A one-night stay was not enough. Kathryn and Peter are excellent hosts and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. My room was very comfortable with a balcony and great views down to the sea.
Breakfast was lavish and Peter was very helpful in providing information and tips about special places to see in the Coromandel.
I thoroughly enjoyed staying there and can't recommend it highly enough.

We only stayed for one night, but I have to say it was the best accomodation we stayed in out of our 2 week NZ trip. The hosts Kathryn and Peter were very welcoming and thoughtful. The view from our upstairs room was beautiful, as was the room itself. We decided to stay in for a home cooked meal, and were glad we did. Kathryn's cooking was delcious and both hosts were very lively and entertaining dinner companions.

We're so happy everything else was booked when we were looking for accomodation during easter. Even though we thought it was a little too expensive at first, it turned out to be well worth it. We got the most beautiful breakfast (both musli and your choice of cooked food(!)). The hosts were really friendly, they made you feel like you were a relative visiting. They were also very helpful when we forgot a jacket there. They even called the boat-company (that we were going om a trip with) to let us know we forgot the jacket. They help arrange so we got the jacket without going back. The house a 15 minuten walk from the beach but has great veiws, well worth it!

We had an extremely comfortable room, with lots of little extra touches together with great views. Kathryn. and Peter were wonderful, knowledgeable hosts. The only downside was stay was too short both with them and in the area. Definitely a place to revisit. Branwen & Terry

If there was anything at all to complain about it was that our stay was much too short. I am sure that Kathryn and Peter would have rectified that as well if they could have done. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they put themselves out in every way to ensure that our stay was one of the most memorable ones on the whole trip.
The accommodation was superb and top quality with plenty of thought devoted to the personal touches which really makes a difference.
Breakfasts were plentiful and wholesome and I would recommend the evening meal also if you get the chance.

All in all, what all B&Bs should aspire to. I would recommend it to everybody.

Room Tip: We had the best room in the house with magnificent views, so I would definitely recommend this.

Kathryn & Peter are excellent hosts who help make a stay here a special experience. The views from Pacific View are super, breakfasts were the best we had on our trip and the local knowledge Kathryn & Peter provided proved invaluable. Added to which the evening meal with fellow guests was a very social and enjoyable experience. We will certainly stay here if we are in the area again.
