Heike and Brian are delightful hosts, they have a wonderfully comfortable home with views across the town. We enjoyed a convivial meal together while hearing stories about there many travels and adventures. I would definitely recommend this option for travellers with their own transport who enjoy an opportunity to meet interesting hosts.
Heike and Brian are lovely people with a warm welcoming home. The facilities for guests are very well laid out with the bedroom, toilet and bathroom all located in an out of the way private space on one end of the house. Brian especially is a fund of information and we poured over maps for hours working out best routes and sites to see. We were very fortunate to meet them and when we return to New Zealand we will be very pleased to meet them again!
Heike and Brian were exceptional hosts, went above and beyond, and we were so grateful! After a long day we arrived at their beautiful home to a lovely dinner - Thank you! Their home was warm and welcoming and our room was private with gorgeous views. If you want to share good conversation in a peaceful setting, this is the place.
Heike and Brian are excellent hosts! They invited us for dinner, we had very interesting conversation and their place is perfect: quiet, spacious, clean and besides that with the beautiful art made by Heike. Breakfast was delicious! Unfortuntely we stayed only one night, would definitively come back!
Heike and Brian were superb hosts. They are both fantastically interesting people who made me feel like part of the family. Heike's textile art is world class and Brian cooks the best venison I have ever eaten! Their house is a bit outside of town, but if you have a car it is easy to get to and is a lovely peaceful oasis. I only wish I could have stayed longer.
Amazing experience!!! I cannot speak highly enough about this lodge. Heike &Bryan are so warm and friendly and passionate about what they do. The scenery is beautiful. And the house is clean, spacious and cozy. We had one of the best meals on our trip here as well! Great breakfast conversation the next morning! Arriving as strangers, leaving as friends…an experience money just can't buy.
We stayed with Heike and Bryan for couple of days and it was the best
part of our holiday in New Zealand. These people are just wonderful!
Bryan is a great storyteller and Heike will take a good care of you. Their house is not only in beautiful location but it is also comfortable and has a lovely view. Big garden keeps the terrace cool even during the warm summer days. We had many memorable evenings with them and their hospitality and kindness will stay with us forever. Thank you so much for making this time so special for us!
The best AirBnB in New Zealand, probably also in the world ;)
Absolutely fabolous place - amazing house and garden!
The house is very spacious, sunny! The bedroom was very nice and the bed was very comfortable! The bathroom is very clean and nice!
Absolutely TOP GRADE! :)
I had fantastic time there - all was very relaxing.
Heike and Bryan were absolutely fantastic, very friendly and welcoming!
I will never forget this week with them!
I can only recommend them to any traveller from all around the World!
Thank you Jude,
Have a great start in Hamilton and all the best for your Future!

Heike's place has been a wonderful experience. It is not just the accomodation itself - a modern house, spacious and with lots of enjoyable amenities in the hills over Tauranga - but most importantly the hosts Heike and Bryan. We felt more than welcomed, rather almost like real friends. In a five star ranking they would deserve six!
It was also for us a great experience to have you here and celebrate with you. Hope to see you once again!
With kind regards, Heike and Bryan
Thank you so much, Heike and Bryon, for the wonderful time I could spend with you in your lovely house on Christmas. I had the feeling to be part of the family from the first second. You are wonderful hosts and I hope, we see us again. I can recommend this place so much, that I want to tell everybody, to spend the holidays in this house with a beautyful view over the Welcome Bay and a wonderful surrounding! The beaches are very close and Tauranga shows everything you need! Stay with Heike and Bryon and you will get first in the morning a cup of tee and Vegemite on your bed and after that a very delicious breaky! Even a doggybag was offered! Don' t miss that place! You will find Kaitemako:)
It was also nice to have you in our place. You were really a part of our family on Christmas Day! We wouldn't like to miss you!
