Clear View is one of the best bed-and-breakfasts I have ever stayed at. The property is immaculately clean, quiet and beautifully landscaped with a killer view of Matakatia Beach and (at night) the sparkling lights of Auckland across the harbor. The location is great if you have a car, close to shops and a wide variety of restaurants. Hosts Shelly... More

Very steep drive to this B&B!, but enough off street parking for guests. Thought the deal was good value for money but you will need a car to go anywhere. Ate at the local Marina which was good and at a noisy JAC' s Bar ( pizza was v good).

Whangaparaoa Peninsula [Māori for "Bay of Whales"] is a hidden gem just 25 KMS north of Auckland NZ’s largest city.

It is a lovely place with stunning views from the deck over the bay. The rooms are clean, very comfortable and very beautyful. The Breakfast is perfect. Shelley is a amazing host and you don't want to leave at the end of your stay. Thank you, I would return in a heartbeat and recommend Clear View without hesitation.

Our stay in NZ was made by Shelly and her amazing house with views to die for. She could not have done anything more to make us feel welcome. Her home cooked scones are an afternoon treat well worth coming back from your daily trip around this tranquil peninsular. This B&B is one of New Zealand's well kept secrets. She... More
