I cannot say enough wonderful things about Matriki without writing a novel! Not only is it an affordable slice of an otherwise expensive destination, it is also the best slice! Close to everything, lovely charming hut accommodation, amusing critters, cats, chickens, hermit crabs galore, and a perfect groomed beach which has world class snorkeling right out of your door, not...

We stayed at Matriki for six nights and we loved the beach hut right at the beach! Yes, the hut was small and basic, but realy, how much time do you spend there when you are on a bounty island with the beach starting right at your doorstep. With (beach) towels and a mozzie net provided, all you realy need... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Matriki Beach Huts. This little piece of paradise is just bursting with character and ambiance. The huts are rustic which in a way adds to the whole Robinson Crusoesque deserted island vibe enhanced by the fact that there are only 5 huts/rooms in total. The rooms are basic however - just a step above... More

Don't miss Matriki if you are looking for the place to be for not a lot of money in Aitutaki. You have everything you need there, from your own beach bungalow, very unique and an amazing view. Scooters, snorkel gear, your hosts have everything for you to rent if you need. We did the sorkeling day trip with them, and... More

We stayed 12 nights with Tracy and Trevor at the Matriki Beach Huts. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The two of them try to do everything to make your holiday something special. The huts are really clean, as well the toilets and they clean up the beach every morning (even the 5 star resorts next to Matriki don't... More

We returned a week ago after a 6 day stay with only positives to report. This place was worth the three flights from Adelaide. Others had far longer journeys and this indicates they thought it worth the effort. Comments here show that the management has changed and Tracey and Trevor work flat out to make improvements and keep visitors happy.... More

We rented the entire Tree House which was ideal for a family of four - our teenage girls loved being on their own downstairs! Being able to snorkel right outside the hut was amazing and I highly recommend Trevor's snorkelling trips - and the lunch (especially the coconut pie!) We also went on a whale watching trip with Trevor and... More

We did not stay in the Matriki house but we had heard very possitive reviews about the lagoon tours with Trevor and Tracey. And we were not dissapointed! The whole family of five had a fantastic day in the lagoon with superb snorkeling. Great lunch spot on one of the islands. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a... More

It's all been said before, but this really is an outstanding holiday accommodation option. So beautiful, so laid back, with all the comforts you really need and so many bonus extras - heavenly lagoon right at your doorstep, brilliant snorkelling trips (yes, Trev, I was always last out of the water - so much to see!) and great companionship with...

My third stay at Matriki Beach Huts has yielded yet another happy, buzz-filled experience. The huts are delightfully kitted out, with an extra special touch to make you feel comfortable and cared for. The location is to die for, right on the beach on one of the most beautiful parts of the Aitutaki Lagoon. Lie there in bed at night,... More
