Wakefield Quay House Luxury B&B

Bed & Breakfast Rooms & Rates

We have two guest suites and our priority is very personal, attentive service. During your stay we will book the best tables at local restaurants, post you off to our favourite vineyards, artists and places of interest that you may never find otherwise.

Both guest rooms (The Crow's Nest and The Captain's) have brilliant expansive sea views, super comfy beds with sumptuous fabrics and linens, air conditioning, LED lighting, USB charging sockets, fresh flowers, fresh magazines, flat screen TV and iPod dock. We provide good coffee and teas, sparkling water, New Zealand chocolate, bathrobes, down duvets, electric blankets, hairdryers, large fluffy towels on the heated towel rails and pure New Zealand wool carpets. Aromatherapy toiletries are provided for you, along with fast WiFi. Settle in for a silver service breakfast of bread straight from the oven, local organic juices, freshly roasted coffee, fresh fruits and yoghurts, free range eggs and maybe smoked salmon or bacon – Woodi cooks a different breakfast each day to keep you on your toes!

Please note:
  • We have a minimum 2 night stay year round. Single night reservations are only available on request on a fill-a-gap basis, please email us directly for enquiries.
  • We have two cats so our villa is not suitable for those with cat allergies, sorry about that.
  • If you cannot walk up steps and stairs our house won’t suit you, sorry about that too.
  • If you have lots of luggage we are happy to help you get it all upstairs.
