Stayed here for four nights while exploring the Far North. Nikki and Gavin are kind welcoming hosts who are genuinely interested in ensuring your trip is a good one. Room was clean and tidy. Previous comments about the scrambled eggs are true, very tasty. Happy to stay here if in the area again.

Great spot, walking distance to coopers beach and reserve which has plenty of walking tracks (suitable for mountain bikes too). Nice private rooms with comfortable beds and black out curtains too. First time visiting far north NZ for me. Nicki and Gavin are full of great tips on sights to see around the area. The breakfast has everything I could... More

We had a couple of nights at this lodge whilst exploring the bay of islands and local beaches. It was conveniently situated for this, but there aren't too many eating and drinking places nearby. The hosts were very helpful andenthusiastic and are in the process of updating the furnishings. Tables and chairs were being replaced during our stay. The beds... More

This place was great. It wasn't on the beach, but did overlook some great fields from your room and ocean views from the upstairs communal patio. The hosts, Gavin and Nikki couldn't be nicer. The rooms had been redone and they were terrific and really comfortable, the pillow in itself was amazing and Having suffered a sore neck from different... More

Love this place. After 18 days in NZ, we still recall the yummy breakfast (which is well presented), lovely hosts, clean, comfortable stay and adorable dogs. Nice view for breakfast too. Easy drive to get food for dinner too. Small kitchen but adequate for us.

Fantastic visit and a real homely atmosphere. We were only staying for one night but the hosts made us feel very much welcome. The rooms were clean and tidy. There were nice little touches like putting a torch in the rooms. Good attention to detail. The breakfast is really good and you get to enjoy a great view while you... More

Me and my girlfriend had planned to stay in this lovely place for one night. At first sight this place was great. The room was really comfortable, the view from the balcony was beautiful and having Nikki's wonderful breakfast on it was amazing. Unfortunetly, while trying to go out for diner our car broke down at the b&b. The hosts,... More
