Our house is a beautiful Victorian villa from 1899. It is located by the sea and in the heart of New Plymouth. Just a 5-minute stroll to the shops, cafes, restaurants and theatre and right by the coastal walkway which stretches 13 km along the coast. The aquatic centre is a 3-minute stroll away.
The house is spacious and full of character. There are two living areas and plenty of nooks to retreat including a sunroom with sea view.

The space
We live in a quiet part of the city centre​ of New Plymouth, just outside the hustle and bustle of the cafes and shops.
The house is an ideal base for both an active holiday with walks, mountain hikes and surfing or a city trip with cafes, shops, art galleries,​ and a walk through Pukekura park. Taranaki has it all :)

My name is Chantal Hofstee and I am from the Netherlands. After 7 months of travelling the world me and my partner, Pieter permanently settled down in New Zealand. We have found a beautiful old home in the vibrant city of New Plymouth where we are enjoying everything New Zealand has to offer. We absolutely love the lifestyle, nature and relaxed culture of the kiwi's and are planning to stay and raise our family here :) Pieter works as a finance manager and I work part-time as a clinical psychologist.
