Selena Pottery & Farmstay

Farmstay in Tauranga, NZ

"Selena" is a 1970's stone house which is on a single level and the bathroom includes a level-entry shower which is great for the less able.   We can also provide extra accommodation for family groups who can share the toilet and bathroom facilities.

Our property includes a pottery / studio; large gardens with easy access; and cattle and free range chickens (and fresh eggs).   There are lots of native birds in the garden and you can watch the tui feeding from the nectar bowls.  We also have a laid back labrador dog (also called Tui) who just loves people.

 Selena is located 12km from Tauranga where there is an excellent range of restaurants.  Nearby at Mount Maunganui there are beautiful beaches, walks up or around the Mount, hot pools and great cafes.   Inland nearby there are great bush walks at Otanewainuku.  You can drive to Rotorua in about 1 hour and visit the volcanic landscape or experience Maori culture. 

 We like to meet interesting people and share our lovely home with others.


The room includes a king size bed, TV, coffee & tea facilities and a separate bathroom and toilet, and has its own private patio.




We can accommodate family groups and well behaved pets by prior arrangement.
