We are close to Matamata Town Centre - we have the benefit of living rurally yet only a couple of minutes drive from town. We are conveniently located on a main road so we are easy to find. You’ll love my place because of the location, the rural surroundings and gorgeous view of the Kaimai Ranges. You also have everything you need whether it be for a short or longer term stay. Our place is good for couples, business travellers, and families (with children).

Rose's place is a treasure. It is in a quiet rural type location only 1km from Matamata. We stayed for a visit to Hobbiton which is only a 15 minute drive away. The accommodation was excellent, everything you need is to hand and Rose was happy to provide tips and advice when requested. I would thoroughly recommend a stay at The Old Java Lodgings, 10 out of 10.

Just off from Matamata, Rosana’s place is a perfect and comfy lodge with great rolling hill views and a cute playful dog.

A great little space in a rural setting but still very close to Matamata. Rose and family were wonderful hosts and made everything easy - including fresh asparagus! Will come back. Thyson

Had a fantastic stay at Rosana's. The house had a beautiful view of the farm and mountains. The beds were super comfy - including the fold outs! It was less than 5 minute drive from central Matamata. Thank-you heaps for an awesome stay

Come and check out the place for yourself, because it offers so much more than what you can read and see on Airbnb. My parents, me and my dog enjoyed our stay in Matamata so much. We would definitely recommend the place to all and come back for ourselves. Really new, comfy, cozy, clean, modern house. Equipped with all quality and convenient goodies. Lovely farm so big that is perfect for walk in the morning and sunset. Though set on rural but if you have car it is only 2mins drive from town. Friendly host and dog, so handy to give you help when needed. It has really good value compared to the standard motels. Wonderful Old Java Lodge!
