We were made to feel extremely welcome upon arrival, such a nice way to round off a short trip away on the North Island. The views from the house are spectacular, the room is spacious and feels completely separate. Lorraine even let us cook a couple of meals before leaving, letting us have free reign over the kitchen. The herbs in the garden are a special touch and are still flavouring our Jerseys!!! Thank you so much.

I had a really lovely stay. Lorraine was welcoming and generous. I felt very much at home and enjoyed my room, lounge and balcony that looked out to sea. It was a great space to relax in. An added bonus was the beach being so close for a morning walk, and meeting such a lovely host. Thank you!

We very much enjoyed our stay at Lorraine's place (near Opotiki), especially the chance to talk with her and her partner over breakfast. The accommodation itself was comfortable and in a scenic hillside location above the Bay of Plenty. We're glad we stopped here on way to East Cape. (For some reason Air B&B did not solicit our review until three weeks after our visit. Because we have stayed at a dozen or more places since then, my recollection of some details is now a little foggy, but I do recall well our general impression that this is one of the best places we stayed in terms of quality of interaction with our host. For example, my wife Marilyn mentioned a mandarin tree on her property, and Lorraine then went out and plucked a branch from the tree, giving us a bunch of mandarins we enjoyed for the next several days of our trip--a really thoughtful gesture.)

What a joy of a host! from our first email to our last good bye we felt so well looked after. A travellers dream-Delicious healthy breakfast and great coffee,wonderfully comfortable bed, great shower,all in a beautifully relaxed home. And simply the most astonishing views of the Bay of Plenty and surrounding hinterland!!! Lorraine is a wonderful ambassador for the area having been raised in Opotiki. She is warm,relaxed,engaged and generous. We have made a new friend and have found our place when visiting this magical part of New Zealand.

I have so much to say about this place! Booked our stay last minute on new years day. Lorraine was very kind to accomodate us. The two dogs are just too fabulous!!! Very nice vege garden and a large backyard! But nothing beats the view tho! Absolutely recommended. Lorraine and andrew are very warm and easy going people. Would love to come back soon! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR A TRUE KIWI EXPERIENCE~~~
