Excellent B and B with spectacular views. We stayed with our adult daughter and the extra bed for her was extremely comfortable! Convenient to nearby towns and Neil's recommended trails was a highlight of our trip. Will definitely return here on our future visits to NZ from the states!!

As others have mentioned, the views from the Coromandel room are spectacular with 180 degree views from atop a cliff over the ocean and Hatfields Beach. The room is very large and spacious... More

We stayed in this B&B twice in quick succession and, following our first visit, had no hesitation whatsoever in returning. Neil and Makiko could not have been more accommodating and Makiko even went out of her way to pick us up in Orewa after dinner one evening. The views from our room were outstanding and to fall asleep with the... More

The welcome is warm and genuine. Location peaceful with beautiful sea views. Our bedroom and bathroom were very spacious with our own private conservatory and deck. A lovely continental breakfast and good nights sleep. Would recommend this as an ideal place to stop over to or from the Northland.
