“Warm welcome in this lovely place on our way North”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2009

It has been such a stunning stay to Heather and John's house. They were putting the perfect attentions to make our stay comfortable that we feel at home. The room was charming and decorated with taste (we even had a little fudge on our pillow before sleeping ;)). The bathroom was very clean and well equipped.

In the evening, John kindly proposed to drive us to a close restaurant for dinner. We will definitly come back in this place. Thanks again!

Lovely stay at this beautiful house in a suburb of Tauranga. Heather is a natural hostess and John is also great company. At the price we also felt that the stay was excellent value and actually rated it higher than other more expensive places due to the personal touch. In fact Sarah and I still recall the conversation on our first night with great affection. We would both recommend this place highly for the quality of stay however note that it might seem slightly removed from a busy hub -although that might be said for most of New Zealand.

To think that we almost didn't stay here as we added in Tauranga at the last minute into our itinerary. We use tripadvisor all the time and were nervous to stay here as it had not been reviewed.
Thank goodness we took the chance as we enjoyed our stay with Heather and John more than anywhere else during our 3 week trip to NZ. The house itself is beautiful, slightly on the outskirts of Tauranga but you can drive to the city centre in under 10 minutes.
Heather is a wonderful hostess and an absoute natural with guests. Her husband John is also fantastic company and together they are a winning combination.
The reason for our trip was to consider emigrating to NZ and we were visiting various locations to see where we wanted to live. Heather and John were really helpful and we had such a good time staying with them that we'd have been happy if they'd have adopted us!
We stayed in a selection of properties during our stay ranging in price from $200 to $450 per night. Number eight was the lowest in price but we told Heather that she needs to put her prices up as what they offer is right up there with the higher priced homestays.
I have to stop as I could easily praise them all day. They are a wonderful couple and made our holiday. We hope to keep in touch with them and would recommend Number Eight to anyone.
