Lovely stop over. Friendly and helpful owner. Slightly dated decor but perfectly comfortable. No view though- and most of the activities we wanted were a reasonable drive from the guest house. Continental breakfast was simple but fresh. Cooked options were limited. We did not

Thank you for your comments Gillian. The property is 12 years old so new paint is on the agenda and we are constantly making updates/improvements to keep modern. We are about to undertake some extensions which will provide us with a new modern luxury suite accommodating up to 4 guests. Our guests generally love the view over our acre and a half of landscaped native gardens leading down to the lagoon. We respect guests privacy whilst staying and only service rooms on request. We used to ask every single guest if they would like this to be done and prior to yourselves had had two lots of guests say 'yes' in 3 years. However, I do apologise for not specifically asking you & did service both rooms for you on your second day. Our continental breakfast includes fresh fruit, homemade muesli, yogurt, local jams, croissants & toast plus charcuterie, nuts & dried fruit and we offer a cooked option which changes daily and is usually well received. We trust that you had an enjoyable trip home and your daughter enjoys her little car.

Lovely to have you both stay and enjoy Accent House. Yes Mapua is a pretty cool place. Being just 15mins walk from the wharf puts us in a prime location. Hope to have you stay again one day. Kind Regards Sharon & John
