                                          Amazing holiday

                                          5 of 5
                                          My family and I had the perfect holiday at Villa Matariki. The location is ideal as private , tranquil with amazing views . The house has everything we needed and was very relaxing. Our hosts were fantastic and most welcoming. I would highly recommend this villa and hope to return again.

                                          Spectacular house for relaxing!

                                          This house will not disappoint in any way.It is simply beautiful and has absolutely everything you need for a relaxing break. The owners are really helpful and friendly and we were greeted with an array of cool drinks snacks and bread on our arrival which was a lovely touch.The house is fully air conditioned and is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. This house is clearly well loved and maintained to a really high standard. The views from the Villa are second to none and we witnessed some spectacular sunsets. The pool and outside space is gorgeous with a shaded area with comfy seating area to keep cooler in the very hot sunshine. As the property is high in the hills and surrounded by trees and greenery- there are a lot of insects and bugs around-so lots of repellant is required!! There are some spectacular butterflies around too. A car is really essential for this property so that you can explore the area and dine out. We had such a lovely holiday and would return in a heartbeat and am sure that you would not find a nicer property anywhere.

                                          We had a great stay in villa Marina. The property is very well equipped and we really enjoyed the two different outside eating areas and using the BBQ. The pool is great and the basement rooms (with a gym, table tennis and separate kitchen) were useful for when some people wanted to stay up late and others wanted an early night. The beds were comfy too. Marco and Damir were really helpful and easy to get in contact with. Would recommend!
