We live in a newly established neighbourhood amongst similar executive quality built homes. Bethlehem is peaceful, has some nice walking areas and is within easy access of local shops and shopping centres with the CBD approximately 7 minutes drive away. There are hot pools close by and a lovely park with a pond where it is nice to sit under the trees on a warm day and feed the ducks.
Almost directly across the road from our house is a bus stop where you can hail the local bus. Buses run approximately every half hour into the city and cost around $2.00 per trip. Local taxis have been upgraded and fares to the city range upwards of $15.
The local domestic airport is about 20 minutes by car.

We stayed at Carol's and Gary's
modern house for three nights. They were easy going and friendly hosts - we had some nice conversations! The kitchen, bathroom and bedroom were very clean and well equipped! Thanks for your hospitality!
Carol and Gary were excellent hosts. They went above and beyond to make our short visit to Tauranga memorable! The communication with Carol was prompt and convenient and the accommodation was exactly as described. Thank you so much Carol and Gary! We would highly recommend this homey room in Tauranga!
Carol und John sind superfreundliche Gastgeber. Die beiden sind Sehr locker im Umgang und haben meiner Freundin und mir den Aufenthalt sehr angenehm gemacht.
Wir können den Aufenthalt dort auf jeden Fall empfehlen.
Carol and her husband were very friendly. Their home with private bath is modern and very clean. We had a very pleasant breakfast with an interesting chat. Thank you Carol and Gary
To say this location is fabulous is a huge understatement. Hosts Carol and Gary are relaxed, very friendly and incredibly helpful with directions and things to do in the area. Their home with private bath is beautiful, modern and very clean. We were sorry to leave after 4 days of living in comfort.
Carol was a wonderful host. We stayed only one night, but both Carol and her husband were most gracious.

About the Host, Carol
Gary & I are a professional couple. Gary works for the Ministry of Primary Industries as a Senior Fishery Officer, a position he has held for 33 years. He loves fishing and diving and knows many great local spots. I am a local Real Estate Agent with the largest privately owned agency in the Bay of Plenty.

Another favourite past time is going to the Cinema. Obviously music is a big part of our lives and we are always keen to support local talent.
Our home is a modern contemporary home with large open plan living. We live in a great neighbourhood, 7 minutes from the Central Business & Shopping district. The local bus services stops two doors up from us and is a great way to get around our city.
