We had warm welcome from Tony, who was a friendly and helpful host. The breakfast was delicious with freshly cooked rhubarb. Following Tony's advice we had a lovely evening meal at the Copthorne Hotel in Omapere and visited the Koutu boulders on the nearby beach. We would strongly recommend walking along the beach through the boulders, some of which are... More

Tony was a great host with heaps of interesting stories to regale. He is knowledgeable about the region. We were upgraded to the king size room when the other guest did not turn up and the continental breakfast was excellent!

Our host, Tony was so very friendly and helpful and willing to share stories of his rich life. Our ensuite room was very comfortable... More

We were warmly welcomed and all was clean and tidy with great views! Very helpful hosts. Delicious breakfast too. The best B & B we stayed in in New Zealand. Loved the quiet area away from traffic noise. The sitting room was spacious with good views.

Stayed 2 nights here. Quiet and relaxing. The place was comfortable, clean and spacious with a view out to the harbour. Tony, the host was helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast was a bit ordinary.

Our first experience of a B&B in New Zealand (and we are kiwis!) which we found very good. Friendly, knowledgeable host Tony even took us for a drive around the local area to see some of the views of the harbour. Very comfortable bedroom with views.
