Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

Restful peaceful and quiet my house is set in the forest yet close to town.
I have another room listed separately "Comfy single room with kauri tree view." Wake to the sound of native birds calling and see pigeons - kereru - tui and fantails as they dip and glide over the house. Kiwi call at night and sometimes come to your window.
Please note that the house is about a 40 minute walk from the bus stop. I might be able to pick you up. Contact me.

Come take your load off and refresh.

A great place to relax and unwind after a long day. Even when Julie wasn't there to meet us, she had everything ready and we still felt at home. Being close to local businesses was great when we needed to stop by the grocer or find a meal.

Julie was incredibly welcoming. She has a beautiful home right on the edge of a large forest reserve with a nice walking track just down the street.

You cannot go wrong at Julie's. She is a wonderful host and has a wonderful place. Enjoyed every minute. She is a niggifiddle, which means everything is perfect. May come back next year. Makes homemade bread each morning.

Julie’s place was great! Very unique and special experience. It was a great location to be near the city center and attractions, but in a beautiful green oasis at the same time. She was a very kind and thoughtful host! Would recommend and stay here again.

Just a great stay. Julie's place is neat and clean, the view into the bush out the bedroom window is soothing and beautiful. Her homemade jam is to die for and it goes on top of fresh homemade bread! Don't pass up the opportunity to meet this gracious host.

I love being an Air BnB host. The guests are always so interesting and diverse and I feel as if I am travelling the world from my lounge. I retired last year from teaching but this year am working two days a week teaching. I know! It's a bit silly. My three daughters have…
