My wife and I have just spent two delightful nights here in this lovely B&B on our New Zealand tour. The room an facilities were first class, the breakfast was superb, and you couldn't ask for better hosts.

Lovely and very clean cottage with everything you need. Beautiful seaview and only 30 metres to the private beach. Very helpful hosts. We can really recommend this accommodation.
Thank you Dog & Leonie.
A beautifully presented property in a beautiful location a minute from the sea. What a find! Very kind of owner to give us concession card for the ferry. Convenient for the Kauri forests as well as going north to Cape Reinga.
Lovely spot down a narrow road to the beach. As others have already said, you just step out of the house down the drive and you are on the beach!
Doug and Leonie were very pleasant hosts and we enjoyed chatting to them over breakfast. Especially about their UK travels and Coast to Coast walking experiences! Our room, with a fridge and the separate toilet and bathroom (in a private part of the house) were all well equipped, clean and spacious. Lovely sunny patio area too.
Good spot for walking the coast track with some lovely secluded bays for a picnic lunch and swim.
Sadly we were only here for one night, it is a beautiful area and another couple of nights would have done it more justice. Access to the beach was literally at the front door so we could walk along the beach and enjoy the view at sunset.
The guest area had its own entrance and a small seating area outside, the bedroom was large, well apponted and very comfortable with seperate toilet and bathroom. A bar fridge was useful as we were carrying food items for lunches with us and for cooling that bottle of wine! Access to wifi was also a bonus. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious selection of jams, fruits, yoghurt, cereal and toast. Just a great place to stay.
We stayed in the self-contained cottage at McKenzie's in March 2013 as part of a nine week trip round NZ. The cottage was spacious, comfortable and well-equipped and proved an ideal base from which to explore the Hokianga Harbour area. Excellent value for money and definitely recommended.
