Gorgeous home laden with vintage artefacts and treasures, sumptuous rooms with divine hosts who are a delight to spend time with. This is a must stay and enjoy a glass with and if you have time spend the night and enjoy the views, splendour and food.

My friend and I stopped over one night on the way to 90 mile beach on a motorcycle adventure ride. What a great place to stay John organized off street parking for the bikes.
Had a couple of beers at the pub across the road and great fish and chips...........
John and Dorothy were very help full and got a nice breakfast ready early for us to catch the car ferry..........
Would recommend and stay again when next at Rawene
Thanks Paul & Rodney

We found this place last minute after another place let us down. So glad we did! John and Dorothy were convivial and welcoming hosts, the house is splendidly decorated, and when you know that a lot of the lighting and other fittings and furnishings were created by John, it makes it even more special. We chose to have dinner and breakfast there and the meals were lovingly made by Dorothy. We haven't done a lot of B&Bs together, usually preferring to keep to ourselves... but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay... bring some wine and relax!

Room tip: We stayed in the front room with the Peacocks! Awesome.

Beautiful well appointed rooms ( a fireplace in the bathroom!!), friendly people, amazing views and decor. Authentic period furniture, fabulous views, excellent food and quite a bit of laughter in the evening!

We booked this hidden gem for a family road trip weekend away from Auckland & loved every minute.

Hosts John & Dorothy are brilliant and made us feel so at home at this special BNB.

We brought our 3 year old son which when I arrived I thought may be a challenge with all the amazing antiques John has collected but he was happily reclusive in our cosy room - so no problems there.

The queen room with the extra single bed was perfect for us. It's so peaceful and quiet - best sleep and so comfy.

The food is divine I really suggest booking breakfast & dinner. Dinner was more of a challenge for us to have in-house with our wee one as he can't sit through three courses but if we had come kid free we would have loved it - smelt & looked amazing.

Ambience outside on the deck is so picture perfect and the added great company & selection of wines on hand make for the perfect evening.

This is a stay you won't forget & well worth detouring while traveling through northland.
