HOME HIGHLIGHTS
Indoor fireplaceThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

Lovely simple house, 1920s, warm, inviting, set in a garden surrounded by mature trees. Glowing wooden rimu floors, art, comfort are all yours, though it is a work in progress, no perfection.
I am a relaxed hostess and love to meet people.

House Rules

I do like to live quietly, though loud music at times is awesome.
I have a shoes off policy, no smoking inside, and you do need to feel happy and cared for, or tell me! (Rule number 1 in fact!)
Let me know your plans please -I may be out or busy.
Check out around 10 am unless arranged with me. Thank you.

Kate is a great host from beginning to end. She communicated well, had a cozy home with a great bed. She is friendly but not intense and very accommodating and helpful. Thank you Kate!

Great place to stay! Kate is very welcoming and friendly. Only stayed one night but we really enjoyed our time. It was the perfect stop over before continuing our journey through NZ.

Kate's house is a work in progress as she stated. Our room was clean and our bed comfortable. Kate was an easy conversationalist and we covered many subjects. Our Omlette in the morning was stunning. Thank you

Kate 她家离市区不远,她很热情得招待我们虽然我们到的很晚。第二天还起早给我们做早餐,早餐很特别是她的拿手菜,用鸡蛋做的很美味,虽然不知道叫什么,还泡了一壶很醇香的红茶,我们还品尝了她采摘的新鲜果子,很愉快的住宿!

I am a very relaxed person who loves to meet people. I am able to be helpful and chat, or quiet and give you your own space if you are tired or planning your next exciting adventure. I love films, books, art, good food, walking, yoga and pilates, gardening - especially growing …
