After Auckland,our first bed and breakfast stay in NZ, and what a start. Bill and Lorraine could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and the view from our room, over the garden to the beach, was magical.Morning swims in the Pacific, followed by sumptious breakfasts on the deck overlooking the beach, were the perfect way to start the day....

During our 4 weeks in New Zealand, we were privileged to stay in 3 lodges which we rate as excellent and Kuaotunu Lodge was definitely one of these. The house is immaculate, yet homely, the view as stunning as you could hope to find (with your own little patio area from which to enjoy it) and the owners Lorraine and... More

We stayed here for two nights, and what a lovely place it was. Lorraine and Bill were the most gracious, helpful, hospitable hosts you could want to meet. The room was lovely, with a stunning view and access to an amazing garden. A nearby beach was the best swimming beach we found in NZ. Our cooked breakfast was excellent and... More

Bill and Lorraine were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome in their home. The standard of accommodation was excellent and the view from our room stunning - Pacific rollers and expansive deserted sandy beaches with nesting dotterels and other sea birds. We loved the attention to detail, the beautiful flower on the bed, the home-made cakes and biscuits... More

We spent two nights at the Kuaotunu Bay lodge where we had a wonderful welcome and a lot of good advice about where to go and now to get there, plus the peaches Lorraine picked on her peach tree herself and left by our door ! Bill and Lorraine were adorable to us. The room we had is more like... More

Sadly our two days in December to the Coromandel Peninsula were spoilt by very wet weather. If it is nice though this is a lovely place to stay with super views overlooking the sea and a patio where you could enjoy the same. The room was not the most luxurious in our trip round B & B's in New Zealand... More

We spent ages searching through the various websites for what we thought would be the ideal place to finish our... More

Lorraine and Bill were perfect hosts during our 3 night stay in November 2014. This was the first home based stay for us during our 3 week tour and it set a very high standard for those which followed. We were made to feel very welcome and the wide local knowledge they shared with us meant that we were able... More
