We usually prefer self-catering but this B&B was perfectly placed for our trip to Tiritiri Matangi from Gulf Harbour. As others have said, the welcome basket is fabulous and Carolyn dishes up an excellent breakfast. The property is well placed for restaurants and take-aways over the road and despite being close to the road is very quiet. Our room was... More

Our hosts at this modern B&B were charming and helpful and everything you could need or want was provided. A welcome basket with a bottle of wine, biscuits, crackers, Brie, and nuts for each room, and sherry and chocolate in the evening. Leave your car as there are a few bars, and 4 or 5 restaurants within walking distance. We... More

Great location. Beautiful room. Friendly owners - happy to assist in anyway. Great hamper of NZ wine and nuts / cheese / biscuits and chips. Only problem was we only booked for one night - would love to have stayed a week!

Carolyn met us on a wet, windy and dark Saturday evening with a bottle of wine, crisps, biscuits which was most welcome. We had, I think, the smallest room which was part of our 'package' which was 2 nights B and B and two of us on the ferry and guided tour of Tiri Tiri Matangi all for $388 NZ... More

Booked a B and B for the first time and definitely made the best choice with Bayview Manly. We were met on arrival by Carolyn and given a fabulous welcome basket including a bottle of wine. My son is 6'7" and we had booked a room with foldout bed but due to his height Carolyn and Arnold gave him a... More

We stayed here for a night in January 2015, because we wanted somewhere close to Gulf Harbour, from where we were to take a boat across to Tiritiri Matangi island the following morning. We arrived quite late, but this wasn't a problem for our host, Carolyn, who checked us in and made us feel really at home, with a complimentary... More

Lovely room, amazing choice of food for breakfast including fresh fruit and a choice of cooked dishes. The friendliest of hosts. Carolyn could not have done any more to look after us. Next time will choose Room 1 which is larger and has views towards the sea.

Everything you could ask for in a B&B and more - wonderful room with great views, extremely helpful and knowledgeable host and special extras (goody basket and wine on arrival, port and chocolates after dinner). An extensive breakfast menu is on offer - can thoroughly recommend the pancakes with fresh fruit. The choices for dinner at the nearby shopping centre... More
