We had a lovely time at Okiwas Bay at the start of our 3 week South Island Holiday. A truly 5 Star B&B with excellent hosts, great food (try the dinners!) and wonderful views. Everything we had hoped for! we will be back.

The Rooms are very nice and tidy - Susie & Martin, the owners were very friendly and helping us with late arrivals and very early starts in the morning due to changes in our travel agenda... Very relaxing tour to local wineries with Martin - was a great...

I had room number 1, a waterfront room, a very special view. Even better were my hosts, Susie and Martin. My two friends and I quickly felt at home with them, very nice folks living in a very nice home and location. Easy 30 minute drive to the ferry in Picton, no rush hour traffic just lots of curves in...

Fabulous location overlooking 40 Kms of Queen Charlotte Sound. Excellent accommodation with catering to match. Terrific hosts who are both very accommodating. Great location, handy for walking the QCT and trips from Havelock and Picton or merely chilling.

We are just back from a fantastic self planned tour of both New Zealand islands and Okiwa Bay Lodge was the best accommodation of our 21 days in New Zealand (and we had good experiences everywhere). Martin and Susie have a beautiful home with the most stunning views. The home is secluded yet easily accessible, looking onto the ever changing...

Saw this great B&B online and decided we had to stay there--it didn't disappoint! Susie and Martin were wonderful--attentive, friendly and chatty. We were sorry to have to drive to Picton to get on the ferry--we would have loved to stay longer. What a beautiful home and unbelievable views!
