It was hard to imagine just what the setting was for the spectacular outlook, when we found this on the Web. Once we were there it was even more amazing than we thought. On its own hilltop, not far from town and amenities, but in such spacious surroundings that all is peaceful. A spreading house with comfortable grounds to enjoy...

A home from home. We had a most comfortable relaxing stay at Carneval with Martha and Rolly. They were generous hosts, excellent cooks, good home keepers. The rooms were modern with personal touches. Outdoors was available for sitting and relaxing. The view of Cable bay could not be bettered. A great stay and we will go again.

This B and B is perched on a hillside overlooking a stunning bay. It is accessed via a steep road but once at the top it is worth it. Martha and Roly greeted us like old friends and were excellent hosts. Roly even moved his car from the garage to allow our motorcycle to be parked under cover. The room...

Stayed 2 nights with Martha and Roly in this spectacular location. The views of the bay from the deck were fantastic and they provided one of the best breakfasts we have had so far this trip. Wonderful hospitality we could definitely recommend a stay.

What a great place to stay! Great views, privacy, the room tastefully decorated, fruit and chocolates in the room, a welcome drink by the hospitable hosts... And a very enjoyable, breakfast with all one could wish for. This place is to be highly recommended for a special occasion, or just a relaxed stay away from home. A Plus.

My husband and I with my adult daughter thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at Carnavel. Even though the place is available for minimum of two nights these wonderful hosts, very kindly agreed to accommodate us only for one night as soon as they got to know my daughter had only 3 night stay in NZ.. I highly recommend this...

We stayed at Carneval twice during the first quarter of 2016. The ocean view from this hilltop heaven is simply breathtaking. We have traveled across the globe and stayed in numerous luxurious places, but I can say without hesitation that Carneval is simply the best! I never cease to marvel at the fabulous ocean view, whenever we stay at Carneval....
