I would love to share my large comfortable home with travelers.I have recently returned from 5 months in South America where i was reminded of the importance of finding friendly hosts with local knowledge and somewhere to relax and get a good sleep.
Spacious, light filled home, just a 5 minute walk away from gorgeous Waihi Beach. Only 2 hours drive from Auckland International Airport, 1 and a half hours drive from Hamilton and 45 minutes drive to Tauranga and Mount Maunganui. Two large,. immaculately clean and private rooms with queen size beds and one room with two king single beds, a full bathroom with 2 separate WC.s , plus a private lounge area available.
A delicious breakfast of homemade granola, fruit and sourdough toast, with homemade jam is included, and can be served either on the deck or in the dining room.
Wireless internet is available throughout the house, and use of the washing machine is available.
The house is on a quiet street with a small village less than a 5 minute walk away where you will find a grocery store, shops, cafés, post office, etc.
There are two buses a day from Auckland to Tauranga that come through Waihi Beach. Or if you have a car, there is plenty of off street parking.
I am an expert on local outdoor activities and can suggest nearby fantastic walks/hikes in Karangahake Gorge, the nearby Kaimai Forest Park, and the Hauraki Cycle Trail. I have also traveled extensively throughout New Zealand and am happy to advise you about many special and less known places.
As an avid traveler, I understand what can make a trip extra special - a warm welcome, advice when needed, clean and comfortable rooms, and privacy.
I look forward to welcoming you to my home and beautiful Waihi Beach which is situated at the base of the Coromandel Peninsula and 45 minutes drive from Tauranga and Mount Maunganui.
Guests have the use of upstairs lounge and decks, the downstairs decks and garden as well as the dining room for breakfast.
Guests can make a cup of tea or coffee and there is a separate refrigerator and freezer for guest use.

I love the outdoors and making the most of the beautiful country I live in. Travel to meet people of different cultures and discovering their customs and food excites me but when at home I enjoy pottering in my garden, cooking fresh produce or swimming in the sea.
I love music, reading and hiking and am never happier than when in the outdoors in nature.
If you stay in my home you will be made welcome, provided with as much local information as you require and you will be able to relax or be pointed in the direction of the next adventure if you so wish.
