We stayed for two nights in the Bougainvillea Suite and enjoyed it very much. The appartment was very clean, the bedrooms spacy and the beds very comfortable.In the evening we enjoyed the beautiful garden with a great view over the bay. Pam and Rob were very nice and knowledegable hosts and we always had a good time with them during breakfast which was very nice with all the homemade jams. Unfortunately it rained heavily on our second day so we could not see all the things we wanted to but if you stay this side of the bay you are certainly closer to the attractions like hot water beach than from Whitianga side. And if you want to go out for dinner it's just a short ferry ride across the bay. We can recommend the warm hospitality of Ferry Landing Lodge.
