“Excellent bed and breakfast, heavenly location, warm hosts”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We stayed at Anton and Mary's in March during a tour of the North Island. Unfortunately we had only booked two nights, and I personally think 4 or 5 nights would be better to see the whole area. Lots to see and do on the Coromandel peninisula, and the location of Anton and Marys is perfect. Anyway, the views from their home are stunning, the house is perched up on a hill (although only minutes from the beach) with views of surrounding hills and the sea.
The room we stayed in was perfect. Everything you could possibly need was in the room.
The adjoining bathroom was also of the highest quality. Both Anton and Mary are excellent hosts, and very welcoming. We found their advice and reccommendations of where to visit etc, very helpful.
Breakfast in the morning was also excellent.
They both clearly care about their business and in my opinion, having stayed in many hotels and b&bs, have got it just right, impossible to fault a thing!
Fantastic place to stay, you will not be dissappointed, unless like us you dont book to stay long enough!
Would definitely recommend, and would love to go again!

We have been there with our 3 kids. The hospitality of Anton and Mary was fantastic. The location is good, however, one of the rooms haven’t got any view from its windows. The bathroom was huge and very well- equipped. The breakfast on the balcony with the harbour view was one of our best memories from our trip to Cormandel. A television in the room would be helpful.

We stayed here one night and appreciated the bright room, the firm comfortable bed with immaculate bedding, the spacious bathroom and the kind hospitality of Anton and Mary. When Anton couldn't get through on the phone to the restaurant we wanted to eat at, he actually went out to book it!

This is a bed and breakfast in the classic mode, but none the worse for that. It is very good value and we recommend it.

A great nights bed and breakfast. We had both rooms. Very comfortable. Breakfast was great. It would have been better with a small TV in the room.

Room Tip: A nice quiet place away from town with great views.

We had a really nice stay with Mary and Anton. They looked after is wonderfully. The room was delightful as was the breakfast. We had use of their sitting room and the views were amazing. The Coromandal is a great area of NZ.

180 degree views atop of Paku hill, overlooking the estuary part of Tairua and Pauanui, it was definitely amazing. Environment was relaxing, welcoming and clean. The bed was very comfortable, one of the best I have slept in. The hosts were friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The theme was pohutukawa in the bathroom, I think every b&b should have a theme, gives it originality. Also thought the make up remover sachets were a nice touch. I will definitely return as I didn't want to leave. It was like a home away from home with someone attending to you (e.g. bed made, room tidied, and breakfast avail). It was also great value!

For those wanting to experience a real taste of New Zealand hospitality, you must visit Anton and Mary's Bed and Breakfast in the gorgeous and unique location of Tairua. The views alone from Anton and Mary's home are worth the trip. Tairua means "two tides" in Maori and we have never experienced seeing two different bodies of water at once - the estuary of the Tairua River on the one side and the stunning ocean side beach on the other. Being situated on Paku hill, Anton and Mary have at least 180 degree views of both. They invited us into their lounge and onto their deck to experience it for ourselves (even though the views from our room were good). We were also charmed by the birdlife - the call of the Tui and the visit of the quriky native quail.

Our friendly hosts provided us with a charming, cosy and comfortable room. The attention to detail was outstanding - from books, games, CDs, beach towels, umbrella, fruit, cookies and good quality tea and coffee right down to make-up remover sachets in the bathroom. The supposedly "simple" breakfast included a choice of cereals, toast, choice of spreads, yoghurt, fruit and juice, as well as plunger coffee and tea. We were more than happy with our breakfast.

We stayed in the French Room and it was spacious and very well appointed. All of the linen was high quality - lovely fluffy towels and plenty of them. The bed was made up with gorgeous white cotton bed linen. The bathroom was also large and well appointed. Everything in both the room and bathroom was scrupulously spotless.

We were attending a wedding and are thankful our friends chose such a glorious spot because we would have been ignorant of the delights of this lovely spot on the Coromandel. We will definitely visit again and are looking forward to bringing our family back to Anton and Mary's. They were so welcoming and friendly that we feel like friends after only a short stay. They definitely deserve our recommendation!
