“Great location, great views, great breakfasts”. Harbour View Bed and Breakfast has been welcoming guests from all over the world for more than 20 years. Just a short walk from the town centre and beaches, with three ground floor bedrooms, guest lounge, tropical garden with swimming pool, stunning views across to the mountain and our famous breakfasts, it’s a great place to stay and explore Tairua and the Coromandel; 25 minutes to Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove
Harbour View is a great place to relax - in your room, in the lounge, in the garden, by the pool, at the breakfast table. If you've just arrived in NZ, it's a chance to settle in, get used to the time difference, check your plans with Jane and Chris, let your friends and family know where you are, bring back some food from town to eat and swap stories and ideas with other guests.
You'll have your own room with private bathroom on the ground floor, with access to the garden and pool. breakfast is in the first floor lounge with panoramic view over the harbour and Mount Paku on the other side. you can use the guest bbq if you want to try cooking. and there are two guest kayaks to take out on the harbour to get even closer to the birdlife.
Chris and Jane will be around to look after you, chat and help you with suggestions for local trips - or tips for places to see across all of NZ.
Harbour View is five minutes walk along the beach from the town centre, with its restaurants, stores, gas station, cafes. The Pacific Ocean beach is 25 minutes walk around the inner harbour beach, or 5 mins drive. and of course the absolute highlight is the view from the top of Mount Paaku, our 'winged guardian'. There's a car park near the summit, or it's a one hour return walk from the waterfront.
New owners Jane and Chris moved into Harbour View on October 21st. Although we are from different backgrounds, owning a kiwi B&B has been a long-held dream for both of us. Jane is from Auckland, her family arrived on the first settlers’ boats in 1842, and she is a university academic, still commuting each week to Auckland (while we try to pay the mortgage!). Chris has been a hotelier, destination manager and tour operator, recently worked for Maui/Britz motorhomes, and also has a small tourism copy writing and editing business. We have stayed and toured all over the Coromandel for many years and look forward to sharing this beautiful part of the world with our guests
