What a lovely spot. The outlook from Bach 2 was lovely across the vines then the river to the other side of the valley. The unit was lovely with everything you need. The design of the units is also very clever with a nice deck and bbq. Definitely a come again place.

You know when you have arrived with at the Riverside Matakana as the staff know implicitly that you are there because you need to be. A getaway, a Sna-caction as we called it, simply 24 hours of bliss. A quick raid of Nosh in the Matakana Markets and a quick stop at the locally wineries to ensure we had ample...

We spent a lovely weekend breathing the fresh country air and taking in the relaxing views at Riverside during recovery from a major injury. The Bach style accommodation is a real touch of Kiwi. The facilities and provisions are well thought out and placed on the site to give good levels of privacy. Comfortable beds and day furniture. Warm and...

The perfect place to get away from city life. Stayed here with a friend to celebrate a significant birthday. the units were really well equipped and designed to be private. We cooked up a storm and drank wine on the deck watching the sun set. So relaxing it was hard to leave.

We stayed here the night before Father's day with the kids. What a great place. Every unit is very private and secluded,. You wouldn't know that there was anyone else around. A night in the country side made the perfect end to a tough week. With a separate sleep out and plenty of room inside we had the ideal nights...

This is one of the best places we've been to for a weekend getaway. All the little things that normally bug you in holiday accommodation are not left to chance here. Heaps of space in the lodging, immaculate grounds and picturesque views await. Can't wait to come back.

We spent a long weekend at Riverside Matakana. A beautiful property situated amongst grape vines with stunning views. Very relaxing with all the home comforts and plenty of space for the kids to bike and run around with no roads nearby. The tennis court was popular with our family, and the pool would have been a a hit, but we...
