Our house is a true home!It's very easy to feel comfortable and relaxed amongst the stylish cosy interior. And the garden 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's place was perfect! Good price, very cute and comfortable, clean and very close to the beach!
Elena was away during my stay but her roommate was really nice and helpful. He even cooked me dinner :)
If you go to Mount Maunganui you should definitely consider staying at Elena's.
Elena was a great host. She was very friendly and I felt really welcome in her nice and tidy house. The bed was very comfortable and the room very quiet. I can only warmly recommand this accomodation.
Elena is a thoughtful and welcoming host. She communicates well to ensure check in went smoothly and that my stay was comfortable. She is open and friendly that it made it easy to relax and enjoy being in her home. The house is exactly as it looks in the picture; it is light and inviting and I loved spending time on her patio. It is close to the beach and town center. I highly recommend a stay at Elena's.
Elena was a great host who made me feel at home. The place was very clean & tastefully furnished. I would recommend staying here if your looking for somewhere at Mt Maunganui.
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.
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.
