Wow. We came for the lovely accommodation, as many do, and we were not disappointed, it exceeded expectations. What made the difference was Angelique and Mark - they are truly awesome hosts who certainly went the extra mile, thank you very much for your generosity of spirit on our special occasion :) :) :)

We loved Tiki Tiki Ora! Russell in the Bay of Islands was my husband's favorite place-peaceful and friendly. TTO is only a short 10 minutes drive from Russell and has everything you would want to unwind after a full day of touring. The house is gorgeous & has been maintained meticulously. They have fascinating art & memoriabillia at every turn.... More

AND IT WAS NOT A NEW STORY BUT OUR STORY, outstanding. No words can tell you the smiles, the sweetness, the beauty of... More

Our first stay at the Tiki Tiki Ora was in April 2013 on a spur of the moment decision to travel north from Auckland sooner than anticipated. We took the scenic eastern route which is not for faint hearted drivers and enjoyed the wonderful views and blind curves. Mark and Angelique welcomed us upon our arrival after a harrowing trip...

Our stay here was truly memorable from the time we arrived to the time we reluctantly had to leave. Our hosts made us so welcome that we felt free to wander at will and really enjoy the property. The views from the decks are outstanding and tranquil but we found little time to enjoy them as our hosts indulged our... More

An all-round five-star experience: spectacular property; spotless rooms; sparkling hosts! The B & B is perched high on a hillside with panoramic views over the Bay of Islands. It is a remarkable location a few minutes' drive from Russell; peaceful and quiet, beautifully landscaped, and surrounded by native bush. On arrival, Angelique and Mark rolled out the red carpet to... More

I was visiting a friend in Auckland and we had time for a trip to The Bay of Islands. We stayed at TikiTikiOra and, boy oh boy, I was blown completely away by our hosts Angelique and Mark and their stunning house just outside Russell. What a wonderful/luxurious house it is and nothing whatsoever, was too much trouble for our... More

We stayed at the Tiki Tiki Ora for a couple of unforgettable days. Mark and Angelique are very hospitable and friendly. The location is absolutely beautiful, with a scenic view from almost any point around the house. It's so peaceful there. You can hear the kiwis and the wekas at night (and some other birds during the day), and on... More
