This is an unhosted home that has been subdivided into about 4 Airbnb "apartments". Mine was clean, but very tiny. I could turn around in it but that was all. The shower drained poorly so as the water rose around my feet, I would have to turn the water off to let it drain before resuming my shower. The lock on my door was flimsy and none of the three keys I was provided fit the deadbolt. the neighborhood is quiet and residential, but I don't think you can walk anywhere of interest. I booked two nights and it worked out okay for me to take a long day trip and return just to sleep. All in all, I would say if you are looking for a clean room in a quiet neighborhood John's place could be fine, but not if you are looking for a little charm and/or a NZ cultural experience...
