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.

David and Tatiana's place is modern and impeccably clean. It's one of the most warm and well insulated yet ventilated places I've stayed on my entire trip in this country. The room has a small walk-in closet, shower and bath, super super comfy bed (soft yet still firm), sheets were flawlessly white and smooth (I'm telling you 5star standards), and... More

We stayed with David and Tatiana over Labour weekend 2014, and we have to say that it was the most comfortable and well appointed b&b we have stayed in, anywhere in N,Z, Europe, or the U.K. Both our hosts were friendly as well as hospitable,and breakfasts were all anyone could want. The highlight of the visit was Tatiana's Russian dinner... More

I've never stayed in a B & B before so was a bit apprehensive, that was, until we met our hosts Tatiana and David. Nothing was too much for them and they were so welcoming. The bed was very comfortable and everything was spotless. I would recommend this place highly to anybody thinking about staying in Tauranga.

Such a wonderful place to stay - David & Tatiana were the perfect hosts. Great breakfast. Highly recommend the Russian pancakes. Lovely bedding & a fabulous nights sleep. Can totally understand why they are achieving great reviews and looking forward to hopefully revisiting. Thanks again for a lovely few days.

Visiting family in Tauranga, my wife and I were looking for accommodation close to where she resided...in the suburb of Matua....a 15 minute drive from downtown. We were surprised to find this little Gem just a couple of streets away in the adjoining suburb. We were even more surprised when we arrived at Seascape Villa for a three night stay.... More

We stopped for one night at Seascape during a quick tour around the north island. I am so glad we made this our Tauranga stopover!

This house is in a residential area of the city, and it's a quick drive to the water, a peaceful mineral spa, and some cute little restaurants. The hosts were helpful, friendly, and generous with advice and their time. I had a delicious breakfast with them (it was really nice to have company while I ate!), The room was immaculate... More
