Bush Retreat, bordering Opua Forest, is a spacious family home with a large garden set against a huge bush backdrop. We are about 8 minutes' drive from Paihia and it is a one-minute drive to the Russell car ferry. Opua is a deep water harbour with a long history, but since the marina was built it has become a haven for international yachtsmen.
The price includes continental breakfast: cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast and spreads and coffee and tea. If you wish to cook a meal, you are welcome to use our kitchen facilities any time. Internet access is available.
Room 2 has a queen bed with bedside tables. Share bathroom and separate toilet if we have other guests.
Bush Retreat is a smoke-free environment, but the garden is large enough for those wish to have a 'puff' so nobody else is disturbed!
There is ample parking. We do not have any pets, and hesitate to have a dog, as kiwis can sometimes be heard in the bush at night.

Susan and Ladislav couldn't have been more welcoming or hospitable, as they set me up in their sun room with a place to write and post my travel blog. They are delightful couple as hosts and conversationalists. If visiting the Opua-Paihia area their place may be an ideal option for a B&B with a personal touch -- and a remarkable breakfast.
Tout est parfait, couple qui a le sens de l hospitalité et à l écoute de leurs hotes. Excellent, allez y..
We had a really nice stay! :) Great house with huge and beautiful garden in a great location! The breakfast was lovely. Susan and her husband were very helpful and friendly!
We had just two nights to spend with Susan and Ladislav which was way too short. They are wonderful, interesting people. From the first moment on we felt totally comfortable and familiar with them. Susan´s very british politeness and warmness was wonderful and we could have listened to Ladislavs stories so much longer! They are very knowing people and have a beautiful home. It is really sad that we did not have more time to spend with them but the two nights were a pleasure to stay with such contented and caring and pleasant people. Also the accommodation and food was perfect! Thank you very much for the time. Hopefully we will hear from each other again! Hannes & Elsa
Susan and Ladislav were the most amazing hosts! They were so accommodating and helpful. They were a joy to sit and chat with, but were also mindful if I needed to just go straight to the room and get work done. My husband and I loved our stay with Susan and Ladislav. I even took a photo of them to show our families what wonderful people we stayed with. Thank you so much!!! I truly hope we can meet you again, Susan and Ladislav!
Susan and Ladislav were very welcoming, friendly and insightful hosts. They genuinely wanted to ensure that we enjoyed our time there and were therefore very helpful and full of suggestions on local restaurants and activities as well as day trips in the surrounding areas. The breakfast selection was ample and it was kind of them to allow us to use their kitchen to cook dinner. Overall, this place offers good value for the money and is in a great location to explore the surrounding areas.
We really enjoyed our stay at Bush Retreat. Susan was a wonderful Host and so was her husband. They made us feel very welcome. They were very hospitable and helpful. The breakfast were wonderful. We can throughly recommend a stay with them. Hazel and John
