We have a modern build right on the waterfront in Tauranga New Zealand. The rooms that we have to offer: Room 1 large room with a double wardrobe, queen size bed, bed side table with lamp, french doors out onto a private deck with a table and chairs, own bathroom or shared with other room if there is a guest in. Room 2 has a large picture window looking out to the sea a queen size bed two bed side tables with lamps, stand to place suitcase, easy chair, double wardrobe. every room looks out to the sea. we live on a private road with bush and bird life, it is very quiet. However we do own 2 dogs and 1 cat and a pond with about 50 goldfish. We now have 2 bee hives and you can see the honey bees at work during the day. The dogs have their own room downstairs. It is 10 minutes to get to the city and the same to a wonderful beach. There are lots of walking tracks and parks near our place. It is 10 minutes walk to the bus stop. We cook lots of different nationality dishes for main meals. We do like to have a quiet wine sometimes to relax after work. Our children are all grown up and do not live with us. We are now able to provide a fully qualified private masseuse by appointment, either in our home or at her work place. Get rid of your aches and pains that can happen through travel and relax for 30 minutes or 1 hour and get pampered. Sorry but lack of room in the fridge means there is not room for guests to store food.

    I really liked this house. Liz and Phil were very kind and the two dogs and a cat were friendly.
    The house was huge and i could relax well. :)

    I am a single traveller, sociable & love talking to people. Staying in motels I found myself never speaking to anyone. Liz and Phil were superb, they were very hospitable and offered good advice and suggested useful websites to find other B&B’s

    We had a fantastic stay with Liz and Phil. They are truly lovely people who couldn’t do enough for us! The house is beautifully decorated, spotless and has great views. The dogs were also very friendly, my daughters would have loved to have taken them home!!!!
    If you are looking for accommodation conveniently located between Tauranga and Mt Manganui do not hesitate to contact this wonderful couple, you will receive professional service and accommodation paired with a guest centred and personal touch!
    Our stay could have only been better if they could have had the sun shine for us!!!

    Michela, thank you for your review, sorry about the sun. The animals were missing the girls and all their attention. May be we will meet again one day, please keep in touch. Loved having you all.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
