For our family's first B & B experience, I can say it was an amazing experience. Top place to stay and love that warm family feeling. Thanks Gordon and Diana, you guys were great. 100% recommend this to all our friends and I love how close it is to the beach. Would love to stay there again

Both Diana and I feel humbled when our guests respond with such positiveness to our efforts to make them feel welcome when they choose to stay with us. We do appreciate feedback and still realise that we can still learn from our guests what their needs are and if necessary alter what we do to try to achieve a better...

We went here with our toddler for the long weekend and just fell in love with the place - it's as if the hosts welcome you into their home and their family. Diana and Gordon made us feel very welcome, regaling us with stories, giving recommendations on local food joints and entertaining our mischievous toddler with some cool toys! The...

property was clean, safe, comfortable. Room was private, clean, immaculate bathroom with great hot water. hosts were very accommodating, loaned us beach towels, shovels, and gave recommendations on local restaurants. a little more interactive than your typical b and b, but that was interesting and informative, and kind of fun to meet the extended family. would stay again.

These quests arrived as we were starting to prepare our house for Christmas. For 20 days we are currently known as the "Christmas House" with over 20,000 lights, 30+ Christmas trees and many other special things. Whilst many come to visit the displays, only guests are in the house and we do try to make everybody welcome and introduce them...

This is a first class location literally overlooking the ocean. Gordon and Diana are the consummate hosts, we were looked after extremely well, in fact over and above what one would normally expect. This was my second visit to On the Beach and hopefully it will not be my last. A thoroughly enjoyable and unforgettable experience.

The accommodation was excellent and Gordon & Diana (the owners) could not do enough for us while staying with them in their beautiful home. We stayed for three nights and when we left we were very sad to go. We felt that we were leaving and saying good by to close family.

The view from this B&B is just amazing! Located on the beach, it is one of the most beautiful views that you might be able to get. However, I think that hosts Gordon and Diana are even able to top that view! They are so friendly and make you feel at home immediately. You can ask them anything and they...

Responding to such a great review is humbling, yet it should not be as we both try to make our guests welcome and on arriving we tell them that this is their home as long as they stay with us. We do try to respond to all requests and if we are not able to, we say so. Again thank...

The location was good being located on Simpsons beach. The room was fantastic with little touches that make the difference. Like chocolates in the bedroom at night and fresh cakes each day. Our hosts Gordon and Diana could not do enough to make our stay pleasant and warmly.

We chose this B&B when we wanted to visit the Coromandel Peninsula. Whe thank Diane and Gordon for their great hospitality. From their place we made some excursions to Coromandel, Hot water beach etc. The view on the beach through their big back window was fantastic.

Brilliant hosts and a great stay at Simpson's beach. Gordon and Diane could not do enough for us during our stay at the B&B. Would go back and stay if we can as it is located right on the beach. Highly recommend this B&B .

Indeed we were fortunate in having one of the only B & Bs, located right on a Mercury Bay beachfront. One only has to walk across the grass to be on the sands of Simpson's Beach where Captain Cook himself stood on November 4th 1769. We do appreciate knowing that our efforts at ensuring guest satisfaction are met.
