Amazing Weekend Stay - Best Place in Hawkes Bay

Amazing Weekend Stay - Best Place in Hawkes Bay

My wife and I have just had an amazing weekend stay at Bay Guesthouse. Unable to travel overseas we decided to explore New Zealand further, and what a gem we found. The setting was outstanding, as good as anything we have seen around the world, and the facilities complemented the amazing views. What made our stay most special was the hospitality shown to us by the hosts Marianne and Armando. They were welcoming, obliging and waited on us with no task too small or too big. The food they provided was nothing short of outstanding. We could not have asked for anything more than this and highly recommend a stay at Bay Guesthouse to everyone. We feel extremely lucky to have experienced this and cannot wait to go back. Thank you, Armando and Marianne.

Escape to another world

Escape to another world

We had the most wonderful experience with Marianne & Armando at Bay Guesthouse. Their hospitality is absolutely from the heart, and they have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable and relaxed. There are so many highlights to mention - the amazing views across the ocean, the sunrise watched from a comfy bed, the luxury of the accomodation (including the bath with a view!), but most of all the conversations with the hosts, and the exquisite FOOD prepared by the hosts themselves. We are from Napier and wanted a night away, without spending our limited time travelling too far. Staying at this guesthouse we felt we had escaped to another world, and yet it was only a short drive. I feel like we left the guesthouse with two new friends - no mean feat for two introverts :) Marianne & Armando are so welcoming, but strike a perfect balance between giving their guests their privacy, whilst also offering great conversation and company if this is desired. Thank you so much fo making our weekend away a memorable one x

Best Weekend Away

Best Weekend Away

The best weekend away we have ever had - beyond our expectations! The views were to die for, the lodgings luxurious, the food was devine but it was the hosts Marianne and Armando who truly made it magical. We were there to attend the Elton John concert at Mission Estate Winery (Armando also drove us to the concert and back), however, the whole weekend became the highlight thanks to our amazing hosts and our stay in the Captain's House. We will be back.

Luxury Retreat for Hawke's Bay Escape - Memorable Birthday Getaway

Luxury Retreat for Hawke's Bay Escape - Memorable Birthday Getaway

I chose Bay Guesthouse to celebrate my husband's birthday because of the great reviews and photos on their website. It exceeded all of our expectations, and everything the reviews said was right and more.

Perfectly balancing five-star features with bespoke twists, every aspect of the guest experience at this luxe retreat has been designed and built by them to elevate and redefine luxury: from the interior design intricacies that pay homage to the hosts' background to the personalised and attentive service on hand to curate your perfect Hawke's Bay escape.

We experienced five-star sophistication perched high on the hilltop, soaking up uninterrupted vistas of the ocean and Waimarama beach from every room. We had a sumptuous breakfast spread each morning consisting of homemade bread and pastries, cured salmon, cold meats, fruit salad, selection of cheeses, French toast with caramelised banana one morning and the French omelette with camembert and bacon on another and the list goes on. What made it extra special was the pear frangipane tart they made on the morning of my husband's birthday (see photo).

In the evening, we had an intimate candlelit three-course epicurean dining experience with the best ricotta ravioli starter in tomato sauce, main course fish medley of gurnard, monkfish and salmon in the most delicious creamy white wine sauce, followed by a dessert trio of crème caramel, tiramisu and strawberry sorbet.

We also had their handpicked Paritua wines which we really enjoyed, so much so we went to the Paritua winery the next day and bought some to take home.

Most important of all was the warm welcome and hospitality of Armando and Marianne. It was like meeting wonderful old friends and sharing life experiences while being pampered by them.

Thank you for a perfect memorable getaway, and we will be back for more!

Labour Weekend Getaway - Anniversary Celebration

Labour Weekend Getaway - Anniversary Celebration

Our family had the absolute thrill of staying 4 nights here over Labour Weekend. I am pleased to write this review as we were all treated like royalty from the moment we arrived until the time we left. The Guesthouse was absolutely amazing - first-class facilities, spacious and peaceful. This is definitely "the" place to stay in the Hawkes Bay.

Questions and Answers 
which may help to plan your relaxing Weekend Getaway

Do you have an Airport in Hawke's Bay and can you pick us up?

Yes, Napier has a modern new Airport with multiple connections a day to Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch.

Yes, we love to pick you up on a cost contribution-based. The scenic route from the Airport to the Coast Hotel is a  40 minutes drive.  Best combined with some detours to see some Highlights of the Bay

Is breakfast included? What about cooked breakfast?

Yes, a generous breakfast table buffet ist included in the house price of 450 NZD for two guests.

Yes, we serve cooked breakfast have a look at our breakfast page.

Additional guests in the Captain's Cottage will be charged extra.

Can you recommend a wine tour?

The Winemaker Tour is our favourite. 

Don Bird is a very experienced winemaker born and bred in Hawke's Bay. Don can pick you up at our Boutique Hotel.

Watch the video about the "Hawke's Bay Wine Region" to get an idea why an excellent wine tour needs an entire day. 

Can we walk to the Beach and is it a sand beach?

Yes, but we do not recommend it. It's a half-hour walk through farmland with life stock down to the Waimarama Beach. Walking back up takes double the time and is tiring.

Ocean Beach next door is our favourite. A 10-minute drive. A drive to Waimarama-Beach is 8 minutes and includes a welcome stop for an Ice-Cream.

Yes, it is a lovely sand beach.
