Great views from our first floor apartment of Opua harbour. 10 min walk to general store that sold great coffee and fantastic pizzas. Great to hear the varied birdlife and Leah was an awesome host. Very nice and...

Clean and comfortable with beautiful views from the upper units. Our host Leah was more than helpful and generous with her time for 2 Canadian travelers. Her shared local knowledge ensured...

Our holiday plans went awry when my wife landed in hospital for three days. Leah from the Opua Motel was fantastic in rescheduling our prepaid accommodation so that we didn't miss out on the beautiful Bay of Islands.
