Pros: Fabulous location on a lake with beautiful birds on the doorstep, really lovely comfortable and spacious accommodation, friendly and helpful hosts, very knowledgeable about the area. Gorgeous sunsets, harbour and beach to enjoy and explore. We walked around to Rings Beach which was also lovely. The bridge at Kuaotunu was closed due to storm damage which unfortunately meant a long drive to access the Hot Water beach and the Cathedral cove area. We opted to take the 'short cut' road which was pretty grim, mainly rough gravel with some very precarious parts, the locals do drive pretty fast and furious!! Apart from that, fantastic area, we loved it.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wally & Maire are fantastic hosts. No, they're not hosts, they're more like family. Wonderful experience! They really couldn't have done enough for us. My partner and I had a fabulous time and are looking forward to another trip to the Coromandel. Wally loves to talk, so make sure you ask him about what to do in the area and whose who. There's a lot of playful banter between Wally & Maire. So lovely to see a couple so in tune with each other. We got to use the kayak which was a lot of fun. I love chickens so I got a cuddle from one happy hen. Not to forget friendly, affectionate Fern (Labrador)! There is delicious homemade bread, homegrown honey, eggs, rhubarb and more at breakfast. Yum!Yum! Lisa & Hugh

They were brilliant with our spirited two boys (age 9 and 11). We would love to go back to Leighton Lodge, a lovely B and B in the beautiful Opito Bay.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The views from our room and the breakfast are were spectacular! The beach is just down the road from this property, an easy walk or a two second drive. It offers great swimming or fishing. The host went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of, even in the periods of time when we were to be more self-sufficient. He offered us the use of his kayak and barbecue when we wanted to bbq our own meal. He taught us how to shuck the scallops we caught and cook them. He was great company! His wife was very friendly as well and I hear she usually makes the best meals ever, however she was recovering from some recent medical treatments so we did not see her as often on this trip.
Cons: The only thing wrong was that we didn’t stay longer!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: What a nice place and such lovely hosts! We had two nights at Leighton Lodge and we enjoyed our stay very much! Maire and Wally are very friendly hosts! We also loved our walks with Fern the super cute Labrador! We would come back anytime!

Pros: We had such a wonderful stay with Diana and Gordon! After traveling around both the north and south islands for 5 weeks, staying in a camper, various hotels, motels and B&Bs, it was such a delight to end our NZ vacation by staying with Diana and Gordon. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like we had arrived at our relative's home and felt immediately relaxed and comfortable. Our bedroom was private, bed was comfortable, breakfast was great (a choice a various cereals, fresh fruit and made-to-order eggs) but the time spent with the two of them was the best! We also took the double kayak for a spin in the bay and had a refreshing inadvertent swim when trying to return to the beach. We would have stayed longer if we could have.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly Jill and Eric. Free and sufficient breakfast. Half an hour drive to Hot Water Beach and extra 10 min to Cathedral Cove. En-suite bathroom. Close to New World supermarkets. I am a bit late check in, Jill still happy to help. Spaceous free parking.
Cons: Did not realize I can ask for a heater, a bit cold and freezing at night and in the morning, particularly the windows in bathroom and common room have to be opened. The location is a bit middle of the street. Good to have a bigger signage for new guests

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owners are really friendly and welcoming. It’s a quiet place but we enjoyed that. Rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed. The kitchen was probably the best we’ve seen in nz, it has everything you could possibly need and 2 ovens which is a rare occurrence for hostels in nz! Nice garden area to sit outside and close to the town as well as the supermarket and beach so a perfect location.
Cons: Nothing!

Cons: Everything was exactly as we needed it.
8.3 Excellent
Cons: There were flies and a little native cockroach in the bedroom. My partner was disturbed by them and had trouble sleeping. Just took the edge off the very high quality of the overall experience.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: David has absolutely nailed it. The location is simply spectacular, the views mind blowing. I had my reservations about bed and breakfasts when booking this accomodation online, but as soon as i did, within five minutes of booking the phone call i got, welcoming me for my future arrival to recommending booking my dinner spot for the evening upon our arrival, we knew straight away we had made the right choice. We arrived to a magical location with spectacular breathtaking sea views infront of us and a beautiful great sized room, high end high quality furnishing's , our own private full bathroom, private lounge and private decking area. As well as the main areas to relax in, the decor is so superb i would have to say top designers would drool to take in the sheer thought of the layout, furniture and settings. We were offered canapes and wine on the deck before our pre planned dinner by our hosts which itself was incredible experience. David recommended a fantastic restaurant which we enjoyed on our first evening as did every other restaurant he recommended. He planned our days activities based on what we wanted to do, which included detailed driving instructions down to the T which included pictures of the turn offs to take to get to our destinations. The morning breakfast's were even more spectacular. I am a big boy and i can eat alot just ask david and i was left completely full with all the breakfast options available and david cooked me a breakfast that top rated restaurants in auckland couldnt compete with daily. The remainder of the stay was much of the same class and service. I have stayed in fine resorts and 5 star hotels over the years and nothing compares to the level of service, we got at bayview. I wont consider staying anywhere else should i return to the location on future trips. Check out that breakfast layout in my below pic, where else in NZ could you get that I have recommended your facilities to family and friends.

Pros: Our hosts were incredible! David knows everything there is to know about New Zealand! He helped us plan our time in fun easy to follow ways and gave us suggestions on how to enhance the plans we already had.

Cons: I can honestly say that I have nothing negative to report! 10/10, 5/5, 100%, can't get any better.
