The perfect area for your family or large group getaway. A full house with four bedrooms, large living space with bonus conservatory, fully equipped kitchen, two bathroom areas, heat pump/air-con and Netflix. Includes a bonus range of toiletries and groceries!

This retreat will be just what you need to keep everyone comfortable! There is a herb garden for you to enjoy if you like.

Central to all that Hamilton has to offer. Located down a long driveway hidden from road noise and set on modest gardens for you to enjoy in peace.

We provide coffee, tea, toilet paper, dishwash, washing powder free of charge.

I can meet you personally on arrival, however after dark check-ins are fine too as there is a lockbox.

Please note the check in times before booking, however I often have flexibility so let me know your preference as I most likely will be able to accommodate you!

There is space for one car at the door, and some off street parking space down the shared driveway if needed.. and if your car is small.

Hamilton City is a 5 minute drive, or a 30 minute walk.

The Base Te Rapa is also a 5-10 minute drive.

Waterworld is a 5 minute walk which is great for the kids with many pools (indoor and outdoor), as well as two hydro slides, diving boards, a fully equipped gym and spin cycle classes that run daily.

The Waikato Racing Club is a 2 minute drive, an easy walking distance for afternoons at the races.

Minogue Park is a 2 minute drive with many bush walks close by.

Both Rugby and Cricket Stadiums, are a 10-15 minute drive, as well as the Claudelands Showgrounds.

On Te Rapa straight there are many bakeries and coffee shops, such as Robert Harris Cafe which is less than a 5 minute drive.

There are many close bus stops on the street and neighboring roads.

I'm always on mobile and email and have no issues popping over if needed. Please don't be a stranger - it's all part of the service!
