A good friend Found this Air B&B on line decided by location to give it a go.
Great choice. Hesitant about the drive as we were on bikes but all good.
we were the only ones in this night so very quiet and cosy.
All that we needed was there. Great music to choose from and so well stocked .
thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here and well recommended.
Just down the road from the best pub in NZ and the views from the house is stunning.

Room tip: all rooms are great. we both chose the upstairs attics.

Unique place, very cozy and comfortable house with dreamendous view on the ocean to see the sunrise... :-) lovely and very friendly hosts! Leanne and her man did suggest us many things and locations to visit for the northisland, like tourguides. There is the mountain Hikurangi near Tokomaru Bay, 20min by car and there is a nice walk to the hut of Mt. Hikurangi (4h), to go to the Top of the mountain you have to be a experienced hiker! Contact Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou before you start. In the backpacker there is a very nice kitchen and bathrooms too. Best backpacker ever :-)

Leanne and Angus were welcoming hosts. They settled us in, offered us advice and left us to explore. The set up is great with cabins, lofts and rooms plus clean and well equipped common areas. Awesome views too, thanks for the stay

Specially designed around the stunning sunrise of Tokomaru Bay, every room is facing the sun in the morning. You will not regret waking up early. Plus our hosts Leanne and her husband are absolutely delightful. We did not mind being stranded in paradise ;)

There has been a lot of hostels in New Zealand which I've said have been my favourite one yet, but this was possibly the cherry on the cake. I loved the town, the other guests and the hostel but it was owners Leanne and Angus which made this stay really special. It's well worth getting off the tourist routes in NZ to find little gems like this.
