The location was great and the hospitality of Bruce and Jacqui was terrific. They were very helpful and friendly. Jacqui made me my favourite herb tea, arranged a ATB for my husband and loved to play with our very young kids. We borrowed slides to go to the Sand Dunes and had a blast with the water sile we played...

Everthing was perfect, great hosts, delicious breakfast, perfect location for northland discovery tours. We specially loved the 90 mile beach tour with wild horses and the ducks-feeding-adventure. Thanks to Bruce and Jacqui.

We spent the most enjoyable four days with Bruce & Jacqui in their beautiful home set in extensive gardens in a quiet location within easy reach of a nice restaurant, shops and the harbour. We really appreciated their warm welcome and lovely hospitality. The breakfast and the dinner were outstanding! During our stay, we could make friends with other guests...

We stayed at Houhora Lodge during Christmas 2012. Could not have picked a better place anywhere else. The house is beautiful and the rooms were great. Clean and very comfortable with small refrigerators to store our travel goodies. Thank you Jacqui and Bruce for making our Northland trip extra special. My aunt, who was hesitant about living at B&Bs, is...

Fabulosity: How to get it? Visit this B&B for a lifestyle experience. A contemporary house with timeless appeal. The room was very comfortable with thoughtful touches like a fridge for picnic items and robes for relaxing. Having a separate entrance meant you could be independent if you wished. Our family including a teenager thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Bruce and Jackie...

We stayed at Houhora Lodge and B&B in order to attend a wedding nearby. Bruce and Jacqui were wonderful hosts and very accommodating as we brought our 4 month old daughter to be looked after by my mum while we were at the wedding. Our rooms were comfortable and clean and our hosts were kind enough to source a portacot...

It was our pleasure to share an evening meal with your lovely mum. Jacqui also enjoyed "Granny Duty with her caring for your new baby" We enjoyed having you all stay and learning a little about your life in Australia. Thanks for your kind comments. Bruce

Beautiful B&B to stay at. It reminds you of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. The room we had was quite nice and comfortable. It had separate entrance both to the front and back of the house, and was just off the great room. Bruce and Jackie are very gracious hosts. They got us dinner reservations for the night, and then served...

Every thing was perfect: beautiful room, outstanding cooked breakfast, and lovely hosts. Bruce took us out to the 90 mile beach and the wild horses: Marvellous!! We enjoyed the Ducks in front of the house. One of the best B&B we ever had.

Wonderful hosts, great beakfast, and a good location if wanting to spend a day exploring the northernmost tip of NZ, which is thoroughly recommended as there's fantastic views and nice walks at Cape Reinga. There is even a hotel near to the B&B where I sat in the beer garden watching a flock of black swans on the water whilst...

Arrived to a welcome from Jackie who showed us around the Farm stay, Bruce was out cutting the grass, and came in shortly afterwards. As we arrived late we were asked if we wanted an evening meal (payable) I'm glad we did, it was delicious with wine as well. Bruce advised us what we could do in and around Houhora....
