We typically do not chose B&B preferring anonymity of hotels but we intrigued by staying at the farm house and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip. The hosts have an amazing ability to offer suggestions / company when desired while providing you with the privacy you require. We used Beachfront Farmstay as a gateway to Oparara... More

We had a very enjoyable stay for only one night with Dianne and Russel. The room was spacious, nice and very private. We also booked the dinner option and Dianne cooked a delicious meal, it was a very nice evening with an interesting conversation and some nice wine. We enjoyed our stay very much.

This stay was truly wonderful. Diane and Russell are a breed of their own. They were kind. welcoming and generous. Dianne's cooking was excellent and the accommodation, of the highest order, was very comfortable with privacy well respected.

My Mum and I stayed with Dianne and Russell for two nights as part of our West Coast adventure.

This was a comfortable stay and a memorable experience. I'm not always up for a B&B stay, just to lend some perspective. But we were so glad we chose this spot to spend a couple of nights while exploring the area's worthwhile sights. Karamea itself, by the way, is a sleepy town, not in a lovely quaint way, but rather,... More

Dianne and Russell are so friendly and go out of their way to welcome you so it's impossible not to wish you had booked for 'one more night' here.
