Nice comfortable self-contained open plan two bedroom house with a rural backdrop.

Sit on the sun drenched deck listening to the native birds and if you are lucky enough see a wild deer or two or goats might stroll pass or have a quiet night on the deck with a wine under the stars.

On colder nights/days sit in the cozy lounge watching a movie or t.v in front of the fire.

The house is located on a quiet street with a bus stop to go to town for $2.50 or hire some of the 5 bikes for a small charge to cycle along the lovely whanganui river bank along the mighty whanganui walkway to the historic city center or bustling Saturday markets,the historic Waimarie and #12 tram or cycle up to the Virginia Lake to feed the ducks (bread can be supplied on arrangement) see the Winter Gardens and Bird Aviary.

The house is well built to have the sun in nearly all rooms, most of the day and is very user friendly with an open plan living lounge that can be divided if you what a quiet time away from the kids.

The kitchen is very well stocked with baking utensils etc. and the bathroom is a very spacious wet floor with hand rails for the older guests.

Sorry but the house is not suitable for disability purposes at this stage.Due to to the three steps into the house in the front, with hand rail and the deck steps at the back. but once in the house is fairly wheelchair friendly.

When it comes to bedtime you are sure to have a good sleep in the super king size bed fitted with snuggly polar sheets so warm that you probably won't need the electric blanket that is supplied.

The owners are very willing to make your stay rememberable as possible. Just ask and we will try our best to help out with extra beds,Having the fire going on arrival , bottle of wine chilling, bunch of flowers for that romantic weekend on request for a small charge.

    As listed a quiet location in a retro styled house making it like a home away from home. Lovely warm fire and comfy bed. Loved the extra touches, will definitely look to book this again if staying in wanganui. Hopefully also at a time when we can try some of your girls free ranged eggs :)

    The property is nicely presented with very comfortable easy chairs, a very good woodburner, so we were very snug. It is a lovely quiet location tucked under the hillside.
