“Wonderful and relaxing”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

This was our second stay after a gap of eight years - wish we had made it back sooner! We enjoyed it even more second time around, if that's possible. Our room was just as we remembered it, so spacious and comfortable with everything we could possibly need. The views over Doubtless Bay are amazing and we really enjoyed our delicious breakfasts and dinners. Thanks Martha & Roly for your wonderful hospitality , it was great to see you again.

my family was recently fortunate to have booked a couple of night lodging with roly and martha at their lovely bed and breakfast. the setting was spectacular, the rooms spacious and comfortable, and the breakfasts wonderful. if you happen to be in touring northland, do yourself a favor and book a night or two in cable bay at carneval. it is worth it.

I'm still alive and gone to Heaven was my reaction when we saw the magnificent scenery. Roli and Martha were superb hosts and thoroughly spoilt us. We should have stayed 3 days.Thank you both so much.
Kindest Regards

We stayed at Carneval 3 nights. We were so warmly welcome. Information about the area's sights to see and explore were explained with maps included. Some sights we may have missed if it were not for Martha and Roly's careful research. Our room was spacious, the bathroom and particulary the shower was great -- lots of shelves in the closet - fresh spring water and fruit in the room - fantastic outdoor seating and lounging areas - all with incredible views. And on a clear night, you feel like you are in a planetarium, it is so spectacular. And a beautiful beach at the bottom of the hill for walking, bathing or fishing - water a little chilly for us Floridians. A true European smorgasbord breakfast awaits you with speciality homemade breads, jams,meats, breads, cereals, eggs anyway you like and much more. Further, you have the tranquility not available at other (Bay of Islands) lodgings

We recently stayed at the carnival, cable bay. Very much a home away from home. Every detail had been attended to. Beautiful setting with fantastic views. Our hosts, roly and Martha, could not have been nicer or more attentive. Both of them were very knowledgable and extremely helpful. I would have no hesitation In recommending carnival to anybody contemplating a stay In the doubtless bay region.

My wife and I stayed with Roly and Martha for three nights, taking dinner on two of them.

The welcome, accommodation, location, hospitality, quality of breakfast and dinner were all out of the top drawer!

We recommend Carneval Ocean View without hesitation.
