  • We came to Whanganui for our kids' sports games recently and stayed in B & V's Cute Little Bach for 2 nights. Verona & Brian are great hosts - we arrived on a dark rainy night but it was like arriving home as they have left the lights on for us and the house was toasty warm. They are very thoughtful about all the little things which have made a big difference to our stay. The house is very clean and comfortable both inside and outside with everything we would need for the stay. I have really enjoyed relaxing in the big back deck and hammock! It truly is a home away from home. My kids love it too. They are very easy and quick to communicate too. Would definitely love to stay here again.

  • We couldn't have wished for a better place when it came to walking into a place that had a lovely homely feel to it with everything we needed for a relaxed and comfortable holiday. It really was an authentic NZ bach near the sea.

    Helen2017-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful place. B and V have a lovely home that is set up for a relaxing weekend away. It is just out of town and is in a very quiet little neighbourhood. Thanks for a fantastic stay!

    Aaron2018-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • A great Kiwiana batching experience. Sleep to the sound of the sea every night. 5 min walk to the beach and local cafe. Only a 5 min drive into town.

    Adrian2018-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place by the coast, family all enjoyed time at the batch during the school holidays

    Craig2018-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best places we've stayed, good space, comfy, good price, good location, good hosts we booked an extra night. Thanks

    Jason2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely warm bach well equipped wth everything and more a family would need. Clean and with a very homely feel. Thanks for having us

    Hazel2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Trouble with writing good reviews of fantastic finds: more people will know how great a place is and then its harder to get back in! B & V's place is a perfect get-away for a small family. The two bedrooms are great with that all-important to parents thing - great black-out blinds & curtains. Very necessary in glorious late afternoon/evening sunset times, if you have younger ones that should be asleep before the sun goes completely down. A short walk to the beach north of the mouth of the Whanganui river, and a fabulous set of dunes & shaded bush-tracks. Can't speak to the quality of surf there while we were resident, but did see lots of beach walkers & the occasional car driving carefully along part of the beach. Speaking of cars, although we knew that there was local bus services, we didn't use them. We loved the steep drive which allowed us to unload all our gear onto the big back deck. Our children loved the trampoline & hammock: we loved the immediately on-hand entertainment this provided. Other great things over and above expected beach-'Bach' Kiwi bright decor and word-art were these: Help-yourself garden vegetables & fruits; Toys & games for a range of ages; Beautiful A-V for DVD-Bluray player; Lots of kitchen implements; Outdoor BBQ (older, but fully functional); Good WiFi (easy to set-up & consistent whilst we were there). One last stand-out was the communication with the owners. We had an unusually strong gale-force storm come through on the 2nd night which did some damage to the place (no harm to us). Brian drove from more than an hour away to come & rectify & check out the rest of the place. We are definitely going back when we can & will stay at another of their places very soon. Thanks B & V!

  • Wir verbrachten mit zwei Kindern zwei Nächte bei Jane und waren froh, in einer so großen Wohnung untergekommen zu sein. Die Küche war fantastisch ausgestattet, so dass dem Kochvergnügen nichts im Wege stand. Auch das Frühstück (Brot, Marmelade und Kompott von Jane zubereitet sowie Eier von den hauseigenen Hühnern) war fantastisch! Jane war eine liebenswerte Gastgeberin, die uns tolle Tipps für unsere Tagesplanung gegeben hat. Wir haben uns alle wohl bei ihr gefühlt.

    Geeske2018-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Ausserordentlich schöne, ungewöhnlich gut ausgestattete, blitzsaubere Unterkunft Superfreundliche Gastgeber. Eigenes Brot, selbstgemachte Marmelade, frische Eier zum Frühstück. Frischer Blumenstrauß in jedem Zimmer Wer das nicht bucht ist selber schuld.

    Rainer2018-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Eine sehr schöne Unterkunft mit einem super tollem Frühstück. Sehr nette Gastgeber , auf jedem Fall zu empfehlen.

