My wife and I had a great time here, excellant respite from the big smoke The rooms were big and roomy, with good kitchen facilities. From the 'baches' you get lovely countryside views, the walk down to the jetty is also worth it. If you get time I would also go to the local Matakana markets We will definately be...

This resort is paradise. It is so much more than we dreamed. Sitting on the deck, looking at the views, listening to the birds and having a glass of wine what more could you ask for? The chalets are all secluded so you don't feel that people are looking in on you - it is so private. It is a...

We stayed one night at the end of summer and wish we stayed more. It was a hot day so we had a swim in the pool and then sat in the late afternoon sun on the deck. From our room we could see an absolutely gorgeous sunset which we enjoyed every minute of. The unit was spacious and private...

I agree with the previous review....not 5 star but charging 5 star prices. We have two young children and this place was totally unsuitable for them. The garage/come sleep out across a deck was hopeless for the children and they wanted to be inside with us. We ended up converting the two couches in the living area into beds. The...

: Nice setting, pity about the so-called sleep out. Very nice setting, with wooden bach type villas, described as 5 star. With 5 star prices. But not 5 star! Clean and well serviced but the accommodation for the 3 bedroom units is not as advertised on the website and other publicity material. The layout is odd with the main TV...
