I arrived at Seascape Villas on 5th November 2010 after a long haul flight from the UK. My hosts David and Tatiana were waiting for my arrival and welcomed me at the door. David took my luggage and Tatiana showed me to my room and I immediately felt that I had made the right choice in staying with this couple for 10 days. They gave me some time to settle in and explore my room and invited me to join them for supper and drinks. They served a 3 course meal which was absolutely delicious and was restaurant quality.
The standard of accommodation at Seascape Villas is amazing. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated. The en-suite shower room is fabulous with an excellent shower. The bed is extremely comfortable and I always had a great sleep.
Breakfast the next morning was also delicious and there was a wide choice of food available and lots of it. (there is always lots of food at every meal with these guys) and the service was again first class.
After breakfast David and Tatiana offered to drive me around Tauranga and surrounding areas to give me a feel of the place where I was visiting. They showed me where to catch buses from and gave me a timetable so I could get around easily.
My first day was absolutely amazing and I loved exploring - it was made so much easier with the information provided to me by my hosts. After a day exploring I arrived back at the Villa at about 5.30 to find more guests had arrived and I was immediately invited into their company, offered a snack and a glass of wine. I was staying for dinner that evening and again the quality and amount of food on offer was excellent.
I stayed with David and Tatiana for 10 days from which I sampled a wide range of excellent food, great hospitality and some excellent company. They are meant to be in the hospitality business and have had the most interesting lives to date and their stories are amazing to listen to.
Nothing was too much trouble - they even did my washing! Tatiana was like a sister and David was the long suffering husband who had to listen to us talk fashion and shoes. (He loved it really)
I met some great people when staying here and have left New Zealand with some excellent memories and consider David and Tatiana to be great friends. I have told everyone about my stay at Seascape Villas and one lady on the plane back to the UK even asked me for details of the B & B (from which I gladly provided)
If you are travelling to Tauranga or surrounding areas on business or pleasure for 1 night or more I suggest you give this place serious consideration. You will not be disappointed and I intend to return in the future.
(I could say loads more about this place but I was there 10 days! David and Tatiana are like family now and I miss them very dearly)
