“Best B & B ever!”
Reviewed August 3, 2008

We had not booked a place to stay in the BOP after visiting relatives in Katikati and were pleasantly surprised when we found Beachside which was wonderful, clean and had the friendliest, most hospitable hosts we'd ever met -- it really was like being welcomed into a friend's house. The breakfast was fantastic and we loved sharing afternoon tea with our hosts and enjoyed their company tremendously. Can't wait to bring our friends and relatives back to this place. Fantastic value for all age groups esp considering the many facilities (close to beach, toaster, kettle, tea/coffee, TV, DVD, radio, courtyard, etc) and that there are DVDs to watch in the guest lounge.

"I was greeted by the hosts Jim and Lorraine in the most sincere and warm manner. The property is literally above the beach and access is seconds away. This was very important to me as part of my holiday experience was to be lulled asleep by the sound of the surf. I was not disappointed. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice but what did it for me was freshly prepared fruit salad, home baked bread and a hearty fare of grilled bacon and eggs. I loved relaxing in the seperate guests' living room overlooking the ocean. It is here you can enjoy refreshments (complimentary teas and coffee), watch DVD's, listen to music or read and just chill. My room was very clean and comfortable and I had my own bathroom. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Beachside B&B, the location, attention to detail and friendly, helpful hosts made for a very happy and enjoyable stay."

This was one of the best, if not the best B&B of our whole 6 week tour of NZ. Our ensuite room was spacious,comfortable and spotlessly clean. Facilities in addition to the ensuite included TV,radio,DVD player with discs provided and our own private patio with loungers. The property which is very modern has direct access to the beach and is but a five minute drive from the Mount . Hosts Jim and Lorraine gave us a very warm welcome and were very helpful with things to do and places to eat. An added bonus of Beachside is the comfortable guests lounge on the top floor equiped with fridge, TV, tea and coffee making equipment and balcony with its stunning views overlooking the sea. It is here that the hosts serve a delicious breakfast both continental and cooked with lots of homemade goodies. Jim is also an expert coffee maker and makes an excellent flat white. Our only regret was having only allocated one night here but I have no hesitation in reccommending Beachside to anyone looking for accommodation in this lovely area of North Island

To other potential guests reading this review. We do advertise on our web page the distance our B&B is from downtown Mt Maunganui (three and a half kilometres). We have a high pressure water system, so you can be assured of a good shower. In the two ajoining rooms we have asked our guests to if possible shower before 10.30pm and after 7am. We have also recently completely renovated the bathroom in question, and the noise level has reduced substantially.
