“Tranquil”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Thanks Maria for a wonderful final night of our first and hopefully not last trip to New Zealand.
Were pleasantly surprised when we arrived, B&B accomodation is separate from the main house which gave us privacy. Our room was large, immaculately furnished and spotlessly clean. The guest lounge had everything you could possibly want.
Liked the idea of selecting breakfast the night before from a menu. Like other guests I can thoroughly recommend the Bircher muesli and Maria was kind enough to write me down the recipe so I can recreate back home - although it won't be the same without the views.
As it was the last day of our trip Maria laid the table for breakfast outside which was a lovely touch and after cooking my husbands breakfast joined us which was really nice.
Would love to stay here again and for longer to explore the area as we used it as a stop off but there is obviously a lot in the area to see and do and Maria had plenty of good suggestions.

We were booked in an Auckland hotel for our final night in New Zealand, but after having spent one hectic night in Auckland a few days before, we couldn't bring ourselves to return to the rat race. The rest of New Zealand had been so peaceful! So at the last minute, and with the help of "tripadvisor", we located Warkworth Country Retreat, just a few kilometers from Auckland. What a find! The beautiful home with it's private guest quarters and beautiful garden, overlooking the soothing green pastures we'd become so fond of, it provided a wonderful evening for leaving beautiful New Zealand memories in our minds. Many thanks, also, to the charming hostess and her wonderful breakfast!

We needed a place to stay after a Matakana wedding, and somewhere where my mum could look after my 18 month old while we were out. We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Maria's paradise. She even provided Chloe with a port cot and some toys! Chloe loved walking around the property with nan and seeing all the animals, and the accommodation was spacious and luxurious. We were treated to some home baking in the morning and a friendly tour of the main house with 2 other bed and breakfast rooms, which also looked lovely. Would love to come back and spend more time! Thanks Maria.

This is an amazing place to stay, a friend and I spent four nights there and loved the care we were given. The breakfast is lovely, we got hooked on the Bircher Muesli. There was always baking to greet us when we arrived back from the intense course we were doing. The rooms were comfortable, clean and the welcome really was fantastic.

My partner and I spent a marvellous weekend here back in 2011. The suite was lovely a great place to relax and recuperate. We went out for long evening strolls. Maria was so welcoming you felt like a visiting friend rather than a guest. What a joy.

We came up to Warkworth from Auckland to attend a 7 day course at Mahurangi Technical Institute. We were so fortunate to discover Warkworth Country Retreat and booked their stand alone one bedroom apartment for 8 nights. They also have a 2 bedroom internal apartment in the house that is equally as gorgeous, new and well appointed.

This has been like a holiday, the location, the cozy well appointed apartment and fabulous hosts makes it very hard to return home.
Very close location to town but far enough out to be quiet and peaceful. This is a new well appointed apartment and with everything that you would expect and more from a Five star Hotel. (The home baking is a wonderful extra that you dont get in a five star hotel)

Highly recommendend and we would love to come back.

A lovely and luxurious stopover for our first night of a 6-night sojourn around the Northland area of New Zealand. We were warmly welcomed by Maria and shown around her beautiful home. Our suite was extremely comfortable and lacked nothing. Dinner was served in the family dining area and we thoroughly enjoyed Maria's company - great conversation, some excellent travel tips and a delicious meal of roast beef.....home grown! We would highly recommend this B&B.
