This home is perfect fir a family, prime location, spotlessly clean. The backyard was great for our young baby to crawl around on while we entertained, being able to use the barbecue on the large back deck is just beautiful. Nothing better than morning coffee on the front deck looking out over the bay. Highly recommended. Ad is also very easy and pleasant to deal with.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Vista. The House is clean, comfortable, well equipped. Back yard was perfect for children to play, front deck has lovely views and is sheltered for meals. Matheson Bay is an easy walk away and is quiet with friendly, mainly family, groups about.. The Playground and coffee truck at the beach is excellent for families.
Ad was great to deal with, good communication. I highly recommend this house and would stay there again

I rented out Matheson Bay Vista for my family who was visiting from New York for my 30th. Communication with Ad was easy and he was always very accommodating and quick to respond with different requests/questions. The house was exactly as pictured, if not better! All of the rooms were immaculate, bathroom with the claw foot tub so enjoyable and the view spectacular. We could not say enough about this bach and our stay here. My family is excited to come back so we can stay at Matheson Bay Vista again. Thank you Ad for your hospitality!

We loved this place so much we are almost reluctant to share the good news! Very well-located; just a few minutes walk to the beach and ten minutes drive to Goat Island, Omaha and Matakana; lovely view of the sea from the front and sunny sheltered back deck to catch the afternoon; clean, well-equipped and more spacious than it appears in the photos. Thanks very much.

If you are looking for a lovely and relaxing place to stay, this place has it all. As soon as you walk through the door you feel a sense of peace and a light happy energy. Very comfortable with everything that you need - even the firewood is neatly stacked!!! The decor is of a very high standard and adds to a 'holiday feel'. Wonderful view.

Many thanks for the time and effort you have made, to make your bach a great holiday home.

Close to the perfect bach, with large, covered decks front and back for outdoor eating any time of the day, spacious living spaces and well-equipped kitchen. Stunning views and easy walk to one of Auckland's best, bush-fringed swimming beaches. We made good use of the 2 kayaks, snorkelling gear -- and the pool table. Another big plus was the proximity to the city (one and a half hours by car) for visits to/by friends and family. John and Tessa.

Thanks for sharing your lovely house with us. You have a great house with a relaxed welcoming atmosphere in a top location in the beachside community of Matheson Bay. The wonderful views over the bay from dining, lounge and main bedroom was enjoyed emensely, alongside the private very sunny back veranda and garden. A lot of little extras made us feel most welcome, and we really enjoyed the pleasant decor' which has been done to a high standard. I highly recommend this house, and we will be back to stay. Such a great base for all the activities that can be enjoyed in this region.

The photographs do not do this property justice! This property has been skillfully and imaginatively modernised internally to provide very comfortable holiday accommodation for 4 or more. It is possible to separate the accommodation into two areas with their own lounge, TV and bedroom which makes it well suited to parents with teenage children. Externally you have the choice of sitting on the front deck enjoying the sea view, or sitting on the rear deck enjoying the privacy of the very attractive garden. And for those that don't know the area, the house is a pleasant walk to the sheltered beach of Matheson Bay; a short drive to plenty of other worthwhile entertainments such as the marine reserve, the fishing harbour, and the Matakana wine district; while the beaches of Pakiri, Omaha and the Tawharanui Peninsular are only a little further to travel - and well worth it.
