From the exquisite attention to detail in the room, to the magnificent view, to the sumptuous breakfasts and attentive service, Chalet Romantica is a delightful haven in the beautiful Bay of Islands. Inge and Eddy are wonderful hosts who made our stay memorable. And the view from the private deck in the top floor room -- you can't get any... More

We stayed for four nights in the Bellavista Room at Chalet Romantica. The room was very comfortable and beautifully furnished, with a lovely sitting area on the balcony with a breathtaking view over the Bay of Islands. Chalet Romantica is a few minutes walk from the town, with plenty of restaurants to chose from and an excellent one (Alfresco's) just... More

From the moment I drove up the beautiful circular driveway lined in meticulously pruned hedges, exotic flora and palms that surrounded the entire property, I knew I was exactly where I needed to be. This hilltop luxury chalet hosts one of the most breathtaking ocean views out onto the bay of islands and it's interior is filled with incredibly crafted... More

Inge is the perfect host and the chalet was lovely. We had the self contained top floor which was very comfortable. I have stayed in many top class hotels in the world but never felt so much at home and welcomed. If I picture the perfect host it is Inge who will be the benchmark

An inspired selection for our first visit to the Bay of Islands. A four night stay meant we could be flexible in our activities and Inge was a great help with suggestions and facilitating bookings. To rave about the breakfast room and the food would just be a repeat of all other reviews, it was just a beautiful start to... More

From the moment we stepped into Chalet Romantica, we felt at home and so well taken care of. Inge sorted out our rented car issue, booked our excursions, reserved our flight tickets back to Auckland, recommended good restaurants, offered to give us the bigger room with the kitchenette which had just become available and what else.
