Large, modern and great indoor/outdoor flow. Main bedroom was next to driveway used by 4 other units, and had no privacy or opening windows, so we chose to sleep in the second bedroom off if the lounge. That room and the lounge had opening windows, but none had mosquito netting so we didn't sleep well.
The swimming pool was crowded and the water looked murky, but there are nice beaches nearby so we skipped using the pool.
At some times of day the queue of cars entering Matakana extends beyond the intersection with Green Rd, making it challenging to drive into town (until someone lets you into the queue).
We were searching for boutique accommodation. This wasn't boutique, but it was of a high standard. If they install insect screens we would have given 5 stars.
