The Mount St. Paul Estate has new hosts. A charming young couple called Chris and Teara who went out of their way to do everything they could to make our stay memorable in every way. The food was delicious and the service - well I have never experienced anything like it anywhere else. Could not rate this lovely home (bed... More

When you think Great Barrier Island you know there's the possibility of some travel delay - it's what makes getting there so rewarding, so we stayed a day later too. I would advise flexibility with dates so you can change... More

“全てのお部屋において、清潔で心地よく滞在を楽しめます。窓からの風景は、海側(遠くに望む)と山側がありますが、お部屋の広さ(宿泊人数)によって、自ずとどちらかに決まると思います。 In all rooms, you can enjoy a cozi stay with cleanliness !”
