Otros aspectos destacables

Our shops carry a good basic range of fresh and packaged foods and many organic products, but can be expensive so its good to come prepared. There are no banks on island but all shops take Eftpos- and bringing some cash is an advantage. Many areas do not have adequate cellphone coverage or wi-fi. There is no mains electricity on the island so leave your hair driers and electric jugs at home ! Water is a also a precious commodity here as most of us run on rain water tanks which we manage very carefully in Summer. Waste and rubbish disposal are a major issue for us so composting and recycling where possible is much (URL HIDDEN) run on rain water tanks which we manage very carefully in Summer.

My stay with Vicky was fantastic, rejuvenating, and I felt right at home in her home. I stayed in Vicky's guest room (there is also a "tiny house" in the back yard available) and it was clean, quiet, and equipped with everything I needed and more. If you're planning to stay with Vicky, the only drawback is that there are no grocery shops close to her house -- the small grocery is about 15 minutes away in Claris -- so a rental car, bike, or willingness to walk or hitchhike to Claris is a must. Vicky provides lots of options for breakfast. Every inch of Great Barrier Island is absolutely beautiful! I flew there from the Auckland airport, and took the 4.5-hour ferry ride back (beautiful scenery and I even saw a whale, a shark, and penguins). Perfect.

My stay at Vicky's place was a slice of heaven. I had two days of hiking and exploring before a work conference in Auckland and I am so happy I chose to spend them at Great Barrier island! Vicky was extremely welcoming and warm and gave me dinner, ideas for hikes and her amazing herbal tea. She is wonderful to talk to and full of information about the island. The room was spacious and comfy and perfect after an active day. The house is very close to the gorgeous beach, so beautiful for an early morning walk. I left Vicky's feeling rested and inspired by nature and would come again if I could!

Patricia was a wonderful guest who made herself easily at home here. We enjoyed inspiring conversation and I would have liked to have had more time doing so. She looked after her own needs and was really happy to fit in. I recommend her as a friendly and interesting visitor who is welcome here again anytime.

We had a lovely stay at Vicky's Beach house! We cooked dinner, using some of Vicky's Vege Garden grown vegetables, which was nice! Vicky also kindly prepared some delicious pancakes for breakfast! We were also able to explore some hidden gems around Medland Beach and Kaitoke Beach thanks to Vicky's knowledge around the beach! On our last day, Vicky also kindly offered to help us offload our luggage to airport first so that we can explore the beach without having to carrying the load! If you are looking for a true B & B experience with a wonderful host in a great location in Great Barrier Island, Vicky's place is definitely the one to go for!

Vicky is a wonderful, helpfull, kind and energetic person. The house is located just behind the beach and prepared to enjoy beach fun: taking shower outside. The room is also very comfortable to stay. Thank you very much for welcoming us and let us stay greatly. I love her place and recommend to stay.

Vicky is a great host, warm, welcoming and caring. The house is comfortable, attractive and clean. Bedroom with king bed homely, sunny and pleasant to be in. Lovely bathroom. The breakfasts were yummy with plenty of options. We enjoyed the organic coffee and gluten free pancakes. The location is fantastic on beautiful Medlands Beach central to the island, with every day swimming and walking, and also convenient to the airport and stores at Claris. Thank you Vicky for a lovely stay!

We had a great stay with Vicky on Great Barrier. We liked the fantastic location best of all, with a stunning beach just outside the front door. Vicki and her home are both warm and welcoming. The bed was huge and super comfortable. Great Barrier is a fantastic place to visit and we like to go when its a bit quieter, outside the high season. At these times it is a little limited in options for food etc so Vicky's advice and tips on where to eat and find things was invaluable. If you like a good burger, try the Burger Shack! Vicky went out of her way to look after us including delicious breakfasts, many cups of tea and chats. We loved staying there and would recommend "The Barrier" and Vicky's place to anyone.
