Spent a delightful week at whispering tides. Kathy sorted our booking and Lucy welcomed us. She had kindly left us fresh bread and breakfast items in the fridge. There were also some wine and beers, as a nice bonus. The owners were very friendly too. The facilities are super, bed very comfy, view is lovely. We are returning for another stay.

We booked the nice cottage for 4 days as a special end of our NZ trip. Unfortunately the introduction was very quick and the woman just wanted to leave again. Maybe it was an exception. However the house is beautifully located and the rooms are nice decorated. There is nearly everything you need for a worthwhile stay. Unfortunately again there is far more potential for this accommodation: the cottage was not cleaned properly e.g dirty windows or cobwebs in every room, hairs in the bathroom and finally the terrace including the comfortable chairs were dirty. In a cleaner condition you probably could enjoy the stay more. Furthermore it was not possible to use the Kayaks because we had no introduction to that, they were extreme dirty and no idea where the equipment was. Nevertheless we had a good time despite of the circumstances.

We loved our stay at Whispering Tides. Kathy and her team took care of us from the moment we made contact. The accommodation is a lovely place in a peaceful part of the bay with lots of outdoor space to relax and enjoy the views. Bayswater ferry port is a short 10 minute walk away, providing easy access to Auckland City. There are also plenty of local shops nearby. On arrival (after a very long flight) we were delighted to find fresh bread, milk and other essentials (including wine and cold beer) waiting for us. Every last detail had been considered by our hosts; even to the extent that a magic fairy put our rubbish out on collection day. Extremely thoughtful hosts, it was very much appreciated - thanks!

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your time at Whispering Tides. The location is great in terms of being on Shoal Bay and close proximity to the Bayswater ferry etc. Have a sensational time while you are in this stunning country of Aotearoa/New Zealand. Thank you for being exemplary guests.

What more can we add to the already amazing reviews for Whispering Tides.......? From the moment I sent Kathy my initial email right the way through to our arrival everything was seamless and easy. And then we saw the apartment and "Those" views. WOW! The apartment is a gentle 10 minute stroll from Bayswater ferry terminal which is in turn a very pleasurable short trip to the main Auckland ferry terminal. What a great way to get around! Auckland is unquestionably beautiful and demands time and lots of it in order to do it justice. We will have to return! We have only one 'gripe' and that has nothing to do with the accommodation. Well not directly. The gripe we have is that we didn't have long enough there! We will have to return, to not only Auckland but hopefully to Whispering Tides assuming it is vacant. Given the views and niceness of the whole accommodation we will have to book early!

Hi - I am Kathy Sykes and I absolutely adore and love life and in my little world live it to the best of my ability and share my joy of living with other people.
I am married to my high school sweetheart (we meet 47 years ago) and we have grown adult children - 2 live in the states and the rest live in Auckland.
Our lives are focused on our family and "living the lifestyle" that this stunning country has to offer. I am a 5th generation New Zealander but have lived globally and for extended periods of time.
We LOVE having people stay at our accommodation s- we offer studios, one bedroom, two bedrooms, three bedrooms and more - all our accommodations are immaculately presented.
