From the initial booking enquiry, it was clear that Mr & Mrs B were thinking outside the square and that they were prepared to go out of their way to ensure our requirements were met and exceeded. We were two friends having a weekend getaway so our preference was for accommodation that had separate beds instead of the kingsize bed on offer in the yurts. Mr & Mrs B allowed us to stay in the larger Yoga Yurt and put in single mattresses to accommodate our request. The daytime and evening views across the bay and out to Auckland were stunning. The experience of staying in a Yurt was most pleasurable! Put aside any reservations you may have about the comfort and warmth of the Yurts as there is no issue here. We stayed late April, as the season moves into autumn, so we did get heavy overnight rain on one of the nights, but we remained cosy and snug thanks to the quality of the bedding and insulation. Mrs B is a SUPERWOMAN as she did the majority of the hosting on her own while Mr B was out of town for some of our stay and yet she still offered the pick up mini van service from the ferry and dropped us off to our places of interest. I highly recommend fitting in a private yoga session with Mel - she's an amazing teacher who will customise your session according to your abilities and health needs. We did our session in the morning which set us up with the energy needed to spend the rest of the day exploring the island. To sum up, NO NEGATIVES. Cleanliness, Amenities, Views, Hosting, Service, Breakfasts - ALL SUPREME! Actually, I do have a fault to report... the whole setting and experience is just TOO romantic! I HAVE to bring along my husband next time!
