Spent a couple of nights, during a brief visit to Russell. Mark and Angelique are wonderful hosts ready and willing to help in any way. It's a lovely property, high up overlooking the Bay of Islands. Very quiet and yet less than 5 minutes by car from Russell. Well appointed rooms (there are only three) and an excellent breakfast served...

Mark and Angelique are the consummate hosts! Personal care and attention (rose petals at our doorway on Valentine's Day), great breakfasts served in stunning dining areas inside and out, and a home they shared with warmth and joy! The views of the Bay of Islands are breathtaking and the location ideal for jaunts on the boats in Russell as well...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon and it was definitely a highlight of our trip. The views were incredible, yes, but Mark and Angelique were spectacular hosts. The food was great, the conversation fantastic, and they went above and beyond to make our time there memorable. I would recommend this B&B to anyone who...

Beautiful views. Comfortable rooms and friendly hosts. Loved the breakfast. Stayed only one night before travelling to Kauri Cliffs. Wished we would have stayed longer. Easy drive to the town of Russell for dinner and shopping. Take the car ferry on the way to Kauri Cliffs and save a lot of time.

Mark and Angelique are fabulous hosts, attentive and great fun to spend time with. The house is lovely with all 3 guest rooms downstairs and these all...

We had a perfect stay at Tiki Tiki Ora. Our hosts, Angelique and Mark, were very welcoming and looked after us so well. Rooms are great, and breakfast was splendid. Views are magnificent. The little town of Russell is pretty, and interesting with lots of history. We went sailing on a yacht for a day in the geopgous Bay of...

"Wonderful" is the first word that comes to mind. The views alone are worth the stay, but the uncompromising hospitality of the two owners makes the experience. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Bay of Islands, Tiki Tiki Ora is an obvious choice.

Tiki Tiki Ora B & B is perched high on a hillside just outside the historic town of Russell (first capital of New Zealand!) with panoramic views over the Bay of Islands. It is a remarkable location; peaceful and quiet, beautifully landscaped, with terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the incredible scenery. From the moment we arrived, we felt like...
