Location / Nearby Tidesong Bed and Breakfast
Beautiful NZ Hospitality
I have just returned to Australia following a 4 night stay with Roz and Hugh at Tidesong. What a great location! Quiet, tranquil, comfortable room, lovely gardens with a very cool boardwalk through the mangroves. I'll be returning in summer for a mangrove estuary paddling adventure :) Roz and Hugh are beautiful people and the most wonderful hosts. If you're looking for accommodation in the Whangarei Heads area this little slice of heaven is definitely worth a stay.
If you are planning on being anywhere in the area please do yourself a favor and go out of your way to stay here. You won't find a more beautiful location or friendly hosts, with so much to share. You also won't find any friendlier geese or rabbits in the whole of NZ
Such an amazing spot to stay
We stayed for 2 nights and were so welcomed by Ros and Hugh you would think we were old friends. If walking or simply if you're needing a peaceful time away then this is the place. They couldn't do enough for us, and the conversations just flowed. We can highly recommend this B&B.
So much to discover in this tranquil haven
My friend and I found this wonderful place when seeking some badly needed time out from the city grind. This place is everything it claims to be and more. .. Ros and Hugh are delightful hosts. Not at all intrusive yet you feel like you are staying with friends and we took advantage of the opportunity to have a wonderful home cooked meal with them and tap their wealth of knowledge of the local area, their tramping experiences and some NZ history. Swimming in the clear warm estuarine waters and soaking in a warm bath in the bush were highlights. Hope to return soon as 2 nights was not enough to scratch the surface of all there is to do in this wonderful place. There are garden areas, water activities, ducks, rabbit, secluded bush/garden seats, areas for kids to play, even a wee putting green!There is truly something for everyone here! …
What a very special place!
My fiancé Nick and I stayed at Tidesong Bnb for four nights in early January 2016. We had come from the Bay of Islands and really wanted to stay somewhere where we could get some more hiking in and see more of New Zealand’s wonderful countryside. Everything about Tidesong is incredibly quaint and beautiful. Wild rabbits running around the gorgeous garden, pet ducks waddling around the pond and gorgeous views over the estuary onto the mountainous backdrop. I honestly felt like I was in one of Beatrix Potters stories :) The most special thing about Tidesong though, is its hosts, Ros and Hugh. From the get go, we felt very comfortable and relaxed in their lovely home. They went above and beyond to make our stay special, and we will never forget it, especially the yummy breakfasts!! We found them both to have a wealth of knowledge of the local area regarding the best hiking trails, and general things to do and see. They were happy to share their historical knowledge and experiences with us and we learnt so much about New Zealand’s fascinating past. Their genuine warmth and hospitality made us sad to leave Tidesong but we are hopeful to return for another visit soon! If you are looking for somewhere to relax, do some incredible walking and meet some special people - Tidesong Bnb is the place to go! Thank you for everything Ros and Hugh. We will stay in touch :) Bryony and Nick x …
