Our place is close to parks, local shops- takeaways, sushi, restaurant, gas station, bus stop, 15min drive from the beach & main city.. You’ll love our place because of the outdoor space, it will feel like a retreat - it is quiet and spacious, beautiful views and the opportunity to kayak/ swim out in the water :) The house is very vintage and has a lot of character.. Our place is good for couples/ families and solo adventurers. This waterside retreat is a local taste of New Zealand :)
My husband and I live in this house and our 2 flat mates also. You are welcome to use our cooking facilities to make your own breakfast, lunch or dinner. We provide breakfast - continental (toast, cereal) tea and coffee. You are welcome to use our living rooms and outside areas/ canoe, kayak etc (please ask for paddles).
SLEEPING/ BEDS: We have a room inside with a double bed & bathroom attached to it (sleeps 2) Outside of the house we have a cabin that sleeps 3 - have a look at the photos to get a better idea - it is a big bunk bed. 1 person on the top bunk and 2 on the bottom (it is bigger than a king size bed on the bottom). If you are a group you will all share the bathroom attached to the inside room. :)
Please ask if you have any questions while you are staying - if you are unsure about something or would like to use something. We will give you one house key to use when you come and will explain details about the house - things you should know while staying. :)
