This was the best B&B of the whole holiday. We were made to feel very welcome and all the local knowledge was great. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Just the right balance - friendly and helpful but still had your own space. Would recommend at least a 3 night break, we stayed 4 nights and would have liked longer.... More

We stopped at Baystay for 3 nights selected purely from searching the internet. The B&B is in a great location to explore the bay of islands. The hosts were excellent ensuring we had everything, rooms were modern/clean, breakfast was also very good. Internet access was an advantage.

Great home away from home in the beautiful Bay of Islands. Rooms are comfortable, quiet and tastefully furnished. Common lounge area with lovely view across the valley and an open deck which is a great place to hang out after a days sightseeing or dolphin chasing.
