“Our favorite B&B through our entire New Zealand trip”
Reviewed 19 January 2011

We absolutely loved it here. Gorgeous views from our balcony. The breakfast was delicious and our hosts were wonderful. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat. They gave us lots of great suggestions. This was our first three nights in New Zealand so it was nice to relax and have locals give us good ideas for the rest of our trip. They even had a guest laptop to be able to make some bookings.

Pacific View is an excellent B&B for those who want to add a bit of elegance to their accommodation and the opportunity to stay in a real "posh" home in New Zealand, where the hosts pamper you. Although the price is relatively high, and, thus, out of reach for backpackers,this would be the perfect place for mature couples who select the Coromandel to go fishing, golfing, sunbathing, bushwalking. Breakfast is sumptuous, and it has some socialising as side dish. You get to know your hosts, and, perhaps, establish a friendship. This is the beauty and the bonus coming with this B&B. Also, it was the first time where the ubiquitous claim in NZ accommodations that they are "green" and protect the environment, seemed true. You do not get little plastic containers with shampoo, conditioner etc. which add to our waste. You get real organic products, in refillable bottles. No SLS. The same applies for the ingredients in our breakfast: fresh strawberries (first time anyone treated us with them...I brought my own even in the posh Hotels, which in NZ commonly provide canned fruit...a pity!), free range eggs...all details had been accounted for. I appreciated that very much. I'm not a person who goes only to top of the range accommodations, I like to try "stables and stars". Well, Pacific View stands at the top of my "stars" in NZ, whilst Possum Lodge, in the Southern Island, is my top in the "stable" range. So, I would recommend Pacific View to artists, lovers of beauty, lovers of a bit of luxury, women (especially women who are very proud to be women), couples in honeymoon...

Kathryn and Peter are wonderful hostes and when you add that to their super home and the stunning views it makes a magical stay. If possible stay a few nights and sample Kathryn's wonderful cooking.

We enjoyed our -way to short time- in Whangamata very much. Kathryn & Peter are magnificent hosts. We were greeted with fantasitc wine and had a great conversation over which we almost missed the openining hours of the restaurants in Whangamata. When returning, Kathryn and Peter provided us with good advises for our next day trip. Peter-thanks again for guiding us to the nice lonely beach. The home is decorated with great taste and detail. Last but not least, the breakfast was the best on our entire journey. We wish we could have stayed longer.

The B & B Pacific View has a wonderful view over the Whangamata town and beach. The House and the rooms are very modern, comfortable and are decorated very lovely. The overall standard is absolutely very high. Kathryn & Peter are the best hosts that you can imagine. We had a perfect stay in the B & B. The breakfast was also absolutely perfect with a lot of choices. We felt like at home and become friends with Kathryn & Peter. We will recommend the Pacific View B & B to everyone, who prefers high service and quality, lovely details in a room and a warm personal contact to the hosts.
Thanks again to Kathryn & Peter for the very good hospitality, for the traveling advices and for the Music CD with the whispering bird sounds.
We hope that we can come back!

We came across Pacific View as we travelled around the North Island, after cancelling our much planned Southern Island trip because of the Christchurch earthquake. And how happy to find this beautiful spot and enjoy the fine hospitality of Kathryn and Peter. Being B&B proprietors ourselves we knew exactly what we hoped for - and Pacific View delivered in excess. A beautifully appointed room with fantastic views, an ample and tasty breakfast and of course the scintilating conversation, with privacy respected. We unfortunately could only stay one night but would thoroughly recommend for any length of time you have available, providing you can get a booking!

Peter & Kathryn have a beautiful home with a stunning view of town. The room was very comfortable and complete with homemade cookies, which did not last long. The WI-FI worked like a champ. Breakfast was great. The homemade muesli was excellent. Our only regret was not spending more time with Peter and Kathryn and enjoying their great house.

Thank you so much for your review and we're glad you loved our Meusli. Since your visit I have shared my secret Recipe with the lovely B&B you stayed with in Blenheim. Your visit was so short I was sorry we didn't have the time to really spoil you so we do hope you'll return to the Coromandel Peninsula again one day and when you do make sure you come and stay longer with us at Pacific View B&B. Following your visit you'll be pleased to hear we got a Four Plus Qualmark star rating. Enjoy the rest of your NZ trip. KO
