This is our family home where my partner, 12 year old son and myself reside permanently. Our home is a 5 minute walk to the supermarket, 5 minute walk to popular Tay Street beach and 15-20 minute walk to shops, bars and eateries in downtown Mt Maunganui. We're a busy family with work, school, sports and outdoor activities but are home most evenings to be able to assist with any travel information you may require and I am always available on mobile/Air BnB app.
The bedroom is your space during your stay and will be clean and tidy for your stay. There will be some of our personal things stored in the wardrobe but there will also be room for you to hang clothes if required and drawers available for your use if you are staying longer term and wish to unpack your bags. You are welcome to use the kitchen. The washing machine and clothes line are also free to use upon request. The very private and spacious backyard is the highlight of this property. There is a large deck and grassed area that is a shared area with our family. You're welcome to enjoy relaxing here during your stay.

I will be available via mobile/Air BnB App to help with any questions you may have prior or during your stay. Feel free to ask when at home also.
We have a cat that lives on the premises. She's very friendly.
We have a resident kitty cat called Pepe who loves cuddles and would love to be fed a couple of times a day. Please don't stay here if you don't love cats :-)
No tents or extra sleep area's to be set up in back yard. The maximum people this home will cater for is 6.
Please respect our neighbours and keep the noise down after 10pm as they have young children. Thank you.
Hi, myself, my partner and my 12 year old son who live here are very much into the outdoors. My son loves and pretty much lives for surfing so we spend a fair bit of time at the beach. He also plays rugby, cricket and is involved in junior surf life saving. I do a bit of running and we go hiking, running and biking in the bush sometimes. We love taking our little campervan on adventures to new and exciting places at the beach and in the bush, especially in the summer months. Week days/evenings are usually fairly hectic for us but we are home based after school, work, and sports practices. We love hosting guests from different countries as we've done a fair bit of travelling ourselves and love hearing about other people's lives/interests/travels. We still have a lot of countries yet to discover though! It's difficult to say what our favourite travel spots have been as all travel is exciting because it's different to where we live. Generally it would involve a great beach, hopefully some mountains and friendly locals! We have hosted adult international students from Switzerland & Japan a few times in the past and now through Air BnB Canadians, Austrians, Germans, Australians and of course New Zealanders! Our hosting style is fairly relaxed in the sense that you come and go as you please. We're also more than happy to help with any local or travel advice if required.
