We loved our stay: it was the end of the summer season, so we had the run of the place to ourselves. And, even better, the undivided attention of our hosts, who are both great fun yet they run a thoroughly professional but laid back establishment. Even full, it only has 3 bedrooms: so you are never going to suffer a crowd! And it really feels like a 'Retreat': a stunning drive, looking down onto the Northland coast and islands, and then you drop down into a pretty little bay and beach. It's this view that 'wow's' you from every room: the bedrooms with their private balconies and the dining room.
And a final word about the food: superb, and far too much of it! We were meant to be B&B, but so enjoyed dinner on the first night, that we opted for it for the rest of the stay.
"We shall return", to mis-quote a famous General.
