Had the absolute pleasure of spending 7 nights (Boxing Dat through New Year at Riverside Matakana. Great easy living accommodation, with all your home luxuries, in a beautiful tranquil setting. Lots to do onsite if you want to tennis, swim or kayak and only a quick trip into Matakana itself. A brilliant spot to holiday with family and/or friends. An...

It has been a lovely surprise to discover the Matakana region and stay at Riverside. We stayed in unit 11 which is seen on the right of the small promo picture, and has views across the vines, down to the river and tennis court. Accommodation is modern and spacious, my friend and I each have our own room and en...

We chose this gorgeous haven for a weekend getaway and fell in love with it. The Bach was spacious, elegant, private and brilliantly designed to accommodate extended family and friends if needed. But this time it was just us and what a perfect weekend we had. The view across the vineyard down to the river rivals Tuscany, and the west...

Absolutely serene setting with panoramic views and tuis singing in the trees. The comfy beds, the weber and the daily service combined to make it an unforgetable experience. We were celebrating a 65th birthday so the idyllic accommodation topped off a very special weekend in this region.

We recently stayed for 2 nights and we wished it was longer. The bach was big and very private. Everything we needed from a full kitchen and bbq, to a tv in the bedroom and a gas fireplace was provided. The two decks meant we could sit on whichever one was shettled from the wind. We will definitely be coming...

This large property houses at least a dozen baches but they are spatially laid out in groups of four so you do not feel like you are in a crowded location. Our bach, #1, was very private, I was worried by the driveway running alongside it but this did not create any noise of concern, in fact the location was...

We stayed here halfway through our north-half-of-North-Island trip. I consciously arranged that we stayed in a variety of accomodations: large and small hotels, B&Bs, lodges, and this bach-type (luxury bach, I'd say) accommodation. What fun! The bach is well-supplied, although "bedroom" spaces are small. Bathrooms were small but functional. If staying longer and dining within the bach, you'd have everything...

This is an idyllic location with superb accommodation - a quiet little place set in a majestic landscape. The perfect nook to retreat to after stocking up at the local market, to lounge around in front of the fire, drinking locally sourced wines and playing a friendly endless tournament of Yahtzee.
