Central-5 mins drive to the city centre. Large, very private, semi-studio style room UPSTAIRS above garage. Private bathroom DOWNSTAIRS. Excellent quality bed. Sparkling clean & cosy. Continental style breakfast in room. TV & movies via Wi-Fi on your private device (no TV in room sorry). Separate entrance door via internal garage. Friendly welcoming host. No cleaning fee! Check-out times:10.00am MON-FRI. 11.00am Weekends & Public Holidays.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 a extra charge of $20 per night for linen and bedding payable on arrival. I provide a clean and high quality queen size bed (guests have raved about how fab the bed is!), bedding, towels, etc. Your room has all you need - 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. Additionally: Toaster, kettle, plates, glasses, cutlery. 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 very comfy, thick, foam, fold out couch that 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 and bedding.
If you wish to book for more than a week, the bathroom will be a shared space between 9.00am-10.00am Mon-Fri.
My place is 5 minutes drive from the city centre and in a quiet cul-de-sac street. It is a lovely area.
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 Whanganui's new 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.
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, quiet at night, safe, friendly and welcoming, with off-street parking, close to town - then look no further! We love to host! :)

Guest access
I can usually accommodate arrivals before 3pm if you let me know in advance. Guests are more than welcome to use my kitchen if you need cooking facilities - please just ask so we can agree a suitable time (as I have 3 kids to do dinner for).
Please note: I do not provide laundry services as part of my amenities unless the booking is for a week or more (short-let stays). There are very good laundromats nearby. Please refer to my Guest Guidebook for options or ask me.
If you need to store motorcycles, bikes or other large valuable items inside and out of the weather, you are welcome to use the internal garage.
Guests are welcome to use the trampoline if you have kids.

Other things to note
If you have very young peeps, please be aware that there is no door at the top of the stairs to your bedroom (the loft), only at the bottom of the stairs (which is lockable), so it could be a safety hazard for toddlers.

Location

Whanganui, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

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 and boutique stores, the beautiful Whanganui River, the famous Waimarie Paddle Steamer, the Saturday morning Riverside Markets and the shared pathways for biking, scootering or walking around the beautiful city bridges. Heading west, we are only 5 minutes drive to Virginia Lake. A little bit further but well worth it 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). I am close enough to the city to be convenient, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful at night.
