The location at Ngakawau is lovely. The B&B is just across the road from a sensational beach with sea and sky that seem to stretch to infinity and those beautiful west coast stones that tempt you to take them home. As the Beach Nest wasn't booked during our stay we were able to wander round its garden as well as... More

This is the perfect spot to enjoy and experience the highly recommended Charming Creek Walkway,a 19-km return hike from the B&B. The B&B is also located right across from the beach and access is less than a 2 minute walk away. Host Gay runs a very clean and well appointed retreat. Her rooms are updated and spacious with tasteful furnishings... More

“We very much enjoyed the Driftwood Suite (with ensuite bathroom). The room was spacious and the king bed very comfortable; the deck was adjacent to the driveway and not private, but facing the ocean (you have to cross the street to access the beach).”
