Chalet Romantica

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We couldn't have asked for anything more!
The Romantica suite was just the place to be for a couple of days of stormy weather.
Excellently appointed.
Luxury bedding, spacious, covered balcony with wonderful bay views, luxury toiletries, and serviced daily. Inge and Ed have thought of every special detail; bathrobes and slippers, chocolates on the pillow each day and even a written welcome as you arrive at the door.
We enjoyed Inge's warm welcome to a splendid breakfast each morning and a very enjoyable time chatting with fellow travelers from various corners of the world. We can't recommend Inge and Ed and their wonderful accommodation highly enough! You won't be disappointed. See for yourself! Thanks Inge and Ed.

Inge and Edi offer cozy, immaculate accommodation with a smile and enthusiasm. Our room and the breakfast room had fabulous view of the Bay of Islands. Breakfast tailored to our varied needs. Our hosts were full of tips and suggestions regarding what to do in the area and where to eat. Our four days FLEW by.

Room Tip: Rooms are varied. We suggest making sure you have a view of the harbor.

We started out trip to New Zealand in the Northllands and stayed at the chalet Romantica the first night. It is situated about 5-10minutes on a hill over looking the harbor. We woke up to a gorgeous view as the sunrise colored the clouds and water. Inside, Chalet Romantica was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The lovely breakfast room also had the wonderful view of the harbor as well as unlimited choices for breakfast. We enjoyed meeting two other couples at breakfast. Inge was very friendly and made us fell very welcome on our first trip to New Zealand.

Room Tip: We were in the cosy top floor bedroom suite.

Recently we stayed for 3 nights at the B&B Chalet Romantica and we can't speak highly enough of our experience. Inge and Ed were extremely friendly and helpful hosts and the Chalet was a delight in all respects being well located, wonderful views, great breakfast, well-kept rooms and simply a wonderful atmosphere for a holiday break. We would have no hesitation in staying at the Chalet next time we're in the Bay of Islands and strongly recommending it to our friends.

We booked the Bellevue room for 8 nights and were very impressed with the welcome, cleanliness, position (view) and facilities provided. Inge (our host) was always friendly and prepared to offer advice as to what we should do next. She was also a great reader of the weather so that we did not plan tours which would be affected by bad wether. The breakfasts were to die for with the best produce provided. We had cooking facilities and used them when we got sick of eating out, a great bonus. A truly memorable place to visit. Chalet Romantica in a name describes the venue well. We did not use the spa or gym but is looked very good.

Room Tip: Decide whether you want a separate bedroom and/or cooking facilities before booking to avoid any dis...

We had a great 1 night stay in Pahia in March 2013. Thanks to Inge who made us very welcome and helped us with all the info we needed for BOI trips. Breakfast was fantastic, our room was great and the views amazing. Could not have asked for more. Thx a lot.

We travelled as two couples on a tour of the North Island, Chalet Romantica was our first B&B on the journey. What an amazing treat! Great location, great view, great hosts, great breakfast, great advise, great rooms! Inge was amazing with all the help she gave and superb breakfasts she cooked. I knew we would be in trouble for the rest of the trip as nothing could live up to this. We may return to Bay of Islands simply to stay at Chalet Romantica. :)
