This was a wonderful place to spend a honeymoon and Christmas with stunning views over the Coromandel coast. We spent a very relaxing week being taken care of by the owner Jill. Eating her fantastic cooking in the gazebo overlooking the sea is an experience we wont forget

Room Tip: A great place for a relaxing getaway.

Jill has created this calm and restful haven from the craziness of the world. The views are fantastic and the rooms are very comfortable. We loved sitting on the balconies and just chilling. The breakfasts were lovely and the dining room is just perfectly located.
I highly recommend the place.

Kaeppelis is everything it says on the website and more. Accommodation, scenery and Jill, our host, were excellent. Jill was always forthcoming with information and on hand when needed . We opted to have her evening meals on two nights and they couldn't be faulted. Sitting eating a lovely meal, pleasant chat under a gazebo looking out to sea, what more could you want. Kaeppelis has it all.

Room Tip: Kaiwanga Room is perfect. Even on a rainy day the view is still there but, on a good day with the sun shining, it woulld be hard to beat.

As someone else has previously said, Kaeppeli's was difficult to find and once we got there we were quite taken aback by how tired the place looked and we felt that it was in desperate need of some TLC. For the money we paid, it was disappointing and now in the light of our experience with other b &b's it was downright expensive and certainly not good value for money.

The other comment to make is that the web pictures are misleading. The picture of the gazebo, where you have breakfast, leads you to think of really glossy surrounding, but again it was in much need of repair and a coat of varnish.

We stayed for the 3 days we had booked. Jill was a pleasant and present host, joining in easily at breakfast and the one supper he had there. The house is high up a longish track and the views are spectacular. We had booked one of the two ground-floor guest rooms in the house. On arrival, we were a bit disappointed with ours: it was spacious enough, with a sitting-room area beside the bedroom area, and there was a bath; however, it was quite dark and had no views at all, apart from the drive, where the cars were parked. The saving grace was an elevated balcony up a short, external flight of steps, with spell-binding, panoramic views, for our exclusive use. That first evening, the sun was shining and we were on a level with a Tui bird on a branch just feet away, singing its distinctive (at times, bell-like) song. We felt enchanted. Unfortunately, due to the weather, that was the first and last time we were able to use this balcony and being restricted to our room felt dismal.

The other room, however, which we saw during change-over day, was a much more attractive room, with magnificent views and sliding patio doors and plenty of light. It would have been a delightful room, even in the rain.

Finally, although there are good beaches nearby, the location of this B&B is quite remote, with a 20 minute drive into Whitianga, the nearest place to eat. In retrospect, we feel a location south of Whitianga would have been better.

Room Tip: Get the room in the house with the patio doors and the views across the bay
