Carol was the best host ever. We enjoyed her hospitality in January 2017. The BnB had a lovely beachside location and a very comfortable room. Breakfast was amazing, lots of homemade jams and juices and a lot of other options. Carol even leant us a shovel for our trip to Hot Water Beach. Super super lovely experience, highly recommend -...

We stumbled upon this bed and breakfast place by chance because everything in matarangi was booked out. What a lucky find! Beautiful spacious rooms, a stunning location and very comfortable house to stay in with a wonderful garden. Don't tell everyone as there are only two rooms! A gracious kind hostess compliments this great accommodation. Really a lovely stay.

I stayed at Taigh Na Mara B&B for 2 nights. I really enjoyed it. Dinner prepared by Carol (the owner) for only 20 NZ$ was delicious. A peaceful beach is just 5 min walk away. I highly recommend this B&B. Stan

How do you feel, when your B&B turns into Hotel California where "you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave"? Attracted by the incredible beauty of the Coromandel Peninsula, we arrived in time to enjoy a spectacular coastal hike to be then trapped by torrential rain and storms which cut the only two roads in...

My wife and I stayed at Taigh Na Mara B&B at the start of a two-week motorcycle tour of NZ and really enjoyed it.

But, as with almost all B&Bs, the experience is...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The room was spacious and spotless with an en suite and it's own outside entrance. The bed was super comfy. All set in lovely grounds. Beautiful, quiet beach right over the road. Carol is a lovely host. Would love to return.

Very comfortable quality accommodation. Carole was welcoming and very helpful with her knowledge of the area. We opted to eat in one evening and the food was delicious. So good to stay with locals rather than boring motels. Highly recommended.
