“Amazing views and considerate hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

On our third visit to New Zealand but first visit to the Coromandel Peninsula, we spent three happy days at Anton & Mary's spacious, beautifully furnished and very clean accommodation. We had a bedroom, living room with TV and dining area, bathroom, kitchen, plus a deck with picnic table for outdoor breakfasts when the weather is good. The view across the bay is gorgeous, even when we could hardly see it during a storm. Anton and Mary have a beautiful garden in their rather steep hillside property, but there are handrails in appropriate places to help get up or down the steps. We'd recommend this place to anyone who wants a few days in very comfortable surroundings with great views.

Our first B&B in New Zealand and if they are all like this then we will be delighted. Anton and Mary are lovely hosts offering unobtrusive geniality and a genuine welcome. Our room was spotless and sumptuously equipped and the bathroom contained every amenity and soft towels. Don't think twice about staying here if you are in the vicinity. Weather not really up to breakfast on the terrace but excellent nonetheless.

What a great place to stay! My husband and I went for a couple of days and had a wonderful stay with Anton & Mary. The room was lovely & clean with wonderful views. The breakfast was delicious & made extra special by getting to sit out on the deck looking out over the stunning view. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone.

Had a great night's stay with Anton and Mary. The rooms are downstairs and very quiet with a great view from Paku Hill. Couldn't of asked for more in terms of amenities. Breakfast was excellent and had stunning views. The weather was great despite it being winter and would recommend staying with Anton and Mary in a heartbeat!

Mary greeted us on arrival and showed us our room, we had chosen a light and airy room with patio doors so we could come and go without disturbing anyone. The bathroom was separate, but for our sole use.

The breakfast was served upstairs so there were super views from here out over the sea and surrounding area. The location was handy for touring the Coromandel, although Tairua itself has little in the way of decent restaurants.

Thank you taking time to your review our Bed & Breakfast. We appreciate your feedback. Regarding the lack of decent restaurants at the time you stayed in Tairua-unfortunately two of the main restaurants in town which were operated by the same owner had both closed unexpectedly the week before leaving the town with only two to choose from during February which is very unusual during the summer season.. These both re-opened with new owners within a couple of weeks.

A lovely place to stay, the hosts are very friendly and the location is superb - an amazing view over Pauanui, the Tairua river and the ocean. The room was lovely, as was the bathroom, and both felt a bit luxurious without a hefty price tag. There were extra towels and toiletries in the bathroom and makeup remover wipes too - very handy. It was all spotlessly clean. Would definitely reccommend a stay here.

We were made very welcome by Anton and Mary at this our first accommodation on arrival in New Zealand. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean and the views from the house are spectacular. Mary served up a wonderful breakfast and our hosts were very helpful with tips on where to visit.
