Our home is set on the city boundary just 8 minutes from the City Centre, 5 minutes from Palmerston North Hospital, 15 minutes to Massey University and very well positioned for walking, tramping and biking tracks around the Manawatu . Our modern home is on 2.5 acres and surrounded by open countryside with great views to the windmills and just outside the apartment, we have a lovely Highland cow named Toffee who shares the paddock with some Wiltshire sheep, an interesting self shearing breed.

The space
Living just on the edge of the city, we are blessed with peace and tranquillity.

Our home is suitable for those who want the convenience of town but want to enjoy a taste of the rural lifestyle, as well as business people who want a quiet retreat after a busy day.

The apartment is accessed via a patio door and parking is available right outside where there is a patio with table and chairs to the front of the apartment looking out over the windmills. Guests are also welcome enjoy the large rear patio which has a twin rocking chair as well as the rest of the gardens for a leisurely picnic (picnic blankets available), or to enjoy the simple pleasure of our adult swings, a great spot to watch the magnificent sunsets.

We have a very large secure parking area which will easily accommodate cars with trailers, caravans or campervans. The property is accessed via electric gates.

Loan bikes are available for a nominal fee. Pick up and drop off to city and airport (just 5 minutes away) can also be arranged.
Our open view at the front also allows for the watching the awesome sunrise looking towards the windmills whilst enjoying breakfast.

Guests are also welcome to help themselves to produce from our vege garden in summer.

During your stay

My husband and I warmly welcome guests from all over the world. We love hearing about life in other countries and we are happy to share our knowledge of New Zealand and the local area. We are active cyclists and enjoy tramping, especially around our local area. See our guide book for more information on cycle and walkways.

We generally leave guests to enjoy their stay uninterrupted unless guests have questions or need assistance.
