Thank you Bill and Marilyn for sharing your piece of New Zealand paradise with us. We have stayed at this gorgeous property several times now and every one of these visits have been just wonderful. Whether soaking up the sun on the deck, strolling through the organic orchid with Maia the dog and fat happy chickens around your feet or exploring the beautiful coastline, Tikapa Moana provides the perfect setting for peaceful relaxtion. Bill and Marilyn are truely the most welcoming and accomodating of hosts, who manage to perfectly balance attentiveness to your needs whilst maintaining your a sense of privacy. When you stay here you are treated as friends. We will definatly be back!!!

We had a wonderful long weekend stay at the gorgeous self contained apartment, our girls loved playing with Maya the dog, collecting eggs and feeding the hens, swimming and just wandering through the orchard. Everything is set up perfectly and with love for detail we felt right at home. Thanks BIll and Marylin for a great stay and a wonderful dinner! Gracias por todo, Danke für alles! Until the next!

What a wonderful experience. You don’t "visit" the "B&B"; you are received in Bill and Marilyn's home! But you at the very same time also have all the privacy and quiet you could ever hope for.

I am not a romantic (my wife can testify to this), but this was just what we needed. I don’t know who to thank most: my wife, who found Tikapa Moana Eco Spa Retreat or Bill and Marilyn who provided the experience. Well, let's say it was a deal made in heaven!

Thank you!

To Marilyn & Bill - WOW! You have a fantastic place, set in idyllic and very peaceful surroundings. We took a walk through the awesome fruit trees with a very helpful Maya! The rammed earth unit was amazing to stay in - with only a short stroll to the most relaxing and gorgeous pool we have ever had the pleasure of using! Our late night soak in the spa under the moonlight, with peeks of the stars was truely fabulous! For dessert & breakfast we enjoyed a wonderful fresh fruit salad, picked fresh from the bountiful orchard, very yummy! Thank you very much for our stay, we will be back!!!

This was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Bill and Marilyn - wow. Anyone who hasn't had watsu - try it. i've never felt so relaxed in my life. and it's very rare i feel well but watsu restored that. The spa and the masage were bliss, too. loved the beach walks and the rammed earth apartment. And i've been inspired to get my own vege and fruit growing. It was lovely being as private or communal as you liked with meals and evenings. so glad i took some time off the treadmill and experienced life the way it could be lived.

Wow...this is a little treasure:

Marilyn and Bill are the most incredible hosts with a real health and wellness awareness and make you so welcome. They have the most incredible services available to "restore the mind, body and spirit". Their beautifully designed warm chemical free Watsu therapy pool with adjacent massage room and sauna will rejuvinate you a Watsu session will float you off to heaven.

The smell of the sea and beautiful warmth walking through the sub-tropical orchard picking fruit and gathering your own organic vegetables. Gathering free range eggs with the company of their beautiful dog Maya who is ever so pleased to be in your company.

This place should definitely be included in you itinerary and just a hop, skip and a jump from Auckland.

Thi is a real gem!

Billand Marilyn have created a lovely homestay on their organic orchard. We stayed in the mud brick barn room which was a georgous/cute double studio room with lovely linen - kitchenette etc... Enjoyed soaking in their fabulous spa pool & sauna and received a wonderful massage from Marilyn. The indoor pool was not quite finihsed at the time, but it looked very nice and will entice me back to stay some time.

Well done Marilyn and Bill - you've created a wonderful low key, sanctuary-spa on your organic orchard,,, best wishes
