If you’d think about New Zealand, Matakana might not come to mind but this place is a treasure waiting to be discovered - the area has vineyards aplenty if you are thinking of going on a wine discovery and besides that, every drive down the roads of New Zealand presents you breathtaking views of this city. These apartments that are in Matakana are all nestled in areas that are tranquil and healing for the city dwellers in us, and once in a while we all yearn for that retreat where we bask in the warmth of the sunlight at the lawn of these apartments and when the weather gets chilly, host a barbeque party outside. Here is a list of the top Bookabach holiday homes in Matakana.
With Campbel’s beach that is 10-minutes away, it makes it a comfortable walk to the beach with pristine blue waters where you can spend an afternoon there, listening to the waves of the sea. This cottage provides a gas barbeque pit on the deck of the house and not far from the pit is the dining area which is surrounded by lush greenery. It is a perfect setting for a getaway from the city. The location of the cottage house is ideal as it’s near to many local attractions such as the Brick Bay sculpture trail, Tawharanui and to the farmers’ market as well.

This space is a comfortable accommodation for two people and since this place is found at the end of a typical New Zealand rural gravel road, the drive would guarantee you a sneak peek of the scenic views New Zealand has to offer. What’s amazing is that the scenic view never ends at this accommodation, when you step out you will be greeted with a vast view of the waters and greenery from afar, it spells peace and tranquillity and these two qualities are worth making the trip down to this home for your holiday.

For a larger group of travellers, this apartment has all that you need for a larger group. The lawn is a good place for a good catch up with relatives or friends you haven’t met in some time, or all the better if you could have a picnic with your larger group. This accommodation fits 12 and has a few bedrooms to be shared. They have a pool table provided which is a good area for the young adults to have a game or two while the older ones could sip some wine at the sofas outside. There are swings as well, which makes a great morning or evening stroll an ideal one with the smaller ones around.

With a cottage house like this, it’s hard to not imagine having the whole cottage house lit up with candles, warm blankets to tug you in for an in-house movie night, this place is associated with all things cozy. It is said to be near the village of Matakana as well thus it is not difficult to get here, and you won’t have to hire a car. If you’re in the vicinity of Matakana, drop by their very own vineyards and don’t get too tipsy before the day ends.
2 minutes walk to the village heart.

With the minimalistic style of the interiors, the ambiance of this cottage is simple yet elegant. The walls of the bedrooms are in the color scheme that complements the theme of the house and makes the whole stay an invigorating one. It is only a comfortable walk to art galleries and the Matakana coast where plenty of seafood is in store for you. There is also a communal barbeque pit that is shared amongst the three cottages that are provided by the host. While this is a comfortable space for three, this area is ideal for a planned extended family vacation where families could occupy other cottages as well.
