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.
