Wonderful in all matters! Warm welcome, the hospitality, the room, the beds, the breakfast, the surrondings. A perfect B&B stay if you are in the neithborhood of Geraldine. We for sure will recommend this to travellers in NZ. And Margreth, you just love her and she loves her guests.

The house is located on the top of the peninsula overlooking the town, and is surrounded by a beautiful garden full of flowers. The owner Margaret met us and immediately made us feel very welcome, supplying tea and cakes immediately we... More

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay in Bayview Homestay. Clean, comfortable and warm B&B. Thanks for Margaret to prepare a fantastic breakfast and share her life story. We won't forget the smile on Nicky's face.
