“Superb place to stay”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

The beachside bnb, is hosted by 2 great people, Jim and Lorraine made us feel most welcome, it was like staying with family.
The room and the service was second to none.
We would recommend this place to any one staying around the Mount area.

We spent one night at the Beachside Bed and Breakfast and so wish we could have stayed for much longer!
This is a gorgeous place. Jim and Lorraine responded very quickly to our email requests and meeting them was delightful. This home is very tranquil and quiet and in a perfect location to head to the beach - a few minutes walk down a path. They have created a beautiful guest lounge on the top floor with a deck that allows beautiful views, you have access to a kitchen here, you can watch movies or sit and read and this is room full of light in the morning for where you can enjoy your beautiful cooked breakfast.

We would love to explore this area more and if we do we will want to stay at the Beachside B&B.

Room Tip: You do need a car to stay here as it probably is not so easy to walk from the bus stop with luggage.

Hi Cucina,
Thanks for your extensive review. Regarding your points about car and bus. If guests arrive by bus or at the local airport we offer free pick-up and drop-off. The bus stop is only approximately 150 metres away from our B&B.

It is just a great place to stay with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. You can actually say it's only a stones throw away from the beach. The best breakfast we had while on our three week holiday. I can't praise Jim and Lorraine highly enough.

Great B&B. Location is a stone throw away from the beach, body surf boards available for guest use. Room very clean and comfortable. Guest lounge available for use with small balcony, great sea views. Breakfast excellent, fresh fruit, orange juice, home made bread, cereals, full cooked breakfast.
Owners Jim and Lorriane make everyone feel really wecome and offer advise on local activities. Can't recommend this B&B enough.

broke our B&B V-card and stayed at the Beachside B&B last night. Jim and Lorraine are AMAZING people and they have a lovely home that is just steps from the beach. We are fit, so we walked to Mount Maunganui and up the mountain....grabbed a bite to eat in town and walked back. It was a great workout and felt good after our loooong flight from Canada.
If you aren't into walking too much, there is a bus that'll drop you off right near their place.
Overall, it was an amazing start to our trip and we'd stay there again in a heart beat.
The breakfast was deeeeelish and kept us well fuelled for our drive to our next stop...Rotorua.

My husband and I were booked into the Beachside B and B for one night as we travelled from Mercury Bay to Rotorua. If we had only known how super the accommodation would be and how beautiful the beaches are we would certainly have planned to stay longer. We loved our long walks on the pristine beaches and our morning circuit of Mount Maunganui was a very memorable experience.
As we we packing to leave, we had a disaster when a full bottle of red wine fell on the carpet of our room and broke. Jim and Lorraine could not have been more gracious in dealing with the spill which happened during the busy breakfast period. We were so sorry to have caused this problem but despite everything, Jim still served us a delicious breakfast . Truly, these are amazing hosts!
We would give the highest recommendation of the Beachside B and B to anyone looking for a restful place to stay in a very well run establishment in a superb location.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rimu room which had a nice outdoor sitting area and very easy access to the beach.
