Highest recommendations for Parituhu, everything was wonderful. The house is beautiful with a pretty garden and a great water view, it is located with in a few minutes walk to the ferry and the center of quaint Devonport with its shops and cafes. Lindsay and Helen are wonderful hosts and delightful to talk to and learn more about anything New Zealand and Maori culture. Helen can also provide airport pick-up/drop-off and custom tours. Stop searching, you have found the best B&B to stay at.

I can't recommend Parituhu more highly, Helen and Lindsay are marvellous caring hosts. At one point I had a minor health concern and they made sure I was able to get to the doctor and reassured me greatly. Devenport is a lovely place to relax and get over your jet lag and the business of central Auckland is a short scenic ferry ride away.

What a beautiful start for us in NZ. Lindsay and Helen are the warmest host and made us feel confortable instantly. The house is super charming with a Bayview and a cosy garden. The location is in one of the nicest district around Auckland with all commodities nearby. Don't scroll, you found your piece of heaven!

We arranged to stay at Parituhu Bed & Breakfast Beachstay for our pre-cruise (2 nights) and post-cruise (5 nights) accommodations. This was our very first trip to New Zealand, so were unsure of where to stay and simply rolled the dice and based our decision from on-line reviews. Well? we could not have made a better choice! First of all, the hospitality provided by Lyndsay & Helen was amazing. Beautiful ladies who could not do enough for us. We were so sad to leave them after only 2 nights, but were excited to “return home” after our cruise for another five nights. As a travelling couple, it was the perfect accommodations for us. Our room was set apart from the rest of the house via a hallway. We had our own private bathroom within the area. We were invited to sit outside and enjoy the gardens and also to relax in the living space adjacent to the gardens. Breakfast was always a delectable treat, prepared with love by Lyndsay. Helen, as a licensed tour driver was able to pick us up and drop us off at the airport throughout our travels. She also took us out on a day trip to the Muriwai Gannet Colony (west coast) and a brief visit to Brick Bay. We loved our adventures with her! Devonport was the “perfect” place to reside pre/post cruise. The ferry wharf was a 5-7 minute walk from Parituhu and Auckland was easily accessible. Lyndsay provided us with “HOP” cards which we could use for discounted ferry fares and easy swipe on/off the ferries. We were away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but were within easy reach (10 minutes) via the very efficient and frequent ferry services. When we returned post-cruise and stayed for five nights, we easily took day trips to Tiritiri Matangi, Rangitoto, Rotoroa, and the Coromandel (again via the excellent ferry system). We absolutely loved our stay and would return back to Parituhu in a heartbeat if we should ever be blessed to visit Auckland area in the future. We met Helen & Lyndsay as strangers, and left as friends. We are truly blessed.

A great place to stay, especially for first nights in New Zealand. Helen and Lindsay are warm and eager to help. The home is in a great location. Very convenient to stay here and take the ferry into Auckland. Devonport is charming, not large but with enough places to eat, etc. The Auckland ferry is convenient and easy to navigate. Highly recommended!

My wife and I started our New Zealand trip with 3 perfect nights at Helen and Lyndsay's b&b. Devonport is a beautiful quiet place to stay...so close to Auckland centre (10 minute ferry ride). Our accommodation was very comfortable and clean and our hosts made us feel so at home. Hopefully we will be able to stay here again soon. Thank you Helen and Lyndsay!

Ok the tree was green when we were there but it was beautiful. The B&B was beautiful with beautiful people. Loved the decor. I could just sit there all day but there is so much to do. Everything is close by. One can take a bus and ferry from the airport. There is no need for a taxi or car. Perfect location with perfect people!

The house is gorgeous - right by the waterfront, and short walk to the ferry & Devonport village. The guest room is kept separate from the rest of the house which is nice. The bed was really comfortable, and lovely bathtub. Lots of little touches to make you feel at home. Lindsay & Helen are both really lovely - felt more like staying at a friend's house than a B&B. They have a great balance of giving you your privacy, but really welcoming & friendly as well. You would struggle to meet nicer people. Would definitely recommend, and I'm sure we'll be back too!

Our two day visit at Parituhu Bed and Breakfast was like a visit with friends. Lyndsay and Helen were so welcoming that we felt as if we had known them for years. Our bedroom was very comfortable and private, but we were welcome throughout their home. We were hunkered down waiting for the rain and wind from Cyclone Cook (which never happened), but we were delighted with so many far reaching conversations about Lyndsay and Helen's life and travels, as well as sharing our stories. Their house is a lovely Craftsman's design, breakfast was superb and the best part was a continuing dialog with our hosts. If you have not been to Devonport, you are in for a treat. It is a lovely location, great restaurants, shops and a short ferry ride to Auckland. It is perfect and we will certainly return. Thank you, Lyndsay and Helen, and we hope to see you in the U.S.!

Thank you Judy and Bob for such lovely comments. We really enjoyed having you stay with us at Parituhu. And yes the conversations were great. We reckon it makes the world a better place when we can all share our stories. And we were glad that "Cook" passed us by.!! Lets keep in touch .

We stayed 2 nights at the lovely home of Lyndsey and Helen, with a great location looking out to the bay. Our room was very comfortable and quiet, with modern furnishing, looking out onto the back garden. The house is cozy and filled with New Zealand art. The ferry to downtown or Waiheke is a 5 minute stroll, and downtown Devonport is full of shops and restaurants. We will be back. Helen and Lyndsey are a delightful couple.
