Wonderful home with everything great. Had a nice talk with Heather and David during the breakfast about stories in China. Would be happy to live here again when visiting Tauranga next time.

Heather and David were very nice, helpful and great to talk to. The house is very nice and a park being literally at the back door is cool. The breakfast and dinner were great too.

Heather and David made us particularly welcome and very quickly realised that we were both absolutely shattered after a particularly bad journey down from Auckland and so left us in peace just to crash out for an hour. Particularly impressed by Heathers consideration of the day (Good Friday) and the goings on in Tauranga that night to write to us and offering an evening meal before we had even thought about it.

The house is very cosy and comfortable. It is already our second time staying at Heather and David's place. They are very welcoming and helpful, and the breakfast was really good. Thank you very much for everything!

Dear Heather & David, Two weeks in New Zealand, three days with you. From our point of view (mom, son, doughter) the best time of our trip. You both made us feel home. We will miss the interesting conversations every evening, the breakfast we have had together, the chance to meet one of your best friends, Heathers cooking- and Davis grilling skills - all in all the time with you. It was hard to say goodbye but we would be thankful for seeing you again. Feel welcome @ our place in Germany, any time. Marius, Louisa & Claudia
