If you enjoy luxurious surroundings and being pampered with subtle, friendly attention, this is the place to stay in the Bay of Plenty area.
My wife and I spent 5 nights at Casa Del Mare after four weeks touring New Zealand. The purpose was to wind down and absorb our experiences. We could not have chosen a better place. Casa Del Mare is a haven of peacefulness. De’arne and Graham are the most gracious of hosts and made us feel totally welcomed into their stunning home. Luxurious appointment and quality are evident in every aspect, from linens to the Mediterranean style gardens adjacent to each bedroom, to the fresh muffins served on arrival. Meticulous attention to detail is evident in all aspects of this boutique B&B.
Hot or cold breakfasts are your choice, but either way you will enjoy well prepared, abundant, and tasty fare. The views with breakfast are of the Bay and add to the specialness of the surroundings.
The large common area between the bedrooms has an entertainment center, tea service, wine glasses, wireless internet, and even a refrigerator. Quiet reading areas are important for us and this area, along with the courtyard, were total comfort in meeting our need to relax. While the beautiful, quiet beach is a very short walk, restaurant dining requires a drive with many choices less than ten minutes away.
We truly enjoyed our hosts, who are fascinating people, each in their own way. They were very attentive with insight, information, directions and recommendations. They even escorted us to a favorite restaurant area in town one afternoon to ensure we found it. It was worth it. I plan to return one day to take Graham up on a promise to go Kontiki fishing.
Thank you De’arne and Graham, for sharing your beautiful home and for providing us with such an enriching experience to end our fascinating trip to New Zealand.
