An exceptional B & B in Oamaru. A 10 minute walk into town, from a lovely charming old villa, yet modernised and very comfortable. Liz and Dave have spent much time (and money) on preserving the charm of this house, and are very attentive and helpful hosts. Gave good advice on destinations to go to in the Waitaki area, and provided an excellent breakfast. Very highly recommended. We have no connection with Oasis on Orwell, except as satisfied customers.

Dave & Liz are great hosts. The B&B is beautifully furnished and comfortable rooms. We had a beautiful view over the bay. The breakfast was 5 star. Great attention to detail. We were given great helpful tips on what to see on our way to Oamaru, how to get the best experience when viewing the blue penguins, and what was best to see when we left Oamaru. This is a true B&B!

We had a wonderful time here. A little afternoon tea treat upon arrival. Some great tips on places and times to visit. Comfy bed and superb choice and quality of breakfast. The location is ideal as only a 2 min drive back in into town.

From the street, this BnB looks like a modest cottage. Step inside and be wowed! Dave & Liz are such gracious hosts and are a wealth of info on the local area. The breakfast was amazing; food to last the entire day! We appreciated the treats upon our arrival too. Our Master Bedroom suite included all the amenities & the bed was very comfy! Dave lined us up for the penguin parade at dusk and suggested a visit to the wallaby refuge on our way north. These were two of our favorite highlights for our entire trip! Thanks Dave & Liz from Debra & John

We went here because of the rating and reviews on trip advisor and we were not let down. Lovely room, good location and absolutely brilliant hosts. The knowledge and guidance of the local area and the breakfasts were second to none. If you're looking to stay in Omaru look no further. Superb!!
