Beautiful Seaside Home in Fitzroy

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Hamblyn St, New Plymouth, Taranaki 4312, New Zealand

The Space

We have a lovely beach front home on the very popular Fitzroy beach in New Plymouth.
Our home is ideal for families or groups of friends who are after private but spacious accommodation.

On the ground floor, there are 3 guest bedrooms - one of which has access to a bathroom that has been customised for accessibility, and another that opens onto a patio.
On the bottom floor, there is a very large bedroom with a queen sized bed and 3 single beds - perfect for young families or groups.

On the top floor, there is a large modern kitchen, open plan living space with a telescope, and a deck where you can relax and watch the ocean. We also have a juicer which has been very popular with those who like to make their own fruit or vege juices.

Our home also has a small gym with a rowing machine, exercycle, weight machine, ab machine and free weights. We also have surfboards, and surf kayaks available to use for those staying with us, as well as bicycles to explore the waterfront and nearby city. There is also a computer room with a printer available, or else there is wireless internet for those who bring laptops with them.

Smoking outside only please!!

Fitzroy beach is a well known family / surf beach and during the summer months it is patrolled by lifeguards. The surf is great - in fact, surfing competitions are frequently held on this beach, and it is popular with both long and short boarders. There are plenty more surfing spots nearby as well. There are some great cafes only a minute or two walk away, as well as a fish n chip shop, and the Fitzroy village shops.

The central city is a short walk (approx 15 minutes along the coastal walkway) or else 3 minutes by car. The mountain is a 30 minute drive away, and Pukekura Park is also nearby- approx 20 minute walk or a 5 minute drive.

NZD$80 per night for a guest room (up to 2 people).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Wonderful stay in a stunning location with loads of space and a very comfortable bed. It was made extra special by the pleasure of Helen's company whilst there. We could have talked for hours! Would definitely stay again and have no hesitation in recommending a visit.

  • New Plymouth is nice but this location is great, wonderful outlooks over the surf and just one house off the coastal walkway. Feels like a hotel with big comfy beds, nice linen, and a wonderful carpet that makes you relish walking about barefoot. We didn't get to see Patty but did spend some time with her wonderful sister (who must get in touch when next in Auckland!). Wish we had longer to enjoy the surf and toys at the house (kayaks and boards were around, but we never had the chance to take them out). Well worth a visit, and I hope we can repeat.

  • Paddy and Ian were excellent and engaging hosts who made us feel 'home from home'. The accommodation is modern, spacious, clean and very comfortable and ideally situated for access to the beach and its long esplanade leading to the centre of town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the only regret being that we had to leave too soon to travel north for our flight home.

  • Our stay at Patty and Ian's was perfect and they are the loveliest people! Not only were the house and location stunning, Patty and Ian made us feel totally comfortable sharing heir space. The kitchen is fantastic and we loved cooking in it and then eating outside on the patio. We got some amazing advice about moving to New Zealand and they even helped us find and buy our car. We will definitely be back!

  • Patty and Ian are the nicest and warm-hearted people I´ve met during my stay in NZ. Extremely nice couple, taking care of everything and they`re having beautiful home with absolutely marvelous rooms directly on the coastal walkway. Sweet & lovely & caring people, excellent breakfast and hosts. So sorry I had to leave them after a few days - should`ve stayed longer with them. Best place to stay when you´re in New Plymouth. Thanks for everything, u are gorgeous! Hope to see you when we`ll get back up :) Greetings and a BIG hug! Raphy

  • This is probably the best Airbnb place in New Zealand! The room was big, lovely and with a view to the sea. The bed was confortable and shower had a good pressure. The terrace was a maravellous place to have lunch and the beach is just a few steps from the house. Patricia and Ian were wonderful, warm and generous hosts. We hope to be back some day!

  • On parental leave, we had a beautiful and very lovely time with Patricia and Ian. They were great hosts and have a wonderful house. It is the perfect place to walk at the beautiful Beach and into the City, too.

  • Patricia and Ian have a stunning home in Fitzroy! We left very honored that they welcomed us in to their home to enjoy all it has to offer. We loved the beautiful views of the ocean, Paritutu, and Mt. Taranaki all from their living room and kitchen. The home is kept very clean at all times, and you are welcomed to enjoy all of it including the lovely deck. The guest bedrooms and bathroom are downstairs, so you have your own space and privacy. We enjoyed having breakfast every morning, doing some laundry, and taking the nice bikes out for a lovely ride along the coast paths with great views. We enjoyed being accessible to New Plymouth for restaurants, grocery stores, the park, etc but being set close to the beach in a nice neighborhood. Patricia and Ian truly enjoy welcoming you into their home and will love chatting with you, but also respect your own space. Thank you Patricia and Ian for a wonderful stay!
