I'll try my best to be impartial and stick to the facts.... My wife and I stayed in the "shed." Sounds quaint, but it really is an old tool shed that was redone to look like a cottage. Yeah, there are incredible oceans views, but that didn't make up for an uncomfortable double bed, no air conditioning, no screens on the windows, no microwave, no stove and no TV. Because there is no AC, when it's warm at night you have to leave the windows and door open for ventilation. If so, be prepared to move under the mosquito netting shortly after the sun goes down. Likewise, though the place is billed as eco-friendly, but be prepared to drench yourself and the shed with the provided insect spray to keep the bugs at bay. The outdoor bathroom is private enough with a great shower, but when the wind stops you'll need that insect spray again. On our last night it was sweltering with no wind, so we left the door and windows open. The wind picked up during the night, but alas so did the rain. When we awoke in the morning the foot of our bed and our luggage were completely soaked. There is a toaster, coffee pot and a small fridge in the room, which was stocked with fruit, bread, jam, butter, honey and OJ, which were replenished after 3 days same as the linen and towels. A generous bottle of dish soap is provided along with a plastic tub and sponges for washing dishes in the outdoor bathtub. You have to walk up to the main house to use wifi as there is no reception in the "shed," but even then it is intermittent. We made due most of the time with a hotspot using our cellphone. The pool was nice, but the hot tub was only filled for the first few days of our stay. Since the B&B doesn't offer meals and there is no stove or microwave in the "shed," you can dine at the Schnappa Rock restaurant in Tutukaka, which is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive. There are no other restaurants within about 30 minutes. Otherwise you better be creative with the furnished gas grill. You can buy limited food items at the grocery store in Tutukaka. The kayaks and paddle boards that are available are functional, but pretty beat up. In summary, this was a very expensive stay. Over $1500 for 5 nights. The owners should use that money to buy an air conditioner, a microwave and SCREENS for all of the windows all of the windows. I would rate this place a 1-star based on the accommodation, maybe bump it to 1.5-star due to the scenery. However, if you want the views, but won't settle for less than 5-star accommodations, go up the coast a short drive to Paihia and stay at the Moon Shadow B&B. No comparison, but about the same price.
