I enjoyed my brief stay here. It is extremely close to the city and an easy stroll to dinner. The hosts were lovely and had a good chat over breakfast even though they had a full house. The home made bread has that 5% magic and was a great start to the day. Nice touches. The room i was in... More

I booked this accommodation as I had a conference in Tauranga and I considered all alternatives to be ridiculously expensive. From first contact the owners of this gem were wonderful. I can't speak highly enough of the fantastic but friendly service offered (even though when I first enquired the owners were out of the country, but still they responded). We... More

We have just spent two nights in this beautifully restored B&B, in the deluxe garden view room. There is a seperate guest lounge and breakfast room that is so warm and inviting just like the hosts Kevin and Lois. The yummy continental breakfast consists of home made bread, fresh fruit salad, cereals, yoghurt, a variety of toasted breads and condiments,... More

The house is beautiful, relaxing lounge with a warm fire in the evening, beautiful views, walk into town, rooms have everything you need, breakfast is great, including homemade bread fresh every morning.

We stayed one night in the aroha room - such a friendly welcome, just what we like - a relaxed owner and other longer-term guests who were very friendly, hanging out in the big living room making the place feel like a home. Two big friendly cats to play with and a big garden to explore with beautiful views out... More

We only stayed overnight, in an excellent room over the garage, very comfortable, clean and warm, an adequate bathroom ensuite. No tv or coffee/tea making facilities in the room, but wireless internet that was a little patchy at times. The house is quite large with a common lounge/tv area and kitchen if you want to make a drink or meal.... More

I stayed here with a friend while traveling through NZ. Was so much more than what I was expecting. The twin 'Fantail' room was a little snug, but the quaintness and the rest of the house more than made up for it. The living rooms were spacious, the kitchen simply amazing, and Memphis (our hostess) was extremely welcoming. There were... More

Memphis makes you feel at home right away. My daughter and I had a twin room with a shared bathroom on the first floor. Everything was always very clean. Our room had an an ocean view, and right outside our door was a porch area that faced the ocean with a table and two chairs. The shared living area has... More

We fell in love with this charming little place the minute we stepped into it. The rooms were spotlessly clean and each room has a different theme. There is a common kitchen and living room for all share. Kitchen is huge enough for more than 6 people to use at the same time. Location wise, it is perfect. Within walking... More
