We had an amazing time staying with Melissa. The view was beautiful, the food was great and we went on a lovely walk through the kiwi reserve. Thank you for having us!!

What a magical place, Melissa is a great host and their property is just perfect. Pictures doesnt do it justice, definitely coming back.

The Easter weekend was predicted to be wet and stormy but that certainly didn't turn out to be the case. The weather was great and on top of that the Airbnb at Bream Head with Melissa and Peter could not have been any better. This was by far our best Airbnb experience and our hosts made us feel more like friends than guests. They took time to explain the best hikes in the region, told us all about the scenic reserve in which they live (in which there are many Kiwis) and even provided us with wetsuits and bodyboards so we could hit the beach in style. The accomodation was immaculate with excellent cooking facilities and the view from the property is as good as you could get. To top it off there is even an outdoor hot-tub (made from an old wine barrel) from where you can relax and listen to the sounds of the nearby Kiwis. 10 out of 10 for these guys :-)

Melissa offers a full basement suite which is private for the guests. There is good wi fi service. She supplies a washing machine, and also bread, milk, and coffee supplies. There is a microwave and bar fridge in the space. A large flat screen tv is in the living room and there are two private bedrooms as well. Outside you can use the barbecue for cooking.

Absolutely stunning views. Close to a scenic private beach. Boggie board waves or sand dunes. Quiet relaxing and very peaceful. Gracious hosts. Wished we booked a whole week. Hear the owls and kiwis at night while you sit in a hot tub (a converted wine barrel) watching the stars. Got to eat the snapper fish fillets my son and I caught right off the bay with Peter our host in his boat. Will come back and stay longer I am sure.
