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.

Everything we needed
Lovely, wish we'd had longer here
A piece of paradise
What a beautiful spot! The house is immaculate, the setting stunning and the hosts very helpful and friendly. I can't fault anything and wish we had been able to stay longer. We'll definitely be back - I miss the view already!
Thanks Delwyn, as well as Lynda and Kevin for hosting.
What a gem
Such a delightful place for the week we spent in the bay of islands. We also rented the upstairs unit and another two houses up. All 13 of will remember this holiday for the rest of our lives. The kids had an amazing time on the beach a stones throw from our porch. Everything we could have needed was in our cottage. It was just great. Thank you thank you thank you Linda!
old world charm with a modern day twist every thing was great ,the views the lay out suburb

Wish it could've been longer
Great place to stay, gutted we couldn't get it for a longer stay (dates were booked out). Without a doubt will be our first preference for a place to stay the next time we're back in the Bay.
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.
