Sol Y Mar is quote simply the best house I have ever been in. The views from every room are stunning and the palm tree lined drive is like driving up to a palace. Leanne was very friendly and humble and couldn't do enough for us. It is 20 mins from Napier, so you need a car, but I would have happily driven an hour for a lookout or a cafe with a view like we had from the breakfast patio. Oh, and like most B&Bs, it has a Helipad. Check out the photos...

A large bedroom with view to ocean. Clean and large bathroom. The host worked from early but left a nice breakfast in the fridge. The panoramic view of the ocean was the big plus and there were animals to keep you entertained with pleasant conversation in the evening.

Stayed here for one night. Sol y Mar is a beautiful location, with lovely furnishings, and a gracious host. Our room was lovely, with expansive views over the sea - we saw a captivating fullmoon rise and golden sunrise both reflecting their light rippling over the darkness of the ocean. It was quiet, very comfy bed, beautiful bathroom, excellent breakfast included, and the host's pet Jack Russell dogs racing out to meet us were an unexpected welcoming party! There were also other unexpected extras - chocolate treats in the bedroom which were most appreciated. Sol y Mar was the best-value accommodation of our month-long travels around New Zealand. We stayed at B&Bs, hotels and motels - we will definitely stay here again.

The Sol Y Mar is a small B+B. The two problems with it are: 1) the bathroom facilities are a little awkward (they do not have en suite), and 2) without a GPS the B+B was difficult to locate. That said the bedroom was comfortable, and the B+B was clean, the breakfast was excellent, and the innkeeper was very congenial. Now that I can easily find it, I would be happy to stay there again.

The room is beautiful. The host, Leigh-Anne, is fabulous. The views of the sea are great. The breakfast was wonderful. We happened on this place by accident and like some accidents this one turned out perfect.
