Your attention to detail is outstanding, The rooms are spotless and your breakfast is sumptuous.

Our three nights at Marina Cove were great. The accommodation was excellent and the breakfast including lovely fresh bread, fruit, yoghurt and muesli was outstanding. It's a great base to explore further a field and Opua is within walking distance. You won't be disappointed

Stayed here over a weekend with my partner. The place was great with an awesome view and lots of little extras (including fresh baked bread!) which added to a really great experience. The place was tidy and really nicely done. Wendy was super friendly and great to deal with and we had an awesome stay. I would highly recommend staying here.

We can only echo the 5*plus rating from other guests who have stayed at Marina Cove, everything about this accommodation is 'special'. The views are amazing from the Opua room & the things that can be managed are managed superbly. It is without question if we are on holiday again in the Bay of Islands, we will stay at Marina Cove.
