Edwardian 2 storeyed villa set in beautiful private garden.

The space

Our home borders on Pukekura Park, is a 10 to 15 minute walk to the city centre, coastal walkway, Govett Brewster Art Gallery, Library and Museum complex.

Guest access

Guests can use the swimming pool during the season.

Interaction with guests

We have hosted many times, through the Wwoofing and Warmshower sites, so are knowledgeable about what the district has to offer, and are very willing to assist with any queries and suggestions of what to do in the area.

Other things to note

Our home is an old house (1905) and is best for guests wanting a more interesting atmosphere to stay in. We have pets, 2 cats and 1 dog, so our home is not really suited to people with allergies to animals. Bathrooms are shared and there are no ensuite bathrooms. Continental breakfast provided. Both bedrooms have a double bed in each room, and are suitable for couples. If you are two single people wanting a room each, you will have to book the two bedrooms.

It was an absolute pleasure to stay with Diana and Rhys. We were made to feel really at home, and enjoyed the openness of the house and quirky decor. Sitting around an open fire in winter in this house was the perfect long weekend for us and our friends. Even more than the house as hosts they were wonderful at greeting us and it was a pleasure to spend time talking with them. We hope to visit again some day.

Great location, and a warm and welcoming host. Very homely environment and an amazing house!

As you can see from the photos, this is a lovely old house. For us it was even better than they show. Full of character and period charm with lovely wood panelling and doors, a stunning central staircase and great views. Hosts Diana and Rhys are very warm and welcoming and we would have loved to have spent more time there chatting over the most excellent coffee. And if the house and the hosts were not enough, it sits literally right beside the glorious Pukekura Park. You could not want for a better location, whether you are exploring on your first visit or coming back to relive some wonderful memories, as we were. Highly recommended.
