My hosts offered me a free pick up at the airport and from that moment I was treated more as a friend than a guest. Their very attractive homestay is a sensitively extended traditional building standing within extensive grounds of restored New Zealand Bush. Bedrooms, lounge and dining area are comfortable and offer great views of Bellbirds and Tuis attracted... More

Jenny and Ian were gracious and generous hosts to me and my husband for our one night stay at their gorgeous house on our recent NZ vacation. Although we stayed just one night, we were treated as friends by our wonderful hosts. The home and our room were lovely. Breakfast was quite nice and with a view of the backyard... More

This place has it all, great B&B accommodation, friendly hosts who still enjoy what they do. The best is, for serious birders wanting to see the elusive fern bird, it is an easy board walk through the wetlands. Jenny has locating them down pat, forget the normal rules of birding, talk, make noise with your feet and whistle and take... More

Ian and Jenny are wonderful, friendly hosts. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and for our stay to be enjoyable. Our room was lovely, very comfortable and clean. It was lovely to wake up to bird calls and hear no traffic noise whatsoever. What was exceptional is the effort Ian and Jenny have put... More

Staying with Jenny and Ian at Bushy Point Fernbirds B&B was like going to stay with friends. We had a fabulous time there, and couldn't fault the hosts. The bed was absolutely divine and the location intensely quiet. Had the best nights sleep ever, and we found it difficult to drag ourselves out of the bed in the morning it... More

We had the pleasure to stay for (only) two days at the Bushy Point B&B over new years eve 2012. It was a perfect stay, one of the best we had during our trip, despite the rather bad weather, something like visiting old friends who go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Starting from the generous bedrooms... More
