We booked the accommodationfor three nights in January (we were in Auckland for a wedding). This is a very tricky one as I cannot quite make up my mind about what I think. Our first slight dissapointment when we arrived was the gravel roads. The roads to the cabins (?) are gravel and very narrow and I certainly would not... More

The place was very clean, well equipped and the staff were superb, thank you! We really enjoyed the views, the tranquility and the proximity of so many wonderful beaches and of course Matakana itself.

The Bach is well designed, very spacious and fully self contained. Fantastic location, so peaceful listening to all the tuis flying around. Have stayed at Riverside twice now and look forward to our next time.

Lots to do onsite if you want to tennis, swim or kayak and only a quick trip into Matakana itself. A brilliant spot to holiday with family and/or friends. An... More

We stayed in unit 11 which is seen on the right of the small promo picture, and has views across the vines, down to the river and tennis court. Accommodation is modern and spacious, my friend and I each have our own room and en... More

We chose this gorgeous haven for a weekend getaway and fell in love with it. The Bach was spacious, elegant, private and brilliantly designed to accommodate extended family and friends if needed. But this time it was just us and what a perfect weekend we had. The view across the vineyard down to the river rivals Tuscany, and the west... More

Absolutely serene setting with panoramic views and tuis singing in the trees. The comfy beds, the weber and the daily service combined to make it an unforgetable experience. We were celebrating a 65th birthday so the idyllic accommodation topped off a very special weekend in this region.

We recently stayed for 2 nights and we wished it was longer. The bach was big and very private. Everything we needed from a full kitchen and bbq, to a tv in the bedroom and a gas fireplace was provided. The two decks meant we could sit on whichever one was shettled from the wind. We will definitely be coming... More
