Our room was great, clean, and private the only thing if you wanted to watch TV you have to lie on the bed. Kim & Selena were very friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was amazing and our fur baby was very happy.

Absolutely awesome. Comfortable, clean, good brekkie and the nicest people Kim and Selena with their dogs. Everything was clean and nice. Can do with a heater on cold rainy nights and better lighting in the bathroom for shaving. Not like the regular smelly dinghy pet friendly places . I stayed in the Shambala suit and will go back

Tantarra is the "Hidden Tropical Gem" in Warners Bay. Honestly they are, the full package. New Renovations giving more privacy with own entrances to every room. Great value for money. Amazing breakfasts around the pool or in their serene tranquil home. Refreshing swimming pool with lights at night. Pet friendly, great bonus. Close to the Bay. Comfortable clean rooms. But...

Don't be put off as this property is listed as a B&B it is one of the nicest places we've stay at. The room is immaculate and full of character. The pool area is amazing and peaceful and the hosts are helpful and friendly.

This B/B is tucked away amongst tropical trees, Budda statues and private pool ,5 mins from Lake Macquarie Warners bay and 15 mins from Newcastle. Usually the host provides an abundant breakfast but was away this time giving the guests a $25 voucher to a well known cafe providing good quality food, which looked out onto the Lake. A peaceful...

This place is great, the hosts are lovely and the breakfast is amazing. The place itself has three rooms we stayed in The Room which was a good size, it was very clean. Outside is fully fenced, if you have a furbaby this is the place to stay as the dogs can play in a fenced off area near the...

We stayed 2 nights in the studio with our fur baby, the rooms were spotless and beautifully decorated. The Breakfast menu was brilliant and the food to die for!
