Aotearoa Southport Bed & Breakfast
Kia Ora and welcome to Aotearoa Southport Bed & Breakfast – “A Slice of New Zealand in the Heart of Southport”. Your hosts, Denise & Vince were both born in New Zealand and would like to share their house with you. We are a small family run Bed & Breakfast in a modern, private house, just minutes walk from the town centre, tucked away in peace and tranquility and surrounded by trees and gardens.
Aotearoa (Ao-tea-roa) is the Maori name for the Country of New Zealand. The literal translation of Aotearoa is “Land of the Long White Cloud”. This description of New Zealand is thought to probably be a reference to the appearance of mountainous land when seen on the horizon from a canoe after an ocean voyage.
Our specialty breakfasts are Gluten Free, Grain Free and follow the Paleo Principles using fresh and locally sourced or home-grown ingredients. We offer both Continental and Cooked Breakfast options and guests are given a menu to choose from.
We specialise in providing a friendly welcome to both humans and dogs alike, and Leroy and Ziva our friendly German Short-haired pointers look forward to meeting all dogs and their well-behaved humans. Please note that if you do not like dogs or are nervous around them, please do not book with us. Dogs are welcome for an additional charge and we can advise you on the dog friendly attractions in the local area - you are required to request the right to bring your dog before your stay so we can ensure you meet the requirements.
