You’ll love everything about our place from the quiet serene rural country location and views, to the comfortable queen bed with natural fibre linens and bedding. Because our home is half a km from the road, we have a very quiet tranquil location. We love to share our home and private outdoor living space with guests. Our place is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
Our place is located very centrally to everywhere - just a few minutes drive to Feilding, Palmerston North city, PN Airport, The Gorge Walk and Windfarm, Hiwinui Day Spa, 15 mins to Massey University/DRI/DSIR. Kelvin Grove Countdown and various excellent fast food shops are within 5 minutes drive.
The Guest room, The Guest's bathroom, family living areas, kitchen, extensive lawns and gardens.
We have lived in the Manawatu area most of our lives, and are very familiar with most popular sightseeing and tourist must-do's. We can also help you find interesting and fun things to do/places to visit if needed. Additionally, we are happy to pick up or deliver you to the Airport, Bus or Train station, for a fee of $15 each way.
The peace and quiet is addicting! There is no traffic noise at night, but some during the day due to close proximity to Railway Road to the south of our property. Several trains a day pass by, and planes sometimes fly over our property depending on wind direction. If you are used to city noise, you will find it very quiet here.
While we provide you with choices of various cereals, fruit, toast and hot drinks for breakfast, at no extra cost, we regret we cannot cater for people with food allergies, and request you bring your own special cereals or dairy free items etc. With advance notice, we are happy for you to use our kitchen.
- Check in time by mutual arrangement. I would ask that all guests keep me well informed, particularly about their time of arrival (to ensure I am here to meet you). Check out times: generally 9am Weekdays, 10am weekends but we are very flexible, just ask when booking. We have 2 cats and a dog, so we are sorry but no pets. As with all shared spaces, there is a no smoking rule for the house - any guest who wishes to smoke is most welcome to use the garden and an ashtray. We run a bull beef operation: there will be some noise sometimes, and we request that you do not go into farm paddocks, for your safety.
We are a couple with adult children. We like meeting people from all over the world and making people feel welcome in our home. We are happy to help with tips on how to find your way around our wonderful city and the area. We love to travel too, would like to travel more.
