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.

Please do not bring strangers into our home without asking first. Please respect our home but feel comfortable. Please keep our home secure and lock all doors and windows when leaving the house.
A gem of a location with only a few metres of grass between you and the beach and the ever changing panoramic views of the harbour and leisure activities of Ferguson Park.
No smoking in the house. No pets. Do not park on the driveway, you will need to park on the street - a very wide safe street.

When leaving please put all dirty linen in the laundry, thanks. Ensure all doors are locked when you leave. We hope you've had a wonderful time.
Raechel's place is absolutely beautiful, in a manicured neighbourhood that oozes charm! Our room had an amazing view of the water which is only a few steps away, and also gave out to a very large upper terrace. The bathroom we used was just renovated with white marble everywhere, and was stunning. We didn't have the opportunity to meet Raechel in person as she was away while we stayed at her place, but all our communications with her were easy and responsive. She is clearly a very nice woman and a lovely hostess, ensuring we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Would highly recommend her place, as well as a visit to Mount Maunganui, about a 10 minutes drive from there.
Raechel was very helpful in making the booking. Although she was not at Matua when we were there we managed to find the key and make ourselves at home ,sharing the house with up to 2 other couples while we were there for 6 days. The house is in a stunning location with views to the Nth West and an excellent walking /cycling path along the waterfront. When all 3 bathroom upgrades are completed the house will easily accommodate 3 couples rather than sharing 1 as we had to do, sometimes working around the plumber and electrician. The neighbourhood is quiet, mostly retired folk like ourselves .
I didn't actually meet my host. The house is being looked after by an American couple. The American lady was there to greet us on arrival. House was easy to find and is exactly as described in Airbnb. My room and bathroom, next door, was spacious and clean.
I did feel like I was intruding in the American couples space, wasn't comfortable about using the kitchen facilities! On a very positive note, we did have free access to the washing machine, after a months travelling it was wonderful to get 3 washings done and everything dry the same day.
We had a lovely time with Raechel and Greg. We were let in by their tenant who also lives on the property who set us up with everything we needed. Raechel and Greg were also staying that weekend, and we spent a very low key relaxing evening with them both chatting and watching a doco. Their home was clean and comfortable. They were very accommodating and understanding of our baby. We stayed in a tidy comfy room with a sea view. Unfortunately we didn't have access to the deck as they were doing some maintenance but given it was a stormy rainy weekend it wasn't an issue. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
What a lovely and charming house! I arrived for the sunset and the view from the deck was outstanding. Since the owners were not here during my stay, the young american couple who is renting one of the room downstairs welcomed me. They are both very friendly. I didn't get the room I booked with the sea view but I guess there was a misunderstanding between the owner and the host couple. I was still pleased with mine.

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.
