Charming hosts with ample local knowledge to share, good location in walking distance of Whitianga, spotless accommodation with flexibility and access to kitchen/washing facilities - perfect! Buckets and spades lent for Hot Water Beach, and a very comfortable bed, great night's sleep. A special thank you deserved as we left clothing in the wardrobe and this was very kindly forwarded...

From start to finish Verne and Joan were so cheery and informative. They have a wealth of knowledge of the surrounding area to help us maximise our time up in the Coromandel and even loaned us a shovel and bath towels for going to hot water beach. Room was clean and comfortable with nice communal kitchen area which meant we...

Booked a stay for two here through Booking.com after reading good ratings. I'm glad to say these were correct i.e. this is a good B&B. The owners were very helpful and friendly. They even moved their car out of the garage so we could store our kayaks. Thanks. :) Lovely to meet you both. The premises were new looking and...

From beginning to end our stay was fantastic.

This B&B is located on a quiet street in a regular neighborhood. It's a few blocks from the beach and a lengthy walk to town. The hosts are great and the cooked to order breakfast was very good. That said, our room was very small, the walls are very thin, and the only TV is in the communal kitchen/sitting area....

Alright, so I am writing this review not even one night into it. A little back story, my friend and I have been staying in hostels, and found this property by accident when all other accommodations near hot water beach were sold out or too expensive. First, we arrive and Vern (owner/point of contact) has all these maps and recommendations...
