We enjoyed two wonderful days in this lovely house on a hill with a gorgeous view to the ocean. Our room was very nice and the breakfast (hot and cold) was spectacular with lots of items to choose from. Carneval Ocean View should be kept as a secret as it is such a gem but if you travel to Mangonui... More

We spent 2 nights here on our moor cycle tour of North Island. Roly and Martha could not have been me generous hosts. Fantastic breakfast with lovely choices. Comfortable clean room. A real home from home.

This is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Martha and Roly have thought of everything and a lot more besides. Their welcome leaflet list 26 things they offer to guests. Cold water, fruit and chocolates in the room is nice, boules and snorkel equipment for the beach is exceptional, but never before have we been given... More

If you require a place to relax and read a good book, this is the place. Views are to die for. The hosts gave great tips on where to go around the local area and supplied the best breakfast you could ever want. Well done Rolly and Marther, we will be back again.

Terrific hosts, delicious food and well appointed accommodation with magnificent views - what more can you want! We spent four nights at Carnival over the Christmas break and when we asked for suggestions about where to go for Christmas lunch/dinner, Martha advised that most places in the area were closed but if we liked Roly would be happy to cook...

Prime location, very good and well-equipped room, modern and spotlessly clean bathroom, very nice reception by hosts and excellent breakfast. No doubt the best of the 7 B%B's and 4 motels we experienced in NZ

The rooms are beautifully fitted and comfortable. The B&B has a great location and we also very much appreciated the great support and advise in planning our excursions. We would definately... More

Wonderful hosts. Very warm but also extremely professional. There was nothing that we requested that wasn't provided with grace and charm. Breakfast was very generous and varied. The location was close to beaches and facilities but in a rural setting with a sweeping views of Doubtless Bay. Most importantly it was very quiet and relaxing.
