We had one night in the Puriri Room at Rangimarie Beachstay. From start to finish our experience was fantastic. Not only was the accommodation top notch, but Judy is an absolute treasure. We arrived and it was like we had met an old friend. We immediately felt at home. The views and surroundings at Rangimarie are stunning. There are steps... More

This is a secluded wonderful piece of New Zealand overlooking a lovely beach. We spent a night there using the two accommodations in the house. The apartment on the top floor was roomy with fantastic views over the beach. The downstairs room is pretty small with the the bathroom and toilet out through a common area. We had an evening...

Located about one hour drive north of Gisborne, off SH 35, easy to find with the exact information provided by our very pleasant, well traveled and informative hostess Judy. This is a homestay in a well-seasoned cottage and since we were the only guest on this day, Judy graciously upgraded us to the fantastic upstairs suite with the comfortable living... More

Judy who runs the place is warm and welcoming. We were pleased to arrive after a long drive around the East Cape. The food is amazing. We organised to have dinner upstairs in our room, and it was better than a restaurant. The views from our suite were spectacular, and we loved the beach.

The last time we travelled up this coast was 40 plus years ago, and we camped then right on Anaura Bay beach in a pup tent under a huge pohutukawa. Rather more comfort this time in this truly outstanding b and b. Lovely room with fabulous beach view, warm hostess, and dinner and breakfast that surpassed expectations. We so wish... More

This beachstay is unforgettable. A bit off the beaten track (even SH35 is a bit off the beaten track!) it is very well worth the detour. In fact it is well worth a special trip! Judy, our hostess, treated up like a very indulgent (and very hard working!) young auntie. Nothing too much trouble, spoiling you with treats very much... More

This B&B is so lovely. We felt like we were in a paradise, which we were. We stayed in the cottage on the second floor. You can lie in bed and the views are fantastic. Very private. The owner, Judy is such a lovely kind trusting lady. Her meals are soooo good and you eat outdoors under a covered area.... More

Sometimes you stumble across places or people who make your heart sing, and at Rangimarie we found both. A much-welcome twist of fate was what enabled us to discover this place. We stayed in the villa, and the master bedroom is just stunning - fully private, with panoramic views out across Anaura Bay. We left the french doors open and... More

You won't be disappointed if you can find your way to this excellent B&B. Anaura Bay is a quite beautiful stretch of coast, isolated enough to be almost completely empty. Rangimarie is only a few steps above the beach providing the perfect combination of easy access and excellent views. Judy, the hostess, is an inspiration. Despite some very significant personal...

Stayed at Rangimarie Beachstay for one night and could not be more happy with it. Perfect secluded location overlooking Anaura Bay beach, Judy being the perfect host and otherwise also excellent (including Kitten, the 21-year old most beautiful and still playful cat!). Rangimarie Beachstay is a place you don't want to leave again - you instantly feel at home and... More
