I can’t even put into words how fantastic our stay was at Naurea. The house is stunning, with amazing views and really inviting comfy spaces. The pool is fantastic and so welcome after days on a bike. Beds were really comfy and in huge bedrooms! There is space to spread out and enjoy time with friends or a quiet moment on your own. But the absolute stand out are the hosts, Katy and Barry! Nothing was too much trouble, they are warm and accommodating and you should definitely take them up on the home cooked dinner! Everything was so good and I’m really looking forward to going back. If you think you have booked long enough, add another day! 5/5 - Shane Williamson
Just like visiting old friends! If you want a 'home away from home' place to stay when in Gisborne then look no further than Naurea Homestead. You couldn't really describe Katy and Barry as hosts, they treat you like family in a relaxed, informal and go with the flow fashion. No request is a problem and the attention to detail in providing for every aspect of your stay is outstanding. The Homestead itself is beautifully restored and simply stunning along with the gardens and grounds that show the care and pride that Katy and Barry take with everything they do. From breakfast to dinner the provisions are from the garden, paddock or locally sourced, and are simply delicious. The rooms are tastefully appointed in the style of the homestead and make you want to stay for weeks - not days. We cannot recommend Naurea to you more strongly for your visit to Gisborne (which is a short 10 minutes drive away) and the wider Poverty Bay region which has so much to see and do. Naurea is a soothing oasis to return to after a day exploring with a warm welcome awaiting from Katy and Barry. We had a fabulous stay and will be returning for more so you better book now to make sure you don't miss out! Debs & Tony.
This is the most beautiful home to have spent a night on our trip around the East Cape and Gisborne! Katy and Barry are incredible hosts that went above and beyond to really give us a night to remember. They were so accommodating to our needs and even went out of the way to find Gisborne's famous seafoods for us before we arrived.
Barry's pizzas are so good and he even took us on a tour of the fruit orchards - absolute highlight of our trip My only regret is that we should have stayed longer! We will surely visit again and stay for much longer on our next visit to that part of the country Thank you so much Katy and Barry for your generosity and kiwi hospitality! Sylvia & Co.
WOW!!! What a magic Homestead Naurea is from its very enormous size rooms to lovely generous meals & fabulous friendly host’s who go far beyond what is expected of a B&B.
Prime views overlooking Gisborne, absolutely stunning especially at sunrise & sunset for that great photo opportunity.
Location is perfect for it’s peacefulness & privacy, yet still close to Gisborne City, Airport, Beaches & Tourist Attractions.
Highly Recommend Naurea Homestead B&B AAAAA+++++
Definitely will be returning in the near future. Wendy.
