This was our second stay with Jim & Lorraine. The B&B is perfectly situated by the beach with great views from upstairs. Both Jim & Lorraine made us very welcome and served up a great breakfast. The cost is very reasonable, in fact I think they undercharge for what they offer. We will be back.

Thanks Colin & Janet for your second review. We enjoyed having you stay with us again and talking shop! I agree that our price is good for what we offer but the great thing about that is that our guests keep on coming back for more of the same (:- Wishing you both a wonderful B&B season for the year...

A great place to stay. It was not busy so we were upgraded to the largest room with ensuite and direct access to the beach. This was our last stop before going home and we were delighted to enjoy the sunset on the beach followed by an excellent East Indian meal that was walking distance. Jim and Lorraine were amazing...

If you like b&b Beachside is the place for you. Jim is a most perfect host nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are superb. Views from the Guest Lounge will not be bettered anywhere. Jim offers excellent advice on what to see and where to eat. He advised us to walk up the Mount - a bit strenuous but well...

Thanks for your great review Alan. The walk to the top of the mount is certainly worth the effort on a clear day. Views to die for! Not so many tourists visit the Quarry Park as it isn't so well advertised as some of the other attractions. Best wishes Jim & Lorraine

Jim & Lorraine provide a bed and breakfast experience you will never forget. We have travelled the whole of New Zealand and nowhere has come close to Beachside. Welcomed with a smile, a cup of tea and home baked blueberry muffins; bliss. A large spacious room with a big comfy bed and a patio with your own sun loungers and...

Our room was large and very comfortable, and going to sleep with the sound of ocean waves was blissful. Climbing the stairs to have breakfast was rewarded by excellent food and a great view out over the ocean, with binoculars on hand to view the passing ships. A short drive to Mt. Maunganui followed by a walk around it is...

Jim & Lorraine are the perfect B&B hosts. Very welcoming and couldn't do enough for their guests - even rising early to prepare breakfast for me. Everything is included - even very good wi-fi at no extra charge. Location is alongside the huge expanse of sandy beach, with plenty of surf-boarders to add interest. Off-road parking outside the front door....

A second opportunity to stay at the wonderful home of John and Lorraine this month (January 2014) arose from an invitation to a special friends 50th birthday. This b&b was our immediate choice of play to stay. Booked into a ground floor room with ensuite, our stay (although only 1 night) was extremely comfortable and relaxing. Access to the beach...
