We were greeted by Eve, the hilarious, very personable hostess. We succeeded in not calling your husband Adam! His name is Alan - sorry Alan! Beautiful home, centrally located, great views, above all - great hosts. Informative, cheerful, GREAT breakfasts! Lovely cheese platter with a bottle of wine on arrival - which didn't last long!

Immaculate, cozy, comfortable and tasty! Eve and Allen had the most gracious hospitality from the the meet and greet with wine and cheese to the delicious farewell breakfast. The rooms are super clean and comfortable. Easy access to the major sites on the peninsula.

Beautiful modern room, large and fully-equipped, with a lovely decoration. But most of all, wonderful hosts. Eve and Alan are charming, warm people who will you feel very comfortable. They know their city and region, for sure, and will give you plenty of tips to make the most of your trip!

We were greeted by Eve and she provided a welcome cup of tea, also a cheese platter accompanied by a bottle wine which we unfortunately, did not drink.. The beds were comfortable but the room was a little cramped for our large amount of luggage.There was no television, but there was one in the little lounge for visitors use. WiFi... More

A good "meet and greet" with Eve and a very welcome cup of tea after our fight from Tokyo. Room had all you needed with personal touches but looked out into the garden and not of the harbour. The sitting room with TV, hi-fi etc was home-from-home even down to fighting over the controller. Lots of options with breakfast including... More

We should have stayed longer than two nights. Coromandel is a lovely area. It was worth the 2 hour ride to travel on Barry's Driving Creek Railway but there are lovely things to see close by like Hot Water Beach. The two rooms at the front do not really have a view since they are on the ground floor. The... More

We only had one night at this lovely B&B but really enjoyed our stay. Eve was very welcoming and the room was great. Breakfast was very good and we got some helpful information regarding our onward journey. Its a lovely area with lots of things to do so one day is not enough.

Our stay was about a week into our holiday and we were amazed when we asked to use the washer and Eve offered to do our wash. Next day it was folded on our bed ready for the next week. What a treat not to spend time doing laundry while on an extended vacation. The breakfast were some of the... More

The owner, Eve, made us feel so welcome, almost like we were family. It was our first B&B experience and she spoilt us with her cooking talents and her generosity and she gave us very valuable advice for visiting the area. Would love to return.
