Anyone touring the East Cape is likely to be looking for somewhere a bit off the beaten track and the accommodation blends in nicely with this concept. The quiet approach road is just over 9km from the State Highway and although sealed most of the route it’s fairly narrow (a squeeze for two cars passing) and unsealed for the final... More

Wonderful stay at Judy's Beachstay. Such a beautiful place. We booked the cottage for one week and at the end it was hard to drive away. Judy made us so welcome from the first hello. Afternoon tea, lovely muffins made by Lena, a german wwoofer girl, under the strict eye of Judy. Aperitif on the veranda, wonderful dinner with products... More

Judy had a cancellation and we were lucky enough to stay one night - wished it could have been longer. We stayed in her home and had a wonderful evening sipping wine and chatting. Judy welcomed us like long lost friends and immediately made us feel at home. To go to sleep with the sound of the waves on the... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Rangimarie, and this time, with two kids under 7. Anaura Bay beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on earth, and the accommodation is built to make the most of the stunning views. Judy looked after us brilliantly, and was wonderfully patient with the girls. It is, without doubt, our... More

A stay with Judy Newell should be on everyone's bucket list. A far far cry from the madding crowd. A place of spectacular beauty but also a place of peace, warmth, love and friendship coupled with delicious food and stimulating conversation. Her home and the effortless way she provides these comforts for her guests not only gives restorative powers to... More

Rangimarie beachstay and Judy Newell have all the ingredients for the perfect NZ holiday. We had the charming... More

I am going to join everyone else by praising this hidden gem. This was easily the best accommodation my family and I have ever had in New Zealand. This spacious B&B is located on sunny Anaura Bay, 70km north of Gisborne. Our room (upstairs) had one of the best views anyone can possibly imagine. The food at breakfast and dinner... More

And Judy shares her paradise with her guests. Thank you so much. We had delicious breakfast and dinner. But most of all we loved the two sunrises watching from our bedroom. Rangimarie is one of the most beautiful accommodations we ever had in NZ. We loved it.

My partner and I stayed at Rangimarie Beachstay as part of our trip along the East Cape. What a find! Beautiful location with views across Anaura Bay and not a soul in sight. If you are looking for relative luxury in a location far away from main roads, shops and hustle-bussle, this is the place to be. The accommodation is... More

I can only echo the other reviews here: beautiful location on a spectacular bay, lovely accommodations with sweeping balcony views, excellent cooking (and do plan to eat there - getting to a restaurant and back would be taxing given the isolated location). Your hostess is helpful and accommodating. We were lucky enough to be able to extend our stay because... More