    Karin2017-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Diese Unterkunft kann man nur mit vollem Herzen weiter empfehlen. Jane ist eine großartige Gastgeberin. Sie hat das Apartment liebevoll eingerichtet, so dass man sich sehr wohl fühlt. Ihr Frühstück ist außergewöhnlich gut. Alles ist frisch zubereitet und stammt zum großen Teil aus dem eigenen (sehr schön angelegten) Garten. Bei Fragen steht Jane jeder Zeit super freundlich zur Verfügung. Wir würden hier jederzeit wieder buchen. Jane verdient in jeder Hinsicht volle Sternen Anzahl.

    Silke2015-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent accueil chez Jane. Appartement spacieux, chaleureux et tres bien équipé. Petit-déjeuner copieux et excellentissime, avec bcp de produits maison (pain, confiture, cake, etc.).

    Brigitte2015-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • What a well-equiped and spacious apartment! Thanks Jane for the delicious breakfast and bread. We enjoyed the walking distance to Whanganui city center.

    Louiselle2015-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Thankyou Jane and Grant for hosting us in your beautiful accommodation and to your property. We were very comfortable, and loved the opportunity to meet "Echo" the playful pooch! The best backyard...and your home made goodies were a delight for all of us especially your home baked bread, jams and slices. The beds were so comfy and we loved the extra comfort of the soft mink blankets. A beautiful welcome for us on such a blistery wet day!! Thankyou Janelle

  • Wir würden von Marius persönlich begrüßt, er hat und alles gezeigt und wir haben uns ein wenig unterhalten. Die Unterkunft selbst war super, sehr modern und stylisch, wirklich sehr gemühtlich. Ein Pluspunkt war auch die kleine Kochplatte, wir konnten warm Abendessen. Das Bad und das Schlafzimmer haben uns auch sehr gefallen. Beide Damen hoch für Marius & Adél!

    Anna2018-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Sehr moderne, luxuriöse Ausstattung. Ruhige Lage. Freundliche Gastgeber. Gerne wieder.

    Walter2018-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Für uns mit Abstand die beste Unterkunft bisher. Sehr großzügig, modern und komfortabel. Adele, Marius, Tochter Tanja und ihre verrückten zwei Hunde haben unseren Aufenthalt zu einem ganz besonderen Erlebnis werden lassen. Für eine Auszeit vom Trubel genau das richtige. Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert.

    Lisa2017-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Super gelegen nur ein kurzer Fußweg zum kilometerlangen Strand. Toll für Strandspaziergänge. Die Unterkunft ist modern und großzügig. Marius und Adel haben uns nett empfangen.

  • Tolles Studio, tolle Einrichtung und sehr nette Gastgeber!

    Gudula2017-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Schade, dass wir nur eine Nacht hier verbracht haben. Wer ein paar Tage Ruhe braucht und von den vielen Eindrücken einer Rundreise eine Auszeit benötigt, ist hier goldrichtig. Man erwartet einen Raum zum Schlafen und eine kleine Kochgelegenheit und bekommt ein komplettes Appartement mit allem drum und dran. Wir haben hier nichts vermissst. Wenn wir das nächste mal auf dieser Ecke unterwegs sind, werden wir mit Sicherheit 3 Tage oder mehr buchen. Very good job Marius !!!

    Thorsten2017-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • A really beautiful place that feels like you have stepped into a luxury hotel. All that you need is there, just to hide away for few days. The beach is close and the surrounds give you a real idea of NZ rural and coastal living.

    Simon2017-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • 2 nights in this property was not enough. This one bedroom 'sleep out' is simple with beautiful decor set to the backdrop of castlecliff golf course and a stones throw from the beach. Both hosts were more than accommodating (our late arrival was no issue at all) and are happy to help. Privacy is assured if you wish. You cannot find a better place to stay in the area. Highly recommended

