Just 2 minutes walk from where a regular ferry service takes you in 3 minutes across to Whitianga (operating from early morning till late at night). Healthy breakfast buffet to start your day off with. Pam and Rob will give... More

Excellent location - nicest people ever - also one of the cleanest B&B I've visited. Make sure and take the ferry across the bay for dinner- also check out the walk to the PA behind the B&B. Breakfast was very nice - all handmade jams.

Thanks for your lovely comments. When someone else see and feels about a place the way we do, its synergy. So much natural beauty surrounds us in this secluded little peaceful paradise.
