BACK AGAIN IN 2017: where Kiwi's love to holiday, treat yourself to 'time out' to enjoy how Mounties (locals) live beside the ocean. Enjoy 'our beach paradise'; sunny courtyard, BBQ for use, surf beach over road, enjoy the sunrise or cocktails at sunset !

The space

It's a casual beach house, cosy and comfortable, for those that want to just simply enjoy the real Kiwi way of life at home. Private en-suite facilities, and a separate toilet from host's living space, that can ensure your own quiet relaxation. Make yourself at home in sunny courtyard garden in morning over coffee, or enjoy a wine/BBQ at the end of the day in the backyard 'BBQ and Beer Garden'. One of NZ's most beautiful (surf patrolled) beaches, Omanu Beach is a quick 2 minute walk down beach access 4.4 - no parking hassles ! This beach is accessible directly across the road, so you only need to take your towel and come back after a swim for a shower (or cold drinks from your own fridge and head back to the beach !) - plenty of flexibility.

Guest access

Access down private way (off-street) and directly through guests private gate into sunny garden with comfortable outdoor furniture for relaxing in daytime; morning coffee, or alfresco evening BBQ. You have your own (private) fridge for food storage, tea and coffee facilities. Off-street safe car parking, public bus route nearby, 2 mins walk (dairy, fish and chip shop, beach café), supermarket 5 mins. Distance from built-up high-rise "Main Beach" party crowds (4km distance) along iconic Oceanbeach Road. Close-by to Tauranga airport (5 min drive), easy access (1km) to main expressway across Harbour Bridge to City.

Interaction with guests

Friendly local, to be your host and can guide you to explore the best the area can offer, generous in sharing my knowledge and time, as much or as little interaction as required. There's also a laid back little beach dog who loves meeting people (so if you're missing your own "Fur Baby" at home this is the place to come for a loveable new fur friend !) and who loves nothing more than sharing daily long beach walks or showing off her beach Frisbee skills to impress - she may even show you her secret picnic spot in sand dunes....

Fab place to stay if you want to be a stone's throw from the amazing beach, walk to the mount but safe and quiet neighbourhood. J is the consummate hostess with an amazing knowledge of the area and and eye for detail. Everything was beautifully done. Would highly recommend.

A superb quiet location yet only about 100m from a stunning beach and within easy walking distance of the bars and restaurants of the Mount. But that is not the star attraction - host J and her dog Savvy are the real stars! Great hosts, outstanding breakfast and an extensive knowledge of all things New Zealand makes for great conversation and plenty of insider tips. And make sure you book in with J for an evening trip to the beach to finish the perfect day in the Bay of Plenty!

Great location, right across the street from a great beach. Basic accommodation but if you are missing anything Jan is present and willing to help if possible. She is also a great cook, amazing breakfast!

I'd like to nominate Jan as 'airbnb hostess of the year', as she demonstrated all of what you'd wish for: to be warmly welcomed into someone's home, to know that your host (Jan) has carefully thought about what would make a traveller happy (the little things, some flowers from the garden, a beach towel ready to go in a bag), the expert local knowledge, which was offered generously, the delicious breakfast. Apart from that I had the best night's sleep in weeks (comfy bed), loved the 5 minute walking distance to the beach and the quiet neighbourhood. There's a gorgeous little dog in the house and I'd be happy to offer her a ride in my car (next time...).

From the beginning my host was very informative about the area as well as the travel experience that i could have getting to Omanu Beach from Auckland. The room and space afforded me was clean easily accessible at all times and very close to the beach and amenities I traveled there for. My host went over and above what I was expecting making me feel welcome at all times and provided me with local knowledge of the area. I even had the pleasure of exploring the Mount and township with my hosts. All in all a great time and will be returning soon.

Lovely house in a lovely part of the world. There is a large part of the house that was exclusively used by myself which was great. Big room with a lovely homely feel to the house.
