Close to public local shops, public transport and beach. View Mt Taranaki from home. Simonelli Expresso machine for your morning fix. We have 2 beehives. Fire place, heat pump & insulated. I am now offering guests the opportunity to learn to make soap or lotion for an extra cost. We keep our home warm and clean.

The space
We have slowly been renovating the last four years. The house has new carpet and we just installed a new kitchen. The bathroom has a new toilet, bath and basin. Your bed is super comfy with a memory foam mattress. You’ll have high quality thread count cotton sheets only and a feather duvet. I do have wool if requested. TV for watching movies if you request. I'm super clean. Handmade soap gifted. Towels & face cloths. Heater in the room.
We have fast optic fibre Internet. Great if you are a gamer.
Everyone states the bed is super comfy and the room is so so quiet. In summer we have an above ground swimming pool you can use.

Where you’ll be

New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand

We are in a nice cul-de-sac street with a view of Mount Taranaki. There is a block of shops within a quick walk which includes an Indian and fish & chip shop plus more.
We have a seaside market on the first Sunday of every month which is within walking distance.

I am an ex Aucklander and moved to Taranaki six years ago. I work part-time as a Social Worker. In my spare time I like to make candles, soap, lotion and work on renovating the house. My husband Colin is an engineer and works for the Taranaki District Health Board. We are easy to get along with and young at heart. I like my space clean and tidy. We have two motorbikes - I have a Triumph Bobber and my husband rides a Triumph Thunderbird. We also like our “real” coffee and will be happy to make you a flat white. There are some wonderful farmers markets where I live and everything you need is close by. We are very close to the best surfing beaches here in NZ. We own a beehives and the bees mind there own business. In the evening after a full day's work we usually like to read, watch a TV series or a movie. We have all the latest movies that you can watch with us or watch on your own TV. Sometimes I just like to go to bed early with my book. We have unlimited fast optic internet (URL HIDDEN) if your a gamer....you will love it There is a good set of shops 1 min walk from us from fish n chips, Indian and a funky barber shop. We have Milly (small dog with wool coat) the kavoodle who loves everyone and will annoy you to throw her ball and Kink (part Russian Blue) & Cooper (Maine Coon). Kink is quite timid and tends to live outside. I like to give my guests a bar of handmade soap. We have secure off-street parking for your car. My motto - "People are important and integrity can not be brought".

During your stay

I give all my guests handmade soap and I do at times have hand made bars of soap and liquid soap for sale. Happy to make you a flat white and please ask to try our home made honey.
In the evening I make hot chocolate with marshmallows. A nice way to end the day.
