We stayed in this amazing b and b for 2 nights in January and it was a wonderful experience due mainly to our super friendly hosts, Biddy and Brin---not to mention, Maggie and Carlos, their 2 cute dogs.

A beautiful clean b &b located close to the sea. Very welcoming hosts. The room was great. We took the option of a home cooked dinner and had perfectly prepared blue cod. Also an enormous and tasty breakfast. So glad we found this place!

The Absolute Beachfront B&B has a spectacular location, right on the beach in Bay View, a few km north of Napier. Our room opened on to a large wooden deck, with beach access, where we enjoyed the ocean view in the morning while Sue served a delicious and beautifully presented breakfast. Our bedroom was small but very comfortable. The bathroom...

“There are two rooms, both very attractively presented but only one with the stunning full beach view. Generally only the beach facing room is let out, unless family groups or friends are travelling together, the reason being the toilet facilities are shared.”
