Lyall was already waiting for us after our rainy and windy drive from Paihia and made sure we were comfortably settled in our room. As there are no real facilities in Ahipara we were advised to get supplies in Kaitaia so we make our own breakfast and dinner in the well equipped kitchen. The second evening we were able to...

Lyall and his canine companion Bryn are fabulous hosts. Beach Abode is right on Ninety Mile Beach and the sounds of the Tasman Sea lull you into a happy sleep. The units are very nice, the shared deck and barbecue area add to the friendly feeling. We will be back!

This was our second time staying with Lyall and Bryn. We stayed three nights on this trip, to attend a nearby wedding. Lyall made sure everything was ready for our arrival. The room was nice and comfortable, with great views directly out to the wonderful beach. Would totally recommend Lyall and his wonderful Kiwi hospitality, for both NZ and overseas...

We (a couple from Germany) stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed it very much. For us it was the perfect start for our NZ visit and the right place to calm down.

Bryn and Lyall have been nothing short of awesomeness. Well received with Ikarus freshly grounded coffee beans and a cosy place to just sit back relax and enjoy the views.

Thanks for your kind review. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. Experimenting with different Pizza toppings and sitting around chatting over a tipple while making them always adds to the flavour. Of course, defending them from an incoming Bryn can be a challenge. Kind Regards, Lyall

We stayed at Beach Abode in the Beach-break unit for a week over Christmas. We wanted a quiet, relaxing place that was close to the beach to hear the waves each night and that was also dog-friendly (which can be a challenge to find). Beach Abode was just perfect. Lyall and Bryn are fantastic hosts and so welcoming. He has...

Amazing place to stay, so quiet and relaxing with 90 Mile Beach right there in front of you. Lyall and Bryn were wonderful hosts, happy to have a chat, suggest things to do, or in Bryn's case, bring you a ball to throw :) Sitting on the deck with a glass of wine, watching the most beautiful sunsets - bliss!...
