Their home is beautiful and comfortable, it is also located at a pleasant surroundings. The views are wonderful, and we have enjoyed our daily walks and admire the lush vegetation. Jan and Garry´s home is well connected by road, which allowed us to easily reach any place. We would like to thank Jan and Garry, as well as their friends for being so nice with us. They made our stay in New Zealand memorable.”
Garry's reviewsAs a host (5)
“Our holiday in New Zealand started by being expected by Jan and Garry in Auckland airport. What a great start! They brought us to their stylish home and explained us everything with a lot of information at hand. We really had a beautiful time in this area and had the chance to meet Jan and Garry several time which made it even nicer. We met them also at lake Como and Switzerland and enjoyed their company a lot. They left our home as they found it. We hope that it\'s not the last time we had the chance to meet Jan and Garry; it was so nice to get to know you. Thank you a lot for sharing so many things about New Zealand with us!”
“We had a very good time in Omokoroa near Tauranga. Omokoroa is a very pretty peninsula. The house and the area are very nice and Jan and Garry too! We had a very good dinner with them, we met their friends, we visited a great farm with them....all was wonderful. They are very friendly and we are looking forward to seeing them in France.

“Questa è stata la nostra prima esperienza di home Exchange, Ci siamo trovati molto bene sotto tutti gli aspetti. la regione Tauranga è veramente interessante, bellissime spiagge, foreste, coltivazioni e diversi insediamenti da visitare. La casa di Jan e Garry si trova ad Omokoroa, una penisola vicino a Tauranga, un elegante e tranquillo quartiere residenziale. A pochi metri dall\'abitazione avete la possibilità di fare il bagno nella baia, passeggiare sul bordo del mare in mezzo ai fiori ed al verde, fare la spesa e visitare la biblioteca locale. Un auto è comunque indispensabile per muovervi. La casa è molto elegante, luminosa, pulita, confortevole e dotata di tutti gli accessori di cui potete avere bisogno dal wifi, stereo con ottima musica, elettrodomestici. Risponde comunque alla descrizione che potete trovare sulla scheda. Jan and Garry sono due persone veramente eccezionali, abbiamo avuto modo non solo di scambiare la casa, ma di condividere altre esperienze e conoscere loro amici e vicini. Ci hanno assistito per tutto il nostro soggiorno ed abbiamo instaurato un rapporto di amicizia che continua ancora adesso.”
“We've just returned from 2 weeks in Jan & Garry's delightful home near Tauranga, NZ. They could not possibly have done more to make our stay better. Their home is clean, warm, well-equipped, comfortable and beautifully decorated and their friends could not have been more helpful. Omokoroa is well situated for exploring the Coromandel Peninsula, Lake Taupo and Rotorua and the Bay of Plenty. There are many wonderful gardens, beaches and bush walks close by if you don't want to drive far. I still wake each morning and think about the short stroll to the edge of the harbour and the wonderful walk down to the jetty. Thanks Jan & Garry for all you did.”
Where is it?
Our village community is on a Peninsula only 15 minutes North of Tauranga city and 20 minutes north of Mount Maunganui (1 of NZ'2 premier holiday beach & coast destinations), 1 hour from Rotorua (NZ's wonder Geyserland) & 2 hours from Auckland International airport & city. Tauranga is the centre of the Bay of Plenty's fruit growing district, with Avocado & kiwifruit orchards plentiful. The golden sands of Coromandel beaches & townships, also a short drive north.
Lovely beach walks from our home with extensive harbour views and sheltered harbour suitable for boating, fishing, swimming or windsurfing. Beautiful sunsets over the harbour..
Locally there are several lovely cafes,and the Boat club, with decks and meals served overlooking the water.
A large Supermarket is fairly new to the area and we enjoy their competitive prices while not having to travel off the Peninsula for groceries. .
