HIGHLIGHTS - exceptional views - Large house - Plenty of space - very tidy TIPS - Do not be alarmed by house shaking. This gorgeous house is near the train station and trains go by often - the comfort of pillows are not the best. Personal opinion - access to garage would have been great - found a little blood on one of the duvet covers - was not alarmed when a man entered into the house to collect rubbish bins. My kids were a little uncomfortable - had trouble with the washing machine and was not looking forward to having slight to little communication in regards to making sure the new machine was installed Overall a great location. Seeing the mount right outside the lounge windows is absolutely stunning !
Response from Owner
In reply to your comments we do have trains go past the house but they do not shake it. From time to time there can be a gentle tremor dependent on the load being carried.The pillows are all goose down and of the highest quality.We do not give access to the Garage as we have our personal items in there. There is off street parking beside the garage.All of our bedding is cleaned by professionals in Tauranga. With regard to the washing machine,it still worked perfectly for the duration of the guests stay. Even though a light showed up. We have since purchased and installed a brand new washing machine. The guest was kept informed throughout.In fact we had to delay the installation of the new washing machine as the guests were using the washing machine at time of delivery.In conclusion I have kept two comments:1/."this gorgeous house(thank you) is near the train station" this comment is completely untrue as there is no train station in Tauranga.2/. "A man entered the house to collect rubbish bins" again this is completely untrue as the rubbish bins are stored outside the house by the garage & in order to make it easier for our guests our lovely neighbours very kindly collect them and deposit them by the roadside for collection. Again another comment completely untrue.When I see comments like these that are completely false I truly wonder how many others are the same.
We were 9 adults and 2 children and stayed for 3 nights while attending my sons wedding. The house was stunning. Beautiful art work everywhere and everything lovely. There was plenty of space for everyone and the view across the harbour to Mt Maunganui was very peaceful. A great house to return to each day. Also the beds were very comfortable. Would definitely stay again.
Response from Owner
Thank you Ann for your wonderful comments. You were fabulous guests and left our house beautifully. We would love to have you back anytime at all! Wedding Parties always love staying there as there is plenty of room for people to be together and quiet areas too if you are needing some quiet time!

This was the perfect place for a special family wedding. Unfortunately the plan to have three generations didn't eventuate when Louise had a serious bike accident and we couldn't be there, but the other two generations (younger and older) had nothing but high praise for the stunning location and opulence of the property. Louise and I really look forward to another opportunity where we to can return and enjoy this fabulous house.
Response from Owner
Thank you for your fabulous comments and shame about Louise having a serious bike accident. I hope she recovers well and quickly. We would welcome you to stay another time. Jennifer
