A perfect central location overlooking the Whanganui River, and a short walk to downtown Whanganui. Our sunlit, warm and spacious, fully equipped first floor apartment has a queen bed in the separate bedroom with a king single available in the living area. A glass enclosed entrance has a circular staircase and hanging lights lead to the apartment.
Look over the Whanganui River in the evening from your deck and the riverbank pathway opposite is perfect to get that morning coffee or to exercise.

Location

Whanganui, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

The tranquillity of the Whanganui River gives a real feeling of well-being. I frequently take my morning coffee sitting on a bench watching its moods, or the energetic young and not so young, who paddle it's waters for leisure or sport.
Just a few minutes walk away are the cafes and restaurants of downtown Whanganui , their specialties and idiosyncrasies well known to locals who are happy to share their knowledge with visitors.
There are a wealth of stories of our history and culture in our museum and art gallery, both have outstanding collections recognized nationally and internationally for their quality.
Many local galleries are owned by curators of art specializing in glass, ceramics, or other media including the work of nationally well known artists.
Or find a treasure in one of a myriad of interesting stores either in our downtown or suburban shopping areas.

My previous listing was as The Flying Fox, a collection of hand-built riverside cottages inland of Whanganui NZ, surrounded by native forest. This now has new owners, as I reluctantly accepted the need to leave as a consequence of the sudden death of my husband. Now at The Sea House, on the oceanfront at the privateTapuaetahi Beach near Kerikeri, my two apartments TIME and TIDE are available for those who love the sea and dream of escaping the crowd. And in Whanganui on the west coast of the North Island, I have The Lights, a retro design, bright and airy downtown apartment looking directly over the river.
