10/10 Exceptional

A most magnificent setting
The Matauwhi Bay Manor was the most magnificent vacation holiday place we have ever stayed in.The ground was stunning with gardens, trees, and “bush” surrounding this large Manor House. The views in three directions where of the beautiful Matauwhi Bay with picturesque boats anchored all the way around. The interior of the manor felt like we were staying in Downton Abbey. Our hosts Bruce and Diana were just as friendly and as accommodating as could be. Our freshly cooked breakfasts were a delight to behold and to eat. On a fishing trip we caught a 12 pound snapper and then Diana prepared it three ways, including sashimi. To say it was a delicious meal is to understate how good it was! We spent several hours on the private beach listening to the ripple of the waves and watching sailboats drift by. This is truly a travelers paradise. Look forward to coming back here.
