We booked 2 nights here, for our final stay in NZ. So glad we did! The room was clean, quiet, wifi and tv in room, and very friendly owner.

The beaches and town are about 10 min drive - so everything is close by.

We booked our room from expedia, so breakfast was not included for us.

The only cons: uncomfy bed (we kept sinking into the middle), and lots of bugs in the room. The location of home is very tropical (lots of plants, trees, birds...), so you can't really avoid the bugs. We found ants and mosquitos in our room even though we kept the windows and doors closed...

We stayed here for two nights. Place was spic and span. Very friendly host having good knowledge about the area in and out. Breakfast was served with different cereals, breads, cheese and accompanied by a fruit platter a healthy breakfast indeed.
Room has all essential facilities - free wifi, kitchen with all appliances, no laundry but the host was kind enough to do the laundry for us.
A wonderful place to spend with scenic views and beautiful sounds of the birds nearby. Its a very quiet place took us time to adjust to the scary silence. But once we got used to it we felt totally at peace.

We spent 2 weeks in the North Island over Christmas 2013 and A Tranquil Place B&B was a real highlight. We had originally planned 4 nights but after one night we extended it an extra night...it is a fabulous place and the name truly says it all. It is set on hill side, surrounded by lush NZ flora with a view to the water below. It is extremely quiet and private with a lovely bedroom, ensuite and kitchenette...TV and wifi if you want it but..my recommendation is to stay "unplugged". It is immaculate and the host is very welcoming. Others have spoken of the breakfast and it is wonderful with fresh baked goodies, fruit salad, toast, yogurt, egg (if you want)....I am getting hungry just thinking of it again! There are many other features to delight you,from the private deck (great for reading) amongst the ferns to my favourite the skylight over the bed so you can see the stars and if you're lucky catch a falling star like we did ! I really recommend anyone going to the Bay of Islands to stay here...it is also well located being 5 minutes out of Russell and 5 minutes from the ferry to Pahia. Not many places I would go back to but this is one.....

Room Tip: No need... .you are the only guest......

We stayed at A Tranquil place for 3 nights. The room was spotless and comfortable. The service and breakfasts were both of the highest quality, and the grounds and view were absolutely stunning. A wonderful place to get away and relax - we came away feeling totally at peace and refreshed. I would recommend it to anyone.

Very peaceful and quiet place to think and rest. Great host who provides health breakfast and a very good knowledge of the area and places to visit. Real enjoyed my stay, the view of the water and various ferns very special.
