A lovely home with terrific views. Light sleepers need to be aware that you can hear the ferry, but you get used to it.

Captains Quarters is a comfortable tidy Bach with great views looking towards Kororareka. Close to the ferry terminal which conveniently leaves every 10 minutes and not to far away from Paihia & Waitangi.

This was a lovely home with beautiful water views, a little further out from Paihia than we thought. Would still recommend, Debbie was a great host!

The best value for money experience. Superb location and an excellent environment with such comfort

Stayed February 2019

If you want a place with views to die for and a well appointed property, then look no further than the captains quarters. It is perfect for 2 couples who like the outdoor space and a feeling of belonging in the lovely bay of islands. Highly recommended.

Stayed February 2019

Captains Quarters in Opua is a fantastic property : nice and close to the car ferry with an awesome sea view. It’s a comfortable spacious house with good quality beds & pillows. It feels like a home not a house.

Stayed January 2019

The house was excellent — the best part was the amazing view. Wonderful location to explore the Bay of Islands and come home each night and make dinner and enjoy it on the deck looking out on the water.

Stayed January 2019

Great position with spectacular views. We loved our stay, thanks!

Stayed October 2018

This property is delightful with surreal views of the estuary. We had a pictorial sunset and a lovely misty morning also. As a regular renter in the Bay of Islands I would definitely come back, if it were available, and will recommend it to friends also.
