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.
Karen is a great host! We really enjoyed our stay in her beautiful cottage. It had a lovely garden and we even had a bbq. We highly recommend this beautiful cottage for relaxation and a peaceful stay.
Karen's abode is beautifully decorated, very clean & cosy with everything you need. She & Susanna were extremely friendly & helpful, we had a great time staying there, would highly recommend it.
Très agréable séjour, maison très bien tenue avec toutes les commodités.
Karen est très disponible et vous donne tous les conseils pour porfiter de la région
We had a brilliant time in this 1920's bungalow, beautiful backyard, neighbourhood, and well equiped everything. The heating pad on top of the mattress was special in the morning, when it was cool. I would highly recommend this place! Karen does tours, and is very knowledgeable on New Zealand. Enjoy!

About the Host, Karen
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 (website hidden)
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!
