“We wanted for nothing. The accommodation more than lived up to our expectations and the hosts were excellent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

From the moment Peter and Kathryn greeted us we knew we had made the right choice. The thoughtful little extra touches were very much appreciated, especially the chocolate fudge brownies left in our room each evening and the fishing magazines for my husband. The location is a little way from the beach (two minutes by car) but this was not a problem and the views from our room were spectacular. We wanted for nothing, will certainly recommend to our friends and would love to visit again

Room Tip: The King Pacific room is the best for views but the other two rooms were great too

Thank you so much for your review and for letting us know that you really enjoyed your stay with us. I sometimes think that I might go overboard to make sure everything is just right for our guests so it's always great to get the feedback. We love to spoil and indulge our guests and most of all we want to make sure our guests have the very best experience possible and to make sure our guests don't forget Pacific View in a hurry!!

Good luck with everything for the future and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Best wishes
Kathryn & Peter

Just returned from an amazing week in New Zealand. We had the opportunity to stay at the Pacific View B&B during our stay. It was amazing. The views were stunning. The hosts were very warm and welcoming. The room was clean and luxurious. Breakfast was scrumptious and filling. Kathryn and Peter were very helpful in providing information and pamphlets of things to do in the area. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcomed in their home. It is the place to stay if you are ever in Whangamata, New Zealand!!! and if you are on the North Island it is worth the trip to Whangamata just to stay here!!

Room Tip: The room at the top!!!

Many thanks Trish for taking the time to write your review of Pacific View and for your very generous compliments. We can never be complacent in the service we provide and consequently really appreciate it when our guests give us feedback via Trip Advisor. We just love it when our guests tell us how good it was. Congratulations on being our very special 100th reviewer and we look forward to seeing you back here again soon.

Whatever your plans for visiting New Zealand, you must include this fabulous B&B. Wonderfully warm welcome from Kathryn and Peter when we arrived set our stay off to a great start. The house is beautiful, inside and out and with views to die for. Our room on the top floor was just perfect, so many thoughtful extras. Breakfasts were special - melt in the mouth pancakes our favourite. We had the loan of beach chairs/umbrellas, offers of lift to restaurants, advice on what to see, driving directions. Nothing was any trouble to either of them. The bar has been set extremely high with this B&B.

This is Kathryn and Peter's home and we felt so comfortable there, we did not want to leave. We felt like part of the family! They both work extremely hard to make sure that every guest has a memorable (for all the right reasons) stay. Thank you so much for making our stay so fantastic.

We would go back to this amazing B&B in a heartbeat (sure it's a long way from the UK, but what the heck!) We intend to return to New Zealand at some point and would make a specific journey to stay at Pacific View. Shame that 5 stars is the highest rating available!

Wow Pat, you have paid us some wonderful compliments for which we are very grateful. During our 2012/2013 season we were blessed (yet once again) to host some truly lovely guests, yourselves included of course. That's what Peter and I love about Home Hosting - we get to meet some wonderful people from parts of the world.

We can only hope that all our guests enjoyed their experience at Pacific View as much as you did. We look forward to seeing you back here again soon. Kind regards and thank you so much for your review. Kathryn & Peter

We had the pleasure of staying with Kathyrn and Peter and our only regret is that we didnt stay long enough .A superb house with many extras for their guests. We would highly recommend this wonderful B&B.

Kathryn and Peter have set new standards for B&Bs. Prior to our stay at Pacific View we had read the ‘rave reviews’ on trip advisor and hence we came with the very highest expectations. We certainly weren’t disappointed as we enjoyed exceptional and classy hosting, wonderful attention to detail, amazing gourmet breakfast, beautiful accommodation, tasteful décor and views to die for! We could not fault this experience (and we are critical B&B owners ourselves) and encourage others to experience Pacific View. This is as good as it gets!

Kathryn and Peter are generous hosts. We arrived to the warmest of welcomes, noted the many extra nice touches (fresh flowers, home-made cake, chocolates and port wine in our room, wine and nibbles on arrival, immaculately clean rooms, amazing breakfast menu, a wealth of information and everything you could ever want to support your holiday). We quickly learned that the extensive breakfast menu was more than matched by gourmet cooking, splendid service and loving presentation. As we gazed out the window and enjoyed fine dining and stunning elevated views, we knew that this place would remain in our memories for many years to come.

As hosts they anticipated our every need and provided us with all the local knowledge we needed. They invested time ensuring our interests were met and we left knowing that excellence now had new meaning – it can be found at Pacific View B&B.

We look forward to renewing our acquaintance in the future!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a stunning elevated view - you won't be disappointed!

The reviews say it all. Our one-night stay gave us the opportunity to experience this exceptional accommodation. The house, with its lovely views, is very comfortable, and the breakfast delicious, but the feature which truly made our stay memorable was the warm hospitality of Kathryn and Peter. You won't regret staying here.
