Walk to CBD/river/stadium. My private, separate, modern guest studio unit is a peaceful city retreat - set well off the road a stone's throw from the city. You have your own entry with off-street parking right outside your door. The studio has a lounge/kitchenette area, full bathroom, and spacious bedroom. Breakfast goods included. Outside you can enjoy your own patio setting for that morning cuppa in the sun, or use my garden & bbq area around the back. Weekly service for longer stays.

The space
The kitchenette has a fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave only - there is no actual hotplate cooking and no sink (you use the sink in bathroom to fill the kettle etc). NB - Your stay includes initial goodies for breakfasts - cereals, fruit, yoghurt, juice, toast bread, spreads, and a variety of hot drinks.
The television is a brand new smart TV so you can Bluetooth your device to watch Netflix and similar.
I have two very friendly furry friends - my cats Leyla and BatCat - who like to check out any guests. However, you can shoo them away if you are not fond of cats.

Guest access
Access to my laundry will be provided upon request when I am home.

Other things to note
For longer stays, you are able to negotiate provision of evening meals.

The CBD is 2.2 km (30-35 min walk); Rugby Stadium 1.2km (10-15 min walk); and access to our lovely Waikato River walking/cycling track is but a short 500m away . There's a popular cafe 10 min walk, and the corner shops have various takeaways, chemist, convenience store, liquor outlet (and a tattoo studio if you’re brave!)

I am energetic, friendly and social. I only work part-time now so I have more time now to enjoy golfing, cycling, and travelling places. My late husband and I enjoyed regular travel and after he passed I thought hosting would be another way of meeting travellers (and other kiwis) from different walks of life. We love our little apartment in the city (that’s me and my two friendly cats Leyla and Batcat) - it’s central yet away from the hustle. I am really looking forward to meeting you and hosting you at Cath’s City Retreat (when it’s not blocked out for personal travel that is!) ......whether your stay is pleasure, travel, or business-related. Safe travels :-)
