Why Stay with Beyonder

We all had a fantastic stay, the location was just a few minutes walk to the gorgeous beach a short car journey to restaurants. Would definitely recommend and would love to visit again.
Haley’s place was absolutely wonderful. It’s beautifully decorated and cared for and you can tell from the moment you walk in the detail and interior design was carefully chosen. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was wonderful for cooking meals (which we did mostly due to allergies). Location is walkable to a lovely part of the beach, and about a 12-minute drive to the mount, other beaches, and great restaurants/shopping. Parking was welcome as we rented a car and the spot was perfect to navigate. Communication with the hosts was great, they were all truly friendly and kind. Thank you again Haley! We hope to stay here again one day!!
Loved this place. So much bigger In person, was clean, well looked after, with BEAUTIFUL furnishings. We will stay again!
Haley was so easy to deal with and responded to all our queries. She was extremely accomodating and flexible around check in and check out also. The place was better than we could have imagined & the photos don’t do the house justice. It’s beautiful inside and out with the most beautiful styling throughout. Extremely spacious home and we will definitely be booking here again. Thank you so much - we absolutely loved our stay!!
We had a great time at Haley’s place! Beautiful home and surroundings. Close to the beach.
Beautiful home, lovely decor. Excellent with 3 bathrooms with 6 of us. Would recommend
Had the most amazing time staying at the Lighthouse. The pictures almost don’t do it justice, it’s such a beautiful place. Very fitting considering all the natural beauty in the surrounding area. Haley and the team made the whole process smooth and easy and had the place shining and spotless for our arrival. Fell in love with everything about Mount Maunganui and wouldn’t hesitate to rebook on our next visit!
