Chris and Paul made us very welcome in a friendly, relaxed way. Our room was well equipped and spacious. Breakfasts were excellent and delivered to our door by Paul so that we could enjoy them on the terrace outside our room.

We stayed three nights at this place and we can say it is remarkable. Very nice welcoming by our hosts, who provide us with a complete guide book of the surroundings (good restaurants, activities, nice spots, ...). We had the central room which is amazing, with a large bed, a nice bathroom and a private small living room upstairs with...

We received such a friendly welcome & hospitality from Chris & husband, Paul (who runs Cathedral Bay Water Taxi) & son Paul (who owns the Ocean Leopard sight- seeing boat, another "must do"). One has a choice of 3 suites or the cottage (for longer stays). Our 3 days just about qualified for that & it suited us perfectly, because...

Wished we had stayed for longer than the one night on our 4 day drive from Auckland to Wellington. Room was unusual with a balconied sitting room. Owners both very friendly and helpful but I would be disinclined to follow up on their recommendation of a local restaurant, the Eggsentric.

We stayed at the Mussel Bed for the last 3 days of a 4 week holiday. It was the perfect relaxing end. The room was spacious with room to leave our huge suitcases upstairs, the bed was comfortable and the breakfasts delicious. Chris and Paul were ideal hosts, with recommendations on where to eat and what to do. We had...

We had a fantastic time staying at the cottage at Mussel Bed in Cook's Beach, Coromandel with two couples. The location is excellent, quite central in Coromandel allowing easy driving access to many places, but without the busyness of the larger towns like Whitianga. Note that though there is a passenger ferry to Whitianga from 4 minutes drive down the...

We had the most lovely time at Mussels in Coromandel! Chris and Paul Are wonderful and took such good care of us! The breakfasts are too good...we felt right at home and the location of the cottage was the best for quick access to Cooks Beach-we even kayaked to the ocean with their kayaks from the cottage. Don't miss Dave...

In the Paradise which is the Coromandel on the North Island of New Zealand, Chris and Paul have created their own corner of Heaven. Don't even think of visiting this part of NZ without spending some time in this glorious hideaway close to Cook's Beach. The accommodation is very individual and beautifully appointed, reflecting the Owners' flair and style. The...

We made a very late booking but it was no problem for the hosts who were delightful and welcoming and booked us into a local restaurant. The rooms are separate to the house, look out over the lush garden and are modern and delightful. The breakfast was outstanding and beautifully presented which we ate on the deck overlooking the gardens....
