A little pearl in Cocklebay

4.2 on December 10, 2016

Just spent 2 nights at Rita's place and wanted to take the opportunity to say what a great experience it was. The location is superb, very convenient to the Windross restaurant which allowed us to enjoy a few drinks over dinner and walk back home and also well positioned for any Park Runners wanting to participate in the weekly Barry Curtis event. Rita provided a well stocked kitchen for our use and laundry and trying facilities as well. I am very happy to recommend this establishment to all travellers visiting Auckland.

Amazing stay at Cocklebayhouse

It was a while ago... But we had an amazing stay at Cocklebayhouse. Rita and Paul gave us a warm welcome and it felt like home straight away. They are such a lovely warm couple. We enjoyed the BBQ with them. Perfect wine :-) The house is beautiful. And the surrounding are amazing! If we ever planning to go back to New Zealand, we would definitely go visit Paul and Rita again! Thank you so much for a great start of our honeymoon in New Zealand! Bauke and Minke

First class service and a warm welcome

We had a really excellent stay at Cocklebayhouse when visiting family in Auckland. The B&B offers all the amenities you could wish for and is very near the lovely, sandy Cocklebay beach. Rita made us feel very at home and we would love to go back often - if we didn't live half a world away!

Great stay at the Cocklebay House!

Rita and Paul were great hosts and have a lovely place by the beaches. The location is perfect and within walking distance to beaches and the village. Highly recommended!

We stayed 2 weeks in paradise cocklebayhouse. A warm welcome and a high level of service. What we needed to prepare our trip to one year in New-Zealand. A very comfortable and spacious bedroom, a private bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen and above all the BBQ with wonderful view on Cockle Bay! Thank you to Rita and Paul for their service and support. Nice people that we want to meet daily. Nathalie & Nicolas
