Both Karen and I agreed that our stay with Barbie and David goes down as the best B and B ever for us. The property is immaculate, the greeting warm and friendly, attention to detail and quite simply the best breakfast we have had in either a b and b or a hotel. David helped with bus and ferry timetables...

From the sumptuously furnished lounge and dining room, to the top quality linen in the guest rooms, Birdwood House is in a league of its own. Barbie and David were the perfect hosts and made every effort to ensure our stay was flawless. The property is set amongst the trees in a quiet neighbourhood, yet within walking distance of a...

The best B&B we have ever stayed in (in any country). David and Barbie shared their beautiful home with us, they were very friendly and helpful, without being intrusive, the perfect hosts. The breakfast was delicious, first class food and cooked to perfection. And the decanter of port with chocolates, in the room, was just the 'icing on the cake'.

The hosts at Birdwood house B&B made us feel welcome and comfortable. The house and rooms are attractive and well appointed and the breakfasts will set you up for the day. The location is close to a range of local restaurants and close for travel into the city of Auckland or the local towns and beaches. We would recommend Birdwood...

As many previous reviews have stated, David and Barbie are wonderful hosts and we too were warmly welcomed into their beautiful home. We were fortunate to have spent two nights here in the Tui room, which was furnished beautifully and had a wonderful sized ensuite with the best amenities, including a hair straightener. I thought very hard as to how...

Thank you for such a detailed and encouraging review. A make-up mirror for the Tui Room sounds like a good idea. The other two rooms have good lighting above the mirror. You are right about the breakfasts - they are enough to set anybody up for the challenge of driving NZ roads to any destination! Glad you enjoyed your stay...

We found David and Barbie to be friendly interesting hosts. The rooms are beautifully furnished and have port if you desire. Really nice size bathroom. We stayed in Tui.

We stayed one night and thoroughly enjoyed it.
