The Highlight of Our Trip!
The guesthouse was the highlight of our Hawkes Bay weekend getaway. My husband and I are absolutely blown away by the hospitality from the hosts. We spent a weekend at Bay Guesthouse, and we left the guesthouse thinking about our next visit to this beautiful place. We simply cannot wait to plan our next trip here. Thank you Marianne, Armando and Sabrina for looking after us so well. We cannot wait to pay you guys a visit again.
Revisit - warm welcome from Marianne and Armando (fabulous food from Armando)!
We decided to revisit Bay Guesthouse in just two month time! The warmth welcome that we had from Marianne and Armando made us feel like going home meeting our family members. The rooms and everything were maintained at their highest, excellent standards as our previous visit. We spent 3 nights here and we get to enjoyed the beautiful sea view, nice rooms and gourmet dishes that our lovely chef prepared for us. The food that Armando made was fantastic delicious! We especially love the pork and beef. Love the time we had our dinners and chat with the caring couple and it was so casual and comfortable. To welcome us back, they made us a special cake. Thank you Marianne and Armando.
I was taken to Bay Guesthouse as an anniversary surprise - and what a wonderful surprise it was. We were made to feel like special guests right from the moment we stepped out of our car. Homemade goodies waiting for us in the kitchen. Gorgeous accommodation in the Captains Cottage (a two bedroom self contained wing separated from the main house by a sheltered covered walkway with a very surprising floor). Everything had been thought of to make our stay perfect and I can’t recommend highly enough that you dine in in the evenings. Armando’s food is delicious and each night we were served a different themed dinner. But the breakfasts....oh, the breakfasts! Freshly cooked breads and pastries, home made preserves, Bircher muesli, fresh fruits, not to mention the European-style cured meats and cheeses, as well as a hot dish each morning. Amazing! Very comfortable bed, from which we were able to watch the sunrise and see the wonderful view over Hawke’s Bay and Bare Island. Worth waking early for that. The double basins in the main ensuite were appreciated too. Maryanne and Armando mad us feel they were interested in us as people and we had some stimulating conversations - to put it mildly. We were really loathe to leave when our stay was up. Nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure that every need we may have was met. We cannot recommend Bay Guesthouse highly enough. …
Treated Like Royalty
Want to be treated like royalty? I highly recommend Bay Guesthouse for just such an experience. My 86 year old mother had not been on holiday for a while due to her mobility so I wanted something which would be memorable and accessible. Wow all I can say is, as good as the photos are they do not do this place justice. It is an overall experience. We were greeted at the door by Armando, Mary Ann and son Fabian and welcomed like we were the most important people on earth. The house is views all the way through from the skylights to the styling and we were extremely lucky because we went at Christmas so the trees and decorations added extra atmosphere. The Captains House is strategically placed to make the most of the sea views and sunrises. Everything was easily accessible for my mother and her walker and wheelchair. Armando's meals were a treat and specifically catered with my mother in mind. One the 2nd night we had the pleasure of their company at dinner. Once you have experienced luxury like this I think one risks being spoilt(for comparisons) for the rest of your life. This is not our normal price range so all the love and attention was appreciated and I will be forever thankful to Armando and Maryanne for providing this last memorable holiday experience for my mother. …
