 A lovely location. Nice and private. 

 Nice and quiet,lovely gardens and cool out of hot sun 

 The property is situated in lovely gardens which is very peaceful. We didn't spend much time in Omapere as we arrived late afternoon then spent all the next day travelling up to Cape Reinga. We only stayed two nights but that is because we wanted to go over to Pahia, Russell and decided it would be less of a trip back to Hawkes Bay from Whangarei than Omapere. We do feel Jan needs to look at replacing the bed as you could feel the springs in the mattress but that would be our only negative 

  •  Thanks for your comments Andrew, I have replaced the bed. Cheers Jan 

 The location was perfect for my partner and I. As a working couple, busy all day every day to meet deadlines and run businesses this retreat served what we were looking for, close access to the beach and local amenities, peacefulness and serenity. I loved the gardens and sounds of the trees, it brought complete peace for me. As a manager in a busy world my stress levels were pushed to the limit, but now after staying away at this retreat I am ready to face the world Thank u to the homeowner. 

 It was lovely and private and very clean.would recomend to any one wanting nice peaceful surroundings
