We stayed here with our two small children and had such an amazing weekend. The scenery is stunning, the 3 bedroom house is wonderful, well kept and comfortable. It has everything you need including a spa pool overlooking the water. Spent nights supping local wine, listening to morporks in the trees, looking up to stars. Gorgeous quality time while the...

Our family of 5 adults stayed here for one night on the way up to the Bay of Islands. The hosts were welcoming and friendly. The accommodation was superbly laid out and spotlessly clean. Everything was new and in good working order. The washing machine was a bonus and the hosts had even provided washing powder. Breakfast was provided in... More

We stayed in the 3 bedroom house for the last part of our 3 month trip to New Zealand and it was fantastic. Very clean and new and the owners very helpful. It is a lovely area and wished we had more time.

We went for a much needed weekend away to de stress in peace. We stayed in the one bedroom cottage. This was the perfect place. Total privacy in an AMAZING setting with character. The owners are lovely and it's nice to know they are around. But only if you need them. Otherwise they leave you to it. Loved the pool... More

The other reviewers have captured the beauty of this place, and the hospitality of the owners who were very professional and hospitable hosts. The 1 bedroom cottage is awesome, with lots of space and interesting architectural features. Stunning views and total privacy. The sound of birdsong is the only thing that breaks silence, together with the gentle rustling of the... More

Sandspit Retreat is tucked away at the end of the estuary overlooking calm water. We were lucky to have a clear sky with full moon the night we stayed. We had a great time playing pool & table tennis after dark in the games room, before having a spa outside our house.The three bedroom house would be perfect for taking... More

My partner and I needed to get away and I randomly chose a place on the map, came onto trip advisor and found this beautiful property, what a find!! We stayed for 3 nights and had an amazing, relaxing time in the 1 bedroom cottage. We hardly went anywhere, and pretty much hung out at the cottage, become scrabble experts... More

A friend and I recently spent a weekend at the Sandspit Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a chalet and the peace and quiet was remarkable. The only sounds were the native birds in the marshes. The accommodation was clean and spacious the food (both breakfast and dinner) superb and mine hosts were... More

Matakana and surrounds... a truly beautiful area to visit with numerous places to go and things to do and see. But where do you stay to feel you have gotten "away from it all" without being too far removed from the centre of the area? We found the answer... Sandspit Retreat! This property provides everything you need (and more) for... More
