This home is at 8A Sawyers Way in the heart of New Plymouth close to the coastal walkway leading to the port,swimming and surf beaches, bars, cafés and night life. The walkway is also a excellent bike ride, bring your own or hire from Chaddys Charters, Wind Wanderers etc and kayaks can be hired for Ngamotu Beach. New Plymouths Pukekura Park is renowned for the summer Festival of Lights and entertainment, particularly at the Bowl of Brooklands which hosts concerts such as the world class WOMAD.

New Plymouth has spectacular gardens and is only a short drive to Tupare, Pukeiti(Rhododendrons) and Pukekuras under glass Fernery is well worth a visit. The nearby harbour provides ample opportunity for fishing enthusiasts on the breakwater and for those who want to venture further past the Sugar Loaf Isles there are plenty of fishing charters available.

There are spectacular views of New Plymouth from Paritutu Rock near the port and for the more adventurous North Egmont Visitors Centre is a must and is only a half an hours drive away.

All this information and more can be obtained from the Pukeariki Museum I-site which is 15 minutes walk or a short drive to the city centre whilst in the opposite direction Chaddys Museum is not to be missed and a special lifeboat trip round the islands to see the seal colony is amazing.

Also enjoy the recently opened Len Lye Art Centre opposite the clock tower.

  • Uncomfortable stay

    Uncomfortable stay. Rudely woken day 1-people walking/talking outside bedroom windows at back of house. We found a lady in the garage, accessed from house by an unlockable door, who said she was the owner, lives there & was surprised we'd be sleeping after 8. No notice given. Lives here? Where? Assume behind door marked Private, we assumed that was owner's storage as website says 'owner near' not 'owner lives on the premises'. No other communication. External garage back door left wide open.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Apologies for the backdoor left open- my builder was finishing off landscaping and garden shed building over the weekend and was given a key so should have locked up plus needed an hour to complete the job Monday 8.30-9.30 . I was working at Riding For Disabled all week and just checked with him on progress as he had another job to go to. I also started work at 9 each day and am very concerned he had not locked the door on finishing- most unacceptable.

  • We contacted Jan weeks before our stay to put away any breaklables...

    We contacted Jan weeks before our stay to put away any breaklables as we have young children. This wasn't done so we did it when we arrived, putting what we could back before our departure. Jan entered the property without our permission whenever we would go out exploring. We felt very uncomfortable and this had a negative impact on our holiday as we no longer wanted to go out. She left us a neutral feedback which was disappointing as we are good renters and left the property clean and tidy.

    Owner/manager responds:

    This comment is a little unfair as I only entered once to turn off a heater that had been left on ,as the day was warm and sunny and I told the family I had done this as I thought they had forgotten. I had explained at the time of booking that my place was not suitable for a young family having only 2 Queen sized bedrooms. This was the first time I relented to have children in portable cots as I hadn't expected for my beds and furnishing to be rearranged or removed.

  • An awesome place to stay

    An awesome place to stay. Large enough to accommodate two couples easily. Ideal location - close to the Coastal Walkway and CBD. Clean and tidy.
