“Superb in every respect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Thank you David & Dimitri for a much needed luxury break during our North Island drive. The siting of this property, the stylish rooms and fabulously comfortable bed really did pamper us. And the truly "local ingredients" breakfast topped it all off ! An added bonus was to view Dimitris great photos....and we taken back in time to see the BCal aircraft model. Heartily recommended as a high end B & B.

It was a joy to meet you both and delighted you enjoyed your brief stay with us and found the Kupe Suite stylish and our beautiful King Sleigh Bed comfortable. As for the British Caledonian B747 we as you know are donating this to the B Cal Golden Lion Children's Charity to help raise funds for underprivileged children. So sadly we await its departure to a new owner once the highest bid is done, but delighted it bought back memories flying with the amazing airline. Look forward to seeing you again in Whitianga. Kind Regards David and Dmitri

This is my first time writing a review on tripadvisor,although I have read many
to check on international destinations I have traveled to.
Little did I know the first review I would write was about a stunning place in my own
country.That place is Bayview at 91.
The rooms and views are breathtaking,David and Dimitri are so warm and hospitable.Everything is so perfect and I felt perfectly relaxed.
That is why Bayview at 91 is Stunning!

I cannot begin to describe the amazing experience that was staying at Bayview at 91! Words can barely do it justice. David and Dimitri proved to be world class hosts, never once being obtrusive, and always a step ahead of every need and whim... even before I knew I wanted it it was being offered. Every detail of the stay was paid its due attention and I can't recall a time before this that i have ever felt so pampered. My personal tastes in foods were catered to, and everything was made from scratch. In the morning the smell of freshly baked bread and coffee permeated through the hallways.There was perfection even in the presentation of the meals... breakfast, lunch and dinners! My only complaint is that I could not stay longer... to watch the fat wood pigeon playing in the trees outside, the tui birds fleeting in and out of bushels... the distant view of Whitianga, the bays and the rolling tree and meadow clad country-side. I will definitely be including Bayview in my next weekend away Itinerary. Thank you boys, you truly provided the ultimate getaway, a relaxing retreat with class, hospitality and old world charm!

Bayview at 91 is stunning. After a long trip our greeting was warm and lovely. The Kupe suite's finish is second to none i have found. The layers of quality fittings and attention to detail are evident everywhere you look in every room you enter. When you awake the next morning you are greeted by the most stunning views. They make you smile, breath deeply and relax. You cannot help but feel at peace. The icing on the cake was David and Dmitri, beautiful people, we were treated like royalty. Thanks for everything guys and see you again soon.

Stayed for one night at Bayview on a 'Thelma and Louise' trip around the North Island with my 82 yrs young mum. This was a special trip for many reasons which I'd hoped to pack with memories for a lifetime and bring a few smiles to a beautiful person who misses my Dad dreadfully.

Having read the reviews, and booked on that basis, I had seriously high expectations and was very circumspect - business means I stay in too many places too often and can count on one hand those that live upto the hype over the last 25 years.

David and Dimitri were just faultless on every level. The beauty of the location, quality of the rooms and genuine hospitality have all been said before. But these guys have something beyond that, something much harder to define and which goes way beyond running a great business. They are genuinely beautiful in spirit.

The only downside? We stayed here first and everywhere else paled by comparison. I've never bothered to review anywhere before because hand on heart, I would not want someone to go on my word. But this is just different!

David/ Dimitri - thank you sincerely for getting your business so right.

It was a delight and pleasure for us to meet you both and to see that you and Mum enjoyed your stay with us. At the age of 82 it was so lovely to see a graceful lady you have in Mum who was so full of joy, please send our regards to Joan. We thank you for you kind words and look forward to the day we may see you again. Our Best Wishes for the future. David and Dmitri

It is definitively the best homestay we did during our trip in NZ. Location is great with an incredible view over the bay. The room is impeccable: large, modern, with all the facilifites you need, confortable bed and beautiful bathroom. Breakfast was splendid with a lot of choices and all fresh food. But what make this place exceptional is the hosts David & Dmitri. They were so warm, friendly and helpful. You feel like home. They recommended us several restaurants for diner and booked it for us. And they plan everything the tomorrow day for us: we had the perfect day following their program to visit the Coromandels. Thanks a lot for the stay.

WE stayed 2 nights with David and Dmitri at their beautfully appointed property in Whitianga.
To say the experience was beyond our expectations would be an understatement as the service and hospitality provided was so attentive and professional, from evening drinks to a beautiful breakfast, all overlooking the spectacular harbour.
Bayview at 91 would have to be our best B&B experience by far and we will be recommending it to all of our friends.
