We spent a wonderful few days at Sue and her husband. The garden is gorgeous, the hosts friendly and the place is ideal for longer holidays. In the morning there was a great breakfast. Thanks again for the wonderful time and greetings from Germany by Kerstin and Michael!

Hi Kerstin & Michael. It was great to show you your first Kauri tree at Oyster River. I have planted 5 more Kauris, they grow easily here. Next time, we make sure we have some 'warm' beers! Thank you for taking time to review us. All the best, Sue & Paul. More

My brother and his wife (from the Netherlands) raved about this place: the environment, the owners and the friendly service. Good advise received from their Dutch travel agent. They would never have found this place otherwise.

We loved staying with Sue. Her friendly welcome, the breakfasts she prepared, the suggestions for places to visit and her guided tour along the property, we liked and enjoyed them all. After only a three night stay it ended all too soon. New Sealand is a bit too far to return for holiday each year, otherwise this B&B would be... More

We very much enjoyed staying here - splendid garden with great bird life, interesting beaches and forests to explore in the environment. Sue did everything to make us feel at home. We loved having a full kitchen and preparing our own meals for a change after 6 weeks of restaurants.

We had some beautiful days at the Oyster River B&B in Cooks Beach with the super-friendly host Sue Warren. Relaxed, helpful, interested and giving opportunities for trips in the area. The B&B is in the center for visit's to the Hot Water Beach, Cathedral's Cove, Cooks Beach and nice walking tracks.

Lovely hosts that know the beautiful spots in this stunning part of NZ. The apartment has a separate entry but is part of the main house. You'll find everything you need, very comfortable. Good options for dining and breakfast only 5 minutes away. Amazing, vast garden (it takes 15 minutes to explore). Would recommend it to friends!
