Three couples came from Melbourne to spend time with some good friends who lived near by. What luck we found Moontide Lodge. The rooms were very comfortable with the most wonderful view from each one. Breakfasts were fresh and healthy. Neil and Makiko were great hosts who could not do enough for us. They are also experts in the area... More

From the moment we arrived at Moontide Lodge we were made to feel welcome by Makiko and Neil. We were given complimentary tea and cookies on the balcony overlooking the beach which was so relaxing after our journey. Our room was not only very comfortable but had the most magnificent view over the bay - so beautiful, in fact, that... More

My husband and I voted this B&B our favorite place that we stayed on our 12-day trip to New Zealand. The view is spectacular. Our hosts were very accommodating. We enjoyed visiting with them. And they got up very early in the morning to fix our breakfast and get us on our way back to Aukland to catch our train!

A very friendly b&b with a great view, lovely rooms and with love chosen interiour for a good price! The host neil gave us a good insight about the things to do around orewa and on the north coast. Arrive, take a beer and sit on deck, you are chilled in minutes!

We had an overnight stop in Owera and stayed here - it was absolutely lovely. Neil was a very friendly and informative host and our room had a beautiful large bathroom and sun room. The bed was extremely comfortable. We also had use of the lounge where there were beautiful views over the Hauraki Golf. The drive to town was... More

Could have been great. Late check in at 4pm lousy.Told on arrival "no drinking or eating in room". Rooms clean but deck off living space was dirty and mouldy. No fridge, no TV. Breakfast too basic. Orewa great but a few minutes drive away. Hosts helpful and pleasant. Tariff too high for what we got.

We had a lovely stay in this B&B. We had the room with the private balcony and a nice sun room just off the bedroom. The room was spacious and the views were lovely. The views are even better in the dining area and sitting room. Neil invited us to put any perishables into the refrigerator and provided lots of... More

The previous reviewers are spot on - this is a B& B like no other. For a European, as I am, used to small, often unremarkable accommodation, this property takes you to a whole new level of experience. With majestic views over Hatfields beach and across the bay to the Whangaparaoa peninsula from its exclusive clifftop position, the size and... More
