Lovely renovated villa, in a sub tropical garden, 7 minutes walking distance to Coromandel town, at the end of a side street adjacent to a stream and river reserve with country views and the coromandel hotel 2 minutes away. Spacious living areas and a cool wrap around covered verandah. Two bathrooms, one with a washing machine. There's 3 bedrooms in the villa, 2 with Queen beds , 1 with 2 single beds
The cabin near the back deck has an English double bed, most comfortable for 1, can fit 2

The space
It's a sweet old villa from about 1900 that has had a few alterations in the meantime. We have renovated recently bringing modern, simple spacious style to combine with eclectic and period features. The property has 2 separate houses that face away from one another, providing privacy and ease of use of the whole house for your family or group. I am usually not too far away if there are any requests or problems. The road is a quiet side street with countryside views and adjacent to a river reserve with 2 clear swimming holes and a grassy space with trees. A minute or so in the other direction coromandel hotel provides meals in their dining room as well as pub menu at the bar. 7 minutes walking further and you're in the centre of charming Coromandel town.
Parking is across the road from the airbnb. My loud, large, friendly dog will most likely bark while wagging his tail, announcing your arrival. He is usually on our property but if he does greet you at the car, just ignore his announcements and proceed to the house at the right as you look at the property from the car park. It's the one with the verandah out the front. The entrance has 2 very old vines shading the walkway, wisteria and grape. They are really old and sometimes we have to duck a bit :) Theres a couple of steps up to the verandah that make the property unsuitable for people unsteady on their feet unless accompanied. There is not a hand rail. The Villa has 3 bedrooms and a cabin near the back verandah off the kitchen. Each of the bathrooms are accessed from either end of the covered verandahs, one outside the kitchen door, one outside the French doors. Bedroom 3 and the cabin can therefore go directly into the bathroom without going inside. Bedroom 1 &2 simply go through the door onto either verandah and the WC and bathroom are right there.

Guest access
Guests have the entire house and verandahs also back yard where the cabin is. There is an outdoor shower in another area of back yard which is sometimes shared by me along with a rotary clothes line

Other things to note
I do not provide breakfast. You have the house to yourselves.I'm not there to be able to cook for you. I provide tea and coffee and milk though. PLEASE don't wear shoes inside OR move the couches around. My first guests have moved the French couch without putting the rubber protectors under the rollers and have DENTED the new linoleum

Location

Coromandel, Waikato, New Zealand

It's a special place that has the real convenience of being 7 minutes walk to town, 1 minute walk to a pub, 1 minute walk to a waterhole and grassy reserve with trees, 5 minutes walk from the ferry drop off/pick up point. I really enjoy the countryside views and vibe and at the same time, town water supply and services and no need for a car if I want to walk. The garden is sub-tropical and unusual. The house itself has a happy vibe, was at one time the lions den hostel which hosted many happy travellers over the years

Hi I'm a friendly relaxed person. I work from home doing remedial massage therapy. I have a cat. I am well travelled and love travelling, I speak German as well as English and a tiny bit of Italian and French. I have 4 wonderful adult children. My hobby is sculpture, specifically casting in glass. I am interested in A R T in all forms and my passion is my work which I love.Alongside my healing work I am also a voice over artist. I am an open, honest and optomistic person. I sell organic skincare and offer organic ayurvedic facials along with deep tissue massage and pranic healing treatments as well as TBT. My style of hosting is to expect you to be fairly independent. I am happy to help with local knowledge and travel tips for Coromandel and NZ. Although I've travelled widely and lived in Europe several times I love New Zealand. Sometimes my work takes me out of the country in which case I have wonderful co-hosts Marthe and Sy who live on site at those times and can help out with any AirBnB requests and bookings. Magnesium chloride oil spray ( highly beneficial for health) is available for purchase at my premises. The organic skincare I use and am affiliated to is available in $NZ, $AU and $US through my web store (Website hidden by Airbnb) I look forward to meeting the guests that come through, I have made some great connections with some lovely people from all around the planet. Welcome.

During your stay
I am available by email and text during your stay. I have a healing practice on the premises so I'm sometimes in appointments and could take an hour or so to respond. Occasionally I am massaging at Mana retreat centre which may not have reception, in which case it might be longer. I will let you know at the time. I have tried to make sure that you have the main things you will need. I do take massage appointments for guests, when possible, I will often require a little bit of notice. I have set things up in a way that you shouldn't require too much interaction and can just get on with having a lovely stay and enjoying all Coromandel has to offer. I also host women's weekend retreats at the accommodation, let me know if you have enquiries about that.
