You'll love our place because it is close to the city centre, waterfront walks, parks, 10 minutes to the airport and the Mount beach and resort area. The location, we're close to everything, the ambiance - the feeling of luxury in a secure retreat and convenient to all the city shops, bars, restaurants and nightlife. We have thermal pools, theatres, beachsports and boat trips - everything for you to enjoy....
And of course your obliging hosts..

The space

Our self-contained apartment has beautiful new furnishings and bedding,
Queen double beds in both rooms (see photos of wall bed in lounge ) with Egyptian cotton sheets and lovely linen. The new kitchenette has DeLongi
appliances and a coffee machine. Patio has a great barbeque for sizzling
your steaks and fresh caught fish if you're lucky.
Just down our driveway is the waterside walk/jogging and cycle track which takes you all the way to the CBD. A lovely walk with views to the Mount and the visiting cruise ships.
If you feel like just relaxing there is a large flat screen TV with access to all freeview programs plus Sky channels including Sky Sport (for the Rugby) and Netflix for more movies .
WiFi also available for your Internet connection. Just ask for the password.

Guest access

As this is a self-contained apartment you have complete privacy with your own key. Parking is safely off the drive and on our property. When you arrive we will meet you and show you around, where everything is and operates.

Interaction with guests

We will be on call if you require any assistance during your stay. We live upstairs so just ring the bell. We can assist with directions, suggestions
for the local and further area, restaurants, medical, banks, sports, touring etc. or just a cup of tea and a glass of wine and a tall story to tell!

Other things to note

For the keen walkers - as we are on a hill overlooking the water there is a strong uphill walk back to the closest restaurants, bars and takeaways
on Cameron. Most of this is avoidable if you take the waterside walkway back to Elizabeth St. But in effect most things you will require are within a mile or so(3-5 min drive). The expressway passes close by and can put you in the Mount area in 10 minutes driving. Some traffic noise can be heard during the day from this but not enough to annoy.

A wonderful place to stay. Exceptionally clean, beds were super comfortable, great shower, large TV screen with full sky channels was a treat. Location fantastic for our two focuses - the hospital and Te Puna. Rod and Lorna go beyond expectations for breakfast provisions (great tea, coffee bags, nespresso machine, bread, butter, spreads, fresh fruit and milk) - fantastic. I didn't get to meet Lorna, but Rod was a super host. Very warm, lovely to chat to and a perfect balance of being there to help, but leaving their guests to their own devices. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

You would be foolish to not stay here. Everything was perfect! Coffee and breakfast in the morning, wonderfully firm mattresses, perfect proximity to town and other amenities. Would definitely stay here again without a second throught!

Rod & Lorna's home is in great central location, close to Tauranga CBD and an easy drive to Mt Maunganui. The fridge was stocked with yummy breakfast foods which was great as it meant we didn't need to venture out each morning. The motorway is close but we couldn't hear it from inside the accommodation. On a non accommodation note, anyone visiting Tauranga must try Yoku Sushi, AMAZING!

Response from Rod & Lorna:
Thanks Laura and Greg. Great to meet you both. Glad you had a good time. Haven't tried that Sushi place but we'll definitely give it a go. All the best, Rod and Lorna

Had a wonderful stay with Rod and Lorna. Rod met us at check in and was very friendly and helpful. The space was well-stocked and cozy. Access to town was easy by car. Walking to town was ok but there's a pretty steep hill out of the neighborhood. But either way everything was very close and the house is tucked away so it's nice and quiet.

Hi there, we're travelers. Rod has traveled most of his life, which originated in Scotland, but Lorna was born just over the hill in Te Aroha. We've traveled together through many countries, working as Luxury charter boat skipper and hostess, moteliers and in many businesses in many countries, so we know what makes travelling people happy. We love to meet people from all walks of life and cultures. We can help you have a busy/quiet/exhausting/relaxing stay at our
comfortable secure accommodation. We're here to assist and help you enjoy.
