Sussana was very welcoming and friendly, she even picked us up and dropped us off to the bus station. The house itself is very spacious and well fitted out with good kitchen facilities and commodities. The downside was the bed which was soo creaky and uncomfortable , we couldn't get a good night sleep. As we visited in the winter the apartment felt cold, and due to the lack of ventilation we needed to keep the windows open at all times, the heaters supplied just take a while to heat it up. The apartment wasn't the cleanest also. I would however recommend this place for a short visit or maybe in the summer, as the location is excellent.

Had a wonderful stay at the beautiful Lauriston Cottage. Great location and so well equipped, with a beautiful garden to enjoy the lovely weather. Very peaceful for a great nights sleep, couldn't ask for more. Hope to come back again soon.. Thanks Rob and Angela ;)

Lauriston Cottage is a great place to stay and a real home from home. It was light and spacious and the photos really don't do it justice. It was lovely to have a private garden to sit out in and the kitchen was exceptionally well equipped. I throughly recommend a stay here - thank you Karen and Susannah.

We had a great stay at Karen's place and would recommend this place to everyone. It was clean and spacious! 2 thumbs up for having a washer/dryer as well as a kitchen with cookware. We were able to walk to downtown to buy fresh seafood or head down to the local countdown market for groceries (15 minute walk). Wifi worked fine and it was a very safe and quiet neighborhood.

Hi I am Australian and have been living in New Zealand for 3 years. I think New Zealand is a stunningly beautiful country and offers a relaxed and easy lifestyle. I trained as a school teacher (many many moons ago) and I ran an outdoor adventure education business in Australia for 25 years.

I moved here for a change of pace. I now run a cycle tour company with my partner and we take tourists on cycle tours around our beautiful area and other exciting places in New Zealand. We love it! Cycling is the pollution solution! Check us out on fr

I have 2 grown up children - my son is a Doctor and lives in Australia and my daughter is studying Acting and living in London. We are a global family. We love travelling and exploring new places and meeting new people from all around the world.

Hoping to meet you here in beautiful Tauranga soon!
