We stayed here on our third night in NZ, as part of our 37 day 4WD tour. I had been very ill the day before, with a bug caught from a Virgin Australia in flight curry. The night we stayed here I was feeling somewhat delicate, and tired after the full day drive up from Auckland, in a strange car.... More

I had a room inside the house which was in fact a part of the house. There was a seperate toilet and bathroom. The host and hostess are very friendly and gave me all the touristic info I needed. The parking is large. It's a pity they are intended to stop the B&B and just to continue with the 2... More

Small B&B set on the shore with a great view, the accommodation was in a self contained part of the main property. Very clean and comfortable room. Excellent breakfast. Hosts were friendly and helpful.

As others have said, Omapere is a very small place. This lovely B&B is quite a find with such limited choice. It's right on the beautiful beach and you have a verandah to sit on and enjoy the view. We stayed in the guest room which has its own entrance and is separated from the rest of the house. The... More

Omapere is a very small place. This is a good option to stay. Well priced, simple but comfortable. Pretty much right on the beach - about 15 metres away. You can walk along the beach to the swish resort for dinner. Hosts very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

McKenzies Accommodation has a B&B guest room plus bathroom and toilet separate from the owners; or a self contained unit at the back of the property for stays of several days or more.

There aren't many options to choose from for accommodation in this area but this place is pretty good. We only stayed here for one night in their cottage. The cottage is comfortable with clean kitchen, living area, 2 bedrooms and bathroom. They have satellite TV but the free WiFi has poor reception in the cottage as the modem is in... More

I was traveling up North and found this place by chance after reading the reviews. As I was traveling with my daughter we stayed in the two bedroom cottage. The cottage was very clean and tidy, warm and comfortable, with very friendly owners. Once again Thank you.

A lovely location and the perfect place to stay. We stayed in the guest room rather than the detached apartment, and were only there for one night in February 2014, but would happily have stayed much longer if time had allowed. Everything about the B&B was spot-on, and the welcome and assistance from our hosts was like being with old... More

Great location just off their own private beach. Stand in hosts Neil & Catherine were very attentive and we couldn't have wished for anything better - except for the weather as hurricane Lusi was due in overnight!
