What a wonderful, welcoming place to stay. We were greeted on our arrival by Maire with tea and homemade muffins on the deck, walked on the beach and to the top of the headland with it’s glorious views, back for a delicious dinner with Maire and Wally (chatting like old friends), a refreshing night’s sleep […]
We enjoyed our stay very, very much – you are superb hosts. Opito with it’s beautiful beach and it’s laid back atmosphere is the perfect Coromandel place to relax. The room and your house are both, visually attractive and very comfortable – we felt just so much at home. A special place in my memory […]
We would like to thank you both very much for a comfortable, friendly, two night stay recently. Your hospitality was truly “down to earth” – welcoming and warm. We would recommend you to anyone!! The schnapper was beautiful – thank you Wally!!
We loved staying with Wally & Maire. The location is awesome, the views spectacular, and our hosts were delightful, and very helpful with tips on things to do. It was one of our favorite places on our New Zealand holiday.
Location is fantastic, and hosts are very helpful with planning walks. It was nice to be greated with a cup of tea and warm muffin. I definitely recommend the walk to the lookout if the weather is nice. It’s a lot of steps, but well worth it. Would make for a great sunrise or sunset […]
We had a lovely stay with Wally and Maire including a warm welcome also from cat and dog. Thanks, Maire, for the delicious freshly baked muffins and bread for breakfast. Since we had no luck with the weather we have to come back and enjoy Leighton Lodge even more with sunshine. Thank you, Friederike and […]
