If you want a B&B with a superb location, this is it. The owners, Jo and Raewyn are very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts on their patio quite excellent - different every day. I will just provide a few words of warning to help future guests (not detracting from my overall 5 star review). There are not 3 restaurants within walking distance as the website states(unless very recently updated) only one, the Church, which is OK but not brilliant. There are no on-site washing facilities, at least in summer due to water shortages. The nearest laundrette is in Whitianga, 1/2 hrs drive away. The the telly in the Te Karaka room is rather small to see properly from the bed (but only needed for inclement weather). All the rooms have some windows without blinds which might be a problem in high summer.
