Property Description

Are you looking for a good nights sleep? Our quiet rural location just off the main road on a sealed, no-exit road, ensures just that - very little traffic and no light pollution! Your hosts Hilton and Bev are well-travelled and are knowledgeable and sensitive to your needs. Past winners of 'Spirit of Hospitality' award, and 'Whakatane Pride' garden awards.

Mimiha Valley is a wonderful setting for our large garden, both decorative and productive, source of a variety of delicious home-grown produce & preserves, and home for our friendly fox-terrier, and a pig.

Our Bed & Breakfast suite is separated from the house by a carport where you can park your car. It is let to only one group at a time. The beds are superior quality with natural-fibre bedding. There is TV with DVD in each room, (great for families) and wireless internet coverage.
We invite you to come into the house or the garden/outdoor area where we will host a gourmet continental breakfast featuring our garden-fresh, home-made foods, including freshly made juice from our citrus trees or apples, and our own avocados.

Our gorgeous garden is open to visit but free for your pleasure.
We grow and make delightfully different garden goodies and preserves (some for sale).
We care for and look after our environment, and garden as organically as possible. Our fresh food is spray-free and the source of meals and preserves.

Our wonderful outdoor spa pool is available for your use at no extra cost.
There is a petanque court and relaxation areas outdoors, plus walking tracks on farmland, road and beach.

We are centrally situated for day trips to tourist spots like Mt Maunganui, Tauranga and Rotorua and beautiful Ohope beach. Let us book your excursion to White Island - it's a wonderful adventure!

Fabulous rural accommodation with style - and a smile!

"This place was like coming home for 4 young friends from Belgium travelling around NZ. Very friendly owners, nice garden, best breakfast ever. This was definitely the best place we stayed in on our three week trip around NZ."

"Cottage is good value and high standard."

Peter Dykes, 02/12/2009

"If you could bottle the feel good factor you get at Fothergills they would make a fortune. The attention to detail, the friendship the sharing of their home was truly wonderful."

Geoff & Jenny Chapman, 16/04/2009

"Great stay!"

Mr & Mrs Dickinson, 08/03/2009

"I spent one spectacular month at Mimiha cottage in the comfort of a well-furnished house, far away enough from the main house to have complete privacy, but close enough to the main house to have chats and help out in the garden of two of the most generous and wonderful people I have met. The Fothergills are the essence of what it is to be good hosts and I've been lucky enough to sample the many delicious preserves Bev makes. Hilton, in his infinite kindness, also showed me around the area, both of them teaching me a bit about the area and the flora and fauna of the Bay of Plenty. I couldn't have asked for anything more. All the amenities one could ask for and the peace and quiet (or liveliness) of the countryside, with the wilderness of the Pacific Ocean only 5 minutes away. The best of both worlds! Thank you!"
