Our house is a true home!It's very easy to feel comfortable and relaxed amongst the stylish cosy interior. And the garden with all its flowers and butterflies is a visitors favourite when enjoying a coffee and breakfast on the couch on the deck.
Located right where you want to be in Mount Maunganui close to the downtown area!
This house is perfect for travellers who want to check out Mount Maunganui for a short period or (whoever falls in love with this place, like I did) a longer period.
The house is spacious and private. Located close to beach, shopping center, downtown Mount Maunganui and bus stop, it is a perfect place to come and feel at home!
There is internet access, kitchen, fire place for winter time, a nice sunny deck and garden, and everything else you really need to be comfortable.
The bedroom is simple and small but offers enough comfort for a lovely stay.
The ocean and beach are only a hop away from my front door so it's nice and easy to go for swims in the ocean or walks along the beach to relax.
Come and visit and get the chance to stay in a perfect holiday home just a couple of streets away from the ocean, smelling the salty sea when you wake up in the morning and hearing the waves crashing when the surf is up!
Two very independent cats hang out with us at times.
The house has a shared kitchen, bathroom (with a separate toilet) and living space and our guests are more then welcome to use the kitchen as if they are at home. You are more then welcome to cook with the fresh herbs from my herb garden and if you are lucky you visit at a time were yummy fresh organic vegetables from my garden are ready to be enjoyed. I have a bike available to use and a washing machine, too.
All I am asking of visitors is to be respectful with what the house has to offer :-)
Interaction with Guests
I am a busy bee, but I love meeting new people and sharing a wine or dinner with visitors when I can. I can't promise I am always around but I am always available for questions through texts, if I should be out at work :-)
The neighbourhood is slightly located away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything you could wish for. I have a bike for you to use and there is a bus stop very, very close to my front door. I love my little local cafe called George which is only a 5 minute walk away, located right next to the beach.
Bus stop right next to my house.
A bike for you to use.
Save parking available on the street and possibly in the driveway, depending.
The Tauranga airport is a 2 minute drive away (it's a very small airport, don't worry you won't hear the planes).
If it's convenient and I am available I could be happy to pick you up (subject to my busy schedule :-))
Other Things to Note
If you are looking for long term rent, please mention it to me, as I might be able to arrange for a longer stay :-)
We are very considerate and respectful people and expect the same from our visitors to create a living arrangement where everyone can be comfortable. Our house is a place to feel safe and relaxed in. We love sitting around the kitchen table chatting and enjoying a wine (or tea depending on the time of day :-) and ask that you take the big partying somewhere else :-).
We ask that you clean up your own dishes, if you choose to cook here.
Elena was awesome. Very welcoming and friendly. She was easy to talk to and her place is well cared for with loads of quirky, personal touches.
The outside area is also cute and cosy, great in the sunshine.
Alles ok ! Gute Lage - nicht weit vom langen schönen Srand ! Mit dem Auto ca.5 Minuten zum Mt.Maunganui - Aussichtsberg und lebhafter Strandpromenade!
Elena created a perfect environment for guests, and nothing was left unthought of. Her and her housemate are very generous and lovely people. Description was accurate and even nicer than I imagined! Location is close enough to the beach and mount, bus stop is just at the corner.
I stayed during a language stay, for five weeks at Elenas place.
It is a beautiful house with a lot of style and a wonderful garden to chill out.
I enjoyed also to talk with her and/or mother, who stayed there to for holidays, and be thankful that they helped me to improve my English.
If I'll once come back to this awsome town, I would wish me to stay again in a such amazing place like her house.
The reservation was canceled 174 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Elena's house is much nicer in the reality than what the pictures show. Her garden is just amazing and you can enjoy the evening reading a book in total peace. The way she welcomed me was just familiar and cozy, like "feel like at home".
There is plenty of car park just outside their house or an easy bus lane coming form the town center. The beach is only 5 minutes walking distance from her place. One of the best place ever stayed! Thanks Elena for your hospitality.
Booking Elena's house was the best choice. I spend a wonderful 3 days at the beach, Mount Manganui (such an inspiring place to be and wonderful legend) the little shopping center and in the beautiful garden. Everything very nearby and well explained in Elena's emails. Living together with Elena's mum and cat Blackie went like 'seamingless'; there was - for me, and I think Martina, well balanced space for talking and listening and silence when we were at home at the same time. I love the openess of NZ people. I met a lot of people and everyone was nice and helpfull. The beach is so clean and people (from baby to elder) are enjoying, there is a lot to see. This made me very happy. Hapiness is contagious ☺. I highly recommend this place. Thank you Elena for sharing your house.
My home is where my heart is! I like to make the most of making my house in New Zealand feel like home, since MY original home is actually on the other side of the world.
I am 29 years old and enjoy living in beautiful Mount Maunganui to the fullest! The ocean and the beach are only a hop away from my house door and I like to go for swims in the ocean or walks along the beach to relax.
I love meeting travellers and making sure that they enjoy my chosen home town as much as I do.
Come and visit and get the chance to stay in a perfect holiday home just around the corner from the ocean.
