We usually stay self catering with our 18 month old son but after reading about Taigh Na Mara and Carol we decided to try a B&B for our long weekend break in Coromandel and it was the right decision. Carol made us feel at home and we quickly felt like we were welcome guests. We had asked for dinner as well and Carol accommodated our diet requirements (plant based) to prepare three amazing dinners. The breakfasts are also brilliant, with Carols home made granola and bread particular highlights. It's a great location, literally 5 mins walk from the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend.
Had a 3 night stay with Carol and the welcome and hospitability was outstanding. She has great local knowledge which she is only too happy to pass on if required. We had the best home cooked breakfasts and you can request an evening meal which we had and 100% recommend with fresh local produce. The home is set in a beautiful garden with reserve all around so no close neighbours. We walked across the road to a stunning beach for a swim and walk. The room was spacious and very comfortable with its own ensuite and patio. Great base to explore the area, will definitely be back. Thank you Carol
Carol was very hospitable and helpful. Her place is really nice. We weren't blessed with great weather, but we could see how the location would be great on a sunny day. Taigh Na Mara Bed and Breakfast was the highlight of our trip. Carol also made some good recommendations. We enjoyed the kauri grove on the way back. Thank you Carol!
We were delighted with our stay, Our room and facilities were outstanding. Bed comfortable., spacious room, garden outlook. Lounge and television available for our use. Breakfast, a feast . Carol provided good and interesting company. We recommend her highly and look forward to another visit
We stayed with Carol for four nights and it was gorgeous. Beautiful spot on the Coromandel Peninsular, wild and wonderful beaches and lovely walks. The B&B is warm and comfortable. Carol does a great job - she is warm and welcoming, knowledgeable about the area and extremely perceptive about guests' interests. She is an amazing cook - we dined with her on the first night and it was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble from towels for the hot springs to gear to clean our muddy hiking boots. Really lovely experience.
So perfect in every way . We enjoyed the central location for that beautiful coastline. Our host was like a new best friend with excellent ideas and amazing food. We especially enjoyed village of Coromandel and Cathedral Cove.
We had the loveliest few days staying at Taigh Na Mara in May. Located just a few minutes from the most beautiful beach, we experienced a glorious sunset on the first evening. Kuaotuna is an excellent spot from which to explore the Coromandel, and Taigh Na Mara provided us with a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Carol is a wonderful hostess, a fabulous cook, and her attention to detail was obvious in so many aspects of our stay. Luke's Kitchen at the village, does great pizzas!
We had a brief but lovely stay at Taigh Na Mara. Kuaotunu is a lovely quiet village, with a beautiful beach. We decided to stay here to be close to surfing lessons we had organized in Matarangi, but the location would have been great for exploring further away too. Carol was very welcoming and the room was spacious and comfortable for all 3 of us. We appreciated the home comforts (including some delicious cookies) along with a private access to our room. The B&B is across the road from the beach, with a nice garden and green space around it. Finally, we (myself and two teenage sons) all enjoyed the delicious breakfast.
We had a wonderful time staying at Taigh Na Mara. Carol is just the most wonderful host and the rooms and home are lovely. Just a walk across the road from the beach and 10 mins walk to Lukes, it is the perfect location. Carol's breakfast, with the home made jams and breads were delicious. We are already planning to go back! Its the perfect place for a getaway. Can't recommend it enough.
Carol was an amazing host. There was so much attention to detail in every aspect of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for Carol. She catered to dietary requirements and our room was immaculate with lots of little details that made our stay so nice. We will definitely be back again, we just wished we got to stay longer.
