Our family (including our 16 year old teenage daughter) stayed at Within the Bays in December, 2016 for two nights. Of all of the accommodations we stayed at in New Zealand, this was by far our favorite and most memorable. The owners, Hans and Annemarie are fascinating, very personable, fun folks that went out of their way to make us feel completely comfortable and welcome. Hans shared his homemade beer and jams and Annemarie shared her incredible talents on the spinning wheel. Annemarie is an outstanding cook and made the most delicious breakfasts for us (homemade breads - yum!). We felt so fortunate to have found this place and will definitely stay at Within the Bays when we return to New Zealand.
