My husband and I have lived at the Captains Landing for the past year. A great location, beautiful sea views and a short walk to the village. It is an idyllic place to stay. Margaret could not have been a better host, such a lovely person.

Marg is a true first class hostess and the accommodations are spacious, luxurious and well located on the waterfront of Devonport, a very short walk to the ferry and the centre of the village. A true five star experience not to be missed!

We stayed at the Captains Landing for a total of four months, from October 2014 to the end of January 2015. We found the self catering accommodation to be very comfortable. We had a kitchen, living/dining room, two bedrooms and a large bathroom. We had easy and private access to a deck with good outdoor furniture and great view over Auckland Harbour. We had an off street parking space and could walk easily to all that Devonport has to offer. Margaret and Bo are extremely nice people and are very welcoming. Any minor problems were ironed out quickly

We had a perfect 2 day stay with Margaret at the Captain's Landing back in January before boarding our cruise ship in Auckland. The 3 room suite with an outdoor deck was immaculate, comfortable and had every amenity you could possibly want including homemade snacks and even a bottle of wine in the fridge. Our 2 breakfasts upstairs in Margaret's lovely dining room complete with a white tablecloth and silver serving pieces, included absolutely scrumptious fruit, muesli and yogurt then a hot entree - one day scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, the other a grilled cheese, bacon and tomato on toast. They were incredible - my mouth waters still thinking about them! My husband particularly enjoyed the music playing in the background while we ate. Margaret arranged for our transportation to the dock and could not have been more gracious and caring about us during our stay. Be sure to book a visit at The Captain's Landing - you will love it! Thanks Margaret!

We started our 3 month vacation in New Zealand and Australia on New Year's Eve in Devenport at Captain's Landing and thanks to Margret and Bo we had an excellent start into the New Year. We booked a table for dinner in Auckland in advance and the two took care of guiding us to the location and to ensure we finally made it there they had a glass of wine at the restaurant until we arrived - what a nice touch! We enjoyed the warm hospitality, lovely conversation at breakfast, the spacious, elegant rooms and the most remarkable 5 star breakfast in the upper floor with a stunning view. I loved the homemade Muesli - the best I ever had. As we left, Margret gave me the recipe an I surely will make it at home. After finishing our trip and experience a lot of different locations we still remember this place as one of the best accommodations throughout the whole time - thanks Margaret and Bo, we will surely come back some time!

We enjoyed three fabulous days during our stay at The Captain's Landing. This bed and breakfast is located on the beautiful North Shore area of Auckland, called Devonport, just a short 10 minute ferry ride from downtown, and then a five minute walk to the B&B. The Captain's Landing overlooks the water, and so you get a great view of all the activity, as well as the walkway on the water's edge. The accommodation is really comfortable and elegant with a well appointed bedroom, a spare room available to store your luggage, and a separate sitting room overlooking the deck, and then out to the water. Breakfasts were served upstairs in the main house diningroom which had an exquisite view of Auckland city and the surrounding beach areas. The best part however was the lovely breakfasts prepared by the gracious host, Margaret Ekman. Making use of organic local products where possible, the breakfast was just exquisitely prepared and served with Margaret providing us interesting stories and suggestions about Auckland, and how the B&B had evolved. The Captain's Landing is a higher end B&B which offers excellent value, a great hostess, and a good location with easy access to downtown. We would glad recommend this B&B, and next time we are in Auckland, would definitely stay there again. Keith T, North Vancouver, Canada

We knew as soon as we arrived on our 2 night stay at The Captains Landing it was going to be special as Margaret greeted us like one of the family. Margaret and Bo's B&B is situated on the ground floor level of their immaculate and stylish home and is actually a suite of rooms. We loved the second bedroom to enable us to use as a dressing room so as not to clutter the main bedroom with suitcases. The living room has a good sized fridge and small ice compartment ( disguised as a cabinet) where a chilled bottle of wine awaited us ( how we appreciated that after our journey) We sat outside on the decking with the warm evening sea breeze and relaxed immediately! Wow! We can't think of a single item which isn't supplied at Captains Landing, the attention to detail delighted us. There are DVDs, books, magazines, refreshments, fresh milk, chilled water, excellent toiletries, wonderful pieces of furniture, fine bedding and a very comfortable bed. We were asked what time we wanted breakfast ( Margaret is such an accommodating hostess so if you have a very early start the same breakfast is served regardless of time) We enjoyed the best continental breakfast we have ever had ( also available scrambled eggs and smoked salmon) whilst looking out at the most fantastic views of the sea overlooking Auckland city through the floor to ceiling windows. We enjoyed the homemade muesli, seasonal fruits, croissants, pastries, toast and marmalade. Coffee and tea served in silver pots and crisp linen napkins and tablecloth. Beautiful And stylish presentation is something Margaret obviously excels at and it is something we miss so much when staying at larger hotels, which can be so impersonal and clinical. Don't want to write too much about all the little finishing touches as would possibly spoil the lovely surprise for future guests. Great location - easy five to ten minute walk to catch the Ferry to the city and back and Devonport shopping also an easy stroll. Lots of smaller shops ( many close at 4pm though) and many places to eat. We were lucky to have a hire car so on our second evening we drove around the nearby area and across to the beach on the other side of town. We were so glad we decided to spend our few days in Devonport and not in Auckland CBD area for our two night stay. This B&B should certainly be number one in the ratings and isn't probably only because it's a small business ( one couple per stay) so the trip advisers reviews aren't as frequent. Can't recommend it highly enough and so look forward to returning again. Many thanks Margaret for a truly wonderful stay.

We stayed at the Captain's Landing for the first two nights of our honeymoon. After over 30 hours of travelling from the UK, we arrived to find that Margaret and Bo had made a special effort to ensure that our room was ready early so that we could relax as soon as we got there. The accommodation was beautiful and Margaret and Bo were perfect hosts - always there to help but giving us the privacy that was so important. Margaret's breakfasts are honestly out of this world - amazing homemade muesli and cinnamon bread and delicious cooked mains, all served in Margaret and Bo's beautiful living room upstairs with views of the boats sailing by. The accommodation was ideally situation - only 5 mins walk from the Devonport Ferry terminal (the ferry itself only takes 10 mins to reach central Auckland). It was the perfect way to start our honeymoon, relax and get over our jetlag! We really cannot recommend the Captain's Landing highly enough.

Staying at this b&b was the best possible finish before leaving NZ after 6 weeks. The location is excellent. Devonport is very nice with excellent views on the city and the ferry connection are very good. Margaret prepares an awesome breakfast!!! Plenty of rooms with everything you can possibly need.Dip and crackers were a nice touch. Margaret and Bo are very nice and charming hosts. I think if you are looking for a b&b in that area 'The Captain's Landing' is the place to be. Thanks Margaret and Bo
