Matt is a good solid kiwi bloke, has also travelled to over 45 countries and actually met Sarah traveling overseas. After a chance meeting 4 years later in a Tauranga bar they ended up getting married and for years he was the banker and rubbish man of the business while holding a fulltime job in the farming industry. He quit his job to run the family business in 2014 and hasn’t looked back

 “I am a hunter and gatherer and love being in the outdoors with nature and gathering a feed for my family! I love a good yarn, rugby, having a cold beer with my mates and enjoy playing the guitar (and singing much to his wife’s horror!) He is the man to see if looking for work.

What makes Pacific coast lodge awesome?

When you stay at a backpackers you want a lifelong lasting memory. This comes from being around good people who have the same attitude as you. Our staff have all travelled the world and know what’s its like to be a backpacker and how they like to be treated when they are on the road!

My favourite activity in the Mount? 

Catching fish 10 minutes from shore and BBQing them for dinner! Having a cold beer at one of the great bars and listening to live music.

Top tip for making your stay awesome?

Grab a free surf board and hit the waves!