    Our place is close to Virginia Lake and Peat Park. It is near the entrance to the lake's walking tracks, gardens, and a children's playground. We are on a bus route to town, 3 or 4 minutes away. Bicycles available. You’ll love my place because of the quiet and secluded space of the room, the comfortable double bed plus two single beds. This space is ideal for one or two travellers wanting privacy and independence, a couple or a small family with one or two children. Off street parking space.
    Modern and clean, at the rear of the property, this space is separate from the house with a deck looking out to a spa and pool which you are welcome to use. Your space is self- contained, with a refrigerator and microwave, electric jug and toaster, although you may also choose to use the kitchen in the house also. The property is secure with a remote controlled gate and parking space for your vehicle just outside the room.
    Our place is on a tree-lined street, near the very old established park grounds of Virginia Lake Reserve. Five minutes down the hill is Peats Park where there is a large enclosure for the public to visit and feed the tame fallow deer there.
  • Amazing place at such a good private location! We loved our little trip away as a couple using the spa and walks down to the winter gardens were absolutely wonderful :)

    Holly-Rose2018-07-18T00:00:00Z

    Lovely studio apartment tastefully decorated with kitchenette and private bathroom with off street parking. Located on the River with garden outlook. Easy to find, walking distance to shops and a nice walk into town along the river.
  • Margaret greeted us warmly. The accommodation was good value for money. She had provided fresh fruit and tea coffee and milk etc. The bed was comfy. The room was a little cold on the first night but warmed up once we left the heater on fulltime. Thanks. We'll use it again.

    Quiet area. Flat faces a beautiful sunny reserve. Only a few steps away from the neighborhood shopping centre. Pharmacy, Ballet Dance Studio, Bakery, Fish & Chips, Hair Salon, and Dairy. City bus stop (on your left) into town only a few steps away from the flat. Five minute walk to beautiful Lake Virginia (on your right) and The Funky Duck Cafe. St Chads Anglican Church directly across the street.
    Our neighborhood is very safe and has just about everything you need to make your stay here fun and comfortable. Virginia Lake (5 min. walk from the house) is beautiful and has 3 walking trails, a museum, and a cafe (The Funky Duck). Lots of ducks, geese and swan. There is also a beautiful fountain on the lake that lights up after dark. A gold coin will do the trick..... :) Great place to walk or jog!
    Our neighborhood is very safe and has just about everything you need. People are very friendly and this area is used quite a bit by those who are exercising: walking, running, cycling or jogging.
  • Einer der besten Unterkünfte die wir in NZ hatten. Der Blick von der der Terrasse ist traumhaft. Super ausgestattete Küche. Herzliche Gastgeber. Parkplatz vor der Tür. Besser geht nicht. Nicht umsonst haben wir sofort nach Ankunft verlängert!

  • The hosts are super friendly and helpful, making sure the place is set up for a comfortable stay - furniture, bedding, food, etc. The only drawback of the place is that being based under the hosts' house, there is little noise insulation from the top floor, so if you are a sensitive sleeper, you may struggle to have a good sound sleep. Also, wifi signal is very weak, so be prepared to use mobile data or have no internet.

    Marina2017-03-30T00:00:00Z

    My place is 6 minutes drive from the city centre (2.8km) and in a quiet cul-de-sac street. It is a lovely area - St Johns Hill border - safe & quiet at night. We are 5 minutes walk to Springvale Park and all its sports amenities including the Splash (swimming) Centre and Whanganui's new kids bike park. It is 5 minutes drive up the hill to the beautiful Virginia Lake with walking tracks and a great cafe. 2 minutes drive to all main supermarkets.

Parking is up the driveway right outside your entrance door. Your private entrance is through the internal garage.
    As one of the Whanganui sayings goes - "It is only 5 minutes to anywhere". My place is only a matter of minutes drive to the town centre and Victoria Avenues great cafes, restaurants and boutique stores, the beautiful Whanganui River, the famous Waimarie Paddle Steamer, the Saturday morning Riverside Markets, the shared pathways bike ride or walk around the city bridges. In the other direction (heading west), we are only 5 minutes to Virginia Lake. A little bit further but well worth it is Windermere Cafe and Berry Farm - 8 minutes drive (pick your own strawberries!). The impressive Bason Botanic Gardens (11 minutes) and the gorgeous Kai Iwi Beach (13 minutes).

