Best B and B .. just go!
Just the most amazing B and B. The hosts are everything.. they make you feel like family and nothing is too much effort It’s a haven for recharging. The view is amazing . It’s close to all the main amenities . Dinner at the Talisman was a highlight. The breakfast was stunning. Everything you could need is provided. We stayed 2 nights and wish it was longer. We are working a plan to return as soon as possible 👍

My wife and I loved staying at the Kaimai Country Lodge. The property was clean and spacious, and the hosts were so friendly and accommodating. Would strongly recommend this to anyone!! The Lodge is a hill overlooking the bay on one side and the mountains on the other. Beautiful views all around. The hosts prepare a big homemade breakfast each morning and can be as involved as you want them to be as you plan your day. You'll definitely need a car as the Lodge is a little further from the action, but we still thought it worked out great!
