“Highlight of my NZ experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

I stumbled upon this lovely B&B while traveling solo and what a score. Came for one night and had to stay two. The accommodation is impeccable. The views stunning. The hosts, John and Marie make you feel like welcome family at the Holidays! I went out to check the crayfish traps in the am with John, had a lovely breakfast waiting upon return from Marie. Kayaked and hiked in the afternoon, ate luscious crayfish and took in a gorgeous sunset. I will definitely come back here with my husband…it's not right to not share…or to not do this all over again!

Room Tip: I took the sunny sea view just because!

Incredible beach front location with spectacular views. This B&B is the best every. A+ on cleanliness, linen, layout, and food. Private if you need the privacy, but the hosts are great people, helpful, interesting a very knowledge about the area.
Great breakfast way beyond our expectations.
Thanks to our Hosts Marie and John - well done.
We highly recommend this B&B you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great.

We can recommend this B&B as agreat place to stay. We have travelled to many countries around the world and stayed in many B&Bs,and this is one of the best. The hosts were very welcoming and the locationis almost to good to believe. Whether you just want a relaxing weekend break or are touring New Zealand this is a great place to stay.
Many Thanks for a great stay

If you need some time away for a bit of R&R this is the place.We have never come across such a charming and relaxing place with the hosts being so friendly and helpful which made our stay so enjoyable.Thankyou John and Marie for those little extra's you did for us. You made our weekend. Can't wait to come back. See you in september.(and a big thankyou for the lovely meal we had, sitting on your deck watching the sunset, just beautiful.)

My wife and I spent a very relaxing 4 days with John & Marie, sharing their home and garden, whilst staying in their bed and breakfast apartment. The location was idyllic, barely a stones throw from the beach. The accommodation was perfect in every way. Eating outside on the patio whilst watching the sun set over the sea, was stunning. Marie and John could not have made us more welcome. We arrived as strangers and after only 4 nights we departed feeling like lifelong friends.
It is places and people like this which make a holiday truly memorable.

A great place to stay in Mahia. It’s a beautiful spot and Marie and John are lovely hosts. Great views of the sea and beach. Rooms were clean and nicely appointed.
It was just the break we needed. We were offered fresh caught crayfish as an evening snack. In the morning we went out on the boat to check the crayfish pots.
Mahia is a very small town so there is not a lot of food options in the area, luckily Marie can provide a nice home cooked meal if requested in advance.

My husband and I stayed with John and Marie for a night and even though it was some time ago we still remember the amazing hospitality and wonderful experience we had there , we stumbled across it by accident and were offered an evening meal of freshly caught crayfish all prepared for us and Marie's wonderful home baked dessert as we sipped cold wine overlooking the astonishingly beautiful view. John entertained us with some great tales and invited my husband to go out with him the next morning to pull up his cray pots, which he did and loved. Marie and John made us feel so welcome we were sad to only have had time for 1 night but will be back as still reflect fondly on the best B&B we have ever been at please don't change anything!
