599 Mountain Rd Oropi Tauranga
A place to unwind and relax in a lovely, spacious B&B in the country. We are in Oropi, just 20 minutes from Tauranga, and 45 min from Rotorua, a peaceful base to explore from with the beautiful Otanewainuku Forest on our doorstep.
Our brand new B&B studio apartment is separate from the house, has an en-suite bathroom with shower and kitchenette stocked with a selection of teas & coffee. French doors open out onto a small deck and a view of the surrounding countryside. Sit in the armchairs and take in the peacefulness while listening to the bird calls or wander through the veggie garden and hot house to see what’s growing.
Set amongst an orchard of apple and pear trees and with a large productive veggie garden, there is plenty of fresh organic produce to eat. Meet the calves which are our lawn mowers and George, our Burmese cat, who keeps the rabbit population under control. Free range chooks are coming soon!
For breakfast you have the choice of a Continental breakfast eaten in your room: seasonal fruit, orange juice, homemade toasted muesli, yoghurt, toast & jams, tea or coffee. Or join us for a Cooked breakfast of bacon and farm fresh eggs, tomatoes and steamed kale/spinach from the veggie garden, toast & jams, tea or coffee.
Experience the cool, lush green of the Otanewainuku Forest, see the giant Rimu trees or walk up to the Trig for a panoramic view of the Bay, or swim at the Whataroa waterfall.
Having traveled in New Zealand extensively as well as overseas we can share with you our tips and advice on getting off the beaten path.
Tauranga and the Mount have some great restaurants to choose from, again we have our favourites to recommend.
