Enhanced Clean
This host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
Here you’ll find a warm and simple space to unwind away from your usual reality, or towards your new one, whatever the case may be. Cosy in Winter, open and cool in Summer. This space has been set up in 8 months after returning to Gisborne due to Covid. It has been sourced from gracious donations, opshops and marketplace so bohemian, slightly rustic in it’s essence.

The space
Open Living space with a cosy wood fire positioned in the heart of it. Attached to this a modest Galley style Kitchen with slim breakfast bar, built in pantry at lounge end which contains the fridge. Slightly awkward, opens the wrong way but; functional, and; work in progress. No dishwasher as yet sorry so psych yourself for old school hand washing.

A freshly painted interior which features exposed rafters teamed with harmonious retro, mainly wooden furnishings. The sunroom is Devine for the morning coffee as with the patio weather permitting. Patio includes a small table and chairs, a sun lounger and a Jack and Jill style bench seat under a sturdy umbrella which can be stowed away when not in use.

The Master bedroom is spacious with a Queen sized bed, TV and bay window, beside this a craft room/office, followed by a significantly smaller bedroom with an extremely comfortable Queen sized bed. Both rooms have ample built in robes and storage which will be cleared for You.

1 bathroom (humble in size but the same can not be said for the shower pressure), 1 toilet at the end of the house past the Laundry (which usually doubles as my studio). Washing line or clothes horse, no dryer.

Decently sized back yard, which is relatively well fenced off. Keen and agile canines may be able to find a way over as there is a low, slightly exposed boundary on one side, but yes, dog friendly. Gardens are still evolving, you should be able to find some herbs and leafy greens if you look hard enough.

There is a smart projector in the lounge for cosy movie nights and loads of oxygen rich plants decorating the space. Creativity welcomed and encouraged, a few instruments about the place, plenty of space to create.

Where you’ll be

Gisborne, New Zealand

This 2 bedroom house in Mangapapa is on a quiet street with a Primary school down one end and a Park with meandering bush walks and playground at the other.

An 8 minute drive to town, 10 to Midway beach, cafe’s, dairy’s and takeaway’s spotted along Ormond road, which runs parallel to Perry. Balance street Village is a 3 minute drive where you can find most of what you’re looking for. Neighbourhood Pizzeria highly recommended. 4 square 3 minutes drive Winter street, Hospital just beyond this.

Turanga gardens a 10 minute walk up Hospital hill, with a killer view of Young Nicks Head enroute, (recommended on sunset), Botanical Gardens and Turanga River a 10 minute walk towards town.
