We enjoyed the spa pool on their deck while... More

Thank you Andy and Jenny! Your hospitality exceeded our expectations and we are very appreciative for an excellent few days away. We recently spent the New Years Eve period with our daughters (2 and 5 months) at the Famous Blue Chair B & B. Admittedly the room was a little small for a family with 2 babies and all out... More

I travel extensively and frequently and I must admit this has to rank in my top three best stays. Andy and Jenny are very welcoming and affable, without being intrusive. Andy even gave me a guided tour of a local Maori PA site and was full of information about the area. The quality of the accommodation, Food and Facilities all... More

Jenny and Andy were so supportive and friendly. They told us everything we needed to know about the area and about NZ as we are from California. They were extremely generous with their time and were happy to help us with everything we needed. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful and again very generous with everything you would ever want for... More

Thank you so much Jennie and Andy for your hospitality during our stay. We were very impressed with the breakfasts and found the room to be comfortable.. One of us has arthritis and found the spa very relaxing, and the mattress very supportive. The view of the stars overhead from the spa was magic! We will definitely come back on... More

We spent two days here and enjoyed our stay, the owners are very friendly and like to have a chat and can tell you all about the area. The breakfasts were very good and the complimentary bottle of bubbly on arrival was a nice touch. We didn't find it particularly private as the accommodation is very close to the owners... More

We spent a few nights here and found it to be a fabulous relaxing sanctuary. The owners are so friendly and helpful and really cannot do enough to make your stay special and there are so many nice little touches. The SPA is fabulous and we enjoyed sharing a bottle of wine whilst gazing at the stars in the clear... More

I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation and its hosts, they are knowledgeable in the local area and the accommodation is superb. The breakfast was delicious. Would defiantly go back. Highly recommend the famous fish and chip shop over the wharf at Mangonui.The beach at Cable Bay and the ice cream shop is well worth a visit.

The owners are lovely and bent over backwards to provide us with information. Can't speak highly enough of them - so helpful and friendly, salt of the earth. The room was super clean and comfortable - also nice to have access to the deck and hot tub. It proved an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area -... More
