A gorgeous villa overlooking the awa (river) full of old school charm and plenty of room to find your own space. Situated right on the Whanganui cycle trail with dedicated bike storage you can get out amongst the beautiful surrounds, explore the art around town, or just relax in the whare.

If you are looking for a lap warmer Kitty Purry the resident feline will be only too willing to snuggle up on you.

The space
You’ll have full use of the whare (house) except for my private bedroom. There is a dedicated office with good reliable wifi if you need to get some work done.

Guest access
As well as the house, you’ll have access to a spacious and fully fenced back yard. You can bring your pooch on holiday if they’re an outside dog!

Other things to note
There are two single beds in my office if more room is required.

Whanganui, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

The whare (house) is at the town end of Aramoho. A short 6 minute bike ride along the awa (river) and you’ll be right in the middle of town with access to supermarkets, restaurants and everything Whanganui has to offer, including the markets on every Saturday.

If you want to head up the awa you can ride as far as you like along the famous cycle trails. A 20 minute ride will get you to the pub and bakery in Upokongaro.

Caroline’s Boat Shed is a short walk if you want an easy dinner and drinks overlooking the river.
