Web site looks lovely. however, be warned that you may be placed in the next door property (also owned by the family) without any discussion or warning. We were placed next door which was not what we had booked. Our double room was quite claustrophobic with only a narrow space at the bedside and at base of bed. The external... More

Enjoyable stay both quiet and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and informative regarding the options for our travel plans. We had a tour booked and the hosts allowed us to leave our car on the premisses with the tour piking up and dropping off at the gate. We would chose to stay here again in the future.

My husband and I stayed here for a night. Great service. Really nice area. Owners were really really friendly and the breakfast was ABSOLUTELY amazing! I want to learn how to scramble eggs like that! And fried eggs was perfect. This place made us very happy! Everything was just perfect. We would definitely stay at waters edge b&b again!

Trying to avoid long driving days in Northland, we looked for accommodation close to Cape Reinga. Kaitaia seemed to be the closest choice. This place caught our eye and arriving after a day of exploring, we drove through a quiet residential neighbourhood to arrive in a secluded yard surrounded by greenery. Our host Alistair soon appeared and conducted us to... More

There is not a great deal to Kaitaia, but if you are going to visit the Ninety Mile beach on the North Island - and it really is a must see, then is is a great b and b to base yourself. The owners are lovely and so is the property. Although it is a b and b, each of... More

Rooms are in immaculate condition and well decorated, with lots of nice little touches. Exceptionally hospital hosts, very helpful and give plenty of privacy. Would stay there again and again and highly recommend.

This B&B is excellent. Unlike many of the motel/hotel accommodation in Kaitaia it is not on the main street. Just a very short distance from the town centre it is very quiet as well as being set on a nice size block of land. We planned to stay one night but enjoyed it so much we stayed two nights when...

You are up in the north to start your New Zealand journey? This is a great place to stay. The host is very friendly and the our room (half garden/half poolside) was really nice, clean and spacious. For guest comfort they provide a bit more than the usual toileteries. The sleep quality was excellent as is was located in a... More

The room was incredibly comfortable, very well cleaned (much better than the NZ standard), had a great TV and a good bathroom. The location was easy to find through Google Maps, although it is hidden a bit at the end of a street. The pool was huge and very-well maintained. Breakfast was cooked up to a very high standard to... More
