This is our family home, however the entire ground floor is self contained from the rest of the house (just an internal staircase).
The ground floor has 2 x twins and one double. You have your own kitchen and 2 bathrooms (one is ensuite to twin room). Available is one Double Room.
We are 2 minutes from sea . We are on a picturesque peninsular, 20 minutes from trendy Tauranga and Mount Maunganui.
We also have a chocolate Labrador but he stays with us in the top part of the house and has no access to your area.
There are plenty of things to do in Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty. Choose from water adventures like white-water rafting, kayaking, dolphin encounters, parasailing and (email hidden)om the beaches and harbour to a thriving kiwifruit industry and Maori culture, the coastal Bay of Plenty is a great holiday destination….Its very unspoilt however in town there is a lot of nightlife.
Beware though you definately need your own transport there is only one bus a day from our piece of paradise to town! we are 2.5 hours from Auckland and 1.5 hours from Rotorua and 2 hours from Taupo!
The entire area (using all rooms) sleeps 6-7
Jackie and Steve were gracious and very interesting hosts, making us both feel instantly welcome. They went out of their way to make things easy for us and treated us like friends rather than flying visitors. The house is filled with interesting and artistic curiosities, as well as Steve's beautiful photography. We had privacy, convenience and flexibility. A cut above a lot of what else is out there.
We had a ball staying with Jackie and husband Steve. They made us so very welcome in their home. They gave us a tour of the local area and were very informative about the local area. We spent quite a bit of time with them in the evenings, (Sorry if were kept you from your work) and felt we had known them for ages as they were so friendly. We were able to have a choice of rooms, which were all decorated lovely and a good space. The facilities in our own kitchen, were amazing too, there wasn't a thing that we needed that wasn't there. The house has lovely views of the water from upstairs, and is in a very nice quiet town. I would highly recommend staying with these great people, in their lovely home.
Jackie and Steve left us the key to their beuatiful home while they were away. We were overwhelmed by this generosity and would have loved to meet them.

As a lecturer in tourism and travel and a wedding celebrant I Moved from South East London to Tauranga NZ in 1991 . Married to Steve who is a wedding photographer and artist (he is a finalist in this years World of Wearable Art held in Wellington) and we have 4 boys, Luke, Michael and Jordon and Conor all who have now flown the nest and are either doing there own OE or at Uni! We have 1 brown lab, named Chaka, a one eyed cat and a canary!!
A Great life...we just love having visitors, every NZ winter we have kiwi fruit workers staying from Malaysia, the same girls come every year we are like their 2nd home, they stay March-October, consequently we only have the rooms empty for the NZ summer which is perfect for travellers.
Steve and I both love fishing ( we have small motor boat) and love diving for Scallops, we are literally a stone's throw from the beach, the views are spectacular from the houseplus we have an awesome boat club built over the sea which visitors can use, we have a restraunt and small store, not much else....Omokoroa is so pretty and so safe!
