The view from this B&B is just amazing! Located on the beach, it is one of the most beautiful views that you might be able to get. However, I think that hosts Gordon and Diana are even able to top that view! They are so friendly and make you feel at home immediately. You can ask them anything and they...

Responding to such a great review is humbling, yet it should not be as we both try to make our guests welcome and on arriving we tell them that this is their home as long as they stay with us. We do try to respond to all requests and if we are not able to, we say so. Again thank...

The location was good being located on Simpsons beach. The room was fantastic with little touches that make the difference. Like chocolates in the bedroom at night and fresh cakes each day. Our hosts Gordon and Diana could not do enough to make our stay pleasant and warmly.

Thank you so much for your review of your stay with us. The positive response makes all our efforts to ensure our guests stay and comfort worthwhile. Diana is responsible for both the chocolates and cakes as she makes them.

We chose this B&B when we wanted to visit the Coromandel Peninsula. Whe thank Diane and Gordon for their great hospitality. From their place we made some excursions to Coromandel, Hot water beach etc. The view on the beach through their big back window was fantastic.

Brilliant hosts and a great stay at Simpson's beach. Gordon and Diane could not do enough for us during our stay at the B&B. Would go back and stay if we can as it is located right on the beach. Highly recommend this B&B .

Indeed we were fortunate in having one of the only B & Bs, located right on a Mercury Bay beachfront. One only has to walk across the grass to be on the sands of Simpson's Beach where Captain Cook himself stood on November 4th 1769. We do appreciate knowing that our efforts at ensuring guest satisfaction are met.

We were honoured to have been chosen by our recent guests from Australia. Given they had problems getting here because of a road closure due to heavy rain south of Whitianga, we felt it was appropriate to offer them dinner on their arrival. We are always pleased to hear feedback from our guests

A great spot: next to the beach. The owners, Gordon and Diana are offering all you need for a short break: a good bed, very good breakfast, nice conversations. Helpful from beginning to the end: choice of restaurants, things to do, etc. We love to come back!
