We aim to be your Home away from Home while your holidaying in "Taradise".
We offer three rooms that have been stylishly redecorated, you'll feel right at home in any of the three bedrooms we have on offer.
The best thing about our area is that we have a view of both Mount Taranaki(Egmont) and the Ocean. We are in a quiet Cul-de-sac right off the main road out of town so it's really easy access. The beaches to the west and the town center to the north are only a five minute drive.
If your staying in New Plymouth for pleasure or business, please consider staying at our place to get your fix of home while your away from home...

Why stay with us?
As the old Kiwi saying goes, Location Location Location! We are just 3km south of the city centre, located high on one the largest hills in New Plymouth. Our North East aspect gives us shelter from the predominant southerly winds and views over the city, the ocean and of course our beloved mountain. Our quiet Cul-de-sac is just a couple of minutes walk from local shops and bus stops, with a reserve behind us it a picture of natural New Zealand beauty. Native trees in both the front and backyards ensure the native birds are constantly feeding and the bird songs are as relaxing as our home.
The harbour is at the foot of our hill, a 1km walk down one rather steep street! In the harbour area are protected swimming beaches and a couple of very nice restraunt/cafes overlooking the glorious harbour setting, our favourites being Gusto Restaurant and the Bach On Breakwater.
From the harbour starts the famous New Plymouth Coastal Walkway. Enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat then stroll the Coastal Walkway into the city centre, it is just one of New Plymouth's "must do" experiences and has to be experienced to really understand the pleasure it brings.
A charming and respectful couple who are really interested in their guests stay .
Meticulous in their hospitality.
High standard of comfort and hygiene.
Marvellous deck area with a panoramic view of ocean and Mt Taranaki.
I felt relaxed and welcomed .
Due to wet weather, we did not get to enjoy views of Mt. Taranaki, but we still enjoyed our visit to the New Plymouth area, and our accommodations at 16 Havelock. Brad will need to update his photos of the front of the house, to show off his newly built and wonderful terrace. We did have a break in the clouds the night we stayed at 16 Havelock, and very much enjoyed sitting at the table on the terrace, sipping wine and chatting with another couple staying in the home. I even was able to do some star gazing and caught my first glimpse of the Southern Cross. Brad and Fujiko keep their property very tidy, and provide a good breakfast; unfortunately, because we lingered over breakfast chatting with Brad instead of putting the final touches on our packing, we felt pressure to clear our bags out of the room so bedding could be changed in preparation for the next guests.
Brad and Fijuko run a very professional B&B setup with a few rooms in their fairly large home. The room is very comfortable and is nicer than the pictures!
I've been staying with Brad and Fujiko in their lovely B&B for the first couple of weeks of my move from the UK to live and work in New Plymouth.
It's been fantastic, they've been so helpful with everything and looked after me so well I don't want to leave!
Couldn't recommend staying with Brad and Fujiko enough.
I had an absolutely fantastic time with Brad and Fujiko! Unfortunately I only stayed one night, but in that time we had dinner together and ended up really enjoying each other's company for the rest of the evening, Their's is a very professional set-up, and I'm sure they would accommodate your every wish. It was a joy staying with Brad and Fujiko, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to NZ. New Plymouth is a very cool place too.
We had our best airbnb experience with Brad and Fujiko! So good was it that we extended our two night stay to three! The room was so comfortable, breakfast delicious, and the view of Taranaki from their lounge window spectacular. Fujiko cooked us a special dinner of delicious Japanese food. If we ever have a chance to visit the district again, we certainly would want to stay again with Brad and Fujiko.
My mother and I had a very comfortable stay with brad and fujiko. Wonderful breakfasts, warm friendly hosts. And a splendid mountain view from the lounge.
A lovely and peaceful BnB with wonderful hosts. Thank you, Brad. I would come back anytime.
Brad & Fujico were very accommodating and the food was amazing! Highly recommended. Thanks heaps.
Friendly hosts with comfrotable digs in a great location to visit New Plymouth sites. You need a car or bike as it is a bit away from downtown but the views are great, breakfasts delicious and possibilities for yummy suppers too.
