Moon Shadow B & B... what a wonderful find! We were looking for somewhere special to spend our anniversary getaway and this place does "special" in spades. Beat and Gerry were the perfect hosts and their personal taste and style is on show throughout the appartment, which is luxuriously decorated and surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens. There is a huge deck on which to relax and enjoy the superb view of the bay, but our hosts' attention to detail, advice and help on dinners and activities and warm hospitality gave our stay the "wow" factor. Thank you Gerry and Beat for the little things we didn't expect.....the flowers and chocolates and lovely personalised notes on our pillows at night.....the superb hand-made croissants on our breakfast table in the mornings and the cheery smiles and conversation that were on show every time we spoke. Exceptional and memorable.
We can’t begin to express enough gratitude to Beat & Gerry, owners of Moonshadow, for making the start of our honeymoon in New Zealand so magnificent. The location where Moonshadow is situated is beyond description... you open up a large wall of windows that go from the floor to the ceiling looking out on the most spectacular view of the bay of islands. They spared no expense whatsoever in making the accommodations beyond comfortable for the most discerning of clients. They thought of every single detail right down to a Dyson fan in the beautiful bedroom along with motion activated night lights and a fully functional kitchenette. The furnishings are beautiful, very new and show no wear whatsoever and extremely tasteful. Beat & Gerry are two of the kindest and most professional hosts we’ve encountered in our worldly travels in a BnB such as theirs. Be prepared to be lavished upon every morning for your private breakfast that’s beyond description. They go to the market every day to pick up the freshness of ingredients ready and available to satisfy every type pallet.......the breakfast is comparable to a 5 star restaurant.
If you’re looking for a wonderful experience that you’ll never forget, Moonshadow is the place to stay. It was such a great experience that we’re already looking at our calendars trying to figure out when we can go back to stay at Moonshadow for a longer visit. If the scale of satisfaction is 1-10, they deserve a 15+.
With much gratitude, we say “Thank You!” for making our stay with you an experience of a lifetime!
The view across the bay is beautiful. The accommodation is sumptuous and gorgeously appointed. The breakfast served is lovely. But the real luxury is created by the wonderful hosts - they were so helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay memorable and a pleasure from beginning to end. I can’t recommend Moon Shadow high enough.
