“A weekend to remember!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

A surprise weekend away organised by my (now) fiance - Hilary & Peter (..and the delightful Ben)made sure everything was absolutely perfect for us both. From hard to find champagne to a private chef, their personal touch made the weekend one i will never forget. We will be back! Thank you!! x

Room Tip: Rooms were beautiful and the property was lovely.

It was a great pleasure to return to the fantastic spot. Hilary & Peter do a perfect job of making you welcome and helping with any possible request. A good way to recharge your batteries in a very short space of time. We flew from Tauranga airport this time, direct on SunAir and this is the way to go. Fast and very scenic. It is a small plane, but rock steady and Hilary had pre-arranged our Rental car to meet us. So basically an hour from home and we were at Mt Saint Paul.
The Island is a bit quieter in the winter months, so plan your evening meal eating spots in advance with Hilary.
We can't wait to return again.

Even better than the first trip to Mt St Paul. The trip got delayed by 24hours due to inclement weather. When you think Great Barrier Island you know there's the possibility of some travel delay - it's what makes getting there so rewarding, so we stayed a day later too. I would advise flexibility with dates so you can change at short notice if necessary, or reschedule, don't be put off going there. Everyone and everything over there, it would appear, works with the 'minor' inconvenience caused by weather conditions, including Hilary and Peter. It just isn't a problem to reschedule. I highly recommend going to Gt Barrier Island, and experiencing Mt St Paul Estate. Friendly, hospitable, helpful, comfortable, peaceful, relaxing ~I'm going to run out of room, but I certainly could go on and on. go on - give them a call, it's brilliant :-)

Room Tip: I particularly like either of the two front of house upstairs sea view rooms to choose from - one wi...

We wanted to have a hassel free weekend, and Hilary and Peter did this for us by organising our flights, rental cars and recomending the dinning places etc. The room has magnificant seaview and my husband and I adore this country style building.

The breakfast is one of the nicest meal we had in the island, thanks for looking after us.

Hilary and Peter were excellent hosts. Our accommodation was first class - everything we could possibly have wanted was provided. Hilary organising flights and the rental car made it so streamlined for us. We would highly recommend anyone looking for a peaceful, luxury stay on Barrier to stay here.

We had a fantastic weekend staying with Hilary, Peter and of course... Ben the dog. They were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble.

Hilary was very helpful getting all of our travel and rental car hire sorted so that everything was very easy. She also provided some great recommendations for restaurants and made all the bookings for those as well.

Breakfast at the Estate was so good and we ate so much that we had to climb a mountain to work it off.

Our room was excellent with the most enormous bed we have ever seen! We had a lovely views from each of our two private balconies.

We highly recommend not only Mount St. Paul Estate but also the whole Great Barrier Island experience. Great Barrier Island is a slice of paradise and Mount St Paul Estate provides the perfect base to enjoy it from.
