Very comfy, friendly, fun little home near the beach in a lovely neighbourhood. Sam (dog) & I always have friends around and projects on the go, making improvements to my little home. I have a second bedroom available if there's a group of you. Although not instant book I will confirm as quickly as possible.

The space

Very close to the beach, near to Bayfair shopping centre and on the bus route. Baypark stadium, Baywave swimming and gym facility are also nearby. I can offer a little twin room for extra guests/children, 10 min drive to climb the lovely Mount Maunganui :)

Guest access

Unlimited internet. Help yourself to tea, coffee, breakfast cereal and toast.

Interaction with guests

Love friends and good company always people around and things going on. I like to learn about places and share information about the Mount and NZ. Happy to hang out but equally respect guest's privacy :)

Really close to the beach, Helen's place was lovely. Helen greeted us warmly at the door and had all of our rooms ready to go with beds dressed and towels waiting, despite us booking with little notice. Free breakfast the next day was great!

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 was a lovely person to stay with relaxed, friendly, easy going and a generous and kind spirit. I was grateful for the peace and quiet, and space just to be. I love the moderness of the house, and it was very clean which I appreciated. I felt very welcome and at home at Helen's. One of the best Air B N B's I've stayed at. 3

We had a great time staying at Helen's house. Even though she was away she made everything very easy for us to stay. Great location near the beach. We went surfing at Mt Manganui and loved it. Sam the dog is very friendly too. A very clean and pleasent house to stay in.

Just one night here in Tauranga with Helen. Nice place and Helen was very helpful. She even called her friend to find out the best restaurant in the area for vegetarians. Sam the dog was also a friendly little chap. Thanks.

Helen made my mother & I feel most at home. We mostly had the place to ourselves which was unexpected, but she popped in enough to give us some pointers for the local area. Situated in a nice quiet street and just a walk away from the beach which was lovely. Definitely recommend to say hi to Helen should you want a cosy home to stay in while in the area.