  • Our stay at Lana’s was awesome. She is a fantastic host, and went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Lana is great to talk to, and helped us with a lot of information about Wanganui. Lana’s children are lovely too. The loft is a nice large space, very cosy comfortable bed, and the continental breakfast is great (and much appreciated by us). We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend to other travellers.

    Anita2018-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lana's place is a great place for resting! the bed was very comfortable and warm, the breakfast was great and Lana was very nice! the room is huge so you can have space for all of your things and the bathroom is beautiful. We would definitely go back to spend some more days!

    Jenny2018-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lana’s loft was like a home away from home! She was the most graceful hostess, and we honestly would have been happy to pay double the price for such a spacious and well thought out room. There was maximal privacy, a complete breakfast and a huge space to unpack! Moreover, Lana’s 3 beautiful children were so polite and welcoming, adding a homely aspect to our stay!

    Tammy2018-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Pleasure to stay here again. Lana's accommodation has the best and perfect winter sheets/bed ever, very respectful and kind conversationalist. Thanks Lana !

The house is surrounded by decks, iconic NZ tree ferns, birds, and other native flora. The bed is very comfortable (great feedback on this), the linen is very nice quality and I provide nice quality pillows in firm and soft, as such preferences are important :-)
    The neighbourhood feels like you're in the countryside but great city amenities are so conveniently close by. It is walking distance (at most 15 mins) to the city and great cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries, movie theatres, a glass studio, the main shopping street, a supermarket and the tourist information office. It is very green and leafy, with lots of native NZ flora and birds. The Whanganui River is located just down the hill, 10 minutes away. There's a 15 minute walk up Durie Hill to the Memorial Tower where after a wee climb you get the most fantastic 360 degree views of Wanganui - Mt Taranaki, Mt Ruapehu, the river, the sea, the city, the suburbs, and if timed right, the sunset into the sea to the west. The unique elevator (one of only two in the world) that travels through Durie Hill to its peak is also nearby. There are many pleasant loop walks "Around the Bridges", of varying length that give lovely views of the city, its suburbs and the river. According to a number of guests, Wanganui is NZ's "best kept secret". It is also a great gateway to New Plymouth, National Park and the central plateau, or Wellington if you are travelling south. We are located close to SH3 and SH4.
  • Dear Donna and Bill, staying at your beautiful house nested in peaceful green and getting to know you both has been a wonderful present. One I will not forget and I am thankful for so many warm attentions and thoughtfulness in every little detail to make our stay the most enjoyable. Our outing to the horse races and our plentyful conversations were all moments of harmony which I hope that we will have the opportunity to repeat in future: my invitation stands. From the heart and with warm hugs, Christophe

  • Une maison très calme....agréable...un espace réservé pour nous sdb privée...un vrai bonheur....

    Ophelie2015-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We got in late on a Friday night but Donna was still happy to give us a full welcome. The room was lovely with a very comfortable bed and all the conveniences of a boutique hotel. We left early the next morning and Donna was up with us to prepare coffee and breakfast - a great way to start the day after a good night's sleep. Wouldn't hesitate to stay with again.

    Dominic2015-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed for only one night at Donna's b&b and it was perfect. Donna gave us a lot of information about the activities and restaurants in the area. She did everything to make us feel like home. The room and the bathroom were brilliant, a really luxurious place and everything was perfectly clean. We enjoyed Donna's b&b very much and would recommend it to everyone who's looking for a place to stay in Whitianga.

    Ilse2015-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed my stay with Donna and Bill! Wonderful accomodation, breakfast and company.

    Peter2016-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Donna was an amazing host. She was very willing to make us feel comfortable in her home after a long day of travel from the US. It rained during our stay, and Donna made sure we made it into town in a dry car, but also provided us with bikes when we wanted to go out and about on our own. She gave us maps and great suggestions for things to do in Whanganui. The house is a short but lovely walk into town, and if you're looking for a nice bike ride to the sea Donna will be happy to show you the way. Her home is beautiful and clean, but it's also a very cozy and relaxed environment. She provided a delicious breakfast with plums right out of her backyard! She's a very accommodating host and a very interesting person to chat with. However, she is also happy to give you some space if you need it. We really enjoyed our stay.

