About this listing
We absolutely love it here and hope you find as much enjoyment and peace here as we do.
Superbly positioned on the waters edge, the stunning design of this waterfront home exudes style and quality. Contemporary, sunny and spacious with indoor/outdoor flow from kitchen/dining and formal lounge/dining to unobstructed water views. The north facing home for maximum sunlight offers the perfect sanctuary with easy access to Fergusson Park and harbour walks. Fabulous views across the Harbour to Mt Maunganui and Matakana Island. A very large sunny deck upstairs with extensive views. Beautiful waterfront walk to shops and cafe - about 4.5 kms each way. 5 minute drive to Tauranga CBD. 10 minute drive to Mt Maunganui. This house is situated to provide a peaceful relaxing holiday where you can do as much as you like or relax and watch the many activities on the Harbour, including lots of Kite surfers if the wind is up. Walk 1 minute along the beach to Fergusson Park for the children's playground and boat ramp. No smoking permitted anywhere on the property. Please respect our home but feel comfortable.
No smoking in the house. No pets. No parking on the driveway, you will need to park on the street - a very wide safe street. Please leave the house as you find it - vacuum floors, clean bathrooms, toilets and kitchen. The stove top is glass, please do not scrub with rough cleaner, but with glass cleaner provided. When leaving please take your rubbish with you and put all dirty linen in the laundry, thanks. Ensure all doors are locked when you leave. We hope you've had a wonderful time.
I was a bit surprised when Raechel called me and told me she was still in Auckland, but told me where to find the key to her family's home, as well as to introduce myself to the other couple already there. It was a lovely home right on the waterfront and next to the park, with beautifully updated facilities. I stripped the sheets and towels as requested, and remade the bed for the next couple, but overall, a lovely place to stay while in the Tauranga area!
Raechel and her husband gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived. They're very lovely hosts.
The house was a little bit old and was under renovation, however it was wonderful to be able to see water from everywhere. We could also walk directly to the beach whenever we wanted. That was really cool.
During our stay, the bathroom next to our room was under construction, that's why it was a bit noisy when we stayed there.
I think after the renovation is done, Raechel's place will be perfect to stay.
Raechel and Greg are two lovely hosts and made us feel very welcome. Their beautyful house is at the water and has great facilities. Our room was nice and clean and the bed reallz comfortable. We had a great time at their place and would go back to their place anyime.
Raechel und Greg sind unglaublich freundliche und zuvorkommende Gastgeber. Wir haben drei Nächte in ihrem großzügigen Haus verbracht und haben die Zeit sehr genossen. Von fast überall im Haus hat man das Wasser im Blick und kann sich bei Bedarf eine Abkühlung gönnen. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet und das Bett bequem. Unser Schlafzimmer hatte einen direkten Zugang zur großen Terrasse. Alles in allem schön, liebenswerte Gastgeber, gerne wieder!

About the Host, Raechel
My husband Greg & I are from Auckland, NZ. We love all outdoor activities. We're close to the beach so love the short walk down to the beach for a swim or a walk along the coastline to the local shops, cafes and restaurants.
