Nestled in between the surrounding native bush and basking in the sun - welcome to Double Tuna!

Modern and cosy, this 4-bedroom holiday home is the perfect spot for a family getaway.

Featuring all the amenities, you need to enjoy your time away, spark up the BBQ to cook up a classic grill for the family and eat alfresco around the outdoor dining area.

Lovely house and area, great location for walking to the beach and lots of other local walks - including to Whale Bay. We really enjoyed our stay.

Matapouri is a wonderful destination.. it's absolutely beautiful. The house is very central. Although the house is very modern it is very cheaply built and furnished. The showers flood the entire bathroom floors so you will need plenty of towels to clean up after each shower.

We appreciate your feedback and are glad to hear you enjoyed Matapouri. The owner has advised that the house was built to exacting standards, well exceeding the requirements. The property has granite kitchen tops and is equipped with high quality appliances such as the likes of Smeg. The bathroom is a "wet" bathroom which means it has been designed and finished so that all surfaces can be wet, allowing for more usable space.

We loved the location. Hone was large and clean. But there were some issues. Secondary bedrooms are smallish with no air con, and we're unbearable in the heat. Water ran out, tank ran dry. We found out how to connect a new tank the next day, but it was an inconvenience, and water smelt off. Showers flooded the bathrooms and dishwasher was broken. For what we paid we expected better.

Thank you for your feedback David. There are fans in the smaller bedrooms as the rooms are too small to install an air conditioning unit however there is air conditioning in the master and living area. Unfortunately, all of Northland is on tank water so it is just one of the quirks of holidaying in the area. The bathroom is a "wet" bathroom which means it has been designed and finished so that all surfaces can be wet, allowing for more usable space and we can confirm that there is no flooding. The dishwasher has since been repaired and we hope you are happy with the compensation provided for the inconvenience.
