We'd love to host you in our cute, fully self-contained guest cottage in rural Tokomaru. This little (but spacious) house has everything you need including full cooking facilities (stove, oven/ microwave, dishwasher, fridge, utensils), all linen, washer/dryer, Bose sound link to play your own music and free wifi. NO extra cleaning or linen fees are added onto price. Less than 20 minutes to Palmerston North and 10 minutes to Massey University & Linton Army camp.

The space
Our light and airy cottage is tucked away amongst flaxes (harakeke) offering a private place to base yourself for a visit to the Manawatu. The queen size bed, is super comfy, and the cottage has all the things you would need for an extended stay. Underfloor heating, air conditioning and electric blankets will keep you warm in winter,. The many windows and doors on both sides of the cottage allow for fresh cooling breezes to flow through in Summer.
The living area is sunny and contains a sofa bed should you have extra guests ( which allows for 4 guests total).
This is a very safe area although we do have security cameras on the driveway for your peace-of-mind.

Where you’ll be

Tokomaru, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

Tokomaru is a small village which was the heart of New Zealand's flax milling industry at the beginning of the 20th Century. Now it is a quaint little village with many residents commuting to PN or nearby Linton Army camp for work. The local RSA & Country Club is open on Thursday & Saturday nights (across the road from us) and the local store sells take-aways most nights. Thai takeaways are available from a local food truck vendor on Wednesday & Thursday nights. Horseshoe bend is a fabulous local swimming hole - pack a picnic and enjoy swimming in the local river.
