Destination Matapouri

Family-friendly holiday home in Matapouri
A clean and tidy holiday home which is just a 2 minute walk to Matapouri Bay - surely one of the most beautiful beaches in Northland. The bach consists of 3 bedrooms which can comfortably accomodate 8 people. The bach is conveniently located close to the estuary which is a great spot to take the kids kayaking. We have 2 kayaks available to be used by guests. The property is fully fenced and is flat - ideal for parking the boat. We have recently added a large deck to the property which is great during the summer months.

The bach is also close to some other magical spots - including Sandy Bay (surfer's mecca), Wooleys Bay and the beautiful Whale Bay. Tutukaka is just 6km away where dive trips to the Poor Knights islands or fishing charters can be arranged.

There are many other activities that you can take part in during your stay - these include swimming, snorkelling, surfing, golf, walking, fishing, cycling and mountain biking. Golf courses are located at Whangarei (30 minute drive) and further north at Hikurangi.

2/5 Poor

A basic house with a central location. We had to leave a day early as we had no cold water in the kitchen because the handle broke when we tried to use it. My 6 year old threw a few nappies in scented bags over the fence we tried to get them as quick as possible & apologise but were sworn at by the neighbours. I have tried to contact the property manager several times for a refund for our last night but not contactable.

Great place for a family holiday
Had a great stay with Family and our little dog. A well set up house in a handy location. Matapouri is such a beautiful place. Kids loved the tramp and playing soccer on the large section plus 2min walk to the shop/tennis court/ and great fish n chips at the shop.
