This is a place where you can truly get away from it all. Views for miles are of rolling green hills and trees with nothing disturbing the sound of the wind in the trees. Our cabin (Bach) was well equipped - it was a little warm when we arrived and the fridge was turned off, but once the doors and... More

The units are well designed with many amenities in them, including decent knives, washing machine, dryer, and barbecue. The outlook from the units is great, and each has an undercover area and a deck. The room is spacious, but not walls are flexible sliders, with gaps in them. Good for families. One thing not apparent from the photos is that... More

What a lovely place to stay and escape to from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Each cabin was like a flash city hotel inside with modern clean facilities and upmarket décor. The full slider wall partitioning added flexibility to the room layout, allowing open and private space as/when needed. Cooking facilities were adequate for us to take... More

What a lovely spot. The outlook from Bach 2 was lovely across the vines then the river to the other side of the valley. The unit was lovely with everything you need. The design of the units is also very clever with a nice deck and bbq. Definitely a come again place.

You know when you have arrived with at the Riverside Matakana as the staff know implicitly that you are there because you need to be. A getaway, a Sna-caction as we called it, simply 24 hours of bliss. A quick raid of Nosh in the Matakana Markets and a quick stop at the locally wineries to ensure we had ample... More

We spent a lovely weekend breathing the fresh country air and taking in the relaxing views at Riverside during recovery from a major injury. The Bach style accommodation is a real touch of Kiwi. The facilities and provisions are well thought out and placed on the site to give good levels of privacy. Comfortable beds and day furniture. Warm and... More

My partner decided to surprise me with a getaway to Matakana for my birthday and he had booked Riverside for it, can I just say how beautiful the surroundings are and how amazing their facilities in the area are kept. The bach itself was sensational, very roomy, well equipped, clean and the level of comfort was exceptional. Can't go past... More

A great place to escape the city for the weekend. So much to do with the kids too and great places to eat. Very restful, fantastic beds and well equipped baches make it the perfect place to getaway with kids. We have been here both with the kids and without, and it is great for both. Also would be good...

The perfect place to get away from city life. Stayed here with a friend to celebrate a significant birthday. the units were really well equipped and designed to be private. We cooked up a storm and drank wine on the deck watching the sun set. So relaxing it was hard to leave.

We stayed here the night before Father's day with the kids. What a great place. Every unit is very private and secluded,. You wouldn't know that there was anyone else around. A night in the country side made the perfect end to a tough week. With a separate sleep out and plenty of room inside we had the ideal nights... More
