The modern 'Kiwi baches' at Riverside Matakana are well designed and appointed, with the most amazing view over the vines to the river. Waking up here was a real pleasure, in absolute peace and quiet, despite the other units nearby. Great spot for a girls' getaway, with two showers, so no taking turns for the bathroom. Really handy to Matakana township and very comfortable. Nice to be able to switch on the 'fire' at the touch of a button and be toasty warm.

The layout of the great cabins suits a peaceful family getaway and a broader group. Each cabin has two double bedrooms and baths, living and kitchen as well as the garage converted to two twin beds, you pay per head for the extras by its worth it. A BBQ out the back, all the kitchen acessories (except stove and small fridge).
This was our second visit in 5 years and they are still in good condition. No A/c and Mosquitos are around so bring repellent. Very helpful reception and excellent stay.

I am a local wedding hairdresser and offer a mobile service for my brides.I am always so pleased when they tell me they are getting ready at Riverside Matakana as it is I believe its the perfect preparation venue.Good light, plenty of space, fabulous for pre wedding photos and has everything a bride needs to have a successful wedding morning.

Room Tip: I would say there is not a bad one they are all equally private and all exactly the same lay out with superb views of a country setting .

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.

We decided to stay in the Matakana region over a long weekend and chose Riverside. What a great choice that turned out to be !
The complex itself is only a few minutes drive from Matakana Village and short drive form a wide choice of beaches. Well designed units are clustered in a few groupings, which are set amongst manicured grounds and a small vineyard.
Cleaver plantings ensures privacy.
The units are essentially small holiday homes, the one we were in had two bathrooms and was well appointed. One of the bathrooms contained a washing machine and dryer. A small kitchen would allow self catering, and has all the basic kitchen utensils that you would need, complete with a small refrigerator, microwave, cooking top, and a dish washer it's well set up. Complete with sky ( the NZ version of cable ), stable free wifi , and daily servicing it's a great holiday spot.
A spacious living area would suit a small family staying as the unit itself had 2 double beds and a sleep-out in converted garage alongside could sleep another two in single beds . The units were very clean and clearly well maintained. Large sliding doors and large windows allows maximum sunlight ( and breeze if required ). A deck outside alongside the grape vines is a nice outdoor area. Contained in the Riverside complex is a swimming pool / tennis court and boat ramp.
