If you're visiting Piha, then this is THE place to stay. I stayed during this past summer and it was one of the best decisions I made during my time in New Zealand. All three suites are less than a minute's walk to the beach and maintained to the highest standards.
Relish you're privacy or get to know Bobbie and Julia (owners) -- the choice is yours. Bobbie and Julia's house is on the property, so they are there if you need anything. They could not be more accommodating. I really appreciated their hospitality and warm conversation. It was clear to me that their guests' experience is important to them, which meant a lot to me. Piha is their home and they are more than happy to share their knowledge of the area with their guests or make bookings for local activities on their behalf.
There was also a young (handsome), American WWOOFer working on the property at the time. He was just as helpful and interesting as Bobbie and Julia.More
