About Delwyn Barnett
I am a mother to five grown children and also a grandmother. I live in Taranaki, New Zealand. Interests are family, travel, gardening, pets and photography.
Delwyn Barnett purchased this Apartment in 1885
Why Delwyn Barnett chose Opua
Although I put the year purchased as 1885, this obviously is not when I purchased the property, but when my great grandparents moved the building to its current location at Opua. It was run by my great-grandmother, then my grandmother after that as a boarding house. In 1967 my uncles divided the property into five separate apartments, three of which I now own. My hope is that my children too will keep this property, maintain and value it as I do.
What makes this Apartment unique
I love the history, especially the family history attached to this old homestead and the Opua area.

Highly recommended. Absolutely loved staying in this gorgeous heritage building. Beautifully styled and very spacious. It was the perfect place to spend our wedding night and stunning to wake up in the morning overlooking the water.
Quaint on the waterfront
Relaxing and enjoyable. Beautiful view across the harbour while relaxing on your private veranda. Lots to see and do.
Another great stay
Had a lovely time staying at Opua again and enjoyed staying in the villa. The area is lovely and quiet and a nice change from the hustle and bustle of Auckland. The property managers Lyn and Kevin were lovely and helpful as always. Look forward to staying again.
Hosts were friendly and helpful. The accommodation was spacious and smart.
Very easy and a delight
Lovely seaside escape
We had a wonderful time here. A fantastic place to stay. The hosts next door were amazing and made us feel right at home and helped with anything we needed. The owners must be stoked to have such wonderful hosts caring for their guests!!
Opua is a good base for exploring the Bay of Islands and far north. The Twin Coast cycle way starts or finishes at Opua and Horeke on the west coast. Lots of water activities, boating, fishing, kayaking, deep sea fishing, etc. Most of these are based in Paihia which is 5 kilometres by road. There is a lovely coastal walkway from Opua to Paihia which takes about 1 1/2 hours to walk.
