On arrival our Cottage was cold, the extra bed we had booked was not made up the Apartment was good but not luxury had all the basics. There was no services. The grounds were the best part of the complex really lovely. We were very disapointedNot worth the $319.00 per night would not go back

We were most disappointed in most aspects of our stay. It is ridiculously expensive for one big room with a minute bathroom with no bath- fibreglass shower!! And they charge 2.5% for credit card. There is hardly a water view- it is hidden by huge trees. There is no walk along the estuary. It is remote which may appeal to... More

We stayed for two nights in the detached waterfront French cottage. It has a full kitchen, with a gas hob (no oven) microwave (convection) and breakfast bar. The lounge area incorporates a large sofa (a bit old and now too soft) a TV with DVD and a table with four chairs. The bedroom has a king sized bed with en... More

Bream Bay Lodge looks beautiful and there's lots of lovely rescue animals there that give you a lovely welcome. Everyone there is really friendly and nice but at the prices we were paying I do expect a little bit more. For example in the cottage where our friends were staying all the cast iron outside furniture was dirty, a wash... More

We stayed in the French villa which my husband had organized for our wedding anniversary. What a beautiful villa, nice and spacious. You can hear the ocean which is walking distance. We come to waipu frequently and would definitely stay at bream bay again. The hosts were lovely too. One night was not enough :)

The welcome was second to none, and the facilities excellent. Actually it passed one of my little private tests, which has become a bit of a game - do they provide hot chocolate, or milo, and they do! On a more serious note, there are one or two little criticisms. I found the layout not very homely, or user friendly,... More

We stayed at Bream Bay Lodge in Waipu just before Christmas last year. It was hard to book as it was near the peak season but the staff was very understanding and helpful. The room was clean and the service was great. Highly recommended.

We stayed two nights in the studio accommodation. Hosts/owners were friendly, gracious and helpful with dinner and activity recommendations. We were given a tour of the property and made "friends" with the rescue animals. Kayaks were available to navigate across he small estuary to the bird sanctuary sand dunes. Over the Dunes was the most amazing beach with not sole... More

Stayed in a self contained unit for three nights then extended our stay by two nights in February 2015 as we enjoyed the place so much. Clean, well-appointed furnishings. Rural setting with a number of domestic animals on the property. The hosts accommodate rescue animals so it is great to know that a part of our rent was going towards... More

The Bream Bay Lodge was a beautiful B & B in Waipu and definitely worth a stay! Annette & Grant very fabulous hosts and have an amazing location. They offered us suggestions for sightseeing and restaurants. We stayed in a studio room, but they also offer cottages. I would highly recommends staying here if your travels take you to Waipu!...
