“nice enough,..but”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

We stayed in the garden room. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom large and modern. The hosts were friendly enough but we found the breakfast was inadequate and asked them not to provide it. There were a number of very large cobwebs in the unit which was a bit disconcerting, but the comfortable bed made up for that. The location is less than ideal, being near the intersection of 2 major roads and a roundabout. It was all very quaint but not as I imagined it to be from the website photos. Spa was also out of order.

The main house is stylish and the garden building with the two self contained suites looks like a charming yurt.
We spent a night in the self contained garden view accommodation.
Perfect cleanliness, very good bed and bathroom. All we needed for breakfast was in the kitchenette.
There are many photos posted on their website http://www.kaiparahouse.co.nz. They give a very good idea of this B&B.
The hosts are young and adorable. They are helpful and give guests plenty of information regarding activities, restaurants, etc.
The only real problem is related to the location of this B&B. It is situated along a main road just at the crossing with another road at a roundabout. Just have a look at their mail address and you'll see it is self explanatory. All night we heard trucks braking just before the roundabout and also those leaving the roundabout, accelerating and shifting gears. Very noisy indeed.
There is no wifi connection, but that is just a minor detail.
This noise issue is a real pity because all the rest is fine.
