Comfortable double bed in light and airy bedroom of a local 1940's heritage house. Wifi, towels, breakfast, tea and coffee all included.
Perfect location for Massey Uni, 2 minute walk to the Lido Aquatic Centre, and the Esplanade.

The space

This is one of two rooms available in our home. The house is in a 1940's heritage area full of unique properties. We are in a great location for Massey University and the town and we provide breakfast in the mornings too.

To get to Massey University there is a bus stop a 2 minute walk away (5-10 minutes journey time on the bus) or you can cycle there in 10-15 minutes. We have a spare bike, helmet and lock which we are happy for you to use during your stay.

It is also only a 2 minute walk to the Lido Aquatic Centre, Esplanade and a Dairy. The Esplanade is a beautiful place to explore and feed the ducks and leads on to the Manawatu river.

The room has a comfortable double bed with electric blanket and mattress topper. There are extra blankets and a heater for the winter. The room is close to the bathroom and an additional toilet. There is plenty of space for clothes in the wardrobe.

The bathroom is modern and light with a lovely large shower, wash basin and toilet.

Guests can use the kitchen to prepare light meals if you leave the kitchen how you found it. Help yourself to breakfast which will be set out in the mornings.

We also have a lovely cat called Simba.

My husband James and I enjoy exploring new places and going on adventures. We first discovered Airbnb when spending 8 months travelling the world, now we like to use it when ever we go away!

We are also keen geocachers, so chances are we will be out hunting for any that are near by!

We have moved to Palmerston North from the UK in October 2015 and moved into our current house in December, where we are finally able to list rooms as hosts. We look forward to welcoming you to our home!
