About Us - Why Us?

                                          About Us

Cherie and Terry are the creators of Ohourere lodge Bed and Breakfast in Tauranga.  We wanted to provide a private rural experience, their guests arriving and entering the lodge seamlessly, without having to interact with anyone, enjoy their stay and come and go as they please.


With a late departure time of 11 am at Ohourere Lodge Tauranga there is time to explore the banks of the stream and the surrounding farmland.

There are scottish highland cattle grazing near the deck with newborn calves in the spring. Enquire on the contact us page to see if they are born yet!  Always a thrill to watch while on the deck having your morning coffee. They will answer with a moo if you talk to them!


We have created what we have always looked for in accommodation but was always so hard to find.  A place with tranquility, privacy, birdlife, and natural surroundings and a hot tub to soak away the stresses of travelling and working. 


Ohourere Lodge is only 8 kms from Bethlehem shopping centre, 15 mins from the centre of Tauranga and “The Strand” and 25mins from the beautiful beaches of Mt Maunganui and Pilot Bay.


At Ohourere Lodge  enjoy your evenings on the deck under the stars in our luxurious Hot Tub / Spa Pool, with the calling of our native Morepork and the noisy active pukekos. On those winter evenings snuggle up and enjoy the warmth of the large open gas fire and big screen TV.


The self-catered breakfast includes a continental breakfast with a selection of Muesli, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast and spreads, farm fresh free range eggs and bacon... and great coffee!

We know your preference in coffee is personal so there is a selection of coffee; from our famous Tuatara plunger coffee, instant coffee, decaf and hot chocolate

All the comforts of home.
