“Amazing property, great for a family”
Reviewed November 24, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We were in Matakana for a family wedding and this house was a great base for that. It is spacious, with good size rooms, a great out door area by the pool and has good views.. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. WIFI worked without a hitch We would recommend this home to any discerning holiday maker who appreciate quality and comfort in all respects.

Spacious and luxurious Lodge and the 'Barn' also excellent for one couple. Very warm, beautiful views over the vineyards. Loved the outside entertainment area with huge BBQ and all facilities.
