House - Private room · Beaumaris Blvd, Tauranga, Bay Of Plenty 3110, New Zealand

The Space

Hi, I am Val and myself and my husband Bryden live in a truely gorgeous part of New Zealand., Tauranga..some have compared it to Florida, Noosa, and the South of France...

We have a 4 bedroom house so plenty of room...

You will have a Queen size bed and your own bathroom with shower and bath. Our home is spacious and we are happy for you to use the cooking facilities or BBQ in a private courtyard garden.

You are free to come and without worrying about disrupting the household. We have a small dog called Monty who loves plenty of attention and is very cute!

We are 3 mins away from the local bus which will take you into the city or the beautiful Mount Maunganui Beach, one of the best in New Zealand.

We are down the road from the beautiful Mills Reef Winery and an easy walk to the Bethlehem Shopping Centre. There are some lovely walks close by and a great place to cycle.

We have both been avid travellers and I still enjoy the odd adventure. We would love to welcome you to our home.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This B&B was so nice, we had the impression to spend two days with friends. It was a real pleasure to speak with our guests in their so charming and very clean house. We recommanded the breakfast!

  • Val was one of the best hosts I've had the pleasure of staying with! She was very flexible with my arrival time, and extremely helpful with providing information about the area. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation over breakfast. I highly recommend staying at Val's place!

  • Val had been in the travel business so she clearly knows what she's doing. Their accommodations are first rate and their traveller's advice was superb. Bryden, a retired farmer, suggested the Agrodome, which we loved. If we had one more day to spend, Bryden would have escorted us to and through the local Kiwifruit processing center, and introduced my husband ( he's in fresh food retail in the states) around. A lovely offer which we unfortunately couldn't accept. Our best restaurant meal in NZ was at the Somerset cottage, which they recommended. We would never have noticed it, otherwise.
    My best antique shop experience yet was one suggested by Val, and my homesickness for our pets was cured by Monty, their peppy little Schnauser.
    Val & Bryden were charming, hospitable, and easy to be with. If you want to stay in town, their elegant home and kiwi straightforwardness will prove an unbeatable combination.
    I'd be glad to be back any time.

  • We spent a lovely two days staying with Val and Bryden. They were wonderful hosts, a very interesting couple, friendly and helpful, and a great source of local knowledge about places to eat, visit etc. They were also quick to invite us to join them for a meal, a beer, or to watch tennis (Australian open) on television. Their house is very clean, spacious and quiet, with wi-fi access and a comfy bed, all within easy driving reach of Tauranga and Mount Maunganui. We highly recommend this as an affordable and comfortable home-away-from-home.

  • Our stay in Tauranga was great! Val is a wonderful host - very knowledgeable, kind, friendly, and accommodating. Our bathroom and bedroom were impeccably clean and comfortable. Val and her husband prepared a great breakfast and gave us some useful travel tips. We would highly recommend this home to anyone!

  • We had a great time. Very nice, very comfortable home. Very much a "mi casa, su casa" feeling that we really enjoyed. Thanks so much Val.

  • Val and Bryden were great hosts and their home very comfortable and in a good (email hidden)l even joined us for a walk up Mount Maunganui
    which is well worth doing.
    Loved their dog Monty also and would definately stay here again.
    Highly recommend if staying in Tauranga.

  • We enjoyed our stay in Tauranga very much. Our room at the lovely house of Val and Brydon in Bethlehem made it even better. We had a good start in each day with a fine breakfast and an even better talk about life in the region and further away. We could do as we liked within the house and compared to other places we stayed in NZ, Abracadabra belonged to the once we will keep in very good remembrance.

  • Val and her husband Bryden are wonderful hosts. We so enjoyed visiting and sharing stories with them. Bryden has a wickedly wonderful sense of humor! The home, guest room, and neighborhood are simply beautiful and first class. We had a rental car, so did not get to test out the bus service. The area and climate are also excellent. Don't miss the hike up Mount Maunganui and the nearby beach. We wish we had been able to stay longer and would be happy to return someday. Thank you Val and Bryden.
