“peaceful spot, warm and friendly hosts”

We stayed here for three nights in September on our way to NZ. Carlo and Roberta were absolutely lovely - from picking us up at the airport, to preparing a delightful breakfast complete with cappuccinos, croissants, and tropical fruits after our overnight flight from LA. The accommodations were just what we wanted - quiet, comfortable, and only a moment's walk to the beautiful beach, and even resident kitties to keep us company when we sat on the shady deck by the massive fig tree. On our last evening there, we and the other guests at the B & B shared drinks and dessert with the hosts -- truly an evening spent with friends, and not just a formal experience at a hotel. Highly recommended!

Our own private, peaceful, shady garden to relax in when we had had enough of the beach.
Handy to everything with helpful owners. We had a great holiday.

My two girlfriends and myself stayed here for 9 days. Carlo the owner could not have been more helpful. Picking us up from the airport and recommending the restaurant where he was the chef which was brilliant. One of the best seafood spaghetti. He even emailed me to say I had left my glasses behind and is sending them on to me. The accomodation was well equipped and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it

The tree house and Carlo were great! Nothing was too much trouble, Carlo is very helpful. Lovely, clean and homely feeling stay, great for a small group (4-6) or family - just lovely to have your own space in such a busy place when you want it. Great value for money and perfect area of the island to stay. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Tree House, it was handy to the Crown Beach Resort and Edgewater Resort, where other wedding guests in our party were staying.
It was a charming house and a good choice as an alternative to staying in a hotel.
The house was very clean and Carlo went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. Thank you Carlo for helping make our daughter's wedding perfect.
