Superb location. Our modern sunny well appointed home has great sea views and is only 30 second’s from the beach. We are close to the action yet far enough away to be quiet. Our superb location makes a great start to a memorable holiday. We are here to help you to enjoy your stay and our locality. All 3 bedrooms have their own bathroom.

Jim and Lorraine Robertson have a very nice B&B, basically on the beach in the shadow of Mount Maunganui. Jim prepared an excellent breakfast on the upper floor of their house with a view of the ocean. At night we could hear the waves lapping at the shore. It's a 45-second walk to the beach and, if you are an early riser, the sunrise will meet you. Our room was spacious and the en suite bathroom up to par. If you are travelling down the east coast of the North Island, I recommend spending a night with Jim and Lorraine.

What a delightful place to stay whilst visiting The Mount. Spotless accommodation, excellent breakfast of fresh fruit etc, private access to the beach and lovely hosts in Jim & Lorraine. Location wise, the Beachside is located outside the town centre with limited bars and restaurants within easy walking distance but taxis are readily available. Sitting having breakfast with the other guests looking out across the beach to the ocean was just idyllic, we really wanted to stay longer. Thanks Jim & Lorraine for a lovely few days at Beachside.

We stayed in the "Rimu" room on the ground floor - it's plenty big enough although the bathroom is a bit on the small side. There's also a small patio area. The property is the middle one of three on a plot with direct access (no roads to cross) to the beach. The shared guest lounge where the excellent breakfast is taken is on the third floor with a balcony offering a sea view. The only downside from our point of view was that the walk into Mt. Maunganui was a bit of a struggle after dinner.

Jim and Lorraine’s bed & breakfast is a simply home away from home by the sea. Situated a minutes stroll from Mount Maunganui beach right out of their back gate, we were able to hear the waves crashing as we slept - pure bliss. Our room was comfortable clean and cosy, which is exactly what we needed after a busy few days in Queenstown. Jim greeted us and made us feel instantly at home. Nothing was too much trouble. Their is no sea view from the bedrooms, but the guest lounge looks out over the beach - a wonderful view whilst tucking into Jim’s home cooked breakfast accompanied by a selection of fresh fruit, cereals, juices and as much tea and coffee as you can drink! We were even invited into their lounge to watch the international cricket on the TV during our stay! Make sure you find the time to climb Mount Maunganui itself! A steep walk but the views are incredible. Borrow one of Jim and Lorraine’s boogie boards to enjoy some of the surf too! As travellers from the UK, you would struggle to find a better summer holiday/seaside spot anywhere in Europe. My only complaint would be that 2 days and 2 nights wasn’t quite enough to soak up everything ‘The Mount’ had to offer.

This place to stay was absolutely wonderful - we will be back!! Right on Mount Maunganui beach. Welcome at the door as we parked our car on the property. Cleanliness of the whole place made us feel very comfortabe as did very soothing toning of furnishings in our room & ensuite with super white bedding & towels. Filtered water, easily accessible free wifi & private courtyard for resting & contemplating!. Breakfast choices taken care of night before, financial matters taken care of quietly & no surprises here. Guest lounge one floor upstairs very accommodating with many choices of teas & coffee with oh-so-oh-so-comfortable seating. Excellent very full breakfasts on third level of house with very fresh fruit salad, home made bread, mueslies & coffee to die for!! as well as the view of Mount Maunganui beach & ships on the ocean Very peacefully located. Close to Mount Maunganui township & a walk around /up Mt Maunganui. We decided there was nothing that could be improved with this B & B. Such friendly, good-humoured, helpful but not over-pushy Hosts. We will certainly recommend Beachside to anyone coming from overseas or to our NZ friends/family. Thank you Jim & Lorraine for coming into our lives.
