“Perfect introduction to falling in love with New Zealand”
Reviewed March 16, 2011

Arriving from the UK after an intial 2 night stay in Auckland, the journey by car to Opito Bay was beautiful. It was truely like stepping back in time and we quickly felt at home after the warm welcome from Wally & Maire. We stayed for 2 nights in the lovely 'room with a view' of the Pacific - which was spectacular. We opted to have our meals with our hosts. This provided us with not only lovely food and wine but a chance to get to know the area and to be guided as to how to get the best from our visit. We were even lucky enough to see dolphins in the bay the first morning! A really memorable stay which I instantly recommended to my cousin who followed just a few weeks later.

We enjoyed a 3 night weekend in Opito Bay as part of a wedding, its a secluded lovely beach, great for swimming and quiet reflection. The accommodation was great, we had the self contained unit so some self catering was possible but thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and dinner meals provided. The hosts are friendly and helpful , all up a great stay.

This lovely B&B is situated in one of the best spots in the Coromandel - Opito Bay.
The views of the beach are absolutley stunning. The hosts are outstanding, so helpful and friendly providing such a good service....we found it to be the best accomodation in the area.
I thoroughly recommend this place for overseas visitors wanting to visit the Coromandel.
We had the most pleasant stay and will definitley be going back!
