We booked this b and b, requesting a room with a view. We were shown into the huge lounge/ dining room with absolutely panoramic views of Caroline Bay over to Timaru. After some confusion we were shown to our room... A miniscule room at the back of the house overlooked by neighbours. Amazingly, Rosemary then showed us the only other...

Thank you for your review. Sorry you were not happy in our queen room which you reserved through booking.com. We try to ensure the best comfort for our visitors and that evening our large lounge with an amazing view was free for you to have to yourself As we only have one bedroom with a view this automatically goes to...

We stayed two nights at Pleasant View, and couldn't have been happier. Welcomed by Rosemary and Ian into a beautiful place, with amazing views over Caroline Bay. We had the room with Queen bed which was perfect for our needs. Lovely comfy bed, very quiet and immaculate bathroom. Breakfast was amazing, (been missing it since we left!) with a yummy...

We just had a one night stay with Rosemary and Ian in April (this is a very late review) and we wished we could have stayed longer - particularly to walk the track along the beach to the cafes. Such wonderful, friendly hosts with attention to detail in all aspects of their B&B. This is a new purpose built B&B...

Very comfortable, good bedroom and bathroom, and lots of space in the common area, and a good kitchen and fireplace. Great view in the morning over the bay. Very helpful and friendly hosts! We brought back our takeaway fish & chips and bluff oysters for dinner after a long drive and found homemade chocolate slice and plunger coffee for afters!...

This was our first night in New Zealand and it was certainly a good start to our 3-week trip. Not much to add to the good reviews already but we were very impressed by the modern architecture and views. We were pleasantly surprised at breakfast to find a Nespresso machine - the only one on our trip. Rosemary let us...

A wonderful overnight stop in this B&B. Rose and Ian were very gracious hosts with a lovely new house with totally amazing sea views over Caroline Bay. The rooms are separate from the owners and have a lovely guest lounge and kitchenette with ample supplies of tea and coffee and the option to make a light snack. The lounge also...

Rosemary and Ian provided us with excellent bedding, home made breakfasts and a lovely location overlooking the Bay. This year a DVD has been added to our room. We are still travelling in N.Z. and have Ian's golf bag to be dropped off on our way back. Just another little kindness, one of the many shown to us by these...

We arrived at Pleasant view to a lovely NZ welcome from Rosemary. The first thing we saw as we went into the guests lounge was the large picture windows and the wonderful view of Caroline Bay. We were shown to our room which had equally good views of the bay. A large airy room with a kingsize bed, 2 bedside...

My husband and I stayed here for our last night in New Zealand, it was an easy 2 hour drive to the Christchurch Airport the next morning. This place is lovely. It is immaculate, modern and well appointed. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Rosemary had delicious continental breakfast options waiting for us...

What a little gem we found here!! This is a house and you have the free run of bottom floor, with one king size ensuite bedroom and a queen size ensuite bedroom (overlooking the beach), a living room with a little kitchen, just lovely. Had the most perfect sleep, so peaceful and quiet. Ian (the host) made continental and full...
