Two groups of us stayed at these accommodation's, one group in the 2 bedroom Kaka Lodge and one in the upstairs Ruru Lodge. The accommodation's are very well equipped and have very peaceful settings with some great views on site. The is also outdoor furnishings. Things to note are that Ruru Lodge needs to have the air con put on so the unit is cooled (in summer); this property is up an extremely steep drive (the first part is unsealed then it is sealed) up a steep drive past several properties up about 400 metres. This was daunting the first time but after driving up it a couple of times, it was no problem. There is plenty of flat parking on site near the rooms. The laundry is through the shared lobby area so recommend to keep (Kaka) door shut for privacy. I thought the photographs on line did not do the accommodations justice and they are much better in reality. The hosts were very helpful. We were kindly upgraded to the Kaka Lodge after we originally were booked for the smaller accommodation. This place is about 15 minutes from Matakana Village. Highly recommended for holiday accommodation and it is located next to the Tawharanui Lodge venue