    Gabriel2016-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Donna and her husband were fantastic hosts. We felt very welcomed as soon as we arrived and we couldn't ask for a better way to start our trip in New-Zealand. Our room was lovely, clean and the bed extremely comfortable. Hope we can visit again in the not too far future. Damien & Anastasia

  • Absolut traumhafte Unterkunft für Liebhaber der 'goldenen 60er'. Die gesamte Einrichtung und der Wohn-Stil ist original aus dieser Zeit. Fühlte mich in meine frühe Kindheit zurückversetzt. :) Wir hatten das ganze Haus für uns allein, ein wirklich tolles Erlebnis.

    Andreas2017-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • It's an amazing place. Despite the description I wasn't expecting the rooms to be so large and for each bedroom to have an ensuite. Awesome, would stay here again.

    Tracey2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with lovely view of Whanganui.

    Jana2017-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Exquisite! What a treat to stay in such a beautiful and elegant home. It’s incredibly stylish + oh so comfortable with beautiful mid-century furniture and homewares. Gosh, I thought it looked great in the photos but the real thing was even better. It’s really spacious inside (like the Tardis) and it’s located in a lovely quiet, leafy area with beautiful walking pathways nearby. We strolled past a deer sanctuary and meandered into town. We had a wonderful stay and the only regret is that it was too short. We didn’t want to leave. Michael and the local host are brilliant communicators. Thank you. We would love to stay here again.

    Trisha2016-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This home stay is a entire floor of what was a servant house of a huge estate. It has 2 master bedrooms each with its own bathroom. There is a huge living room and large kitchen and dining room too! All the rooms have large windows and views. It is located in a quiet residential area and so a great sleep in the large comfortable beds. There is a very nice easy walk,around a lake, just a couple blocks up the hill. Look for the gate ans sign as it looks like a private driveway as you walk past. Very pretty,flat walk all the way around- couple km.

    Karen2016-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay - spacious, well equipped, quiet and comfortable. Easy access with a lockbox and personal contact available if there are any questions or issues. Highly recommended!

    Marjorie2016-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a real treasure of a place and has everything you could wish for and more. The perfect AirBnB!

    John2017-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house is absolutely beautiful - great location, amazing view, clean and cozy! We only had one night, but I would have loved to stay longer. Would recommend this place any day! Michael is really good at communicating and directing his guest. Check in was very easy and directions we were given were spot on. One of the best airbnb houses I have ever stayed. Thank you!

    Nicky2018-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • My family used Charmae as “home base” for our mother’s 100th birthday. We used every bed in the place, including a cot, although not all of them every night. We also had a couple of dinners in the house for 15 and 20 people. We all found a place to sit and all the equipment to cook. It was a fantastic house for a big family get-together and Allan could not have been more helpful – and accommodating.

    Elaine2017-03-28T00:00:00Z

    Designed in 1961 this house is light and bright and provides a very peaceful, private and relaxing setting. It has great views over Whanganui surrounds and a lovely outlook towards the hills. On a clear day you can see Mt Taranaki.
    The house has polished wooden floors, a wood burner in the lounge and a heater in each bedroom. There is a lovely view from all North/ North-West aspects. It is a very peaceful, quiet and relaxing place where you can truly unwind. There is a garage underneath the house suitable for a small car, with internal access to the house.
    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 Park 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.
  • Brian and Nigel are great hosts and are very responsive to all your needs

    Louisa2018-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • A great location and home, that is spacious for families or groups with plenty of extra space and beds. Has just what you need for a home away from home. Brian and Nigel were very accomodating and great at responding. Their house had everything we needed for our stay.

