Helen's house is very comfortable and in a very pleasant area. Helen is one of the friendliest people we have met and she will welcomed us into her home very warmly. The house is clean, open and close to intersting places, shops and restaurants. The beach is 2 minutes walk and McLaren falls a short drive and well worth a visit. Helen's dog, Sam, is well behaved, gentle and loves to be patted but will not make a nuisance of himself. Overall, Helen made our stay one to remember

Helen is very very helpful and friendly. The house was lovely, and the arrangements and cleanliness was awesomeeeee!!! And the room was extremely cozy and comfortable. We came down to Tauranga for the first time, and the stay at Helen's place made it absolutely memorable :) Thank you so much for making our stay so smooth and sweet.
