Chris and Teara were lovely hosts and very accomodating. The home is set amongst Manuka bush with expansive views to the sea. Very quiet, private and relaxing. We had a great meal too, make sure you have dinner there at least once.

This beautifully appointed home is an oasis of comfort. When you're tired and muddy after a day of hard tramping it's especially nice to come back to a deep bathtub and super-comfortable king-sized bed. Teara is an amazing cook and prepares some of the best food you'll find in New Zealand, no exaggeration. Our only issue was the lack of... More

A fantastic experience. Chris is a great host and Teara's meals were first class every time. Beds were extremely comfortable and rooms were large with fabulous views from the decks. Nothing seemed too much to ask for and the warming fire he lit in the bedroom each night was an added pleasure. I would recommend this place to anybody who... More

Chris and Teara were amazing hosts. My mother is the one that stayed here, and she was quite worried about being on the Island by herself as it was her first visit. However her fears were quickly put to rest after meeting the owners. Chris was very generous in taking her around the island and giving her a tour etc.... More

We were lucky enough to find this accommodation on Great Barrier Island for our "baby moon" - our last holiday as a couple for the arrival of our first baby. We'd never been to GBI before but if we ever go back we're definitely staying here! The owners and hosts, Chris and Teara, couldn't do enough for us to make... More

Absolutely perfect stay, stunning location, and above and beyond service from owners Chris and Teara that was hard to believe. Brilliant food as well. Couldn't fault a single thing. Highly recommend it.
