“Wonderful quiet and familiar place”

We loved to stay a this place close to the bay and the Shakespeare National park. Our host was very polite and helping. She fixed the breakfast on the porch with the things we like as fresh fruits and cereals, toast and eggs. We had two private bedrooms, a big bath, a kitchen area with TV and an extra area on the porch.

“fantastic hospitality”

I enjoyed every moment of staying at Okoromai Bed and Breakfast: Very friendly hosts Janis and Peter, excellent location close to nature and just a ferry ride away from Auckland CBD, a beautiful room with a private bathroom and terrace and last but not least a great breakfast including a very nice conversation with the hosts. Whenever I will be back in the Auckland area I will stay here again.

“Exceptional kindness”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We spent a week in this spacious comfortable suite of rooms. Lovely double room with patio windows opening onto balcony. Pretty views of Shakespeare park and the bay.

Delightful living room with kettle, microwave, fridge and beverage supply. Freshly picked peaches just appeared from nowhere. Dining table, loungers and tv too.

Bathroom so beautifully spacious spotless and stylish. Self contained suite. Perfect.

Breakfast always enjoyable with piping fresh coffee.

But the warmth of the welcome is what stands out. Janis is unique. Nothing was too much trouble. I had a cold; she would put a menthol candle out for me. Lemon and ginger tea provided instantly.

There was the deepest kindness shown ..way beyond what one might expect. We left in the very early morning for our flight and Janis was there to help us depart. I didn't want to leave.

“A jewel in Okoromai's Crown”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We cannot thank Janice and Peter enough for their abundant hospitality when we stayed with them this February. Janice welcomed us as though we were family with a big hug at the door before showing us to very well appointed rooms with a private kitchen and bathroom. We loved how she shared breakfast with us on our first morning telling us about her life but equally very interested to hear about ours, Nothing was any trouble whatsoever to Janice and Peter and I would most certainly recommend a stay here as a base to explore Auckland and the surrounding areas. First class!!

“A B&B with a difference”
Reviewed 23 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

We booked Okoromai principally because we wanted to visit Tiritiri Matangi island which Janice arranged for us with absolute efficiency. This is a very comfortable and different B&B. Plenty of room, every facility you could want and a great location. Janice and Peter are such a friendly, helpful couple; they made our visit a delight and we enjoyed swapping stories with Janice and meeting Chucky - a well dressed shop mannequin! It's quirky, it's fun and it's quite special.

Thank you Rob for choosing our Bed & Breakfast when you visited our country and your wonderful review.
I am glad that you enjoyed your time with us. Chucky is still enjoying meeting all the guests as well!
Yes Tiritiri Matangi Island is a must see especially as it is only a short journey by ferry from Gulf Harbour Marina which is just 5k down the road.
We do hope your return to New Zealand in the future.
Kind regards, Janis and Peter
