We are hidden away in a quiet residential part of the city, with views of the river, Hamilton East & Mt Maungatautari. 5 minutes from the hospital, a short walk to the river, Hamilton Lake, Hamilton Gardens and the city centre with its restaurants, shops and cafes.
If you are here on a Wednesday night you are welcome to join our deeply relaxing weekly Open Heart Meditation, if you wish. Or as a special treat you can book in for an emerald revitalisation treatment any time during your stay.

The space
This is a family home, and we lead full lives, so the space is clean, comfortable and "lived in". Don't expect a show home! And we have a house dog - a foxy called Juno, who is very friendly. My husband and I have an ensuite bathroom, so the shared bathroom is yours for you alone, unless my adult children or other guests are here. You are welcome to use our rather dated kitchen, or make yourself at home in the spacious, lounge or dining room, taking advantage of the abundant greenery surrounding us - there might even be fresh veggies in the garden for you to eat :)
We host regular meditation and Natural Walking practices in our home, as well as relaxing and revitalising emerald treatments. You are welcome to join if you wish.
Alternatively, if you just want to relax in private in your room, that is very fine too. There is a kettle, tea, coffee and fruit in your room. On Wednesday nights, the kitchen isn't available between 7pm and 9 pm.

Other things to note
We don't have a microwave, but you are welcome to use our pots and pans, or our scruffy old oven to heat your food.

Peaceful, pretty, secluded ...yet very close to the lovely river walk, to Hamilton Lake and internationally famous Hamilton gardens. Abundant cafes a short walk/drive away, and a supermarket nearby. Close to hospital.

During your stay
We both work, and are often busy in the evenings. I am always available via cellphone and can often rearrange my working hours to be available if that is what you need. We enjoy company but don't crave it - so how much you socialise is up to you.
