Stayed here for one night on our way back to Christchurch. Received a warm welcome on arrival to this fantastic house which overlooks the bay. Very nice communal living room complete with sky tv, dining table, small kitchen area, dvd library and fabulous views of the sea. Our room was en suite and very comfortable and warm again with sea...

My husband & I stayed here in Feb 2014. We had a lovely downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom. There was a large guest lounge with tea & coffee making facilities & TV. Bedroom & lounge both had view of bay with harbour beyond. Good breakfast (Gluten & dairy free for me) & friendly host. Spotlessly clean throughout.

Excellent room in conveniently situated B&B with good sea views. The breakfast was superb; the whole place was very clean and spacious. Rosemary was the perfect hostess. Easy walk to the restaurants in Timaru.

We had a wonderful three night stay at Pleasant View. Our hosts Rosemary and Ian made us very welcome. The whole place is spotlessly clean with everything any traveller would want.

We had a most welcoming and comfortable stay with Rosemary and Ian. Good location to walk into town and with lovely views from our double aspect king room. This is the one we would recommend. The lounge and breakfast facilities were fine for us with plenty of room and good self-service facilities. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice... More

Would highly recommend a stay, with pleasant hosts and fantastic view to Timaru. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk into Timaru and also the shorter walk around the small headland where Pleasant View is situated. The best room is the one which overlooks the Bay but there is also a visitor lounge (fully equipped) which also overlooks the Bay.

We stayed in the King room with a nice view. There are only 2 rooms in this property. The set up is a little different to other motels we stayed in NZ as the tea, coffee, kettle etc were all situated outside the rooms in the shared lounge. This was fine for us as the other guests arrived late so... More

Well, we had the King room with its expansive picture windows. Space, I thought, but would it be warm enough for this somewhat cold-blooded northerner? It was so cosy! My better half who knows about these things said "double glazing" and built to high specs. And so it was. That hurdle over, would it be as peaceful as it should... More

We booked this b and b, requesting a room with a view. We were shown into the huge lounge/ dining room with absolutely panoramic views of Caroline Bay over to Timaru. After some confusion we were shown to our room... A miniscule room at the back of the house overlooked by neighbours. Amazingly, Rosemary then showed us the only other... More

We stayed two nights at Pleasant View, and couldn't have been happier. Welcomed by Rosemary and Ian into a beautiful place, with amazing views over Caroline Bay.
