Two days is never enough in Whanganui!

Come and share my home with me... you’ll love it because of it's modern, 'New York apartment' feel and it's in pristine condition. Warm, sunny & close to everything. Happy to share a wine or just as happy to let you relax by yourselves. Beautiful Kowhai Park is just across the road if you fancy a walk along the river. Off-street parking. Check-in/out times flexible. Free continental breakfast.

We booked 4 nights here but did not realise it was not sole occupancy, as all our other accommodation we booked for our 3 month tour of NZ was. We explained this to Steve and he was very understanding. We stayed 2 nights and in that time he was very welcoming, chatty and helpful. His house is very nice indeed...

Management response:

Thanks for staying. I enjoyed your company and humour.

Highly recommend, the place is lovely and modern. Great place to relax and enjoy the sun in back in a secluded spot next to the creek, listening to the birds chirping. Kowhai Park is just across the road, awesome playground for the children to have a blast!

Management response:

Thanks Mat. Enjoyed meeting you and having you stay.

If you are bringing wine I am only too happy to help you drink it :) but also happy to leave you to yourself. You can find many of our tourist attractions at Visit Whanganui online.
