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

We fell in love with the charm of the place immediately after arrival and didn't envy any of the luxury resorts next door, it was just our thing and we felt very welcome by Tracey right from the beginning. We like the beach hut style from backpacking in Thailand and this one is as magic as any of those places... More

We visited last month and were immediately impressed with the cleanliness of the huts and jaw-dropping postcard scenery. The reef is stunning, the sunsets impeccable, and sleeping with the sound of lapping waves is undeniably serene. We did, however, find it difficult to get out and enjoy the lagoon, as we had to be very forthcoming in order to organise... More

Hi and thanks for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed Matriki Beach huts, we provide one of the cheapest places on the island, whilst being in the best location, beach etc. We are a small budget place, it is just Tracey and I and we have five beach huts to look after. We do private boat tours when... More

Lovely location but bad experience with manager. I booked the double-level beach hut for my family 6 months in advance and put down 50% deposit as required. 2 wks before arriving, unforeseen circumstances meant family couldn't come. Told manager that I was happy to downsize accommodation just for myself if someone else wanted the other room/level (which might make it... More

We thank you for your review and are very upset that you did not leave with a better experience. You did say it was a great location and the managers were friendly. Mostly we are upset that the guest never mentioned the issue to us and the first we heard about it was a post on Trip Advisor. I have... More

Aitutaki is gorgeous. Matriki is a gem: rustic beach huts located just off the beach so that you can appreciate the incredible sunsets from your porch. Trevor and Tracy manage Matriki and were always good for stories, dinner reservations, organizing a botanical garden tour, lessons on how to peel and grate coconuts, where to buy organic vegetables, etc. We went...

The beach huts are the most adorable things ever. The Treehut, where we stayed, was well equipped, accommodating and the bed was very comfortable! Each hut has its own shower, but the Treehut's shower is an outside shower, which we found great. Matriki fosters a great community spirit and we spoke with all the other guests and formed great holiday... More
