Aka Ali and Greg, who were magnificent hosts, with all the local knowledge imparted ,from places to eat, walk ,sightsee and much, much more. Couldn't face the surf at my age, but had great early morning swims at Anzac Bay, just 5 mins away. Ali's home made treats were exquisite and strangely calorie free !

Mid January 2015, we stayed 2 nights with this wonderful couple, who not only were utmost guestfriendly and gave us superbreakfast, but also gave us a lot of knowledge about living in NZ during our discussions on the terrace. Their rooms were nice, the beach was "two steps away" and the surroundings wonderful. We recommend all our Swedish friends who... More

We stayed just two nights with Greg and Ali..We can not speak highly enough of the accommodation and of our two hosts.We received a very warm welcome and a very comprehensive breakdown of the activities we could do in the area during our stray. Our room was on the ground floor facing the road which I thought may be a... More

Ali & Greg helped to make our honeymoon in New Zealand very special. The accommodation is very comfortable, the beach is right on the doorstep, bikes & body boards were made available, breakfast was "awesome" (including Ali's muffins).

Our room was clean and comfortable and we even had a view of the beach. Hosts Greg and Ali could not have been more friendly... More

The rooms of this near-beach bed and breakfast are a throwback to the 1950s in style. However, the two rooms my family occupied were spotless, the beds comfortable and the showers were new and spotless. Both of the rooms we occupied included very small kitchenettes with morning coffee available in the rooms. The Lodge is a short block from a... More

Ali and Greg, what can we say, the lovely'st people ever. Ali took care of our laundry, she even sawed two of our blouses that were thorn, at no extra cost. Very casual and relaxed stay. At this stay we decided that the land of milk and honey is not west, but east, in New Zealand, at Waihi beach in... More

Greg and Ali were great hosts. We loved Waihi Beach, the village was lovely and we walked from the lodge into the village each evening for our meals. We borrowed Greg and Ali's bikes to cycle to Anzac Bay, enjoyed a wonderful couple of hours on Orokawa Bay completely on our own and bathed in the hot springs at Athenree.... More
