Tucked away off the Mahinepua road near Wharangoa and overlooking one of the most scenic bays imaginable the Beach house was a great retreat. The rooms all have their own well appointed balconies and the views are spectacular. Don't expect wild nights at Cavalli. This is a very quiet out of the way place. Excellent three course dinner available daily...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights there for our honey moon and we had a lovely time. The localisation and views are just fantastic. You are almost alone in the bay and feel very relaxed. However, we didn't feel the luxury of a 5* hotel. Just as an example dinner is totally overrated for the price and you share...

Views were incredible, staff was cheerful and helpful, close to Kauri Cliffs golf course. Wi-if had spotty coverage in our room, had to use main room for connection. Had dinner there on the first night, more than enough to eat. Everything from the appetizers to the desert were first class.

We were very lucky to have a couple of nights at the Retreat with our Grab One Voucher. Richard and Carrie are exceptional hosts and full of fun. Location is spectacular with amazing views. Rooms were very spacious. Both nights we had the 3 course dinner cooked in-house which was well worthwhile. Also recommend the local Mahineapua Bay red wine....

Stayed at this gorgeous spot hidden up North of Auckland. Lovely private rooms with hosts that were not seen unless you needed them. Divine views off your own private balcony, complementary beach towels and kiwi jandels if needed. Amazing meals cooked with local produce at reasonable prices served at sunset. Would recommend to any one that truly wants to de...

Spent a lovely three nights here. Hosts are very welcoming, relaxed and made us feel at home. Beautiful sunny spot with fabulous views. One can either kayak or do the great Mahinepua Peninsula walk or simply relax and enjoy the spectacular views. The hilltop spa provides breathtaking star gazing. Great daily breakfasts with a lovely four course dinner on one...

My wife and I visited Cavalli Beach House in March 2016 and could not have been more blown away by the location, the accommodations, the beauty and the hospitality. This has to be one of the prettiest spots on earth and the Cavalli Beach House is right on the water in a spectacular setting. The owners also cooked and entertained...

Carrie and Richard made us feel very welcome upon our arrival, including unexpected weather delays from our flight into Kerikeri. The unobstructed bedroom views looking into Rapaki Bay are serene and beautiful. The hiking out to the end of the Mahinepua Peninsula is not to be missed! Canapés in the evening with other guests was a social delight! We booked...

What an extraordinary place! Cavalli Beach House is absolutely idyllic...quiet, beautiful, comfortable, relaxing...the perfect place to spend a few days. Carrie and Richard are fun, generous, knowledgeable hosts who know the area well. They suggested the Salt Air flight up to Cape Reinga and the hike that starts at the end of Cavalli Bay, both of which were spectacular. The...
