Thank you so much for your excellent hospitality and travelling advice that was certainly more than our highest expectations . You made our honeymoon something to remember and we had a really special time.

Many thanks to you and Richard for all those special touches, joyous food and views and weather, not to mention the orcas. It was just what we needed as an interlude in a long trek. Best, Best wishes, Carol

We just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you once again for sharing your wonderful home with us, your hospitality and helpfulness in making the most of our stay in the area. We greatly appreciated it!

Our stay at the Cavalli Beach House was truly amazing and we will always remember our stay and will try to revisit at some stage.
Thank you for the hospitality, every aspect we loved so much. We didn’t mind the weather because the view was still so beautiful and the rolling clouds only added another facet.

Thanks so much for being so accommodating and making our stay fantastic! We had such a memorable time and the house/view was beautiful! We’ll definitely be back, hopefully in the near future :)

Thank you so much for the amazing stay we had with you. We both had a fantastic time, I managed to get Pete to sit still for longer than 10 minutes and relax! We posted a photo on Facebook of our delicious breakfast & that lovely view over the bay and had plenty of people ask us exactly where we were staying. We would definitely like to return and would recommend Cavalli Beach House to our friends.

Many thanks for your wonderful hospitality, it was a long needed break for both of us, and we both felt that you have made a little paradise. So well done :-) I could not recommend any changes. Spreading the word, and wishing you a great 2014

Stunning location, accommodation and hospitality. We spent two days and nights in what must be one of the most superbly located resorts in New Zealand. Mahinepua Bay offers scenic walks, and delightful kayaking, fishing and swimming opportunities. The Cavalli Beach House accommodation and facilities are simply superb. The evening meals are cordon bleu standard. Carrie and Richard are delightful hosts. This resort fully deserves its 5 star rating. We will be back

Amazing location and accommodation. We started our 2-week vacation in New Zealand and Australia at this lovely retreat. The location was simply gorgeous and the room was excellent. Spacious, peaceful, private, beautiful, comfortable… everything we were looking for. We hiked and ran the nearby trail each day and borrowed the complimentary kayak do a fun trip across the small bay. The dinner and breakfasts at the inn were phenomenal and Carrie and Richard were charming hosts. It was the perfect way to start our trip and a very hard act to follow.

Bas and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Cavalli Beach house. The suite was magnificent, the view extraordinary, the stocked fridge great,the food very good, the appetizers yummie and last but not Least your wonderful care and time sent chatting with us and guiding us as to what to do.
You get 2 thumbs up!

Now that we are back in the UK (greeted by snow!) we are reflecting on our truly great stay in NZ.  Thank you for your part in making our experience of your wonderful country so memorable.

We are home again, but we miss your perfect and wonderful food. It was an incredible time staying at the Cavalli Beach House Retreat and the very best part of our journey through the North Island.

We had such an ace time with you guys at Cavalli. Thanks for making us so welcome from the Orca’s “hello” to the amazing dinners and breakfasts, through to the chats about life, shows and art!

Thank you again for making the first week of our marriage so incredible, and indeed unforgettable. The food, the atmosphere, and the conversation could not have been better. Thanks again for your hospitality (especially the tea!) and we look forward to hearing from you again soon.
