The SpaceYour private space is the full top floor of the house; the master suite (43 metres^2 incl. balcony). This includes bedroom, bathroom, separate toilet, walk-in wardrobe/storage area with fridge and tea and coffee making facilities and your own balcony with lovely views of the garden, the property's stream and trees. The house is surrounded by decks, iconic NZ tree ferns, birds, and other native flora. The bed is very comfortable (great feedback on this), the linen is very nice quality and I provide nice quality pillows in firm and soft, as such preferences are important :-) Guest AccessThere is a compact fridge and hot drink making facilities in the guest space for your convenience. We have a high speed fibre internet connection (100 Mbps) and a wifi network for great access to the web. Interaction with GuestsInteraction is as much or as little as the guest prefers. Your stay is about you and your preferences. The NeighborhoodThe neighbourhood feels like you're in the countryside but great city amenities are so conveniently close by. It is walking distance (at most 15 mins) to the city and great cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries, movie theatres, a glass studio, the main shopping street, a supermarket and the tourist information office. It is very green and leafy, with lots of native NZ flora and birds. The Whanganui River is located just down the hill, 10 minutes away. There's a 15 minute walk up Durie Hill to the Memorial Tower where after a wee climb you get the most fantastic 360 degree views of Wanganui - Mt Taranaki, Mt Ruapehu, the river, the sea, the city, the suburbs, and if timed right, the sunset into the sea to the west. The unique elevator (one of only two in the world) that travels through Durie Hill to its peak is also nearby. There are many pleasant loop walks "Around the Bridges", of varying length that give lovely views of the city, its suburbs and the river. According to a number of guests, Wanganui is NZ's "best kept secret". It is also a great gateway to New Plymouth, National Park and the central plateau, or Wellington if you are travelling south. We are located close to SH3 and SH4. Getting AroundLocation is very close to both SH3 and SH4 and is a very pleasant 1km walk from the central city. I am very happy to pick you up and/or drop off at the Intercity or Naked Bus bus depots. I can organise free bicycles if you would like to use them while here. Other Things to NoteThere is off street parking for you, in front of the left hand garage. Apologies, we cannot accommodate small children as a third guest, two people in total is capacity for us. Although we have a couple of pets, animals have never been in the upstairs Airbnb rooms, just in case anyone is sensitive to animals.

          The SpaceThe house has retained much of the architectural style from when it was built in 1910. The interior has been refreshed, but the high ceilings and wooden floors make it feel like a traditional villa. It is spacious and cool in summer. In winter it can get a little cold, but there is a cosy log fire in the living room and heaters in each of the bedrooms. The house has some interesting features that give it a special character and create a feeling of being in a home, rather than a hotel. Guest AccessYou will have full access to the entire house, and a small private back garden which is lovely for outdoor dining in summer. Interaction with GuestsIt is likely that you will be greeted on arrival and you will be able to get any assistance you need to make your stay more comfortable. The NeighborhoodThe neighbourhood is an interesting mix of family homes and small businesses. There is a shopping centre about 2 minutes away with a pharmacy, take away outlets, post shop and two small grocery stores. Close by is a popular riverside cafe and bar. Getting AroundThere is a bus stop about 2 minutes walk from the house for heading into the city. Or you can follow the river walkway, which will also take you into the heart of town. Taxis are fairly cheap here - the average cost would be approximately $10 for a trip across town. Whanganui is perfect for cycling and you can hire bicycles for around $20 / $30 per day.

Other Things to NoteIf you are staying for several days or more during the height of summer, and you may be asked to water the tomatoes. You are welcome to eat some in return for your hard work!
