A sumptuous kingsize bed or twin beds await in your private room in our sunny, modern home within walking distance to the beach. Relax in the spa in the tropical outdoors after a day of exploring all that Mt Maunganui and our slice of paradise have to offer.

The Space

Situated in the quiet neighbourhood of Oceandowns, our home in its charming tropical setting offers a reprieve from travelling and busy city life. The room is inviting with large comfortable bed offering a private space to unwind and relax. Our home offers a number of comfortable spaces in either of the two lounges or outdoor entertainment area complete with hammock, spa pool, BBQ and alfresco dining area. Continental breakfast provided.

Guest Access

Guests have access to shared living areas, lounge, family room, 50" TV, WiFi, kitchen, laundry, bathrooms, outdoor entertainment areas, and spa pool.

Interaction with Guests

Wayne and Mandy are welcoming and hospitable hosts who interact easily and readily with their guests. They are well travelled and love to meet other interesting people from all walks of life. Wayne is a Sales Rep during the day and volunteers at the hospital emergency department one night a week. While Mandy is available at home to attend to guests requirements.

Common spaces are shared with guests and interaction is welcome. The privacy of guests bedrooms is respected as a quiet space to retreat without interruption.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

The local bus stop is less than a min away in the next street.

Other Things to Note

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.

Note: The children can be noisy occasionally during the day when they swim in their pool next door. This is near our outdoor entertainment area but should not disturb you in your bedroom as they are situated on the opposite side of the house.

  • Wayne & Mandy were such warm and gracious hosts. Their home is so well kept and convenient to the beach area and a short driving distance to The Mount. The room and toilet/shower area was very private. We would highly recommend this B&B!

    Thanks guys! We loved sharing an evening with you and hearing about your family and home lives. Thinking of you in beautiful Hawaii (slightly envious lol).

  • I have to say, it is by far the most amazing accommodation experience, Wayne and Mandy are so nice and kind also very interesting and a pleasure to talk to just about anything. Plus they have a wonderful king size bed! Which you would not want to leave and can't wait to jump in! Don't crush it, enjoy your stay at their place and enjoy the beautiful and peaceful journey at the mount.

  • My stay with Mandy and Wayne was hands down the best Air BnB experience I've had. I can't thank them enough for letting me into their home with such open arms and made me feel just like one of the family. I must confess I left with a tear in my eye after we shared a lovely dinner, a great foodie discussions and walks on the beach with little Coco. I will definitely be back in the future!

  • We had a great time in Tauranga with Wayne & Mandy during Easter. They are warm and friendly. Room and bathroom are so clean and we fell into a deep sleep every night. We have already planned summer holiday in Tauranga at Wayne & Mandy's house! Looking forward to it!

Sales Rep and Counsellor
Wayne and I love living at the Mount and have lived in our home for 18 years. Our kids are in their early 20's and live away from home now so it's just us and our little dog Coco 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.
