This place was a wonderful surprise. Big open windows onto the deck, a crashing surf, great location. The hosts, Kartini and Steve, did everything they could to make us feel at home and well-taken care of. Very nice people, wonderful place. We didn't want to leave!

Speaking as a retired Hospitality PR Manager who was responsible for 5 star Corporate Hospitality, I was seriously impressed with this B/B. My husband and I passed this B/B a couple of times and rejected it because we had intended staying in a hotel. However, we had some difficulty finding suitable availability, and as we only intended staying one night... More

Love coming here, devine view, fabulous healthy breakfast, peaceful, close to EVERYTHING, lovely hosts. CLEAN: (I stay in all sorts of hotels for business, and this place beats them all.) So much to do in Piahia, something for everyone, all ages. Love the market just along the road on a thursday. Get some people partying outside in the summer, but... More

We paid quite a lot of money for our stay and we were expecting a very modern room and facilities, well that wasn't the case! First of all we couldn't find the place because we had no idea it was above a liquor store. Our room was small and I was quite upset on arrival with having such high expectations... More

This B & B is beautifully appointed, has great views and is well located. Jillian was very friendly and helpful and we had a lovely time. Breakfast was a little light on but the setting made up for that. Our balcony was shared with one other guest room despite the web site advertising a private balcony.

I enjoyed 3 nights B&B at this place and was made to feel welcome the whole time. Breakfast was great and the people friendly. I would recommend this place especially the rooms with a balcony overlooking the sea.

Our stay here was mixed. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is good. The hosts were welcoming and friendly. The views over the sea were lovely, but the website doesn't show that the accommodation is above a liquor store very much at the backpacker end of town. The noise at night was really bad, and it made sense why... More

The view from our room was perfect, we could see right over the bay. We had a small balcony on which we could sit to read/drink before going off to eat in the evening. Our hosts were very friendly and attentive and made us very welcome. The room was very clean and nicely appointed.
