We stayed for 3 nights with our son, daughter-in-law and 6 and 4 year old Grandsons, whilst visiting from the UK. We all had a wonderful time and the little boys keep asking if we can return. The weather was mixed but there is plenty to do if unable to use the swimming pool, which the boys wanted to do all the time. The accommodation was perfect for us all. Clean, comfortable, good kitchen and we were able to BBQ - excellent food from the Saturday market. Suggest going early as it gets very busy.
We only had one slight worry in that the annexe for the children is across the decking from the main accommodation. We got around it by adults using the annexe, in case the children awoke in the night and wandered out. No problem for older children.
The cinema in Matakana is also a plus, which we resorted to one very wet morning.
We would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful location with it's stunning views and will definitely return on our next visit to the family in NZ.
