What a great place to stay! Great views, privacy, the room tastefully decorated, fruit and chocolates in the room, a welcome drink by the hospitable hosts... And a very enjoyable, breakfast with all one could wish for. This place is to be highly recommended for a special occasion, or just a relaxed stay away from home. A Plus.

My husband and I with my adult daughter thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at Carnavel. Even though the place is available for minimum of two nights these wonderful hosts, very kindly agreed to accommodate us only for one night as soon as they got to know my daughter had only 3 night stay in NZ.. I highly recommend this... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Carneval Ocean View. The late April weather was spectacular, the view from our bedroom window was the best B and B view ever. Our Swiss hosts were such a lovely couple taking care of us with yummy breakfasts and drinks/nibbles in the evening. We can't recommend this B and B highly enough. Definately number... More

We stayed at Carneval twice during the first quarter of 2016. The ocean view from this hilltop heaven is simply breathtaking. We have traveled across the globe and stayed in numerous luxurious places, but I can say without hesitation that Carneval is simply the best! I never cease to marvel at the fabulous ocean view, whenever we stay at Carneval.... More

Excellent location, accommodation, breakfast (Swiss-style+English!!). Stunning view over Doubtless Bay. We also had dinner, again excellent. Roly and Martha were very welcoming, helpful and friendly, Roly an excellent chef. We had some super conversations about the world, the universe and everything including Donald Duck or Trump. Thoroughly recommended.

Roll and Martha are really splendid hosts right from your arrival. The views from their home are spectacular and the rooms and facilities are outstanding. But wait for the Swiss style breakfast -do not miss the Bircher or the yoghurt

We enjoyed our time here. Our hosts were very attentive. The Swiss breakfast was unusual but very nice. We now know how to make genuine Swiss muesli. Local restaurants were very nearby in Manganui and were very good.

We arrived at 19.00 a little tired and frustrated with the extra detours we made, to be welcomed by Martha and Roly to join them in a drink in their courtyard overlooking the fabulous views over Doubtless Bay.
