“とにかく心地よい素敵な滞在です。 Really comfortable stay”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

お部屋の居心地も、窓からの風景も、お料理も、そして何といってもクリスとテアラご夫妻の温かい自然なおもてなし、そしてとにかくチャーミングなリリィ!、すべてが素晴らしくって最高の滞在でした。トラブルが生じた際にも、実に親身に対応してくださり、とても助かりました。

また島全体における本来の自然の姿・空気に触れる体験は、身も心も洗われるような清々しさ、神々しささえ感じられました。
特に自然の中に沸いている温泉は、秘湯気分も味わえてお気に入りです。
自家発電のため、夜は早々に消灯しますが、満点の星空は圧巻です。

A comfortable room, scenery from a window, lovely cuisine, a hearty welcome by Chris and Teara, and then very charming Lili ! All was the best fantastically!
In case of trouble, I was given very kind support by them.

In the island, we can see and enjoy the original state of nature. Particularly, the hot spring of nature boiled in the river is excellent !!
For home power generation, people in the island turn off the light early at night. Instead, I am deeply impressed with the star‐studded sky !

Room Tip: 全てのお部屋において、清潔で心地よく滞在を楽しめます。窓からの風景は、海側(遠くに望む)と山側がありますが、お部屋の広さ(宿泊人数)によって、自ずとどちらかに決まると思います。 In all roo...

Great Barrier Island is fabulously beautiful but as a destination everything is pretty basic and remote. Mount St. Paul Estate is about the least basic as it gets and a very comfortable and welcoming oasis. Don't expect top end luxury but do expect a very well appointed, clean and well kept establishment, with really excellent meals. It is run by Teara and Chris who are both very helpful. It is fairly near Claris airport so one does get the noise from light aircraft all day long. Definitely a good choice for Great Barrier Island.

Room Tip: Really liked the corner room (on the right when looking at the front from the outside). Lovely balco...

When my parents (visiting from Germany) and I returned from our trip to GBI and the 4 days- / 3-nights-stay at Teara's and Chris' respectively, there was only one question to ask ourselves to assess the whole experience -- Would we book it again -- easy, YES, without a doubt, first choice! Awesome place in a superb location, welcoming and caring hosts, great food / dinners prepared by chef Teara herself and a lovely, cute dog (called Lilly). We had a great time, thanks guys!!!

As part of Travel TV program show, our director stayed there for one night while the rest of crew members indulged our taste buds at dinner time only.

Hosts Chris and Teara both of them know how to entertain and look after patrons well.

We felt truly valued.

The dinner we enjoyed were handmade and made according to our very short notice request.

It was shame that we could not have been there as a purely private trip.

The only bottleneck is that after you leave the property, you will have a massive regret of having to leave.

I wish to return to the estate with my wife sometime in the future.

Thank you Chris and Teara, thanks to your cooperation, our director has happily confirmed that she was able to take good photos that Japanese audience will surely enjoy!

On our trip from the USA we wanted a place we could rest and enjoy for a few days to get acclimated from flying. What a great choice we made! Chris and Teara were the best! Chris even rented a car for us so we could explore the island and that we did! Seeing all the other places we could have stayed, so thankful we chose Mount St. Paul Estate! Our room was very comfortable with a great view! The food that Teara prepared was out of this world!! They added so much to our trip and that we are grateful! The only place to stay! We wish you both the best!

The Mount St. Paul Estate has new hosts. A charming young couple called Chris and Teara who went out of their way to do everything they could to make our stay memorable in every way. The food was delicious and the service - well I have never experienced anything like it anywhere else.
Could not rate this lovely home (bed and breakfast does not begin to describe it) any more highly if I tried.

Hi Again,
Gosh, it was great to have you and your son as our first guests! How nice was it to host a woman who owned and operated her own boutique hotel for many years, your advice was much appreciated.
Thank you so much,
Teara

We at last managed to have a weekend away (just 2 of us, no kids) and what a great choice we made! Mount St. Paul Estate is such a special place but the hosts have made it even more special. Thank you Hilary & Peter for being so helpful and organising all the little (and bigger) things for us. Your chef is superb - she made us some exquisite meals despite the tricky dietary restrictions. The room was awesome and so was the view. I can't remember when we slept so well. We are already thinking about coming back!
