The view is more beautiful than the picture and Annemarie and Hans were the perfect hosts. They shared their home, wine, homemade beer and knowledge of Whitianga and New Zealand with us. Since this was our first trip to New Zealand, we appreciated their recommendations for restaurants and activities which were perfect. They recommended Lost Springs Spa and called for an appointment for us. It was one of the highlights of our trip. Their breakfast was wonderful. We choose freshly baked croissants and homemade preserves with fruit from the menu. It's a specialty of the house and the food was excellent. The room was very clean and supplied with all the travel necessities and extras you would find in an expensive hotel. Bed was comfortable and location was quiet. We were treated like guests but felt like family when we left. Wonderful experience!
