Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We had a wonderful weekend away in Northland recently and had an amazing stay at Tiki tiki Ora. Mark and Angelique were incredible hosts who made us feel totally at ease and welcome in their wonderful home. The house is so beautifully decorated and has the most amazing antiques and treasures and the beds are very comfortable! The views are spectacular and the house has a real positive energy about it, as its set high up on the hill! We had a truly wonderful time and will definitely be back to stay the next time we're up in Russell. This B&B has it all, location, atmosphere, luxury and comfort and a great couple who look after you the minute you walk through the door!

We would highly recommend a visit to Tiki Tiki Ora. From the moment that we arrived our hosts welcomed us to their beautiful home and made us feel like we were long lost friends! The accommodation is absolute luxury with 5 star touches that are comparable with some of the best resorts. Mark and Angelique are both fascinating and humorous making them the ultimate entertaining team. The impressive collection of memorabilia that adorns their home is astounding. Before our departure we absorbed the breath taking views as we indulged in a Salmon and Champagne breakfast culminating an undeniably most memorable stay.

We stayed in Tiki Tiki Ora on a recent visit from the UK. Mark and Angelique were absolute fantastic hosts - Mark and Angelique were extremely solicitous and couldn't have been more helpful. They made the whole stay a delight. The hotel itself is lovely, and Mark accommodated my wife's vegetarian request at the last minute.

We will treasure the memory of our stay at Tiki Tiki Ora, a small slice of Paradise. Like everyone else who has posted a review we were made to feel most welcome and all our needs were cheerfully met, even down to Mark fixing a faulty windscreen wiper that was threatening to spoil our holiday. We enjoyed the views from the deck and our room including hills surrounded by mist, movement of boats in the bay, weka foraging in the garden and a beautiful full moon which we were able to view through Mark's telescope. Angelique has a great affinity for languages and enjoyed conversing to my husband in Dutch.

Our stay here with Mark and Angelique was a memorable one. We left here feeling totally relaxed and rested. They were amazing hosts and extremely hospitable. The house provided warm and comfortable surroundings in what is a stunning part of the country. The breakfast was excellent and the coffee great. Thank you both for a great weekend.
