Very late review as my partner and I stayed here in September 2011. The room was beautiful and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and made us a lovely breakfast. Very relaxing and quiet location.

The setting and house is lovely, the hosts are very welcoming and make the stay very comfortable. They offer good advice on the local area. There are good places to eat and drink in Matakana village, but you do need a car to get there. The only things that did not give this full marks are the following; no en-suite... More

We had the pleasure of spending 2 luxurious nights at Ambiente and were very impressed with the 5 star accommodation, the delicious gourmet breakfast, and the hospitality of Ron & Patricia. The big beautiful deck with the fantastic view of the countryside was therapeutic in the quiet of the evenings. The one bedroom apartment type unit was very modern, well... More
