We had a very warm welcome to Joan and Brian's lovely, spacious flat. It was very well appointed with all the amenities you would want and more. The private deck looked on to a beautiful tropical garden. Being in Opua meant it was a convenient, non crowded place to return to after Paihia. Highly recommend this to others.

This was a comfortable place to stay and had all you will need whilst travelling. Joan and Brian went further to accommodate for our toddler who loved the outdoor swinging chairs in the morning. Very peaceful. The accommodation was close to the port where you can catch the ferry to travel to Russel.

Great space with all the amenities should you choose to self cater. Appreciated the loan of the bikes to enjoy the disused railway line to Kawakawa. Joan and Brian are very convivial hosts.

Brian and Joan are wonderful hosts who have made a very unique, comfortable space for their guests. You are immersed in an unbelievable lush garden. The guest house was very comfortable and very quiet. They are absolutely lovely to talk to. The Opua Marina is a short beautiful walk from their property. We'd be quite fortunate to return to their beautiful home in the future.

Thank you Joan and Brian for sharing your piece of paradise with us and being such wonderful and friendly hosts. Was a great place to base ourselves to see the sights of the Bay of Islands. The apartment was very comfortable and clean with everything we needed, also lovely and quiet. Looking forward to coming back again. Thanks Sharyn and Jeff

Joan and Brian were great and their place was awesome. They are sweet people and I actually ended up running into them one night at dinner and we shared a laugh. If you're in the area it's a great place to stay!
