John and Sarah are the property owners and live upstairs although our intention is that Downstairs @ Ours is more of a self-contained unit than it is a homestay although obviously we are here to answer any questions our guests may have re local attractions, recommended eateries etc.

When we have guests we'll still be coming and going as per our normal routines so you will see and hear us while you're here - much like you would 'other' guests were you staying at an actual motel.

Every New Zealander and overseas visitor to our fantastic country should experience the Mount over summer - it boasts one of the best beaches in the world and has a climate that ensures that everyone can enjoy that beach for many months of the year. We have some wonderful eateries, all of which are walkable from our place and the retail stores downtown are predominantly small independently owned businesses which is such a refreshing change from the massive chain stores that now seem to dominate retail globally.

Last but not least we have the Mount itself - it's an exerciser's dream in our back yard - it's free and you can walk up it or round it, you can fish from it's beaches and keen para-gliders even jump off it.

Having lived at the Mount for 10 years we still consider ourselves very lucky to live in this piece of paradise and look forward to sharing it with others.

Special conditions: Although set up predominantly for couples only, should couples with a young child/baby require accommodation we are happy to accept these bookings however guests would need to bring their own port-a-cot or similar. Smoking allowed outside only
