Fodor's Review

With views across the sea and a charming host this cliff-top establishment evokes Greece with its angular whitewashed buildings. An old Māori (hilltop fortification) site and a small bay frame a view of islands dotting the clear blue sea. Both suites are self-contained with kitchen and laundry facilities.The stand alone Little Villa has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. All bedrooms look out onto the ocean. Local art hangs in most of the rooms. Paths lead to the two beaches at the base of the cliff, where there is a three-bedroom bungalow in which you can stay. There is a two-night minimum.
