Our criterion for selecting lodgings is as follows: Cleanliness, Privacy, Well appointed Kitchen, Location (close to sights), and Internet Access. Lyness Suite met or exceeded our expectations in each category. We spent three nights with Adrian and Sharon and found them to be helpful and delightful hosts. The view from the Suite’s private deck is outstanding. We highly recommend Lyness Suite as your lodging in the Bay of Islands Area.

Paradise! What a wonderful place to stay. I will never forget that glorious view across the emerald lawn to the ocean below. Sharon and Adrian are the perfect hosts. We stayed in the luxurious suite, contained a big beautiful bed,fireplace and windows galore. I sat at our breakfast table, inhaled the scent of a Freesia bouquet on our table and listened to the morning birdsong. I loved the elegant bathroom with a big beautiful soaking tub and heated bathroom floor! Our hosts gave us great advice on the local sites and history. I'll be back, I want to bring my sister to show her this amazing place. Thank You Sharon and Adrian!

Our stay in the Lyness Suite was a highlight of our recent trip to the North Island. The fine linens, luxurious bath, king size bed and private patio had us feeling luxurious and pampered. The views across the lawn and romantic garden to the inlet below are stunning. And Sharon and Adrian have that special knack of providing the right combination of privacy and cheerful assistance. This was our second stay with them since we had the pleasure of renting the cottage below the main house for an entire month in 2003. The cottage is equally charming and allows for a bit more privacy as well as a beautiful view of the inlet. Both the suite and the cottage served as a convenient home base to visit the best of Northland and provided us with "the perfect get away".

We knew we had picked the perfect spot for our 5 night stay in Kerikeri when we drove up the shady lane to Lyness Accommodation. The 1920's house has been beautifully restored with incredible attention to detail evident everywhere. The huge garden and resident sheep add to the warm ambiance Sharon and Adrian have created. A bowl of fresh fruit and hand-made chocolates welcomed us in the Lyness Suite, along with a fireplace in the sitting area, a table overlooking the inlet, a full kitchen, and our own patio complete with barbeque. The bathroom is worth a special mention with it's huge shower, tub, and heated towel bars! Friends stayed in the room down the hall which also had it's own patio and lovely garden view. We also had a tour of the cottage tucked below the garden and directly over the inlet - great place for a longer stay.
Sharon and Adrian were a great source of information about the area and about life in New Zealand, past and present. Lyness is a short drive to the lovely town of Kerikeri and central to other sites in the Bay of Islands and Doubtful Bay. Highly recommended for an extended stay in the North Island.
