Dear Mark and Angelique, Thank you for an amazing weekend at Tiki Tiki Ora - Absolutely loved the place. Big room with an en-suite and beautiful views. Could have sat on the deck overlooking Bay of Islands for the entire weekend without moving. Loved the ambiance, the beautiful artifacts and more so the stories that were behind them. Thank you...

After seeing hundreds of brilliant reviews for Tiki Tiki Ora it was literally the only place we wanted to stay at while visiting Russell. Our whole trip was planned around their availability and I am thrilled that they were able to accommodate our preferred dates. The hosts, Ang & Mark are such humble, down to earth people with some incredible... More

An absolutely amazing experience, I have yet to experience a B&B up to this standard. Not only was the hospitality far beyond my expectations but the decor, and details were thoughtfully placed out each with a story to tell from both Mark & Ange. It's a shame that me and Adam couldn't stay longer we would've loved to stay to... More

Having visited a couple of years ago I had no hesitation booking into Tiki Tiki Ora again for my wifes big 50th celebration/treat and I was not disappointed. The only thing that has changed is a new extension to the property in the shape of a charming roofed, open air sitting area next to the house but just far enough... More

Honestly this B&B exceeded our expectations like you wouldn't believe! Mark and Angelique were just wonderful hosts! From as soon as we walked in until we left we was greeted with open arms and offered coffee, wine, biscuits and plenty of smiles. The house itself had a calming and spiritual ora as soon as you walk in. The room was... More

After a year since our last visit, we decided to go up north to Russel. There was no question where to stay for the long weekend. Once again Mark and Angelique welcomed us very warmly. Since our last stay at Tiki Tiki Ora we got married, and Mark and Angelique made all the effort to make this long weekend feel... More

Recently stayed at Tiki Tiki Ora for a long weekend. We were made to feel very welcome by the wonderful hosts Mark & Angelique. Loved sitting on the deck drinking wine watching the beautiful sunset. Would highly recommend as a very relaxing break in a great setting, feeling at home and pampered through out. Just bliss.

We had such a lovely time the last time we stayed here that my husband organised to visit again when we were visiting family in NZ for my 50th birthday. It is such an amazing part of the world and once again we were blessed with fabulous days, there was a new addition to the property which is a gazebo... More
