Our accommodations were immaculate, very comfortable and spacious! The view from our private patio was superb looking out onto the bay. The hosts were amazing with warm and gracious hospitality. A full cook-to-order breakfast was provided where you will not walk away hungry. This was our last night in New Zealand and were heading home to the US the next... More

I was walking Te Araroa trail and while passing this B&B decided on a whim to splurge and rest. And I was not disappointed by anything. The place is top notch bordering luxurious with absolutely stunning panoramic views of the bay. But the most amazing thing is the way owners took care of me. Rob took me in his car... More

My wife and I stayed here recently and wishes we could have stayed longer. The view is beautiful across the bay from our room and private deck which provided protection from the elements. The house is beautiful and our room well appointed. Our host were very helpful and did anything they could to make our stay enjoyable. Want to go... More

Josie and I needed a two night stay in Waipu, we saw the sign knocked on the door, met Rod and found we were in heaven! We met Audrey (back from the hairdressers), the welcome was fantastic, room was spacious, had a terrace with view over the bay. Rod even offered to lend me his golf clubs! Breakfast was awesome...

We stayed for one night for my partner's birthday. We found the location to be fantastic, perched up on a hill overlooking Waipu Cove with great views (unbeatable). The accommodation was excellently designed to be everything that a B & B should be, totally maximising the experience of being in such a great location - with views from the bedroom... More

Welcoming hosts, gorgeous location, beautifully appointed accommodation - it doesn't get much better! spacious and extremely comfortable room overlooking Bream Bay, then breakfast upstairs, with time to meet fellow guests. Be sure to have at least one night here if visiting Waipu area!

Fantastic room, view and hosts. Stayed one night but wished that we could have stayed for longer. The room was light and airy with the doors opening to the sea view. There was a large ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. Audrey and Rob were fantastic, with a cooked breakfast served on the deck overlooking the sea.

My husband and I stayed here two nights with two teenagers. (1 girl, 1 boy). Our room, with ensuite was superb. Large with breath taking views and bi-fold doors to totally connect with the outdoors. We ate on the patio both nights. The teenagers shared and were delighted with their 'pad'! Own bathroom/toilet, sitting area, TV etc and more stunning... More
