The space

We love that our home is in such a nice area. It is also quiet. The area has some nice walking tracks if that's what you enjoy. We have nice outlook as our home backs on to a reserve. There is a bus stop just around the corner.

We are a friendly couple happy to talk travel with you as we have travelled a lot, but will not intrude on your privacy as your space is important. We recently had a lovely Belgian guy who is travelling the world on his recumbent cycle stay with us. Very Interesting!

Quote from Adrien's website as follows:
“The city of Tauranga is my next step. About thirty kilometers before the town, a picnic area where I was taking a coffee break, I met Marion and Kevin. Very quickly, they offer host me for the night. I am greeted like a king.
. Marion and Kevin were absolutely lovely and it was a pleasure to meet them”.

We offer a double bedroom with built in wardrobe. It is light and airy. You will have exclusive use of your own bathroom while you stay with us. The shower is over the bath. Our home is modern and has a slightly Tuscan feel.
Breakfast is included in the tariff and I prepare it for you so you just have to sit down and eat!

Our neighbourhood had good quality homes and is very nice and quiet. We back on to a reserve with ponds and ducks. There are lots of walking tracks around this area. A walk of 10 minutes takes you to Mills Reef Winery which is really nice and a great place for a leisurely lunch and some wine tasting. Another 15 minutes wander along the road brings you to our little Shopping centre and arguably the best restaurant in Tauranga.

Bus stop is 50 metres from our house. Town is a 6 minute drive. Mount Maunganui Beach is a 15 minute drive.
Usually I will be able to reply to your enquiry within a few hours.
We would love to meet you!

*Note: The price is for two guests not each.
*We have no separate cleaning fee.
* We do require at least two days notice for booking enquiries.

Guests have access to their own bathroom. They are very welcome in all areas of our home except our bedroom.

We love to socialise with our guests! However we take their cue on how much privacy they would like. It is their holiday after all! We are always there if they need advice or recommendations.

Our neighbourhood is one of the nicest in Tauranga. It has quality homes and tree lined streets, easy access to town and Mt. Maunganui. It is a very safe neighbourhood.

There is a bus stop 50 metres up the road.

Marion and Kevin are truly special hosts, in a truly special home. Felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel! Stay here if you want to feel like you are in a home away from home and are interested in the kiwi way of life. Couldn't have been better!

We had such a lovely stay with Marion and Kevin. They are a really lovely, welcoming couple who are great to chat with. Their house is beautiful, the bed was comfy and it was great having our own bathroom. They prepared us a great breakfast in the morning at no extra cost. We would recommend them to anyone and hopefully we will be back soon! Thank you Marion and Kevin.

By far the best Airbnb experience we have had. Marion and Kevin are incredible hosts - wonderfully down to earth and kind. This was our second trip to their beautiful home and we were treated like family. Fantastic bedroom and bathroom and a throwing distance to town. Could not recommend more.

An amazing home to stay in! Marion was a fantastic host and made us feel like friends rather than strangers. The breakfast was incredible too! Would definitely recommend to others.

Our stay at Marion and Kevins house was absolutely lovely. Both are very nice and caring, although we just stayed for one night we felt very welcome and had a nice evening and good chats with them. The room and bathroom are very spacious and pretty. Absolutely recommendable!
