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.

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.

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).
For those wishing to stay longer than a week or if you have unique requirements, please message us.
Continental breakfast (toasts, cereals) is included in the price. However, a cooked breakfast is available for an additional NZD$15 per person, per day.
Please enquire if you have any special requests or requirements as we are more than happy to try and meet them.
As we are retired, if we are available, we are happy to also act as your tour guide for a fee. We have lived in New Plymouth for over 60 years, and know of many wonderful landmarks and places to explore.
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
Patricia and Ian were wonderful host. They are very welcoming, they make us feel at home. The house is beautiful, spacious and the room was big and confortable. They have a great view on the Taranaki mountain and the beach. The house is well located; close the to city and 2 mins by walk to the beach. The breakfast was very good. They gave us good suggestions of activities to do in New Plymouth and around. We definitely recommand Patricia and Ian house. It´s an excellent airbnb and you'll love it !!
Thank you so much !!
Luxurious bed and breakfast with first class service,the views are worth the cost alone and to add to this you receive a lovely welcome, good hospitality and great recommendations! Thanks for a great stay. David
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!
Patricia and Ian take very well care of their guests. They offer a comfortable house, great seaviews and a very homey feeling. They really enjoy to share their house, e.g. the living room, kitchen, garden, terrace and if necessary facilities like washing machine etc.
It 's quite a bit of a distance to the bus station and they offer to pick up and bring away their guests. Great to be able to use the bicycle! So I look back on a marvellous stay, and I recommend their place to anybody else looking for a welcoming place in such a beautifull surrounding!
A really spacious clean house with a great location, fantastic view from the top floor, and welcoming hosts. Patricia made sure we were comfortable and well-looked after, from hiking snacks to tea biscuits to laundry, and set us up with accommodation and activities for our onward journey to Taupo. This would be a great place for a family holiday-- take out the whole bottom floor and go kayaking from the beach everyday!
