We spent 2 nights at Ambiente escaping from Auckland and it was a very enjoyable experience. This is a lovely property and the hosts are very friendly. As we were the only guests we joined Lesley and Norman for breakfast and we had a great chat. It was very quiet and we are sure we heard a Kiwi in the... More

Very late review as my partner and I stayed here in September 2011. The room was beautiful and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and made us a lovely breakfast. Very relaxing and quiet location.

My mother and I stayed at Ambiente about a year ago. We were visiting family in Auckland and wanted to duck up to Matakana for a couple of nights to browse their fabulous Saturday markets (and a few wineries). My husband and I had previously stayed at Takatu lodge and I wanted to try something new, so I found Ambiente... More

The setting and house is lovely, the hosts are very welcoming and make the stay very comfortable. They offer good advice on the local area. There are good places to eat and drink in Matakana village, but you do need a car to get there. The only things that did not give this full marks are the following; no en-suite... More

We had the pleasure of spending 2 luxurious nights at Ambiente and were very impressed with the 5 star accommodation, the delicious gourmet breakfast, and the hospitality of Ron & Patricia. The big beautiful deck with the fantastic view of the countryside was therapeutic in the quiet of the evenings. The one bedroom apartment type unit was very modern, well... More

Absolutely wonderful stay, even though it was pouring, we loved every moment of it. Total luxury, unbelievable breakfast with such attention to detail - fit for a king. We felt VERY spoilt. Highly reccommended for couples who want to get away alone for a break.......
