Welcome to my home in fantastic New Plymouth! It's a 5 min drive to down town, 2 min drive to the Port & Coastal walkway and a 2 min walk to the Moturoa shops. It's a 15-20 min drive to the airport. I'm a single, self-employed, friendly guy who enjoys meeting new people, but also respects privacy. My home is safe, secure and a pleasant place to be.

The space
My place is a warm, dry and clean 3 bedroom house with a sunny guest room I'd like to offer to visitors. There is a dedicated, off-road parking space for guests, and the private room is well appointed with a 45 inch TV with Chromecast for your use. You'd share a nice bathroom, kitchen and lounge/dining area, with the kitchen being fully equipped (dishwasher, microwave, oven & cook top, fridge & freezer, cutlery & crockery and pots & pans) if you wish to prepare your own meals. There's a sunny outside deck area and a swimming pool for the summer for your use. My lower section is an extensive garden & orchard where I keep my chooks and beehives. I have a cat who is either friendly or snooty - depending on her mood! Unlimited WIFI is there for your use.
