I had a great time in Tauranga - I didn't get to chat with Maureen much as I had several engagements associated with a local wedding, however the rooms were very clean and comfortable and she provided a great degree of privacy. I would recommend this listing to others!

Thank you so much Maureen and Antoine for hosting us again, this time for The international tattoo & art expo held first time in Tauranga. We were super excited to return to such a great couple-sadly we missed Maureen as she was away but wanted to say thanks to Antoine for taking care of everything. The place is so central it's perfect. They left us maps, bus timetables which made it so much easier to find and inspired us spend the next day at The Mount. A great weekend away as always. Always highly recommend . We look forward to returning ;-) Thanks again V and Chris

Thank you Maureen and Antoine for another wonderful weekend, such wonderful hosts, so friendly, inviting, accomodating and they have a beautiful place which is very central. My Husband and I have returned again and were welcomed with open arms. The room is really nice with a lovely comfy bed ,its downstairs has its own bathroom and shower. We were free to roam upstairs and have breakfast and a good chit chat with them both. We love staying with them. The place is quiet and very peaceful. We always look forward to our next stay. Highly recommended!! Thank you again V and chris

Very over priced Previous reviews mentioned a nice breakfast which has now been withdrawn Whilst the location is close to CBD I can not recommend it. I use Airbnb on a monthly basis for business so have a lot of experience in evaluating different locations. This is the worst Airbnb experience ever. The downstairs basement bedroom consisted of 2 single beds joined together.. The room smelt musty No flyscreens on windows or wall mounted ele tric mosquito repellant ensured a sleepless night The owner starting work early in the morning 0630 provides an early wake up for guests.... The shower and toilet areas which are shared with a boarder were dirty at the time of my visit Would suggest the room be completely renovated install queen size bed and flyscreens remove single beds Commercial cleaners then need to fully clean entire downstairs area to a an acceptable international standard If unable to do this suggest advertising be changed to cheap and chearfull and rate reduced to $45

Response from Maureen:
Thanks for your fussy feedback Colin, the bedroom is on entrance level to the house, Meaning of basement: "the floor of a building which is partly or entirely below ground level." you booked at the very last minute, ran in and out to check in, busy busy, didn't allow any time for us to have a conversation with you, as the profile for the room reads we DO NOT supply breakfast, and you confirmed that with me upon arrival. If you didn't like the place upon first impression you should have said that you didn't want to stay and then buggared off! I mentioned to you that the room was already set up for a couple in the weekend, so the advertisement that I have for the room is true to form, a king single bed, and we clearly state that we don't provide breakfast. There was no border living with us, so I am unsure that you had any of your facts straight about the sharing of the shower. You need to get glasses and hearing aids to get your details correct before you go slandering my house.

Maureen and Antoine are welcoming and great hosts. I travelled by bus and was able to walk there in 5 min, to find and access the home was no problem. Nice bed and lots of room for clothes. I went to Mt Maunganui by bus and was able to chat and get to know my hosts. Nice quiet area as well. I slept great after my busy days. Wish I would have stayed a bit longer. Thx for the sharing everyone!

Hello there :)
I am Maureen, I have two listings with Airbnb, this one in Ohakune, I created a lifestyle house 10 years ago, I turned a sheep paddock into this lovely setting now planted with over 200 trees and shrubs. I designed this house with the view and maximum sunshine in mind.
I invite you to experience this tranquil part of Central New Zealand and experience all that the Tongariro and Whanganui National Parks has to offer. Become inspired, exhilarated and at peace with the beautiful world we share.

Life Motto = you get what you give

My other listing is "Central on Park" In Tauranga, shared with my Partner Antoine, we invite guests to share a room in our home
