Description

[Closed June-December 2018 for repairs and maintenance]Self-contained 1960s family bach directly facing quiet, grassed reserve and adjoining the Matapouri estuary. The main beach is a short walk or an even shorter swim away. It's a pleasure to be there and always hard to leave. Please check dates noted as available before inquiring.

We stayed 3 nights recently with perfect weather and I must say that we thoroughly enjoyed every minute we were there. The bach was as described well equipped and comfortable for our family but it offered so much more, the kids enjoyed playing pool and darts and made use of the boogie boards when they were out in the water - the bach is in a private quiet area which has the reserve and the sandy bottom estuary a few steps away - the main beach is stunning and there are so many walks and surrounding beaches to visit we highly recommend if your looking for that good ol kiwi bach with some nz history - thanks again simon and lisa we will definitely be booking for another holiday soon!!
Kind regards Norma geoff and kids

Thank you Simon and Lisa. The bach was exactly as you described it with a fantastic location. The bach was clean and tidy and had every thing you would want and more. This sort of property is what memories are made of. A great spot for kids with the estuary at your door step and having some equipment at the property was a bonus. We will be going back to your bach.

We've hired this bach about 3 or 4 times now, and found it suited our purposes very well. It's a basic bach but has all the amenities needed - and you just can't beat the location - a stone's throw from one of the most beautiful estuaries I've seen, and a quick paddle or wade to stunning Matapouri beach. Navigating the estuary has become part of the adventure of staying here!

The bach is quite simple and quirky, but we love how it's not at all pretentious - it's not luxury accommodation, but we don't want that. It feels like a traditional kiwi bach. It's in a quiet part of Matapouri, facing out to a reserve with the water just beyond, with only a few houses around - very peaceful.

We stayed at this property for 3 nights and it was a nightmare. Filthy would be the best word to describe the condition of this bach. Everything was covered with mold. Kitchen was absolutely disgusting. Cooking and dining utensils had not been cleaned by previous tenants. Animal hair covered sofa and beds. Fleas (or bedbugs) made sleep impossible. Owners obviously only interested in collecting rent. A complete rip-off.

Had a great stay. Unfortunate previous comments...washing machine worked fine (it is old school with ringer on top). No flea worry at all. Owner kind and accommodating. Bach outfitted with all the necessary stuff plus some.

Matapouri Bay is perfect for families-safe swimming for kids. Would have given it a 5 except that the washing machine wasn't working,(difficult with three small children) and had to come back a couple of nights early as bedding was uncomfortable and had fleas. Owners were apoligetic-and refunded our last two nights. Would rent again if put in new bedding.Sounds like they will be addressing these problems.

We were most concerned by these (constructive) comments and immediately took remedial actions. Our own children and friends slept there just before this tenancy with no issue but with humid weather and further impending guests we took this seriously. The bedding was stripped; the bach was aerosol fumigated and the wooden floor, especially crevices, treated with residual flea-specific insecticide. There were no untoward reports from the two subsequent tenancies. The washing machine drain hose is replaced to cure the leak that had it out of action. We do feel apolgetic as we would like stays to be a good as our own.
