Matata Palms - a modern apartment - part of the Pacific Highway. Only 20 Minutes to Whakatane and White Island Tours, 35 minutes to Tauranga & 50 minutes to Rotorua. A place to do some fishing, go to the beach or sit on your own private deck looking out at the sea. If you are a Tourist, Traveller or just needing a few days away, come and stay. We live on a busy corner in Matata so there is road noise, we also have logging trains come through behind our property, which can be very exciting.
