Opito Bay is considered the home of the scallop and at any time you can find a variety of shells washed up on the beach. So get cracking - have that walk along the sand and choose your own "page" for  the visitors book.

When you have returned home with time to reflect on your travels,if you wish,please add a reflective comment directly into our online guest book to share with fellow travellers.
It's real easy to do - just click "add your comments" on top of the guest book page below and follow the prompts.
We look forward to you sharing your experiences at Leighton Lodge Opito Bay.
You can also add a comment for "Trip Advisor" if you wish Just click on the panel above the guest comments and again follow the prompts. New users of Trip Advisor may have to join - it is free though.
Thank you.

Opito Bay was the second place we stayed at in NZ - not including our friends in Auckland. We stayed in the self-catering part because it was easier for us as a family. The views over Opito Bay are simply beautiful and we all enjoyed walking along the lovely beach. Mark and I walked over the headland to get better views over the bay. Maire and Wally were very friendly, as were their two dogs. The accommodation was pleasant and clean and very peaceful. We stayed for 4 days and just loved the whole of the Coromandel Peninsular that we saw. So much so that we felt it is more beautiful than Bay of Islands where we had visited previously. If you want to stay somewhere out of the way then Opito Bay is just the ticket. We have just arrived back home today and are already missing NZ - although it may be some time before we can afford to revisit. Ann, Mark and Reisha, England April 2012

What a wonderful, welcoming place to stay. We were greeted on our arrival by Maire with tea and homemade muffins on the deck, walked on the beach and to the top of the headland with it's glorious views, back for a delicious dinner with Maire and Wally (chatting like old friends), a refreshing night's sleep in the wonderful Pacific View room, and a lovely breakfast with Maire and Wally including homemade bread and preserves. We arrived with jet lag, frazzled after 43 hours travelling, and left the next morning refreshed and relaxed. We loved staying with Maire and Wally and we'll be back! April 2012

Gerlinde, Petri & Berit From: Hamburg Germany
 
We enjoyed our stay very, very much - you are superb hosts. Opito with it's beautiful beach and it's laid back atmosphere is the perfect Coromandel place to relax. The room and your house are both, visually attractive and very comfortable - we felt just so much at home. A special place in my memory have our joint dinners (including the New year´s Eve dinner), the excellent food you cooked for us ( mussles au gratin, lamb wraps, spiced applecake -yammie!) served on a beautifully set table ,all accompanied by Wallys good-humored jokes and easy-going conversation. Thanks again Maire and Wally for all this. Cuddles to Kiri and the puppy. Again, should you come through Hamburg, we would be more than happy , if you would stay with us. Kind regards Gerlinde , Petri, Berit - January 2012

Margaret and Bob Couillault From: Albany, Auckland
 
We would like to thank you both very much for a comfortable, friendly, two night stay recently. Your hospitality was truly "down to earth" - welcoming and warm. We would recommend you to anyone!! The schnapper was beautiful - thank you Wally!!

We loved staying with Wally & Maire. The location is awesome, the views spectacular, and our hosts were delightful, and very helpful with tips on things to do. It was one of our favorite places on our New Zealand holiday.

NZ Traveler From: US
 
Location is fantastic, and hosts are very helpful with planning walks. It was nice to be greated with a cup of tea and warm muffin. I definitely recommend the walk to the lookout if the weather is nice. It's a lot of steps, but well worth it. Would make for a great sunrise or sunset walk. Left with the recipe for some excellant muesli we enjoyed for breakfast The rooms needed a little dusting off, and we had to make up our own spare bed, but it was a pleasant experience over all.

Friederike and Ralf From: Hamburg in Germany
 
We had a lovely stay with Wally and Maire including a warm welcome also from cat and dog. Thanks, Maire, for the delicious freshly baked muffins and bread for breakfast. Since we had no luck with the weather we have to come back and enjoy Leighton Lodge even more with sunshine. Thank you, Friederike and Ralf

Pam and John Mitchell From: Muskoka Ontario Canada/ Abaco Bahamas.
 
We had a lovely relaxed stay with Maire and Wally, The place is so well appointed and the cuisine is excellent, our hosts fully committed to making guests feel welcome. The locality has drama and views to it with the journey, along the coastal cliffs to this hidden gem of a beach community, making you feel well removed from the hustle of the rest of the world. If you want local knowledge and informed discussion be sure to find the time to sit with Wally or Maire and listen carefully, it is a treat.
