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... More

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 More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

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... More

This is a truly superb place to stay, whether it be for 1 night or for 1 month. I have been staying at 5-star hotels worldwide due to my previous job. What I had here is beyond my expectations of what a Bed and Breakfast is capable of doing. My son and I stayed here in Sep 2013 for 3... More
