Set in beautiful countryside on the edge of Opotiki this beautiful and very stylish B&B is a wonderful location to explore Whakatane and Ohope. We have never visited this area before and found the Kowhai rest to be an excellent base for exploring the region.
The rooms are absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. Our hosts Vicky and Kevin are the most friendly and charming people that we have ever had the pleasure to meet. They catered for our every need and much much more.
I cannot recommend this wonderful place enough. If you are in this area you need to come and stay at the Kowhai Rest. This is the kind of place that makes New Zealand so great
Our host made us shortbread and cooklies and the breakfast was beautiful and very plentiful. Next time we are in this region we will definitely try and book this wonderful place again
Thank you Vicky and Jevin for your incredible hospitality
Steve, Debbie, Cavin and Jenny
