About this listing
16 Havelock Bed and Breakfast is your home away from home, we run a professional B&B and if I'm turning down your booking please understand that it's only because I don't have a room as we have become really popular this last Summer.
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.
Your own private room. And the entire house is open for you to kick back and make the most of the relaxing atmosphere...
Interaction with Guests
We live in the house so interaction is as much or as little as you'd like!
We have stunning views of the Mountain and good views over the City and Ocean. The street is a quiet Cul-de-sac on one of the biggest hills in New Plymouth. Very quiet and peaceful neighbourhood.
There is a bus stop not more than a 200M from the front door but the local bus service is not very regular... It's a small Kiwi city!
We don't have many rules here at 16 Havelock.
The only really strict one we have is no shoes inside the house. It just saves tramping all that New Zealand dirt into the house...
Smoking outside only please.
Other than that, well, I guess you could say that "Make yourself at Home!" is our number two rule. Really, I mean your here to enjoy yourself, having fun is mandatory if your here on holiday is it not?
