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 :-)
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 :-))
If you are looking for long term rent, please mention it to me, as I might be able to arrange for a longer stay :-)
Elena's place is amazing. I am very happy and fortunate to have stayed here for a week and to have met Elena. All the people I met in the area were very friendly. It is in a great location, it is very safe, minutes away from the beach, shopping center, and supermarkets. From the very beginning Elena was helping me with my trip and how to get around town. I felt really welcomed here by Elena and recommend her place to other travelers. Thank you Elena for allowing me to stay here.
My experience at Elena's home was a very smooth, enjoyable one, and the great location , a few minutes walk to the beach ,and the bus stop was also easy walk to.Her home was clean and cosy.Elena and Paul are nice,It was a pleasure to meet them, stay with them and talk.Highly recommended
If you're looking for a place where you can feel at home - choose Elena's house. This is the place where you have to stay when you want to experience the lovely, relaxing Mount Maunganui. Close to the beach, just a few minutes walk to Georges Cafe and you have everything you need. I didn't feel like a guest, after 1h I arrived I felt like a friend :) thanks to Elena! She is a great host and helped me with everything I needed. I had 2 awesome weeks with you and in your warm and welcoming house! Thanks for having me here, you made my NZ experience complete! Can't wait to be back!
To be able to live with Elena for me was the best thing that could happen :) I've never traveled alone far. I feel at Elena from the beginning warmly welcomed and at home.
Mount Mounganui is a great place to be. I can only recommend everyone to discover and learn about New Zealand and Airbnb nice people and rent in this way a property.
Staying with Elena was a very welcoming and relaxing experience! Everyone was quite quick to offer advice and any help I might need and always made me feel included by involving me in trips to the city or the supermarket or even dinner. Definitely would recommend staying here for anyone who wants to feel right at home, while being close to everything you need!
Loved to stay at Elena's! She was very welcoming, communication before arriving was great and gave me wonderful tips to enjoy the best of Tauranga!
Elena and her friends make you feel just like home and are great for having a conversation with a cup of coffee.
If you're coming to Tauranga, their house is the perfect option: perfect place, close to the beach, great for relaxing.
Highly recommended host!
Thanks for your wonderful review. I hope your travels ended fantastically :) and you've made it back home save and sound! It's getting hotter by the minute in Mount Maunganui and the beach goers are all coming out from their winter hibernation. It's brilliant.
It's been very lovely having you here. I hope you'll make it over here again some time!
Elena was a lovely and caring host! I really enjoyed spending time with her. Her home is clean, cosy and tastefully furnished. The bed I used was huge and comfy. Moreover I was allowed to use a bicycle to explore beautiful Mount Mauganui. I would have loved to stay longer than only 3 nights.
Elena's home was wonderful, great location, easy walk to the beach, easy access to the buses to Tauranga, longer walk to the Mount or an easy bus ride there, inviting kitchen and living room, and good size bedroom with desk, closet, chest of drawers. Though Elena was enjoying her own vacation for part of the time that I was there, her home was very welcoming, great fireplace, great garden, and a wonderful roommate at the time who was very helpful and made the stay easy and enjoyable. I was there a month and had a great time; I'd go back anytime! Thanks Elena and roommate for a great stay!
