We are a family of 6. 2 boys and 2 girls aged 10 - 17. We were joined by another family with 1 boy. It is a perfect set up as you have 2 houses next to each other. The house itself is 2 bedrooms, with a sleep out adjoining the main house.
It is fully serviced, so it's great coming back to your beds made, dishwasher put on and a clean place!
There is a swimming pool here and a tennis court. They supply you with swimming towels. So that is one less thing you need to pack. They also empty your rubbish and recycle bins daily.
There is a washing machine and dryer, and even a clothes horse, which I placed under the pagoda in between the main house and sleep out, clothes dried very well.
Matakana village is a 3 min drive down the road, which is very handy.
It works perfect for us, but my brother was staying with friends at another house here, he has a 1 year old, and they were staying in the sleep out. He found it quite awkward to go to the toilet at night as you have to walk in the bedrooms in the main house to access the toilets.
There is also wifi which is a must with kids these days!
This is our second time here, and will certainly be coming back again. Absolutely love this place.
