“Karen is super welcoming and friendly. Very open person to chit chat, drink on the terrace and relax while looking at the waves of the ocean. She even has a hollywood swing with a stunning view. How awesome is that! Also she makes a lot of efforts to host you in the best manner ever seen: personal welcome at the door, huge breakfast with warm bread, gluten free options, board games, cards and colouring books to relax, a charging station in the living room, great recommendations what to explore, kayaks you can use, … the list seems never ending! If you are in the area, definitely stop here! You will miss the opportunity to meet and awesome person if you don’t. Thanks for making our stay unique Karen. Hope to see you again!”

“Karen was the best! We loved her place – it’s literally right on the water. She made us feel right at home; breakfast was awesome. Had a fire on the beach both nights – complete with marshmallows. Karen’s beach house was clean, stylish and just plain awesome! Even got to see some dolphins! I can’t say enough about the great hospitality we received. Karen went over and above to make us feel welcomed. When I get back to NZ, hers will be the first place I book in Kiwi-land!”

“It is a great experience to stay in Karen’s waterfront home. You can expect much more than these pictures about the room or view. The house is clean and comfy. The view in front of the house is amazing. There is a playground just for your kids. Karen is a great host as she gave me many informations for my trip. My family love the fabulous breakfast. This place is highly recommended. Sure we will be back when we have a chance.”

“Definitely our best stay in NZ! The stunning nature, a breathtaking view right in front of the guesthouse and the loveliest hosts you can find on earth. Karen, her husband Dave and her sister Sharon made us feel like home and done everything to make our stay a great and unique experience. They gave us as much privacy as we needed and were very helpful with all our requests. They helped us to plan our trip through Coromandel and told us where to find the best beaches, restaurants and walks. We’ve also been on an unforgettable fishing trip with Dave and enjoyed a delicious red snapper for dinner after that. Dave also took us for a short bush walk to one of the biggest Kauri trees in NZ. The breakfast was a real feast! Karen surprised us with a fresh selfmade bread and different yummy things for breakfast every day. We were so lucky to find this place and to meet these wonderful people. We’ll definitely be back soon! Thank you so much, Karen, Sharon and Dave.”

“Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kereta, especially enjoyed having nature literally at the back door!  Dotterels, Oyster Catchers – both nesting within eyesight of the house.  The room was large and comfortable, Karen and Dave are welcoming hosts and go the extra mile to ensure your stay is great. I highly recommend this B&B and will definitely be back there next Summer!”

“Thank you Karen and Dave, I had a lovely weekend staying at Kereta B&B. The kayaking was fun, as was relaxing on the beach with a few drinks. The bed was comfortable too, I was made to feel very much at home. Highly recommended.”
