If you want Matakana 5 star, this is it....

Pros: Everything !!!!! :):):)
Cons: Nothing to be honest !!!! Really.... :)
Location: Visited Morris & James (pots), Sculptureum.... this place is amazing, really special on so many levels... Marine Discovery ...worth the drive !!!!
Excellent facility, high end accommodation, extremely good attention to detail, very well appointed, nothing too much trouble. Location was perfect for us, lovely and quite, just love the gas fire, cozy but spacious, all the utensils plus some in the kitchen and beautifully manicured grounds. Was arriving late which was no issue at all, asked for extra pillows and blankets, again, not a problem. Lovely beds, perfect softness for us, fabulous sleep, tranquil evenings, just what we were after, well located to Matakana and surrounding area, felt relaxed and refreshed when we left.... Have stayed all around the world, this is a real gem which more people should know about ....we will return !!!!!!!

Ideal for two friends or couples, due to the separate bedroom and ensuite bathroom arrangement

beautiful setting- excellent facilities

Pros: Comfy,exquisite setting -great facilities.Swimming pool was heated to wonderful temperature. We swam at 5pm on a cool May evening and it was awesome
Cons: Perfect for me
Location: so much to see and do in Matakana. visit the Scultureum - lunch at vineyard- stroll the beaches etc
Loved the fact that every unit was quite private- we ever overlooked anyone at any time. Beautiful setting-views etc and accommodation excellent. two bathrooms and a sleepout gave extra room and privacy

Nice setting, close to town, comfortable beds

Pros: The setting & comfortable atmosphere
Cons: No cochroaches & daddy long legs in the kitchen
Location: Everything was there that we needed, including a heated pool, petanque & tennis court.
We were very happy with the accommodation & the distance to town as we were in Matakana for a wedding. We had a few drives around the area & found it to be a beautiful spot to visit. Would definitely recommend to friends to go for a visit.

A great stay

A great relaxing place. Set in a rural countryside. Close to Auckland, clean and tidy. The free wifi is good and the well equipped kitchen meant you have the option of staying in and enjoy the peaceful setting.
