I was fortunate enough to be recommended to this place. I shared it with great friends of mine. I was astounded when I walked in to the Ara Road Guest House at just how well it was appointed. You could have been mistaken for staying in a 5 star luxury hotel, right down to the lovely linen bath robes that...

We stayed here in early March for a wedding. We stayed in The Barn. Friends of ours stayed in The Cliff House so we were only a short walk away when we wanted to catch up. The Barn provided ample room for the 3 couples that stayed there, as well as being clean, comfortable and well stocked. The Barn also...

We recently stayed here at the Cliff House for our Daughters wedding and it was amazing. The home is stunning and a great place for a big family like us. Our friends stayed with us and others close by making it easy to enjoy each others company in this tranquil spot. Paul and Suzanne were great to deal with and...

We had a great time at Paul and Susannes accommodation. The modern apartment is nicely furnished and the view is just amazing. A warm welcome from Paul and champagne and a cheese platter made our time even more special. In this area there is plenty to discover. Great beaches and a Golf course is in a driving distance. Perfect for...

We spent New Year 2014/15 at the Cliffhouse and it was just incredible. We didn't want to leave. The view is unbeatable and the house is beautiful and stylish yet very practical. We were four adults and one baby and the layout of the house was just perfect. Our friends had the master bedroom which is on one side of...

We stayed in the Cliff House in December 2013 during our honeymoon trip through New Zealand and we did not want to leave and actually extended our stay for another day. The views are phantastic (see pics attached) as is the house which had been updated recently. We received directions from Paul who waited for us when we arrived. He...

What a pleasant experience it was to star at Ara Roa. I had phoned through (from Australia) a couple of weeks in advance to book the accommodation and confirm rates. My original intention was to book The Studio, though, from memory, that may have been undergoing a renovation at the time and so, the owners allowed us the use of...

An outstanding place for those looking for coastal luxury, peace, and privacy. We stayed at the Barn as a couple for a long weekend. It was the perfect romantic getaway for 2, but the huge space indoors and out, and facilities means we will probably come back with kids at some point. Plus: building, grounds, views, fit out, rooms, beds,...

What a find! I hate to admit that it's my first time in northland, my husband has wanted to bring me here awhile and we finally made it, touring around in our vintage car. We found Ara Roa on tripadvisor, and we booked The Barn. It's an amazing drive out there, undulating country roads with majestic coastal views on arrival....
