My wife and I and our two good fiends began our NZ holiday in Coromandel. After 24+ hours of flying to get to this beautiful country, there was no more relaxing place to unwind and ease blissfully into vacation mide. Lorraine and Bill were excellent and attentive hosts who helped us out by suggesting things to do, making arrangements, and... More

Wonderful location, right on the beach at Kuaotunubay bay. Superb views from the bedroom window. Bill & Lorraine were perfect hosts, helpful in every way and produce an excellent breakfast. The B&B is appointed to a very high standard, with very comfortable beds etc. we would love to stay again?

Very friendly hosts. Stunning views from the room. Excellent breakfast. The perfect B&B!! The only disadvantage is that the B&B is not very easy to find. However, once you are there.. this is easily forgotten.. ;) For travellers: take care: the B&B is not in Whitianga but in Kuaotunu.

Bill and Lorraine have created a wonderful home in the Coromandel and it was definitely the wow factor for us four Brits touring New Zealand. The vast window views and the breakfast deck outside are breathtaking, all enhanced by a well thought out garden and local mature plantings. We stayed in the well appointed studio and our friends in a... More

A truly wonderful place to stay. Our room was spacious, beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean, from which we enjoyed breathtaking views across the ocean. There is a big, bright open plan aspect to the property yet it retains a very cosy ambiance. However, the overiding memory we will take with us is the warmth and generosity of Bill & Lorraine,...

This is a fabulous boutique b&b. The owners are terrific hosts, the food and rooms superb. Location is wonderful on hillside overlooking the beach and bay which can be reached by walking through the beautiful garden. We would have loved to stay longer here but our itinerary did not allow it.
