More about us

  1. Mike and I (Judith) are in our 50's. Mike works as an executive in the Kiwifruit industry and I am a registered Social Worker working at the local hospital. We both work locally and love travelling. We love food and enjoy finding the local restaurants and cafe's to eat at when overseas. We have travelled extensively and enjoy being immersed in other cultures.

    We enjoy the outdoors including fishing, swimming, walks and cycling that the region we live in has to offer.

    We have watched our friends travel overseas using this website and have enjoyed meeting the people that stay in their house so we thought we would give it a go ourselves.

Where is it?


We live at Mount Maunganui (The Mount) on the east coast of the North Island, it is a suburb of Tauranga. The Mount is known as one of the best beaches in New Zealand. People surf and fish year round. We swim in the sea from October to early May. Our house is situated one block back from the beach. We are about 500 metres from the local surf club called Omanu. It has a surf patrol at weekends during summer and over the Christmas break daily.

The Mount has a very temperate climate in the summer between 24 - 30c and during winter averaging 14 – 18c at midday.

We are a 4km walk along the beach to the Mount shopping centre, bars and restaurants. The Mount is actually a 400metre high hill at the entrance to the Harbour. The views from the top of the Mount are stunning. It is well worth the walk to the top. There is also a track around the base which is very popular with the locals and visitors. There are two local golf courses, one walking distance.

The city of Tauranga is 5km from our house and the airport is 3km.

The region is called the Bay of Plenty because it has so much to offer with day drives to many parts of the region easily achieved. Rotorua is an hour’s drive and well known for its thermal attractions, geysers and historical Maori villages. Hamilton is just over an hour away and Taupo with its stunning lake two hours drive.

The North Island ski fields are about three and half hours drive.
