Photos of The Cypresses
Sitting proudly on half an acre of landscaped grounds in the quiet and desirable suburb of Matua The Cypresses is one of the neighbourhood's original homesteads. Originally built as a doctor's residence this character home has been lovingly and tastefully maintained by members of the same family, who offer the original “surgery end” as comfortable, private guest accommodation.
The guest suite has its own internal security and private entrance and comprises a double bedroom, spacious bathroom with laundry cupboard and separate living room (which can be converted to a bedroom with two single beds to accommodate family groups if required). The suite has its own private west-facing patio, where guests can soak up the last of the evening sun, or seek shade under the persimmon tree. Top quality cotton sheets, down duvets and black out blinds will ensure a restful sleep.
Continental breakfast of specialty cereals, yoghurt, local fruits, toast and preserves is provisioned in your suite. Facilities include Freeview television, WiFi, fridge/freezer, table / chairs, tea, coffee and toast making facilities, use of bicycles, and off-street parking.
The Cypresses is only 5 minutes drive to Tauranga's CBD. The local Bay Hopper bus stops right outside our property, for a ride through the suburbs to the city and beyond. Mount Maunganui, with its excellent surf and swimming beaches and hot salt water pools is only another 10 minutes away. The wonderful walks up ( approx one hour return) and around ( half an hour) “the Mount” offer breathtaking views. Guests can wander down to Matua's harbour boardwalk, beaches and reserves, just 5 minutes from our home. Dine or shop in nearby Cherrywood or Matua shopping centres, or drive to golf, the nearest course only 5 minutes away. Tauranga Bridge club is a mere 3 minute drive away. Hobbiton in Matamata is reached in 50 minutes by car, as is Rotorua.
Your hosts, Mike and Belinda, extend a warm welcome and are very happy to chat and offer advice on local activities should guests wish.
