Bay of Islands Beach House is an excellent place to stay. We were in the studio (see photos) and had the most amazing view. When we arrived it was raining and a gorgeous rainbow greeted us as we checked out the view from our suite. Our room was immaculately clean. We use the little kitchenette to make meals, and enjoyed... More

This place is a real let down and I would certainly not recommend it to anyone. As a Kiwi, I always wanted to visit this part of NZ, and having travelled around the country, I know that general standards at hotels, lodges and B&Bs are very high. However the Bay of Islands Beach House is below these standards on number... More

Stayed there March 14-17. Very clean, well maintained and cosy property with fantastic views and sunrises over the bay; see attached pictures. Dining on the balcony is unforgettable! You can get there by the road as well as by a path from the beach. Owners were very kind and helpful.

This is a highly deceptive property with terrible access to town. Although we were not happy with either the location or the quality of the apartment, the owner took payment without our consent as soon as we arrived. The owner bundles a number of properties together - with the nicer, more modern ones prominent in the photos. Here's the full... More

This is not the easiest place to find as it is off Sullivan Road and down a steep winding drive but it is well worth looking for. The owners were so helpful and friendly and when we were shown into our apartment we just stopped and went Wow!!. It was an absolutely beautiful place, equipped with everything you could think...

The Islandview Apartment we stayed at had one of the best views of the bay. The apartment was fully furnished right down to the detergents and washing agents. The kitchen was well stocked to do some light cooking as well.

Stayed here for 4 nights, great hosts they were always around to help if we needed it. Hero the dog also kept an eye on us, he would pop to say hello every day. The views from the Beachfront were lovely and it was only a short walk down to the lovely clean beach.

From the welcoming cold drink on arrival to the stunning ever changing views this was the highlight of our trip to New Zealand. Theo and Hero the dog welcomed us despite being much earlier than we had said. Theo gave tips on where to eat and booked a boat trip with discount for us. The rooms were spacious and well... More

A self contained holiday suite that caters for everything you could imagine. Stunning location fabulous host privacy and easy access to town. The driveway is a challenge and would not be suitable for aged or infirm. Loved every minute of the five days we stayed. Views are amazing. Hero the dog is an added bonus

Stayed in Islandview Suite for 3 nights- the view is far better than the pictures suggest (which are very good in the first place) as several large trees have recently been cut down. Apartment was spotless and had everything we needed and the town is just a short walk away.
