We stayed for 1 night at Matakana Castle and thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing pampering break. Hosts Natalie and John super friendly and go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. Great room with fantastic view out over the water. Complimentary h'or dourves and a glass of wine were waiting for us in the guest lounge after an afternoon siesta. And the fabulous breakfast the following morning was just superb.
Matakana is a stunning area with so much to do, see & taste. We spent a day at Tawharanui on the beach, got to be the best beach in NZ! Lunch at Ransom Wines which is just before Warkworth if travelling North. Dinner at Matakana Market Kitchen. And the following day a walk around Brick Bay Sculpture Trail. Highly recommend all of these places.
Thanks again Natalie and John for a fabulous weekend!!
