The SpaceWe are John (NZ) and Meg (Irish)and would describe ourselves as laid back semi retired countryfolk. Our home is circa 1950s so has a bit of character. It is the master bedroom which is on offer for Air BnB guests. It is private as it is at the far end of the house and it has its own entrance. Guests have commented that they like that we are just an hour from Auckland airport so they really feel their NZ holiday has started as soon as they get to our place. Hamilton is an excellent central point from which to visit Raglan, Hobbiton, Waitomo Glow worm caves, Tauranga and Taupo. Hamilton itself has stunning Municipal Gardens alongside the Waikato River, good pubs and eateries, an excellent museum and delightful riverside walks. We are able to give you good advice about where to go and what to do. While most of our guest are from overseas, we often host New Zealanders who just want a getaway for a weekend or longer. Just read our reviews to get an idea of what we can offer you! Guest AccessWe would be happy to show you around our 4 acre lifestyle bock. We grow organic passionfruit and have a small commercial bakery on site where your breakfast bread will be freshly baked. We have about 20 hens and you are welcome to collect fresh eggs for your own breakfast. Our 'herd' of 3 tame jersey cows would appreciate your attentions too. We do have a super friendly border collie and 2 smoochy cats so animal lovers will be fulfilled although not so much the asthma sufferers perhaps. Interaction with GuestsWe work from home and are usually here but if you do book on a Saturday night you may need to fix your own breakfast on Sunday morning (as we are off at the crack of dawn to do the Farmers' Market) but it will be laid out ready for you. You could meet up with us at the Market later on Sunday too! The NeighborhoodWe are slap bang in the rolling green countryside although a 10 minute drive brings us to 'The Base' which is the largest shopping mall in NZ so how about that for the best of both worlds? You can hear birdsong from dawn until dusk and the stars are incredible on a clear night as we have no street lights whatsoever. We usually suggest guests head to 'The Cock and Bull' for their dinner on the evening of arrival. It is a local 'English Pub' just 10 minutes drive away where you can get a nice bistro meal in a comfortable atmosphere and where the boutique beer is excellent. Getting AroundYou will need a car to get to our place as there is no public transport close by. Just type in our address to the Sat Nav or G maps. We are called Ar Neamh on G maps. (It means paradise in Gaelic) Other Things to NoteLet us know if you have any special requirements in advance and we will do our best to accommodate them.
