What out guests say

 Lovely night away

I decided my husband needed a night away for his birthday treat, and chose Sandspit Country B&B because it was close to the Sculptureum where we have wanted to visit for some time. Colin and Deborah were wonderful hosts, and we were well looked after. The room was very comfortable and the guest lounge was well appointed - we made great use of the pool table. Breakfast was beautiful, and set us up for the whole day.

My Stay At Your House

Dear Deborah and Colin,

 My short stay at your guesthouse is a lasting memory. I enjoyed it so much, having such a nice room and a great breakfast. I often think about my time being your guest, talking to you about life and drinking good wine. It was a very short stay, but an unforgetable one!

You recommanded me to go to Cape Reinga for sand surfing. I did, it was really funny!Like I promised you, I send you a foto ;-)

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a fantastic new year! Please Stay healthy and lucky!

I hope to come back to New Zealand soon and maybe visit you again.

Best regards,

Totally looked after

From the time we arrived to the time we departed, we were well looked after by our wonderful hosts Deborah and Colin Pringle, as if we were part of the family. 
The room was very clean and well presented. Everything was perfectly placed.
Will definitely be returning for another stay and would highly recommend them to other people.

A very relaxing & homely retreat

From the moment we pulled up on the driveway, our lovely hosts Deborah and Colin (plus Geordie the dog), made us feel more than welcome and very much at home. The (new) pool is irresistible and the locally sourced produce and home cooked breakfast is plentiful and of a high standard. The house is designed to ensure that your stay can be as private or social as you wish. Our hosts were attentive, very accommodating and fantastic company, especially when we all sat down at the end of the day together by the pool to shoot the breeze and enjoy the local cheese and wine. You cant help but fall in love with this place and the hosts. Once you leave, you feel like you've known Deborah and Colin (and Geordie and the chickens) all your lives. Very enjoyable, we will be back.

An ideal country retreat.

Our very best B&B experience in many years travelling, both here and abroad. Welcoming, thoughtful hosts; Real Food from a great cook; plenty of private space to unwind in great comfort; a peaceful and lovely rural setting; close to the many local attractions such as Matakana, the wonderful Sculptureum, Snells Beach and other beaches and vineyards. Geordie, the delightful Border Collie, is an added bonus!
