Even though we decided to leave one day earlier than expected, we had a warm welcome and a very nice staying. Barbara and Paul made us feel really well. The house is big and perfect with a beautiful garden. We fell in love with kiwis in general but THIS is really a place to get back one day and especially to have one of Paul's breakfast!!! Delicious!!! We had the chance to share the table with other guests from different countries and I think we were the noisiest table ever, but this is not negative. On the contrary! We enjoyed a lot sharing this moment with you and your guests. Thank you for everything. We will remember this place forever.

Hi Rosa!...Yes indeed we had a very happy bunch of travellers staying when you guys were here! It really is a great atmosphere with everyone chatting about at the table in the morning before you all go out to "play" !! So glad you liked our breakfasts..Barb and I love to prepare special fruits and goodies for our guests. Safe travels Paul and Barb

Barbara and Paul are the ultimate hosts, warm, friendly and knowledgeable. Beautifully maintained property, lovely quiet room with all the amenities and extras to make any stay comfortable, enjoyable and stress free. A true and genuine Kiwi experience.The property is very central and located a short drive from all the attractions. Not to be missed are the Keri Keri Farmers Market on Saturday (& Sunday?) morning and the Museum within the Treaty Grounds. We will be back!

Hi guys! Hey thanks so much for your lovely review. We really like to see people such as yourselves heading north to chill out from thier busy lives! Yes the Waitangi Treaty grounds and the Kerikeri market on Saturday mornings are a must see. Barb and I do look forward to seeing you again if you choose to come north and we can point you in the direction of other things to see and do in the bay of island and further north as well, Cheers and safe travels, P & B

We have got the chance to stay in the studio which is really wonderful , great equipment and a dream of a bathroom with an shower to walk in and super spacious. Lovely hosts with great support and perfect proposals what to do in the area. Highly recommended to make the flight to Cape Reinga with Salt air!! Wonderful prepared breakfast with a wide range of continental but also cooked offers.
This made our stay in New Zealand complete and we recommend a stay here at this B&B ! Great place to be !

Room Tip: Riverside studio is a great choice

Hi O and B.....thanks so much for your great review! Barb and I are so glad we could help in making your last days in NZ memorable. Yes the Cape Reinga flight / sandboarding etc is the ultimate way to end your trip! Hope you got to see the glow worm caves on the way back to Auckland. Safe travels back to Stuttgart!

Regards

Paul and Barb

Unique Property in an amazing setting with the hosts to match. We stayed for two nights for our Bay of Islands Cruise - also highly recommended. Wish we could have stayed longer and have added Morepork and its surroundings to our special list of places to revisit.
Our comfortable room and balcony had superb views over the nearby river and the distant hills.
We agree with all the views from other travellers who, like us, had the good fortune to meet Paul and Barbara and stay in their truly excellent accommodation.

Such a lovely review, Thank you! Yes we never tire of the view and are so pleased that we can share it with others from distant shores! Indeed the boat cruises are the most popular thing to do here in the Bay of Islands. Take care and safe travels, Paul and Barb.

We had a great room with a view and comfortable bed. had our own balcony as well. The hosts were just great and helped organize and suggested activities when the weather changed our plans. The breakfasts were excellent with everything you could think of and eggs made to order as well. This was a great place to stay and recommend it highly. ( I am really fussy) It was so clean and there was even a fresh baked good waiting for you each day
