“Wonderful Place To Stay At”
Reviewed 18 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Melana is a very accomodating hostess.
Every day a new goodies Fond their way into the room.
The room, kitchen and bathroom were impeccable and cleaned daily.
Breakfast was done as we liked it and it was tasty as well.
The Location with its gardens is very quiet and has fantastic views into
the surrounding hills.
Would come back anytime. Next Time Melana would have to care of the weather as well .
Thanks a lot for your hospitability.

“Perfection is the only word to describe it.”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

What a perfect place to relax, unwind and recharge. From the moment of our arrival, throughout our 2 day stay, and even to the moment of departure we experienced perfection everywhere at this elegant, private B&B. The self contained cottage, just five minutes drive from Taumaranui township, is beautifully appointed with a spacious bedroom / living area, ensuite bathroom, and fully equipped kitchen. Outside, the deck overlooking a corner of the extensive (and gorgeous) gardens provides a quiet and sheltered outdoor space from which to enjoy the various birdsong and peacefulness on sunny afternoon. The little unexpected touches provided by Melana throughout our stay just added to the perfection - the chocolates each day by the bed, the little sweet treats (cake) found under the glass bell cover in the kitchen, the beer and bottle of bubbles in the fridge, the fresh flowers in vases in the kitchen and on the occasional table on the deck. A relax in the private spa was the perfect way to end each day, and as if all this wasn't enough, Melana is a BRILLIANT cook - the breakfasts were...mm..mmmmm!! Couldn't recommend this gorgeous B&B enough and am already looking for an excuse to book in for another visit.....then again, why do I need to find an excuse - staying here is the best excuse we need. Both my husband and I were sorry to leave, but left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Thank you Melana. Hope to join you again some time soon.

“What a find!”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We arrived to home made chocolate cake with our afternoon tea on the balcony of this beautifully appointed suite, then walked through the magnificent garden it overlooked. After coming back from dinner we enjoyed a hot spa bath before sleeping so comfortably. Then a superb breakfast. What a find! We cannot recommend this place highly enough.
