Interaction with guests
We show you in when you arrive and make sure you know how to use the spa, TV, washing machine. After that you can have total privacy or share times with us in the Kiwifruit orchard, or even try my Kiwifruit muffins and a cup of tea if we have some spare time. We can always help you choose the best holiday spots to visit in the Bay of Plenty, Waihi Beach, Mount Maunganui, Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Coromandel and Rotorua, Hauraki rail bike trail, even White Island and Hobbiton. You can take day trips to all these amazing spots from here. Sometimes we might even take you for a bush walk :)
We have a very quiet country neighbourhood at the end of a no-exit road.
This makes our location ideal to go for short walks, enjoying the local kiwifruit and avocado orchards on the way, the sound of the cicadas in the summer, or even a longer walk/run to the sea in the Bay at Tuapiro Point. A swim at high tide is a treat and so much easier than driving to Waihi Beach. We are also very fortunate to have a gorgeous country Café, only 2 minutes drive from here on the Highway, The Long Table Café.
The Cottage is only 2 minutes drive to the main road State Highway 2, but you do need your own car to get around. No public transport here, as we are out in the country. Katikati is 7 minutes drive away, with banks, cafes, supermarkets, lots of antiques and op-shops. The city of Tauranga/Mount Maunganui is 35 minutes. Waihi beach is only 10 minutes drive from here.
Other things to note
Organic fresh fruit and vegetables from our garden will be waiting for you, in season. Complimentary tea and coffee are also supplied.
We have 4 cats, so please drive carefully up the drive way. They are not allowed in the Cottage, but will try to visit from time to time, so be aware just in case ;)

I am French with a Kiwi husband and 3 beautiful children. I have lived in New Zealand 25 years now and I just want everyone to see how beautiful, friendly and amazing this country is. Plus we are so blessed to live in one of the most popular tourist area in the North Island, we have an organic kiwifruit orchard, we grow organic fruit and vegetables, I love to cook fresh healthy food, so why not share this experience with the rest of the world!!! When we do travel, we go back to France to visit my family, so it's great to meet people from other countries here at home :)
