“"This is Perfection"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

What an absolutely beautiful stay. As other reviews mention, the bed linen is the best quality ever, and the decor could not be faulted. Not only did De'arne prepare the breakfast to die for, she even allowed us to invite my son and daughter-in-law, who live locally, to join us. Now that is really going out of your way to make your guests very happy. I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. Thankyou for a very lovely stay. Adrienne & Malcolm Brown

Room Tip: There are two suites, Rome & Paris. The only difference I could see were Rome has a larger bat...

My husband and I stayed at Casa del Mare for a romantic 40th wedding anniversary...what a beautiful experience... Graham and De'anne the host and hostess with the most(est)...nothing was too much trouble, they even pre-booked a reservation at Bluebyou restaurant for us. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT from the bed linen to the DVD's supplied for an evening of incrdible belly laughs (Mrs Browns Boys), yummy brekkies The only downside was that we could only stay two nights :( Thank you guys for a stay to remember

Room Tip: Both rooms are beautiful

Casa del Mare was the perfect place for our getaway. We stayed in the Rome suite which was absolutely lovely and since we were the only guests we had the run of the guest lounge too! Breakfast in the morning was great with lots of homemade and homegrown treats. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Strangely, the thing I'll remember the most was the exquisite bed linen. You should go sleep on it!

We absolutely loved this place. It's like a little slice of Italy transplanted to one of New Zealands best beaches.

Luxuriously quiet and relaxing accommodations, and our hosts Graham and De'arne go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Almost like meeting long lost friends .

The location is great, from here you can walk to the beach, dine at one of the Papamoa restaurants, climb the nearby Papamoa hills for fantastic views and lots more.

Truly recommended.

The Casa del Mare was a wonderful place to stay. We stayed in The Rome suite and our daughter and partner in The Paris suite. Our room was elegant, with a king size bed which gave us a wonderful nights sleep. It had a completely separate bathroom, with everything you would need. The room opened out onto a delightful patio and garden. There was also a roomy lounge between the two suites with tea/coffee, plasma, DVD etc. There was as much breakfast as we wanted which included De'arne's lovely homemade museli. We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. The hosts were really accommodating and welcoming. We would have no hesitation in returning if we are in Papamoa again.

Casa del Mare was a wonderful find - a fabulous B&B tucked away in Papamoa, close to the beach. Our hosts, Graham and De'arne, were welcoming, helpful and friendly. The accommodation was immaculate with two double bedrooms off a guest lounge, gorgeous bedding, separate ensuite bathrooms with wet rooms and every possible amenity as well as a number of delightful little touches. We had a fabulous breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean. We are now trying to think of reasons to return to Papamoa so that we can stay again!
