Fodor's Review

Matahua's two self-contained cottages on the shoreline of the Waimea Estuary began life as apple pickers' cottages and have been refurbished in a pleasing rustic style. Separated by high plantings for privacy, each has a full kitchen, ample decks, and a wood fire, and a breakfast hamper is available. Karaka has an outdoor bath on a private deck overlooking the estuary. The property represents excellent value for its stunning location, where you can wander the foreshore

and do some bird-watching, if you wish. Or take a walk over the 5-acre organic farm and vineyard. A studio or third bedroom is available with the Karaka cottage.
