This B&B is well maintained, homey yet stylish, and comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming and wonderful to talk to. The view is spectacular, and the property is very well maintained. The Queen Ensuites are spacious with glass doors that open onto small patios that face the ocean. The bathroom was clean with a large standing shower and heated towel...

An excellent place to stay. Great views from the room and a short trip down to the beach and cafe. Great selection of cereals for breakfast, with lovely fruit salad. Pheasants running over the lawn. I would highly recommend this as a place to escape to.

A full cook-to-order breakfast was provided where you will not walk away hungry. This was our last night in New Zealand and were heading home to the US the next...

I was walking Te Araroa trail and while passing this B&B decided on a whim to splurge and rest. And I was not disappointed by anything. The place is top notch bordering luxurious with absolutely stunning panoramic views of the bay. But the most amazing thing is the way owners took care of me. Rob took me in his car...

We stayed for one night for my partner's birthday. We found the location to be fantastic, perched up on a hill overlooking Waipu Cove with great views (unbeatable).
