Great place to stay
What a really lovely place to stay, well appointed suites, unbelievable views across the bay and right to Auckland (great view at night). Very quiet and private unit, lovely bottle of wine on arrival just waiting for us. They go out of the way to make you feel welcome, snacks, nibbles and breakfast food as well . There was even a car to use while we stayed there. Will definateky go back there.
We loved our stay so much; wish we could live here!
If you're looking for a B&B where you wake up in the morning and the host has breakfast waiting for you or you need someone to make your bed and fold your towels, this isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing, peaceful, and private get-away, this is what you want. My husband and I were on our two-week honeymoon, and made this our last stop. We stayed for 3 nights, and we're so happy to say that we saved the best for last! Waiheke Island in and of itself is stunning, and everything the two of us wish we could have back home, but staying at Matiatia Bay allowed us to thoroughly enjoy everything the island has to offer. The premises are conveniently located right by the ferry to Auckland. You don't even need to have a taxi take you there; my husband and I roughed it by dragging our heavy rollies up the dirt hill. Once there, there are only two guest suites, each of which has its own entrance, separate from the main house. We had the Pohutukawa Suite, which was clean, spacious, comfortable, and offered stunning views. Gary wasn't available to greet us, but there was a welcome note containing the key code to get in, and that worked just fine for us! Inside, there isn't a kitchen, but the mini-fridge was nicely stocked with everything we loved (it's like Gary knew us! Ham, cheese, pesto, parmesan crackers, muesli, yogurt, etc.), and there was a little cooker, which we used to cook up some freshly caught fish. My favorite part of the suite was the outside patio. It was perfect for enjoying a glass of wine overlooking Matiatia Bay, and it was so peaceful outside that I think I had some of my best sleep ever. We spent everyday doing some walking hikes (there's are nice trails that start and finish right at the driveway), hitting the beaches, and even a little fishing. It is absolutely key to have access to Gary's cars. They're old driving machines, but they are the best way to tour the island. We used the cars everyday, and they were great for getting to the grocery store or going out for lunch or dinner. We ended up meeting Gary while out in Onetangi. He's not the type of host who gets into your business, which my husband and I prefer, but he's friendly, generous, knowledgeable about the area, and he keeps Matiatia Bay in excellent shape. It would be our dream to return to Waiheke Island one day, and without a doubt, we'd choose Matiatia Bay again. Gary - thank you for the best stay! Warmest regards, Sal and Melissa …
