Sharing our homestay with these wonderful warm friendly guests and providing warm hospitality is a pleasure for us, as well as ensuring their stay is comfortable and cosy and providing an ample pantry of goodies so that all their needs are met. Also showing them what our area - Beautiful Ohope - has to offer - good coffee shops, restaurants, art gallery and of course our beautiful beach providing a peaceful scenic walk after a lovely breakfast. The guests pleasure at staying at our homestay is reflected in the wonderful review these ones have written and we thank them for words of praise for our homestay. Fran, Business Owner

We enjoy providing warm hospitality to all our guests, and ensuring their stay is a memorable one . We endeavour to make our homestay a home away from home and making it as comfortable and cosy as possible so guests can relax and enjoy the ambience of our place. These guests were such a pleasure to have in our home and enjoyed meeting them over a wine and some canapés. We appreciated their feedback on Trip Advisor. Fran, Business Owner

"All 3 are lovely"
"There is no swimming pool or fitness centre but when there is kayaks overlooking the beach then your swimming pool is the Ohope Beach and your fitness centre is kayaking towards the magnificent active volcano White Island"
"Our room had an ensuite, but our friends also had their own large bathroom just along the hall."
"Loved the 3 bedroom apartment!"
"We stayed in the cottage and that was so much room for 2 of us!"
