About this Holiday House

You certainly won’t be short of space in this stunning 6-bedroom family home with an additional self-contained apartment downstairs. Hidden away within native trees, this private property has 2 renovated loft bedrooms (both with double beds), 3 additional large bedrooms and a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom with shower and access onto the large wraparound sun drenched deck. Views of the Mount and the water are amazing, especially at sunset and the deck also has 2 cape cod chairs and an outdoor table. There is a fully equipped kitchen, 2 living spaces (one with a log burner) and a large separate dining area which can seat 10 people. There is also a modern main bathroom with large shower, bath and toilet and another separate toilet. The self-contained flat is one large studio room with a full kitchen, queen bed and lounge area (with TV) and it has a separate bathroom and a separate laundry room. There is also a trampoline and a basketball hoop and lots of fruit trees. This is our beautiful residential home that we like to rent out during school holidays or for special occasions so it is furnished with all our belongings (wardrobes will be unavailable). We totally want you to have a great time and you are welcome to have fun and drink and enjoy your stay. However please note that this is not a party house. This is not a rental property, it is our family home which is in a residential area so there is to be no outside noise after 9pm. Please take this into consideration before you make a booking. Our cat, Flynn, will stay at the property and we leave him enough food so you do not need to worry about him. He is very friendly and everyone that has rented from us in the past has said that Flynn made their stay special – he loves cuddles. We are centrally located in Welcome Bay and are walking distance from the shops and parks and a short drive away from Tauranga, Mount Maunganui and Papamoa. As this is our family home we request no party groups of under 25 years old. Families groups preferred or school groups/sports teams for Aims games or other tournaments. The house is ideal for family reunions as it can accommodate many families all under one roof. Or the Self-contained flat is great for a weekend getaway. The property has enough beds to accommodate 17 but there is ample space to sleep extras on the floor in most rooms.

We were a group of 17 people that stay at this place, over New Years. The highlight of the home was the big outdoor deck - literally the perfect spot to have our meals. There was enough room for all of us to roam around and the kitchen was well equipped. Joanne is super cool - our communication was a breeze. Flynn the cat was another highlight, really friendly and cuddly (so don’t be scared!!) Definitely be saving this place for future travels :)

Thanks Ella, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to accommodating your next visit in the Sunny Bay of Plenty.
Our group of 15 had a wonderful time staying at Joanne’s house, the property had everything we could need and more. Located within a close distance to all attractions and sites Tauranga has to offer. Joanne was a very accomodating host who was great to communicate with and made our stay very easy and enjoyable. Thank you for having us!

We are so pleased you enjoyed our family home Erin and that you had a wonderful time here. Thanks for the lovely review, we really appreciate it.
We are a young basketball team that attended the Hoop Nation Tournament over the Labour weekend in 2020. We had 10 players, a few house parents and coaching staff. This house is definitely 'spacious'. Very 'fitting' for sports teams, plenty of break-out spaces and has plenty of room for families to visit their child during tournament. The space is ideal for sports teams, players can stay in the main areas of levels 1 & 2, while coaching/management staff can use the self-contained unit for planning, 'time-out' or secure personal or team belongings. Initially, we had booked with another holiday home near Mt Maunganui. But when that fell through... the Ashby's (Owners) were very helpful, empathetic and accommodating to our needs. This house ended up being a blessing. The house is perfect for Hoop Nation Tournament: 8-10minutes to Trust Power Arena or 6-8min to Queen Elizabeth Youth Centre. We are using their space again for the Junior Volleyball Champtionships in November, I highly reccommend this space for your school/youth sports teams. Thank you Ashby whanau!!!
