We love our friendly neighbourhood with its close proximity to the white sandy beach where we take our little Yorkshire Terrier, Coco for regular walks and swims. We also love going down to "The Mount" to walk around or up it for the fantastic view of the coast and harbour. Watch cruise ships sail out to sea and wave to passengers as you picnic at Pilot Bay. Bathe in the famous salt mineral pools at the base of the mountain. Take surfing or paddle boarding lessons or wander along the little town streets to nab a bargain in the boutique stores and weekend markets.
Supermarkets, shopping malls, banks, post offices, restaurants, gym and swimming pools etc are within walking distance and also on the bus route. Mandy and Wayne will readily supply you with all the information you need in order to have a wonderful stay in the Bay of Plenty.
The local bus stop is less than a min away in the next street. A short ride to all main areas of Mount, Tauranga and Papamoa. Bikes are available for small hire fee for a more leisurely mode of transport.

Wayne and I love living at the Mount and have lived in our home for 20 years. Our kids are in their early 20's and live away from home now so it's just us and our little dogs Coco and Weeman enjoying our home. We travelled throughout Europe and Britain in the late 80's, have cruised around the Pacific Islands and been to Hong Kong and L.A. And would love to host others who want to enjoy what our own country and city have to offer with our special brand of kiwi hospitality. Our favourite travel destinations are Portugal, France, Greece and Italy, and the Pacific Islands. We like good movies and eating alfresco in our little slice of paradise. Wayne works during the day as a Sales Rep in the Grocery trade and volunteers at the Emergency Department of the hospital once a week. A qualified Counsellor, Mandy currently enjoys the quiet life at home and both Wayne and Mandy look forward to hosting you on your next visit to beautiful Mt. Maunganui.
