A fantastic experience. Chris is a great host and Teara's meals were first class every time. Beds were extremely comfortable and rooms were large with fabulous views from the decks. Nothing seemed too much to ask for and the warming fire he lit in the bedroom each night was an added pleasure. I would recommend this place to anybody who... More

Chris and Teara were amazing hosts. My mother is the one that stayed here, and she was quite worried about being on the Island by herself as it was her first visit. However her fears were quickly put to rest after meeting the owners. Chris was very generous in taking her around the island and giving her a tour etc.... More

We stayed at Mount St Paul for Anzac weekend with our good friends. It was great. We arrived on Friday and had supper in ( beef steak, pannacotta cant remember the others but it all went together so well! ) Teara is a fabulous chef. So great to be able to have a meal cooked and served in house while... More

We were lucky enough to find this accommodation on Great Barrier Island for our "baby moon" - our last holiday as a couple for the arrival of our first baby. We'd never been to GBI before but if we ever go back we're definitely staying here! The owners and hosts, Chris and Teara, couldn't do enough for us to make... More

Absolutely perfect stay, stunning location, and above and beyond service from owners Chris and Teara that was hard to believe. Brilliant food as well. Couldn't fault a single thing. Highly recommend it.

Just an amazing place. We were so very pleased with our stay and would recommend it to anyone. The owners go out of their way to ensure we experienced GBI to the fullest. Amazing vies and the food was to die for.

My partner and I needed a getaway from the city and booked to stay at the Mount St Paul estate last minute the night before. Chris called me almost immediately to confirm our booking and to offer us further information about the trip which we really appreciated. We booked to travel on the ferry from Auckland and had a great... More

Have happily stayed here before, this time was a 'new menu' check visit and became a winters day lunch of epic proportions. Magnificent property in a wonderful setting, warm to bubbly hosts with talent to charm and entertain. You will have a unique and priceless experience.
