Val and Bryden were very welcoming, and we had great conversation while watching the cricket world cup on tv. The bedroom and bathroom were comfortable and they also have a beautiful kitchen and living room area. Breakfast was very nice as well.
Val and Bryden made us feel very welcome. We shared some lovely times over a glass of wine. Val even cooked us a fabulous lamb dinner one evening! The bedroom was quite comfortable, and we were able to make ourselves comfortable in their lovely home.
Incredible stay, felt welcome from the initial phone call to the good bye. Photos don't do justice for the place. Individual locked room with a private dedicated toilet / bathroom with a tub.
My sister and I stayed with Val and Bryndan for two nights. We couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome. The room was immaculate as was the bathroom which we had sole use of. The bed was very comfortable and everything was spotless.
Val and Bryndan have a beautiful home and a fabulous dog called Monty. They kindly offered us a glass of wine and we had some great chats. Breakfast was delicious.They were generous with their knowledge of Tauranga and what to do and see as well as other things to do around New Zealand.
Tauranga town centre is a short drive away and is very beautiful as is the Mount which is well worth a walk up. We had two lovely meals in places near the house that were a short walk away.
We would highly recommend staying with Val and Bryndan.
Val & Bryden are lovely hosts who offer a great value for money experience. Their home is very modern. The room is lovely & quiet, with a comfortable bed & hotel quality linen. You also have a bathroom all to yourself. Breakfast is very nice too. We also loved making a fuss of Monty their Schnauzer dog.
Val (Brydon & Monty) were delightful hosts who welcomed us into their home (particularly Monty!). It was a pleasure to sit each morning and chat about the sights we had seen on our travels and what we would do today, etc.
Thanks to Val, we took the challenge to climb the Mount and enjoy the vista from the peak, well worth the site of Tauranga; eat the best fish & chips in town and soothe the bodies in the hot spring baths.
Tauranga has a lot to offer the tourist and 'Abracadabra" is a very pleasurable part of this stay.
thanks Ken and Tricia.
This B&B was so nice, we had the impression to spend two days with friends. It was a real pleasure to speak with our guests in their so charming and very clean house. We recommanded the breakfast!
Val was one of the best hosts I've had the pleasure of staying with! She was very flexible with my arrival time, and extremely helpful with providing information about the area. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation over breakfast. I highly recommend staying at Val's place!
We spent a lovely two days staying with Val and Bryden. They were wonderful hosts, a very interesting couple, friendly and helpful, and a great source of local knowledge about places to eat, visit etc. They were also quick to invite us to join them for a meal, a beer, or to watch tennis (Australian open) on television. Their house is very clean, spacious and quiet, with wi-fi access and a comfy bed, all within easy driving reach of Tauranga and Mount Maunganui. We highly recommend this as an affordable and comfortable home-away-from-home.
Our stay in Tauranga was great! Val is a wonderful host - very knowledgeable, kind, friendly, and accommodating. Our bathroom and bedroom were impeccably clean and comfortable. Val and her husband prepared a great breakfast and gave us some useful travel tips. We would highly recommend this home to anyone!
Val is a wonderful woman who I have enormous respect for, not just because she is my mother but because of her motivation, interests and enthusiasm for life. She spent many years as a travel agent and has travelled extensively and continues to do so in retirement. You will love her home and the hospitality she will show you. She will definitely be full of help with local knowledge and the country in general. Vals home is always immaculate. The location is great and easy access to Tauranga, Mount Maunganui and all of the places you will want to go.
