I cannot accurately describe the beauty of this place to you, You must experience it. The magic of the awa, its early morning mist sweeping amidst fall leaves, sunsets & sunrises like you've never seen before. The cabins are humble and cosy, the people warm and welcoming.

A beautiful building, full of charming retro and vintage finds, delicious food from a dedicated hostess and on-site cabins if you want to squirrel yourself away from a crazy world.

We visited Matahiwi Cafe and Gallery while riding Mountains to Sea Great Ride. It was the perfect place to stop for breakfast and pick up lunch to eat further down the road. Home made bacon and egg pie and blueberry muffin. Food was excellent and Cafe owners really friendly. Highly recommend
