Nice sunny room in a little cottage in the heart of Newtown. We're a 30 min walk from the city centre or a short 10 min bus ride. Newtown has a lot to offer, from a weekly veggie market to restaurants and bars.
Please be aware that we have a medium dog. He's 1 and still in training. He sometimes barks when guests knock at the door, but he is friendly and relaxes afterwards.
We live in a duplex, with the front of the house being occupied by our neighbours. The walls are pretty thin, so you can hear the noises from the front of the house
This accomodation is best for non-fussy travellers on a budget. For less than the price of staying in a hostel dorm, you get your own our room, some privacy and only have to share the bathroom with two other people.
The room is small, but it has a queen bed and a chest of drawers. There's also a heater in case it gets cold.
We have Wi-Fi and washer for you to use.
There's free on-street parking, perfect for travellers on a road trip.
You're welcome to enjoy our garden, dining room, living room and kitchen. You'll have a private room, but will share the rest of the house with us, including the one bathroom.
Help yourself to whatever is in the kitchen. For breakfast you can help yourself to muesli, cereal, toast, eggs, coffee, tea and sometimes some homemade treats. If you have any preferences/restrictions, just let us know and we'll sort it out before you arrive.
Interaction with guests
We're here to make you feel welcome. If you want to now the best places to visit, eat, drink or listen to music, just let us know. We're happy to help.
We work full-time Monday to Friday, but we'd love to have a beer in the evening or share a bbq with you, if it's sunny that is.
Other things to note
We adopted our puppy Mambo when he was 4 months old. We stopped doing Airbnb once we got him to be able to train him. The first 8 reviews are from before we had Mambo.
While he's getting better everyday, he still barks when people knock on the door. We are training him to correct that. But please don't book with us if that will make you uncomfortable.
Mambo goes to work with Lucas everyday so he won't be left at home alone while we have guests. Don't worry, you won't have to look after him :)

We are Amanda and Lucas, a Mexican chica and a Frenchman living in New Zealand. We love travelling, chocolate and cheese, of course!
Lucas is a Web Developer who spent three years in New Caledonia before making a six-month road trip throughout New Zealand.

We've decided to make New Zealand home for now, but still like to travel when we have the chance.
