Positioned under the iconic Bastia Hill Tower in a peaceful neighbourhood overlooking the city where there are lots of great eateries and cafes, especially on the main street and near the river front. Whanganui has lots to do and see. If art it your thing there is the Sarjeant Art Gallery as well as a great collection of independent galleries and studios showcasing the amazing local talent. If you're into the outdoors you can take a river cruise on the Waimarie, or go for a walk at Bushy Park and see rare native bird life. There's the family friendly Kowhai Playground that's always a hit with kids, and right at the bottom of our hill. For sports there are events at Cooks gardens, and stock cars.

Getting Around

Just a 2 minute drive to the heart of the city, cafe's and visitor information centre. If you're keen, it would be about a 20 minute walk to town, but would be longer back up hill. A taxi from town will cost around $12-$15

Special conditions: Please be considerate and leave the place tidy on your departure.

  • Great location, easy to find

    Great location, easy to find. Good off-street parking, and close enough to the city. Beautiful rose garden AND a very friendly cat (Max) making a daily visit. My adult nieces especially loved the 1960s style. The lounge carpet was the same as I grew up with! Weather wasn't great but the house was warm and cosy.

  • Lovely spot

    Lovely spot. Views were great and the property itself had a great retro vibe. Very clean tidy and well presented. Very light and bright. Would love to stay for longer next time.

  • Great property, we loved staying here

    Great property, we loved staying here. The kids got a surprise when they realised there was no tv, but they happily entertained themselves watching the fish in the fishpond!

  • Lovely views from the property

    Lovely views from the property. The fire was cosy and inviting. i loved the style of the house, the art, furniture etc It was comfortable and welcoming. There were loads of supplies in the cupboards and it felt like home. We rode our bikes into town and ate at some lovely local restaurants. We picked lemons from a tree down the road for G and Ts. We love Whanganui! The people are so warm and friendly:) Thank you for having us. xxx
