I did not what to stay at Marks place, due to the dog. I apologized and took all the blame on me... We only taked on the phone, he was not at home, when I arrived. I could hear the barking dog, but he was locked in another room. I did not feel at ease and told that to Mark. He took it personly and told me, I was rude. I do not mean to insult anybody, but i will not stay, just to be polite. That not the deal, sorry.
perfect to lay your head down for the night, nice and clean and mark is breezy as
Mark provides a great place to stay. He is a relaxed and congenial host.
Had a great time with Mark and Charlie during our stay. BBQ dinners with local characters like Hooper were special too! Salt of the Earth kiwi (website hidden).
Manganui not to be missed while in New Zealand .
Thank you so much to Mark for those days. It will stay one of our best moment in our 6 months trip around the world. We miss you already and are waiting for you in France (we will search very hard the kiteboarding-sailor and beer lover french girl so you can come !) or maybe we will come back before! Perfect place and amazing guy! See you soon and THANK YOU again !
Mark was a fantastic host, very accommodating. Room was big and comfortable. Charlie the dog is very friendly and loves a cuddle. House is in a lovely area felt very safe walking around at night.
Would recommend having a car as it's a bit far from the Mount and the buses stop at 5pm on the weekend. Plenty of taxi's about though and the house is very close to a shopping centre and bar's and restaurants.
fantastic host ! really enjoyed staying in the house ... highly recommended
Mark is a free spirit and a very congenial host. The bed was warm and comfortable and we could watch tellie in bed which is all I want. A word of warning though - just arrange in advance when you'll arrive as we had no idea on how to contact Mark and were left waiting outside until we got a neighbour to phone him.
Had a great, relaxed stay and learned a whole lot about Kiwi culture!
We had a great stay in Mt Maunganui with Mark and his friendly lab Charlie. A comfortable bed, large screen TV, and WiFi made it feel like home. It's a short walk to Bayfair shopping centre and a short drive to the stunning Mount Maunganui and Papamoa beaches.
