When you travel to a different hemisphere on the other side of the planet, you expect to experience new cultures, culinary surprises, madcap adventures and sights unlike any you've ever known. The North Island of New Zealand was all that and more. What made our trip particularly unique was finding a sense of home at Ocean Vista. Our hosts, Klaus and Erika, were charming and welcoming. Our accommodations were the same. The space is aptly named, every day starting with a spectacular view of Waitangi and the Bay of Islands.
I'm sure that sharing your home with strangers must be challenging, but Klaus and Erika never made us feel like strangers. They were never intrusive and yet they were always there for us when we needed questions answered or instructions on how to use the washing machine or to borrow a chilly bin for a picnic.
Spending those eleven days at Ocean Vista was the most important choice we made in planning our time in New Zealand. Instead of staying in a hotel, we had a home. Klaus and Erika gave us a familiar touchstone, a place to land at the end of the day where we could cook or relax with a glass of wine and talk about the day's adventures. It was a paradise within a paradise.
The Wesche family and Ocean Vista are indelible parts of the landscape of our travel memories. Thank you both for sharing your home and fantastic country with us.
We very much enjoyed our stay here. The room was very comfortable, and is part of a larger apartment with a kitchen and a dining room, as well as a lovely spacious terrace overlooking hills and a river valley. The beds were great! Klaus welcomed us and each day we had a well cooked breakfast with home made bread that was delicious. Coffee, tea etc. were provided. Everything was sparkling clean and well maintained.
Klaus and Erica made us very welcome. Klaus brought a lovely breakfast both mornings. The apartment was lovely. Immaculately clean and well appointed. The surroundings and view from the balcony lovely. We were there for Waitanga day and the access was good with easy parking. I would recommend this lovely booking to anyone. Wish we could have stayed longer. Jill and Jude.
Erika und Klaus sind vor Ort die Gastgeber und einfach super!! Tolle Wohnung, super "schwäbisch"-sauber, alles vom feinsten: Volle Punktzahl!!
Erika and Klaus are simply wonderfull hosts and the unit is perfect!!!
As final destination we picked Dieter's place by the river ... The room had a very comfortable queen size bed, build in wardrobe and a small desk. We had a bathroom literally to ourselves. The house itself is spacious, close to Fremantle, very clean, including stunning sunset riverviews either from the balcony or the giant terrace. We enjoyed the hospitality, chats and a glass of wine with our lovely hosts while watching dolphins cruising up and down the river. We can't wait to meet again. Highly recommended to everyone!
A big thank you guys - a perfect finish for our holidays.
Klaus was a wonderful, helpful host. The space was clean, comfortable and convenient. klaus went out if his way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Would definitely return.
Superb accommodation with fantastic views of the Bay of Islands. A spacious, clean and well equipped apartment in a quiet location. Our host was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at your place. The view was stunning and there was nothing at all that we needed because you had thought of everything, definitely a place we wish to return to.
Das ist eine sehr schöne Unterkunft mit eine sehr schöne Aussicht in Richtung Meer. Die Beschreibung der Unterkunft stimmt genau. Die Küche ist sehr gut eingerichtet, gute Betten, ruhige Gegend. Sehr angenehmer Gastgeber. Die Wegbeschreibung ist ausreichend, die Unterkunft ist auch ohne GPS findbar. Wir waren sehr zufrieden.

We spent a wonderful eight days with Erica and Klaus. We chose their accommodation for the view, locality, and quiet surrounds. Our expectations were surpassed on all counts. Klaus and Erica were very friendly, helpful, but at no time intrusive. I would call them professional. The self-contained unit was immaculately clean with a full kitchen, separate bathroom, and full laundry facilities. The glass doors opened on to a relaxing garden setting. But the most memorable aspect of the accommodation was the view across the Bay of Islands, Waitangi River, Waitangi Golf Club and Treaty Grounds. We were amazed to see the cruise ships anchor on the Bay, knowing that the hustle and bustle of Paihia was so close and yet we continued to enjoy peace and quiet. As visitors to New Zealand we greatly appreciated advice from Klaus regarding places of interest. While there we discovered that Klaus has travelled the world and is an adventurer in his own right (plus he bakes the best bread ever!). We would happily recommend their accommodation for short or long stays!
Dieter was an awesome and perfect guest. He was very easy to communicate and coordinate with. He left my apartment in clean and perfect condition. I would gladly host him again and would highly recommend him to any host!
Great company to have in your home very friendly.
Dieter was absolutely charming and the apartment was left perfectly clean. When he arrived I had a light fixture that needed to be fixed, but he was so accommodating about it. What I appreciate most about Dieter is that he communicates really well - both before, during and after the stay.
Dieter and party were great guests. Friendly guests who left the place clean and tidy. Recommended all. A++
