  • Annie and Tony were friendly and welcoming hosts! The sleepout was comfortable and there were also bikes available, which was especially convenient for us. The location is beautiful and we had an excellent time. Thank you for the great stay!

  • We just stayed only one night. But we could feel Annie and her husband very kind and nice people. And there is big supermarket and restaurant near the house. You can use private toilet and shower, microwave, coffeemaker, fridge etc. as well. Everything's in your private home. Highly recommend.

  • Great location and very private and accommodating, came into town on Business with a tight time schedule and found both Annie and Tony very helpful with the booking and pick up from the bus station and drop off at the airport. Close by to all the mount has to offer and had a great break :)

  • The unit is perfectly self contained minutes from the gorgeous beach, lovely hosts sorry we did not get to stay longer. Very helpful and up to date information about what's happening locally too which we liked to browse through. Fast wifi, better than some hotels we have stayed in!

  • I had a wonderful stay in this wonderful retreat. Annie and Tony are very hospitable and open hosts. The small house had everything I needed and was comfortable and clean. It was great to be so close to the beach - and the shops.

  • It was a great pleasure to be the first guest of Tony & Annie's sweet home. There is only 10 minutes walk to the beautiful beach, and we were very enjoy our last few days in New Zealand. Tony and Annie really make it feels like home.

My husband and I have recently moved to Mount Maunganui, having lived in Papamoa with our family since 1986. We love this part of the country, it's beautiful bush walks and of course this spectacular beach, and stunning Mauao. We are keen travellers ourselves and love meeting people from different parts of the world, and NZ! We value having the opportunity to stay with local people and gain local knowledge about the best places to go - so we hope to give others the same.
