This was my first trip to the island and I'm completely blown away by it's beauty and it's friendly locals. I stayed the night at the backpackers in Villa II and it was clean & tidy with lots of room and not a bad view. It's a short distance from the beach and the owner Robyn is really lovely and is as laid back and friendly as they come. I can't recommend the backpackers and the island enough. Thanks again!

Our nine day stay at the Medlands was magic. From the very first day, when Robyn & Malcolm greeted all 17 of us with a friendly smile, the service they provided was first class. Set in a farmland environment, the villas and the bunk rooms are well furnished and comfortable. The views are magnificent and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Various BBQ are available at various locations and the communal kitchen for the Bunk rooms was well equipped. Toilets and showers very clean and well maintained. The proximity to shopping, restaurants, Galleries, airport and services is a plus. Also the central location made travel easy to both the Northern and Southern end of the Island for hiking. Robyn also offered us a guided tour of local gardens and is a wealth of knowledge about the island, what to do, where o eat and good walks. We will always stay there when we travel to the Great Barrier. Raf Walking Club of Victoria

Robyn & Malcolm were wonderful hosts and create a wonderful relaxed atmosphere at the backpackers. The room I stayed in looked out over the ocean and was very relaxing. They were really great with giving pointer and where to go. I would recommend the backpackers to anyone who was looking for a chilled out stay on the island. Will definitely be going back for another visit.

Set on a hillside, in the bush with a luxuriant garden, native birds, ducks, chickens, just 10 a minute walk to the most amazing beach and coast. A communal kitchen/lounge and lots of outdoor furniture for eating (and lounging) outside. Loads of bodyboards provided for enjoying the waves. The hosts Robyn and Malcom are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. Simple, rustic, natural, friendly and absolutely tranquil. Amazing night stars. Really a beautiful place to be.

We visited as a family for a week and it was just perfect - we had all the backpackers rooms to ourselves which meant that the kitchen area was basically ours too. The location was under a 10min walk from Medlands beach - a beautiful walk may I say - and the surroundings were stunning. Green beauty all around! The accommodation was just right, we all had some privacy but shared room with family members which made it a lot of fun. The family who own the accommodation were also super friendly and welcoming, and took time out from their days to take us on walks and show us around. If I ever visit New Zealand again I would definitely want to go back to Great Barrier Island, and wouldn’t think twice about where to stay.
