We enjoyed our stay in "Stranded in Paradise" very much. Its the perfect place to come and relaxe. The Backpacker is small, cosy, with a well equiped kitchen, awesome views, many good books and cds, a fire place and best of all 2 very friendly and helpful hosts! Angus and Leanne, thank you very much for the great stay and your help!
The owners (who are AMAZING) put a lot of work into making this place green and beautiful. The layout is awesome with cool lofted rooms and a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean. Really clean and beautiful facilities and a warm wood fire place. Definitely recommend it!
For me this is definately the best hostel on the northern island. Leanne and Angus are so nice, welcoming and caring hosts. The hostel is located on the hill and you ve an amazing view over tokomaru bay. The rooms are really cool and the hole house has lots of character and individual design. Our stay was only for one night but we d loved to stay longer and relax at that beautiful place. Jakob
really nice property with attention to detail in every single thing. Small facilities but really well equipped and full of games, books and magazines. Amazing views for the day of rain that we spent there.
Clean and charming. The house was like home away from home. We were a family visiting members on the East Coast and we were 5 and the accommodation was easy Leanne and Angus are top people. Great value; yummy pub meals 10 mins down the road. Definitely paradise we will be coming to stay there again.
