We arrived into Auckland after the long journey from the UK. Graham collected us from the airport (showing infinite patience after our flight had been switched), and took us to the house. It was an oasis of calm, and after drawing breath, we enjoyed welcome fizz and nibbles on the terrace overlooking the bay. Others have commented on the stunning...

We were at the beach very early in the morning and got to watch a surfing competition before walking up to the lookout. The path in spots was muddy, but overall easy to get to the top if you have decent footwear and fitness. Take time for photos and go down to the beach. It was absolutely empty!

My husband and I stayed here while we were in town visiting his family. My father-in-law has a house down the street however, there was not room for us to stay with them so he arranged for us to stay here. The property is amazing and really speaks for itself. Viv and Graham really put a lot of work into...

We took a private tour and went to Piha lookout as well as travelled all the curvy roads to get to Piha beach and walk on the dark sanded beach. It was so beautiful to be up close and put our feet in the sand - be careful during the day because that sand gets much hotter than our normal...

Viv and Graham were the best of hosts. They organised evening meals at the local clubs of which they were members. Being able to share the view from their deck was amazing and the breakfasts which included homemade yogurt and bread as well as eggs from their own chooks were to die for. The rooms were great. We liked having...

Great hiking trails and beautiful beach all within a 10 minute drive. Actual guest accommodations were a bit unusual from our experience with B&B's but functioned quite well because of the private entrance, quiet sleeping quarters and bonus room with microwave. Views from balcony were spectacular. Hosts Graham and Viv were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I am allergic to dogs...

Graham and Viv knocked themselves out to accommodate us. Besides tidy, charming and comfortable rooms, the meals were outstanding, and Graham provided taxi service to assist with luggage and to enable one member to return home because of a family emergency. The view is stunning and the hosts were friendly, helpful and totally dedicated to servicing their guests. Do Not...

My wife and I had decided to do 2 days on the Hillary Trail and Piha looked like a logical overnight stop (between Whatipu and the train station in Swanson). Staying with Graham and Viv in their B&B was a great decision: Friendly, helpful and accommodating, we enjoyed foot baths, cold drinks, a wonderful dinner and a good breakfast to...

You simply couldn't ask for better hosts than Graham and Viv. They were full of local knowledge and great conversation! Incredible location!!! Mere minutes to Karekare and Piha Beach and very secluded. Plus they lets us compare Vegemite and Marmite!

Viv and Graham are the perfect hosts. We spent hours talking regarding lots of things! They have a wide knowledge of the area and suggested us many walks. They were so many kind and friendly. I have no words! Regarding the accommodation, Piha Ocean Lookout it is only 5' driving to Piha Beach and has amazing views. It is a...
