Tipi & Bob's Waterfront Lodge

This bed and breakfast has some of the best views from any accommodation on Great Barrier Island and looks all the way to the Coromandel. Not only is Tipi & Bob's place known as a fantastic spot to rest your head, the food is good (locals recommend the scallops) and the bistro bar is a great place to have a drink.
