David and Tatiana have built up a magnificent place to stay. It was beautifully furnished. The room was spotless and the bed very, very comfortable. Breakfast was simply great and everything was done to provide you with an outstanding experience. The liquid refreshment hour was a lovely touch allowing us to talk and relax. Tauranga is very fortunate indeed to... More

David and Titiana were very gracious hosts during our overnight stay. They were very knowledgeable about the area and offered useful suggestions. Their home is absolutely sparkling clean. It was kindly suggested we remove our shoes by another guest who noticed we hadn't (no, we hadn't been stomping through the mud). The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom exceptionally clean....

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
