayed here the night before Father's day with the kids. What a great place. Every unit is very private and secluded,. You wouldn't know that there was anyone else around. A night in the country side made the perfect end to a tough week. With a separate sleep out and plenty of room inside we had the ideal nights...

This is one of the best places we've been to for a weekend getaway. All the little things that normally bug you in holiday accommodation are not left to chance here. Heaps of space in the lodging, immaculate grounds and picturesque views await. Can't wait to come back.

We spent a long weekend at Riverside Matakana. A beautiful property situated amongst grape vines with stunning views. Very relaxing with all the home comforts and plenty of space for the kids to bike and run around with no roads nearby.

We had a fabulous relaxing long weekend in the great little bach. All the comforts, great view and we loved the fire for cosy nights in. The hosts made us feel very welcome. We spent a great morning at the Brick Bay Sculpture Walk, there is something for everyone there.

Recently stayed here with my nearly teenage daughters and have to say this was one of the loveliest places we've stayed! Everything you could want was already catered for. Really clean and beautifully decorated. Loads of room, warming fire, covered deck, outdoor pool, etc. etc. Our hosts were delightful, friendly and very helpful, as were all the staff we encountered...

Wen had a fantastic weekend stay at Riverside Matakana. The setting was private and sunny with great views. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The area has so much to do, the real highlight was the Tarawhanui Regional Park, great beach and awesome trails with incredible bird life, a must do.
