My fiancé Nick and I stayed at Tidesong Bnb for four nights in early January 2016. We had come from the Bay of Islands and really wanted to stay somewhere where we could get some more hiking in and see more of New Zealand’s wonderful countryside. Everything about Tidesong is incredibly quaint and beautiful. Wild rabbits running around the gorgeous...

We stayed one night with Ros and Hugh after four days walking on the Te Araroa trail. We experienced incomparable hospitality with delicious meals and fabulous conversations. Our bedroom overlooking the kauris and totaras was sublimely comfortable; we slept like the proverbial log. Highly recommended; we will definitely return to this special place.

We were walking a section of the Te Araroa trail and decided to stay a night. What a find! Nothing seems to be too much travel and you are welcomed into the home so generously. Great food, great accomodation, great company. I would recommend Tidesong to anyone -walkers, travellers, people just wanting to get away for a break in lovely...

I stayed as a section walker of the te araroa. After walking through the muddy mangroves I looked a mess but I got a big smile from Ros when she saw me and got out some cleaning aids. The room was very nice and the food was terrific. Hugh rowed me across the estuary the next day and went out...

A really memorable stay. Tidesong is in an idyllic and peaceful situation and the accommodation is secluded and comfortable. The house is surrounded by a large interesting garden, of which the owners are justly proud, steeply falling to the mangroves at the water's edge. The breakfasts and dinner were perfect - no 5 star hotel could touch them - with...

My partner and I were in much need of a relaxing getaway and this gorgeous little cottage retreat settled on a small hill above the mangroves was everything we hoped for and more.

A little weary from travel I accepted the recommendation from the woman in the iSite in Whangerai. I am so glad that I did, I was made to feel very welcome at Tidesong. I had a lovely cup of tea on arrival, a comfy sleep and tasty breakfast. Complete with Fejoia picked that morning. The garden was lovely to have...

We certainly felt very lucky that we chose Tidesong for our two day stay in Whangarei Heads. Although Hugh's wife was away, he was the perfect host and greated us with tea and cake. Cooked a very good breakfast and could not have been more helpful. He even took my husband in his boat to look at a sea bird...
