Bill and Lorraine were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome in their home. The standard of accommodation was excellent and the view from our room stunning - Pacific rollers and expansive deserted sandy beaches with nesting dotterels and other sea birds. We loved the attention to detail, the beautiful flower on the bed, the home-made cakes and biscuits...

Stayed here for 3 nights our first bed and breakfast stay booked by Paul from New Zealland in Depth and what a great start. The view from our room over the bay was just stunning and coupled with being really well looked after by Lorraine and Bill.Plenty to do either visiting the local bays or just walking around. Many thanks...

We spent two nights at the Kuaotunu Bay lodge where we had a wonderful welcome and a lot of good advice about where to go and now to get there, plus the peaches Lorraine picked on her peach tree herself and left by our door ! Bill and Lorraine were adorable to us. The room we had is more like...

An elegant beach house, overlooking Kuatonu Beach , the Ocean and peninsula. Uniquely beautiful, blooming garden that invites you to relax. Through the property run and you're right on the golden sandy beach - a dream. Breakfast on the terrace is unique.

Sadly our two days in December to the Coromandel Peninsula were spoilt by very wet weather. If it is nice though this is a lovely place to stay with super views overlooking the sea and a patio where you could enjoy the same. The room was not the most luxurious in our trip round B & B's in New Zealand...

My wife and I recently spent a month travelling around parts of Australia and New Zealand and thought that to finish of our travels we would spend a few days in a relaxed and luxurious accommodation somewhere in the Coromandel. We spent ages searching through the various websites for what we thought would be the ideal place to finish our...

Lorraine and Bill were perfect hosts during our 3 night stay in November 2014. This was the first home based stay for us during our 3 week tour and it set a very high standard for those which followed. We were made to feel very welcome and the wide local knowledge they shared with us meant that we were able...

Our room was small, basic and with no facilities. Tea&coffee facilities were in the corridor. TV was a loundge with old fashioned furniture and switched off in the evening, hence off limits. The place advertises itself as a "lodge", promises "affordable luxury" for what is a simple and overpriced B&B. Not worth the $290 per night we paid. To be...

Unfortunately this is the down side of Trip Advisor reviews. people who do not have the courage to discuss a concern with the host can anonymously post negative comments. We are sure the reviewer would not appreciate us commenting publicly on his reasons for writing a vexatious and untrue review. We believe it deserves to be treated with contempt. Judgement...

The property itself is absolutely stunning - just across the road from the beach and with views from the bedroom (and adjoining terrace) that are absolutely to die for. The room itself was excellent, very modern and comfortable (probably the nicest bed I have slept in for a long time). so in those two respects absolutely faultless. However I would...

Thankyou for your review of our property and we are pleased you had a comfortable night and enjoyed the view. I think your one night stay did not allow you the time to take in all that we offer our guests. We do in fact have a large guest lounge which you would have walked past several times. There is...

This is a beautifully designed lodge which has been purpose built by the owners in a stunning location. Lorraine and Bill are very generous and lovely hosts – there are many places where you arrive and are told “make yourself at home” but not many such as this where it really feels like you absolutely could do that – the...
