A great location and first class property with excellent hospitality. The lodge is built in a great location next to the sea with excellent views of the waves rolling past into the bay. The cabins are new and fully finished with first class amenities, very good indeed. The hosts are very friendly, knowledgeable and hard working. They cooked the best breakfast we've had in many years. I wish we could have stayed a week but we are committed to move onto Motueka. We will definitely be back for an extended stay.

Our stay at (Tauranga Bay), Cape Foulwind was absolutely perfect. Sandra and Doc invited us in for a glass of wine when we arrived, and cooked us a homemade breakfast in the morning - they are delightfully easy-going and thoughtful folks who welcomed us into their B&B as friends. The suite by the water is stunning: the kind of place you take a picture of when you see the view you’re going to enjoy for the next 24 hours. It is a completely unobstructed panorama of New Zealand’s coast. We’ve stayed in some nice places, but this really takes the cake. The attention to details, high-end finishes, and private, spa-like atmosphere of the suite make this the perfect place to stay on the west coast. Book this B&B - you will not regret it!!!

Doc and Sandra are amazing hosts. The place is clean, beautiful, and thoughtfully designed. The pictures in the ad don’t do justice! It far exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend booking this place! Wish I could give more than 5 stars!
