What a fabulous place to stay! Helen’s B&B should be Bed, Breakfast and Beach as it is so close to the soft sand of Waikanae Beach being less than a minutes’ walk from the waters of the Tasman Sea.

The swimming is good as well.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and at ease, nothing was too much trouble from the décor in the bedroom through to the comfy bed and crisp cotton sheets. We had our own lounge and balcony overlooking the bay and at night we could see Mount Taranaki across the water with the moon and stars reflecting on the surface of the water.
The breakfasts were first class and as much as you could eat – cereals and fruit with yoghurt and fresh berries followed by toast and or croissants with homemade preserves and to really indulge – a full cooked breakfast; too much for us though.There are three guest rooms – two doubles and a twin which could be used as a family room and would be a great place to take behaved kids that could spend the day on the beach or in the surf

Helen is a first-class hostess even offering to do some washing while she was doing her own and always ready to offer suggestions as to where to eat or what to do. We will not hesitate to refer her and recommend her to friends and fellow travellers and will certainly stay again if we are in the area. .

Room Tip: Good for couples or families with kids.
