The space

The accomodation is funky and functional, a perfect little space for your Tauranga stay!

You get your own, one bedroom unit with a double bed that has real mattress (its a hard IKEA mattress). I also provide towels, sheets and blankets. The accommodation is suitable for up to three people. For the third person, or in case you do not wish to share the double bed, an extra single bed can be added, please request!

Please note, that there is no door between the bedroom and the lounge!

There is plenty of free unlimited parking in front of my house on the street. Only use the driveway for unloading and then park your vehicle on the road in front of the house.

You are welcome to make use of the kitchen with a dining room table you can eat or work at. If you want to cook while you're here, you can store food in the fridge-freezer. Only light cooking is allowed! The living room has a TV, a comfy sofa and a desk. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the sunny outdoor patio.

I provide tea and coffee without charge. I have shampoo, shower gel and liquid hand soap for you in the bathroom. Clean "European style" linens are also provided and all of our covers are washed after each guest.

Use of washing machine: $5
Use of dryer: $5

The house is centrally located, but it is not walking distance to bars, tourist spots or nightlife. That means this location is quiet and even peaceful. I consider it a great location, but please don't expect to walk to the exciting places from the front door.

If you stay here, please don't later write in a review that the house is not near attractions or rate the location otherthan fantastic on a star basis. You can see the location on the map before you book, and you can use street view to wander down the streets to see how awesome the neighborhood is.
Please do not stay here if you feel this location is not a great location (especially if you travel without a car). The stars matter to hosts very much, and I can't do anything to changethe location. Read my reviews that praise the location.

I write this explanation to help make your stay delightful and charming, not to scare you. Staying here is an experience most of my guests really, really like, as you can see in my reviews.

Terrific wee self contained place that is essentially central Tauranga and therefore provided good access to things when moving out and about. Simon is a very clear communicator and that helped all round - arrival, stay and departure. Would recommend.

Quiet, private space. Very quaint and comfortable, great little kitchen for those who want to eat in, and excellent value for money. Short drive to mount maunganui.

The studio is beautiful and airy. Very spacious with a cosy bedroom, living room for relaxing and basic kitchen for cooking. Walking distance to the supermarket and take aways. Also easy to drive into town and located very close to SH1 to make onward travel pleasant.

The spot is very nice, clean, with all amenities that we need for the period. We stay in NZ for one month in 5 places and this is the better than others with no doubt. When we regress certainly will came back for Simon's place for sure.
