I have a two bedroom home with one room spare. Our town is near to the gateway to the Coromandel, half hour from Matamata (home of The Hobbit experience), 1 1/2 hours to Auckland City and just over an hour to our beautiful ocean beaches at Tauranga. We have hot springs nearby and our own warm pools in town. Mt Te Aroha can be climbed by those who have the fitness to do so and Waiwere Falls is a gorgeous climb to make if you have the energy. Rotorua is around 1 1/2 to 2 hours drive to see mud pools, guysers and much NZ history. We only have two buses a day in Te Aroha but I may be persuaded to transport guests if they provide the petrol to do so. I am a working person but am home at least 12 hours of each day. I can provide a breakfast and there is a chip shop about 5 minutes walk from my house. There is a computer in the bedroom for respectful use by the homestayer. I have cats.
