Twenty minutes to Mt Maunganui's stunning beaches, walks, hot pools, shops & cafes.
Twenty minutes to Tauranga Airport, offering domestic flights throughout New Zealand.
Twenty minutes to historic Katikati.

Tauranga is as much a quiet recreational playground as it is a thriving business & rural community. From the gentle harbour waters to great surf beaches, its fishing and diving grounds to scenic bush walks, kayaking, golf courses, wineries, restaurants, cafes, shopping & much more.
Your hosts Debbie & Eugene would love the opportunity to share what our beautiful area has to offer. We are well travelled & understand what it is to be away from home. We have lots of local knowledge & ideas of how to fill your days. We look forward to seeing you.

Thank you so much guys for our lovely holidays! Amazingly relaxing views! The apartment is exactly as described. It situated away from busy city life but at the same time close to everything. Home made jams and muffins were a delicious surprise. Eugene and Debbie are very welcoming hosts we will definitely recommend their place to anyone who will be interested.
One of the highlights during our New Zealand trip was the stay at Eugene's and Debbie's home. To mention is a very cosy and comfortable apartment with all amenties you even would not expect, a quiet and relaxing countryside location with a beautiful view down to Tauranga and the sea and most important Debbie and Eugene, we always enjoyed to have a nice chat with. Eugene had excellent recommendations what we could do. We can highly recommend the place and would like to come back in the future, but then staying for more days. Thank you very much for the way you care for your guests. Your hospitality is unfortunately not that often to be found.
