Visiting the Longhouse was a wonderful experience. I was only there for a night, but I just loved the deck and the view of the tea-tree, with the smell of the ocean not too far away. The reason for my visit was unusual, but it involved meeting up with friends and what was wonderful about Longhouse was the amazing dinner that John prepared for us. I came home to Australia determined to make my own pate, John told us it is easy, but I haven't made it yet - that's the thing about the kind of hospitality that chefs can provide, they make the food look so easy and taste delicious.
The rooms are great, the deck is a fabulous place to sit and reflect on all the wonderful sights the Bay of Islands has to offer, and chat with great hosts and new friends, John and Mike, as well as having a wonderful dinner with my old friends.
