 Bad weather is no issue with such a fantastic view! The house is well-equipped, comfortable and tidy. The hosts are lovely people who went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and attended to all our needs. 

 Lovely spot, bags of space and THAT view! Would love to say how much we enjoyed it but then that would mean everyone would know what a find it was ;) 

 The Bay of Islands is beautiful! The Bach is nice with a great view of the water, the stars at night were amazing, we enjoyed our honeymoon just lazing about checking out the area, the spa is great, we enjoyed our honeymoon stay here :) Thanks miles for letting us stay, we enjoyed our talks and wish you all the best :) 

 Awesome location and view!! We enjoyed very much and would love to come back for another stay!! 

 This is a peaceful, spacious house that has all that you need. The only thing to be aware of is the lack of cellphone reception, this could be a good thing for some. :-)
