We stayed at Ocean Lookout for two nights in December 2014 with our two young children. It's cosy, comfortable and welcoming and the views upstairs are stunning. Breakfast was fantastic with home-baked bread! Graham & Viv are so friendly and helpful and also made our young kids feel relaxed and welcome too. A great place to stay in Piha.

This was a fantastic place to stay. We stayed one night but it felt like 3! It was so relaxing and Viv and Graham were fantastic hosts. The breakfast was yummy and looking out over to Piha was the best way to start the morning. The rooms are very private, amazingly clean and the linen on the bed to die... More

A great place to stay! Graham and Viv made us feel like family - thank you! This place is clean and very well equipped with complimentary coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Breakfast was great! Graham and Viv have great stories and know the area very well. You will not be disappointed! Stay here!

We stayed two nights and indeed enjoyed the stunning view from the balkony onto the ocean. We were the only guests so that we had the whole ground floor for us, with a little lounge with complimentary tea, chocolate and coffee. We had our breakfast served upstairs looking at the ocean: plenty of fruit, freely baked toasts and home made... More

We stayed at the Piha Ocean Lookout whilst tramping the Hillary Trail and found Graham and Viv to be amazing hosts with a wealth of local knowledge. The accommodation was beautifully presented and very comfortable. We were hot and tired when we arrived but were soon refreshed by the foot spa, long cold drink and shower. Graham not only drove...

Our extended family had a great last night of our holiday in Piha. Excellent BB with super welcoming hosts, amazing views and walks around the corner. You made us feel at home and gave continental brekkie a new meaning. Thank you, hope to come back after we do the Hillary trail!

We stayed at Piha Ocean Lookout for 2 nights between Christmas and New year. Our hosts, Graham and Viv, had the balance just right.....very hospitable, friendly and helpful but never intrusive....so, although you are essentially living on the bottom level of their home, as you have your own entrance, bathroom and small lounge, it is really very private......and spotlessly clean!...

There are not a lot of overnight options in Piha, so I was really happy to have found this one. First of all, the owners make a huge difference here. You are essentially staying downstairs in their home, but they are polite and considerate. If you want space, they will give it to you. If you want to chat, they... More

Having never visited Auckland we decided to book one night on our way back from Masterton to the UK. A friend recommended one or two places that were not more than an hour from the Airport and we plumped for Piha beach. The drive is interesting with the chance to stop off at the interpretation centre and places to eat... More
