We stayed here for 3 nights with my kiwi brother and his wife. The home stay was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. The rooms had patios with fantastic views of Mercury Bay. What made our stay so special was the hospitality. It was great to breakfast with Helen and Edwin. Great memories to take back to the UK.

After showing us our fabulous room and courtyard with the most amazing view, she kindly offered to do our washing whilst we explored the beautiful seaside town of Whitianga. We met Edwin on our return and... More

We arrived at Helen and Edwin's lovely B&B in the late evening, the view from our room and patio overlooking Mercury Bay through to Shakespeare Cliffs brilliant. It was on these cliffs that Captain Cook observed the transit of Venus in 1769. So relaxing! Our room fully out fitted, nothing lacking. Great breakfast and joined by our hosts. The hosts... More

We stayed for three nights, and had a great welcome from Helen and Edwin. Our room was spacious and self contained, with a little lobby as well as a separate shower room, with a super king bed.

The views from the Ohuka Place Homestay are exceptional, as is the friendly service. Helen and Edwin are ideal hosts; their warmth made us feel immediately welcome. The room was perfect: very spacious, with an incredibly large bathroom, and the most comfortable bed during our whole trip. It even included a little sitting area outside where we got to enjoy...

We only stayed for one night and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was nice with great views, Helen and Edwin were fabulous hosts, Bailey the dog was very friendly, and breakfast was wonderful. The drive into town only took a few minutes and we loved the peace and quiet of Ohuka Place Homestay.

Helen & Edwin own a HUGE place on top of a hill overlooking the Mercury Bay. Both of them are extremely warm & friendly and Edwin makes the best Bacon for breakfast. The rooms are quite big and very comfortable. Laundry is complimentary and the dog Bailey is adorable. Even my wife who hates dogs fell in love with him... More
