Host was very welcoming. Offered a kind gesture for a situation that was out if her control.
If you want a roomy, nicely furnished, bright apartment with all facilities and top class views from your verandah over the Bay and great hosts then this is it. The bathroom and kitchen are a bit dated but clean and complete. It was a magic place to stay for our final days in NZ
Everything! The Bay of island by itself is a wonder - blue emerald turquoise waters with plenty of sea life (saw killer whales, whales and dolphins in a same trip!). The stay at the retreat gave it extra points: amazing hosts, a cabin with a view, clean nice facilities and quiet! You live like Robinson Crusoe but with all the proper equipment. Love it and will definitely come back!
Too short a stay lol
Location, accommodation, staff
Everything I needed was right at hand. Bed was comfortable and kitchen was very serviceable. But I especially enjoyed the deck and the view across the bay. Big windows let in lots of light, making the most of the views. Easy access into town, but in a more verdant setting than the downtown places. Great deal for the price.
