“Idyllic location, great spot for kids”
Reviewed March 20, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The beach at Matapouri is really beautiful. The apartments are about 300m from the beach and across the road from the estuary behind the beach. The estuary is fantastic for kids, shallow and safe and they had lots of fun there, so much so that it was hard to drag them away from it.

This area is very quiet and not commercialised. Matapouri only had one convenience store, but it had most basic needs and even decent coffee and takeaway food. And it was only 400m from the apartment.

The apartment was basic but comfortable enough. Kitchen was ok, not very well equipped, we had to ask for a coffee maker. Lots of towels provided and the owners offered us the use of a paddle board, kayaks and even some tandem bikes. They were friendly and welcoming.

We were lucky to have the upstairs apartment at the front, with great views of the estuary. We were there for 6 nights and the time flew, we were sorry to leave.

Great trails in the area too... the track from Matapouri to Whale Bay is fab and the climb to the Mermaid Pools (at low tide), although steep was well worth it.

“Extremely family friendly location”
Reviewed April 2, 2017 for a stay in April 2017
person found this review helpful

We stayed for 3 nights with our 10mo old daughter and loved the place. It is opposite a little bay which is perfect for toddlers. All beaches are close by and there are even kayaks, SUBs and a tandem bike. Matapouri is a relaxed location with only one store, perfect to relax. Very beautiful spot and super friendly, laid back hosts with 2 kids. The apartment has 2 bedrooms and a small bathroom, large living room and large balcony overlooking the bay with some deck chairs to relax! Would always come back!
