Our two nights at the Beachside B&B was heaven and awesome!!! Lorraine and Jim could not have been hospitable, friendly, accomodating, helpful and everything value of an owner!!!. The accommodation was excellent and it is very closed to everything you want to go in Tauranga. The breakfast was very well presented on the table and super delicious!!! To me, it is the Best B&B I ever had on my family holiday!!! Thank you so much Jim and Loraine and we will sure come back!!
Jim and Lorraine were most welcoming and have provided a delightful stay for us. I feel that I have found a kindred spirit in Jim, who seems to have thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. Our ground floor room was comfortable and spacious with en-suite bathroom. I have trouble sleeping when there is a lot of ambient light in the room. This was the only place I stayed in while in New Zealand in which it was actually very dark in the room at night time, and I really appreciated that. As the building is back away from the street, there was also no audible traffic noise from the road. Like I said, Jim has thought of everything - it was the only place we've ever stayed at where a power board has been provided so that we can easily charge our phones and camera. It was so…
Jim and Lorraine Robertson have a very nice B&B, basically on the beach in the shadow of Mount Maunganui. Jim prepared an excellent breakfast on the upper floor of their house with a view of the ocean. At night we could hear the waves lapping at the shore. It's a 45-second walk to the beach and, if you are an early riser, the sunrise will meet you. Our room was spacious and the en suite bathroom up to par. If you are travelling down the east coast of the North Island, I recommend spending a night with Jim and Lorraine.
What a delightful place to stay whilst visiting The Mount. Spotless accommodation, excellent breakfast of fresh fruit etc, private access to the beach and lovely hosts in Jim & Lorraine. Location wise, the Beachside is located outside the town centre with limited bars and restaurants within easy walking distance but taxis are readily available. Sitting having breakfast with the other guests looking out across the beach to the ocean was just idyllic, we really wanted to stay longer. Thanks Jim & Lorraine for a lovely few days at Beachside.
We stayed in the "Rimu" room on the ground floor - it's plenty big enough although the bathroom is a bit on the small side. There's also a small patio area. The property is the middle one of three on a plot with direct access (no roads to cross) to the beach. The shared guest lounge where the excellent breakfast is taken is on the third floor with a balcony offering a sea view. The only downside from our point of view was that the walk into Mt. Maunganui was a bit of a struggle after dinner.
