Stayed January 2021

Worth renting though cooking utensils (poor). Items in general at home (poor). Location great inside Matapouri park however note back rooms back the main road and you can hear cars at night and early morning. Property is a solid 4 out of 5.

Stayed December 2020

A great spacious and well-equipped house within the gated community. 5-7 minutes walk to the beach through beautiful pathways. An excellent outdoor area that is getting plenty of sun. Heaps of space for kids to play on the front yard or outside on the huge grass patch. Plenty of kitchenware for two families - 2 fridges, 2 dishwashers, 2 cooktops/ovens, etc. Comfortable beds. The only small inconvenience was the dishwashers struggling to clean dishes properly, despite us following all the instructions. Also, WiFi could have been handy. Other than that, we have enjoyed our stay at the Earth Castle and would certainly be back!

Great house for large family with the beach a quick walk away.

Stayed December 2019

The overall experience was brilliant, plenty of space for 9 guests and the place is well serviced/furnished with all required amenities. The location is amazing, walking distance to Matapouri beach and Whale Bay. Short drive (5mins) to a brilliant surf beach - Sandy Bay. During our stay, we realised half of the house did not have hot water which restricted shower use across the 9 guests to one working shower (normally 3 showers available).
