Glenys and David are so welcoming. We had the Aquarius room, everything was just perfect and the view was amazing, looks just like the picture on their website. Breakfast was their signature - just superb! Recommend to anybody (both local and travelers), this is the perfect spot to stop over in Auckland or simply just a lovely weekend away.

We spent one night at Verdelais - unfortunately only one... The Verdelais is a relaxing and fabulous place, Glenys and David are great hosts, lovely people and they're very hospitable. Everything was perfect: the room, the view, the bar, the chats ;) We got a delicious and sumptuous breakfast on the balcony with ocean view. The beaches are just around... More

Glenys & David were wonderfully hospitable, given that we arrived late on Christmas Day, just as they were about to sit down to Christmas dinner with family & friends. Totally unfazed, they invited us... More

We needed a chill out 5 days which is exactly what we achieved. Glenys and David could not have been more hospitable making us feel relaxed and truly at... More

From cooking us a fabulous breakfast to hosting... More

Here is a place to stay that you shall never forget! The Verdelais Bed and Breakfast hosted by Glenys and David Ferguson is truly amazing. The place is faboulous, a quiet luxurious place, treating yourself and your soul to a great getaway. Enjoying nature, the beaches around and great breakfasts, good food and perfect setting overlooking the ocean with two... More
