You’ll love our funky little place it is so handy to everything. Wake up to the smell of salt air and nearby beaches and walks all so close. Just a short stroll to see the breath-taking views of Mt Maunganui, from nearby Kulim Park. The smell of local cafes, takeaways and restaurants all happening nearby. We are usually here if you need us for help with anything. Please treat our little house like your house, along with our wonderful cats who we adore. They are people friendly!

We are both down to earth people who love life and all it's challenges. We like new ideas or changes along the way. We enjoy company especially family and friends. We love the beach and we love gardening. I do the making of shell things or anything funky, Nigel does the lawn mowing and training for half marathons!. Sewing is a passion for me, sport is Nigel's thing. We enjoy meeting people and hopefully becoming friends along the way.
