Hi all,
I have a furnished room in a big house with a great feel. Fantastic view from the lounge and your room. Only 15 minutes by car to the airport, and central city. Short walk to bus stop, parks and convenience store. Thirty minute walk or 5 minute drive to supermarket.

The space

The room is furnished with a bed, chest of drawers, lamp and beside tables. There is space to hang your clothes if needed. The house is four bedroom, two story with two toilets and one bathroom and has lovely views from the lounge and your bedroom. Close to dairy and bus stop. Very sunny (when there is sun!), open and inviting space. Single or couple ok.

Guest access

Access to your room, and main areas of house, ie kitchen, laundry, lounge, outside seating area. Please note I don't have a microwave but you're welcome to use the stove and oven.

Interaction with guests

I am often around during the day as I sometimes work from home. I live with my partner and my two boys aged 9 &11 who stay with their dad 3 or 4 nights per week. We also have my partner's 12 year old boy every second weekend. So depending on when you cone you may see two boys, three boys or no boys!
You are welcome to use the kitchen for cooking (we don't have a microwave) as long as dishes are put in the dishwasher afterwards!

Other things to note

We have a cat called Pandora. She's pretty playful and likes attention

Friendly and reasonably quiet...this is a family home so would suit someone who wants a quiet and relaxed place to stay, and doesn't mind the sound of a child or the odd toy lying around! There is no smoking inside, other than that we like you to make yourself at home!
We are quite early to bed so if you are arriving in the evening, before 8pm is preferred unless unavoidable.

The room is very nice and Chris and Catherine make you feel welcome. The house could not be cleaner, the bus stop is not very far. And the view is really great from the living room and the bedroom. Thank you.

We enjoyed very much staying in Catherine's house. It is clean and quiet and with a wonderful view. Catherine is very kind and helpful. We will return again when we are taking our flight from Wellington back to Germany.

Catherine's home's location was perfect for me, as I wanted to be close to the airport (Uber only cost me about 15-17 NZD). Her family is lovely, and Catherine was on top of communication. Once I got there I asked her last minute if she wouldn't mind that I stayed an extra night, and was gracious enough to accept my request to modify my original booking to accommodate my extra night. Thanks!!

Very nice room in a house with a great view. Its not in the center but close to the airport. You can easy go to the center by bus, the bus stop is close to the house. The family was very nice and helpful. I can highly recommend this place.

Wonderful home! I stayed in a very lovely private room with lots of light, a fantastic view, and comfortable bed. Catherine was a suburb host, even helped me with the buses! I felt right at home and would definitely come back. Thanks Catherine!
