The Matakana Kiwi Baches are remarkable nice. Fully equipped kitchen and a very nice layout as living area. There is a swimming pool for the guests to use and a barbecue plus a very nice river front. All in all very suitable for a couple to stay a few nights and just relax. Relax is the key word when you...

The modern 'Kiwi baches' at Riverside Matakana are well designed and appointed, with the most amazing view over the vines to the river. Waking up here was a real pleasure, in absolute peace and quiet, despite the other units nearby. Great spot for a girls' getaway, with two showers, so no taking turns for the bathroom. Really handy to Matakana...

Each cabin has two double bedrooms and baths, living and kitchen as well as the garage converted to two twin beds, you pay per head for the extras by its worth it. A BBQ out the back, all the kitchen acessories (except stove and small...

Large, modern and great indoor/outdoor flow. Main bedroom was next to driveway used by 4 other units, and had no privacy or opening windows, so we chose to sleep in the second bedroom off if the lounge. That room and the lounge had opening windows, but none had mosquito netting so we didn't sleep well. The swimming pool was crowded...

We decided to stay in the Matakana region over a long weekend and chose Riverside. What a great choice that turned out to be !

We have visited this complex three times since we found it on our biannual pilgrimage to NZ. What a beautiful location. The Bach is well thought through providing all you need to cook, sleep and relax. I can't rate it high enough.

We are a family of 6. 2 boys and 2 girls aged 10 - 17. We were joined by another family with 1 boy. It is a perfect set up as you have 2 houses next to each other. The house itself is 2 bedrooms, with a sleep out adjoining the main house. It is fully serviced, so it's great...

We booked here for a 3 day break and couldn't have been more delighted. Lovely and quiet with amazing views and we've never stayed somewhere that was so well equipped. Great BBQ on the deck with every cooking utensil needed. Nice and close to town and close to some really great wineries. We'll be back!!

We have stayed as a couple, and with family on a number of occasions and my expectations are always exceeded at Riverside ( and I am fussy!). The self contained apartments are set in beautiful and well maintained grounds on a hill side running down to the river, so many have water views. The apartments are set in clusters but...
