We stayed 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. David and Tatiana are the perfect hosts, from the beginning to the end. Everything was so good, it is difficult to describe. The welcome from David with all the informations we needed was in a short time explained. The map of the area he gave us, was very handy... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay with David and Tatiana at Seascape Villa in Tauranga. The property is located in a quiet residential area, and the entire house, including our room with en suite, was immaculate and tastefully furnished. A highlight of our visit was sitting outside on the patio and drinking a glass of wine with David and... More

Best part? Great hosts -- one can tell that David was in the hospitality industry, as every last detail has been thought of. He and Tatiana truly enjoy what they do and having people in their home. While we are new to B&B's, we have experienced only one other anywhere near this quality. It was restful to stay here, and... More

On every level this B & B scores higher than I have experienced before. Nothing was too much trouble, everything to make our stay more comfortable, enjoyable etc was offered, including complementary drinks between 5 and 6pm. Their hospitality created an ambience where guests interacted more than usual in a friendly way and the breakfast was superb

This hotel was the best we ever stayed in in New Zealand. The house was a gem, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, comfortable, welcoming. The host and the hostess were the most interesting and delightful people we met in this country. The breakfast was amazing, with more than one could ask for. We would definitely stay there again just to experience... More

Stayed here for one night on the way to Auckland. The accommodation is modern, very clean & comfortable with lovely bedding and furnishings. It's only 5 minutes drive from the centre of Tauranga where you can find a number of restaurants and bars along the waterfront. We can recommend Volaro where we had one of the best meals of our...

My partner and I stayed one night here recently. The reviews were excellent so I was a little taken aback when my email communications with the owner seemed to be a little brusque and almost rude. I was inquiring about the option to have dinner in and when I asked what was typically served as I was pregnant and had... More

Group stayed one night and we could not fault either the accommodation or the hospitality provided by David and Tatiana. The rooms were spotlessly clean and everything provided. The breakfast was the equal of any thing at a 5 star hotel buffet breakfast. A great find and a stay which wss the equal to any in NZ.
