It was a perfect ending of our New Zealand trip. We spent six days with Jeannie and Greg and they were amazing hosts. Great surroundings, comfortable room, perfect knowledge of the area. Every morning we received an amazing breakfast with fresh fruit and homemade bread. Jeannie baked some great cakes, she even prepared a lunchbox with cake and fresh cream.... More

We had left a great B&B in Waiheke and had just driven 3 hours to Clearwater Retreat. I had just had my best B&B stay in Waiheke and thought there was nothing else close to it.... I was wrong. Greg & Jeannie are just incredible, this was a top notch experience from the first moments we met them. Upon arrival-... More

This is in fact the best BB we ever visited: The hosts were very friendly and very helpful (we really felt like visiting some distant relatives). The room was very nicely furnished, with a terrace and a great view, overlooking the river. The breakfast was great, with homemade bread. We highly recommend a stay there!

During our holiday in NZ we stayed in 15 different places. Nowhere else we found a better combination between accomodation, hospitality and location. Jeannie and Greg are great hosts ! They think of every detail. If you need something, you can just ask them. As a first location, it couldn't have been better, and it never got any better! Over... More
