we had a great experience with Mark and Angelique at tiki tiki ora. Amazing views from our bedroom, the breakfast was divine, so were the bedrooms and bathrooms and everything was clean and tidy. We had excellent infos on activities and places to visit nearby. We loved it, especially we felt like styaing with good friends.

"Wonderful" is the first word that comes to mind. The views alone are worth the stay, but the uncompromising hospitality of the two owners makes the experience. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Bay of Islands, Tiki Tiki Ora is an obvious choice.

Tiki Tiki Ora B & B is perched high on a hillside just outside the historic town of Russell (first capital of New Zealand!) with panoramic views over the Bay of Islands. It is a remarkable location; peaceful and quiet, beautifully landscaped, with terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the incredible scenery. From the moment we arrived, we felt like...

We had a fantastic experience with Mark and Angelique! From the moment we got out of our car we were welcomed as friends into their beautiful B&B. Views are amazing from many areas of the property and there's a great 30 min hike to the top of a nearby hill/mountain with 360 degree views of the surrounding islands. They. both...

We arrived late at night, tired and ravenous, but Mark and Angelique put us right at ease with wine, cheese and good conversation. It was too dark to take in the spectacular views, but we made up for it the next morning with a delicious breakfast on the deck. They were so helpful and accommodating in arranging a boat cruise...

We had in mind boutique style accommodation with magnificent views for our small and intimate wedding, and Tiki Tiki Ora most certainly delivered. Mark and Angelique were superb hosts and could not do enough to help us, organising and facilitating to make our day relaxed and very special. The house and grounds overflow with character and are complimented with stunning...

We booked super late over the Christmas / New Year holiday and magically found one room still available at the Tiki Tiki Ora B&B for one night. What a treat and experience! Mark and Angelique were the perfect hosts. The B&B is gorgeous and the views from the deck are amazing. We wish we would have stayed longer! Highly recommend!

We spent 4 wonderful days at the Tiki Tiki Ora Bed & Breakfast. Angelique and Mark are true hosts, warm and welcoming; they also provided us with worthwhile activities and spots to see. The location is fantastic and the view perfect. The breakfast is simply amazing. Russel, Pahia and the entire Bay of Islands provide enough opportunities to have a...

The only way to describe Tiki Tiki Ora is heaven on earth. On arrival we received a warm welcome and much appreciated beers, wine, cheese and nibbles after a long drive from Auckland. We were completely unprepared for any dinner arrangements and we were sorted out with a booking at The Gables within five minutes of asking for recommendations. It's...

I would highly recommend staying at Tiki Tiki Ora! Mark and Angelique and incredible hosts. They are attentive, open, interesting, enthusiastic and respectful. The property and accommodations are beautiful. Hearing the bird songs and taking in the breathtaking view was rejuvenating. Also, the breakfast was incredible. We loved the eggs, fresh local butter, and the croissant that tasted as if...
