Matt & Tina have thought of everything guests may need. Their house is in a quiet, residential neighbourhood. The room was spotless and the facilities provided were excellent. The bed was perfect. We had breakfast on the sun-filled patio. We could have stayed longer! Thanks again. Jeff.

Very comfortable and practically equipped apartment. On road parking on verge but safe quiet area. Nice covered patio area to sit. Location is few minutes drive from town but on bus route. Most enjoyable and friendly helpful hosts.

We stayed for 2 nights while we participated in Terawera trail run. Mattew's place was more than perfect... close to Te Puia where run starts, Super comfortable and cosy room to rest well before and after the run. They have eye for details.

Very lovely, helpful couple with a big heart for travelers!! The accommodation was warm, clean and very well equipped. We liked especially the heating lamp in the bathroom and the heatable cosy bed!:) It is close to the red wood and the Maori Center. Communication was always directly and super fast! Five stars for Mattew and Tina!!

Matthew and Tina were lovely hosts. They met us as we arrived even though we had delayed our arrival by two hours. They gave us great food ideas in the area and even loaned us a cloth map of the Redwoods area we would be mountain biking in the following day. That map helped us several times in the forest. The bed and pillows were so comfortable, we slept every night though, not often true for us! Coffee, apples, and tea were provided and allowed us to relax each morning rather than dash off to a cafe. The room was spacious and easily accommodated our stuff and needs for several days. Their location was close yo town center and many of the attractions and activities we planned to enjoy. All in all it was perfect and we highly recommend them as hosts and look forward to them visiting us in the USA. .

A lovely place to stay in the hills near to the city of Rotorua. The walking tracks nearby, and Matthew's local tips, were great. Super comfy bed and facilities, too - cosy and warm!

My wife and I are professionals from Rotorua. We enjoy being tourists in other places and we love road trips up and down our country, exploring and discovering as we go. Our favourite tourist destinations have been Argentina and Brasil and of course our home country, Aotearoa - New Zealand.
Essential to our wellbeing are family, our culture and the arts, water sports and biking, good food, and appreciating life.
We enjoy being airbnb hosts and like to meet people, to share experiences, stories and laughter.
