Other things to note
What Our Place IS

* Fresh, clean, with great quality comfortable beds and quality appliances
* Semi rural
* Cosy and homely
* Away from the hustle and bustle of town. We are 16km (10mi), or approx 20 mins to Rotorua Central Mall). We don't suffer from major traffic issues in Rotorua, so its very rarely as much as 20 mins to town.
* Easy access to Tauranga. Its 43km (27mi) and approx 35 mins drive to the Tauranga Crossing shopping centre. Mt Maunganui beach is an easy 59km (36mi), usually just an hour's drive.
*10km (6mi) to the Gondolas/Skyline MTB hub.
* 16km (10mi) to TECT All Terrain park.
* 20km (12.5mi) to Waipa MTB hub
* Very private, safe, secure, little to no road noise.
* Generally extremely peaceful location in terms of human created noise, but you should expect the odd distant moo of a cow, baaaa of a sheep or rooster crow, we ARE in the country after all! :)

What Our Place ISN'T

* Our property is NOT suited to children under 12 for safety reasons. We may consider children over 9 years on a case by case basis but this must be sent as an enquiry not a booking request.
* We are not in the central business district of town. There is no public transport, you will need your own transport.
* We are not hotel-like. Guests have told us its much nicer than a hotel! It's more like a home away from home (more peaceful, personal and relaxing, than most hotels we've stayed in!

Location

Hamurana, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

We have lived in Hamurana for 5 years, and loved the area so much we decided to buy here in March 2018.

We are set well back off the road, and the area is safe, secure and extremely peaceful. The most noise will usually be the many birds around, (and the local chickens). With a large property some maintenance does have to happen now and then but we do endeavour to keep any noise within 10am-4pm so as to minimise any spoiling of your peace.

You only have to walk up the drive, and across the road, and you are right on the lake edge.

Paul and Lee your hosts, are a quiet living couple who enjoy the peace of living outside of the city centre, but close enough for convenience. We are just under 3 hours drive from Auckland, and under an hour from Mt Maunganui beach. We love our piece of paradise, a 5 min walk to the lake edge, and just 15 min drive to the city centre. Roughly 10 mins to Skyline Skyrides and the Luge, and about 20 mins from the epic Mountain Biking area that is Whakarewarewa Forest. We are just 3km down the road from Hamurana Springs, the largest fresh water spring in the North Island. Lee has a wealth of knowledge of hiking/walking tracks within a few hours drive of Rotorua and also has a passion for photography of flora and fauna in our native bush. Of particular interest are native birds and in the cooler months, fungi photography! Paul works Monday to Friday, but Lee might be available for guided walks suited to most fitness levels. She can also advise what you would need for more epic adventures into the great outdoors (tramping trips etc). We have some knowledge of the mountain biking tracks in Whakarewarewa forest, and also some of the tracks further afield. We have enjoyed travelling together to Australia, South Africa, Noumea, and also obviously within our own beautiful country, and it would be our pleasure to host you and share our knowledge of this wonderful area.
