Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Central-5 mins drive to city centre. Large, private, semi-studio style room UPSTAIRS above garage. Private bathroom DOWNSTAIRS. Quality queen bed. Continental breakfast in room. TV & movies via Wi-Fi on your private device (no TV in room). Separate entrance door via internal garage. Suits independent, easy going & reasonably fit people who can handle stairs. Later checkouts weekends & Public Holidays-11am. No cleaning fee! Friendly host. It's not boutique, but it IS good honest value for money!

The space
The Queen bed is for 2 guests. If 2 guests would like 2 separate beds made up, there is an extra charge of $20 per night for the extra bedding and washing, payable on arrival.

I provide a clean and high quality queen size bed (guests have raved about how fab the bed is!). Your room has a toaster, kettle, plates, glasses, cutlery, work desk and chair, full-size fridge, hot drinks selection and continental breakfast supplied in your room.

Breakfast includes: Vogels bread, spreads, cereal selection, yogurt, canned fruit, milk, juice, and filtered water. If you have a preference for trim, light blue of dark blue milk please let me know.

Parking is up the longish driveway, right outside your entrance door. Your private entrance door is through the internal garage side door.

The loft is more than large enough to comfortably accommodate extra people, so if guests are ok with a fold-out couch with a foam topper, which is the size of a double mattress, I can accommodate up to an extra 2 guests for a cost of $40 per extra person per night, which covers hot showers, breakfast, towels, bedding and cleaning.

If you are looking for somewhere uber flashy, my Air BnB may not be for you, but if you are looking for an Air BnB that is good, honest, value for money, very clean, warm, quiet at night, safe, friendly and welcoming, with off-street parking, close to town - then look no further! We love to host! :)

Where you’ll be

Whanganui, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

My place is 5 minutes drive from the city centre and in a quiet cul-de-sac street. It is a lovely area. I am close enough to the city to be convenient, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful at night.

We are 5 minutes walk to Springvale Park and all its sports amenities including the Splash Centre (indoor heated swimming pools with hydro slides, spa, sauna & steam room), and kids bike park.

It is 5 minutes drive up the hill (or walk - 15 mins) to the beautiful Virginia Lake with walking tracks and a great cafe.

2 minutes drive to all main supermarkets.

As one of the local Whanganui sayings goes - "It is only 5 minutes to anywhere". My place is only a matter of minutes drive to the town centre and Victoria Avenue's great cafes, restaurants, boutique stores, the beautiful Whanganui River, the famous Waimarie Paddle Steamer, Saturday morning Riverside Markets and the shared pathways around the river and city bridges for biking, scootering or walking.

Heading west is Windermere Cafe and Berry Farm - 8 minutes drive (pick your own strawberries!), the impressive Bason Botanic Gardens (11 minutes drive) and the gorgeous Kai Iwi Beach (13 minutes drive). For nature lovers, Bushy Park Sanctuary is 22 mins drive from my place.
