“Paradise found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

My niece bought me a voucher for a night at Tiki Tiko Ora, so I took my husband for a break away to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our expectations of a relaxing time in a beautiful setting were met and exceeded - it is a gorgeous home, and our room was very elegant. What made this visit unforgettable was our hosts, Mark and Angelique, who made us feel so welcome and so special that it turned into a night away with good friends, whom we felt we had known for a very long time. This is truly a unique experience, and we recommend Tiki Tiki Ora to people who are looking for a holiday in a piece of paradise - one which restores body and soul, and will leave you with memories of a very special time. And if you're looking for a gift to spoil someone special, this is definitely the best present you could give them.

Sure, the view is glorious, the home beautifully decorated and clean and our room delightfully sumptious, but it was Angelique and Mark who made our stay superb. Entertaining, interesting and oh so obliging. Beyond expectation and a truly memorable stay!

We had a great couple of days at Tiki Tiki Ora with Angelique and Mark. Their hospitality truly made staying at this place something special. Any little request was attended to. Some highlights were fantastic views, peaceful surroundings, lovely home made breakfasts and eager to please hosts. A short drive to Russell, the car ferry and a local vineyard were also a plus. We would absolutely come back for a quiet romantic couple of days away from the busy city life.

You might be wondering why we would write a review 5 months in. Well, we have had a lot going on and so tripadvisor fell far down our to do list. BUT this place and our hosts were so awesome that we wanted to tell you about it. Even if its 5 months later. The room, the shared area, the balconies and the views were spectacular. And yet this isn't the reason that all this time later we are writing this.. Our stay was made by our hosts, Mark and Angelique.. We brought the New Years in together with flowing champagne and a wonderful BBQ.. They made us feel home from home and more. They gave us ample recommendations, made bookings for us, had evening apperitif together and were so kind. This is no ordinary B&B, at its heart are hosts that love to serve and show indulgent hospitality. It was a precious time and if you can, go and enjoy it too.

We were looking for something special and certainly found it at this venue. Mark and Angelique are perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble and they are always friendly and helpful.
The location is superb (albeit a few km outside Russell) and the views from the balcony whilst taking breakfast or an early evening glass of wine are stunning.
Our first time in Russell but it won't be our last and the same goes for Tiki Tiki Ora

Room Tip: We were in the Euro room which I would rate as the best of the 3 (although all very good)

We stayed here for two nights and simply loved our stay. Everything was just perfect. Our room was comfortable, organised and used to smell always fresh. The views from house were just breathtaking. And last but not the least, the hosts (Mark and Angelique) made us feel so much at home. It was just like staying in home just away from home. In short, it was a perfect B&B experience one could ever imagine. Surely recommended.

Incredible views and Mark and Angelique were wonderful hosts who could not do enough to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.
This is definitely the place to be for that extra personal touch, but with as much privacy as you need. Left feeling very relaxed and sorry to leave such amazing views!!
