We felt right at home at Te Puna Wai. From the moment we met Richard and James we felt so comfortable. They were terrific hosts who were so helpful in recommending places for us the see and eat. They were so accommodating with our dietary restrictions and made the most elegant and tasty breakfast table. Our room-the top floor- was stunning. the view overlooking the bay below was just breathtaking. We enjoyed watching the sailboats zip across the bay. The sunsets were also so amazing! The bed was super comfortable and I enjoyed soaking in the lovely club foot tub. What else can I say-this place had it all! We loved it so much we went back and stayed a few more nights before flying home.
