About This Listing
Te Manapouri is a 1930s New Zealand character house, about 10 minutes walk to the CBD, and in a quiet NZ Heritage Street.
Two guestrooms are available, each with a queen bed; the bathroom is shared by the two rooms. The bedrooms have been furnished to provide a sensuous experience, with quality beds, luxurious linen, towels and robes.
We are located in a very quiet and safe house, close to Central Business District in Palmerston, making us the perfect base to explore the area.
A complementary continental breakfast is included. Your room consists of a shared bathroom, free wifi and computer use. Parking is available in the driveway. We also have a cat on the premises.
Discounts are available for stays =/> 5 days.
Palmerston North is only 2 hours from Wellington, and 2 hours from Napier.
The host is well traveled and experienced in B&B operations in Manhattan NYC where he used to live, and looks forward to meeting you. His interests include photography (his works have been exhibited and published, and in private collections in the USA, Canada, and New Zealand), stain-glass making, and providing trained therapeutic massage for weary travelers, on a massage table.
Lovely house. Relaxing atmosphere...I'd love to come back sometimes. Thanks.
Rudy is very nice and relaxed, his house is one of the best house I've visited, it is very clean and organized. House is only half of the game and Rudy filled the other half with a lot more then he should. After finding out it was my birthday he drove us to dinner with his friends in town and they even had a cake for me and sing together, it is one of the most interesting birthday I ever had, that is love.
Rudyard was very generous with picking me up from the station and making me feel at home. The facilities were very luxurious and he is very meticulous in ensuring a good breakfast with food needs taken care of.
Lovely guy......rooms nice.......neighbourhood lovely and quiet.......would recommend to anyone
Rudyard has a lovely home. A really nice space has been created for his guests, a lovely room, access to a great bathroom, a good internet connection and breakfast in the morning.
I would certainly stay there again and recommend it :)
About the Host, Rudyard
I'm in the health profession (banking hours) but more importantly, a massage therapist and a fantastic cook. I have great local knowledge of the area and also of New Zealand. I have been in the B&B business for over 15 years (I operated one in Manhattan for maybe 7 years)-- so I'm very attuned to travellers' needs and provision of their comfort, as I am a frequent traveller myself (overseas [Europe or North America] 3x/year).
Whenever I travel, I frequently use Air BnB, so I can compare and select services which suit, and provide those in Te Manapouri B&B.
I also emphasise the latter "B" of B&B, which is the custom in America, so guests should expect a fully laid out breakfast in the morning.
