Hi Eddie, I have tried unsuccessfully to express any feedback through book-a-bach but feel I must let you know what a simply fantastic holiday we had at Mataheres. No traffic noise yet close enough for us to walk to the beach twice a day, visit the Muri market and attend our family wedding at Pacific Resort. Mataheres was ideal and provided a very safe environment for the children, the 20month old was easily contained on the front balcony. The caretaker was most helpful and kept us well suppled with bananas. Already recommending this beautiful house to my friends and workmates.

Forget the resorts, this place rocks, thank you soooo much, Val

Kia orana Eddie.

I am sending you a message to thank you sincerely for the support you gave us in our time staying at Upper Matahere'e Residence in Rarotonga. We had a fantastic time and the accommodation was crucial to that. The weather was poor but at no time were we stopped from doing what we wanted to do on our trip so that did not matter. We will certainly be recommending Matahere's Residence to any of our friends who are contemplating going over there for a family holiday in the future and will more than likely visit there again sometime in the future. Once again Eddie, thank you so much for your support and for us being able to stay at this awesome family accommodation.

Meitaki!, Kia ora ano , Ross and whanau.

Good morning Eddie

We just wanted to say a big thank you for all you did for us in organising our stay at Matahere's. We had a wonderful holiday and the accommodation was superb! Dave caught a striped Marlin which was definitely the highlight of the holiday for him. We all thought the Te Vara Nui village tour, dinner & show was spectacular and definitely the highlight of our trip. We also did some quad biking on our last full day which also happened to be the day we had the torrential rain! This did not dampen our spirits even if it dampened our clothes and in fact made the experience even more fun and the young man who took us, Api (sorry not sure of spelling) was great too. Every meal we had was great and we especially enjoyed the local food market at Muri. We will definitely be recommending both Rarotonga and Matahere's as a holiday destination to all our family and friends and we hope to come back again too.

Kind Regards from us all... Maureen