    Mariam2018-01-14T00:00:00Z

    Jameel And Danielle2016-12-21T00:00:00Z

    Anna-Maria2016-10-18T00:00:00Z

    Centrally located overlooking the Whanganui River, a short walk to downtown Whanganui, our sunlit,spacious & fully equipped first floor one bedroom apartment has a queen bed with a king single available in an adjacent living and dining area. A glass enclosed entrance has a circular staircase and hanging lights lead to the apartment. Moonlight shines on the waters of the Whanganui River in the evening and by day the riverbank pathway opposite is perfect to get that morning coffee or to exercise.
    There is a wonderful view of the river from the lounge and dining area with evening views made even more special when the moon sits over the opposite hills . Double glazed front windows reduce any road noise although traffic is at a minimum at night. Sliding glass doors open to a deck perfect for your morning coffee or early evening glass of wine . The kitchen has modern appliances and equipped to enable you to prepare a meal . Although there are a great selection of eateries very close by . The bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed is quiet with quality linen and bedding and an electric blanket for a cosy sleep. The bed in the lounge doubles as a day bed. A heat-pump ensures the temperature of the apartment can be set to your preference. Our own honey toasted muesli and a selection of teas, freshly ground coffee, milk etc is included at no charge. There is a large screen TV , high quality bluetooth sounds, free wifi and Netflix as well as books to read. No additional cleaning fee charged. Off road parking for your use.
    The tranquillity of the Whanganui River gives a real feeling of well-being. I frequently take my morning coffee sitting on a bench watching its moods, or the energetic young and not so young, who paddle it's waters for leisure or sport. Just a few minutes walk away are the cafes and restaurants of downtown Whanganui , their specialties and idiosyncrasies well known to locals who are happy to share their knowledge with visitors. There are a wealth of stories of our history and culture in our museum and art gallery, both have outstanding collections recognized nationally and internationally for their quality. Many local galleries are owned by curators of art specializing in glass, ceramics, or other media including the work of nationally well known artists. Or find a treasure in one of a myriad of interesting stores either in our downtown or suburban shopping areas.
  • Really nice spacious private flat with everything you would need and a lovely view overlooking the river. Handy off street parking. A few too many ornaments that we worried about breaking, especially the large crystal candlestick holders in the bedroom. Other than that everything was lovely. A comfortable bed.

    Carol2018-06-05T00:00:00Z

  • Annette's place had everything we needed and more! It was cosy and warm, we could have stayed inside for the two days we were there. The location was perfect, overlooking the river and an easy walk into town. We loved the style of the house and the special touches. We also loved the recycling options including for food waste too!! So great :) We will definitely stay again next time we are in Whanganui. Highly recommend this lovely home.

    Marianna2018-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Lights is a charming light-filled space with beautiful views of the river. Love the retro style (70S glam and artistic touches). We spent a relaxing four days here and really appreciated the well equipped kitchen. It’s an easy stroll to the best coffees in town at Article and Origins, also the market and gallery. Enjoyed walking along the ricer. Will hopefully stay here again.

    Trisha2018-04-02T00:00:00Z

  • Thank you so much Pete & Kathy, we had such a wonderful stay with you. We stayed 2 weeks and loved every minute. My wife and 2 kids (3yo & 12yo) also loved the experience, the kids getting involved with caring for the animals on the farm. (Feeding the chickens, collecting eggs, moving cows etc.!) They helped us plan our day trips, outings, recommendations on restaurants etc. We really felt like family during our stay, having some really nice evenings chatting over a glass of wine. We highly recommend staying with them if you are looking for a relaxing, friendly, homely home away from home. We will for sure be back Thank you Andy, Debbie, Alisha, Sidney :)

    Andy2018-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Kathy is a fantastic host - genuine and welcoming - putting us at ease straight away and welcoming us into the family!! Great place, fabulously grounds - loved by us and our daughter. Also close enough to whanganui to wipe in for dinner! Thanks very much - we will be passing on our recommendations ... :)

    Our 1920's revival home is a 10min drive from Bason Botanic Garden, Bushy Park Sanctuary, Kai Iwi beach, and city dining and nightlife. Awake refreshed in the comfy beds. Enjoy breakfast prepared for you with home made preserves, and take your coffee in the library or the country garden filled with birds, fresh vegetables and flowers. Come if you are a couple, solo traveller, or a group of 2-3. A King Single room is listed separately for the third guest.
    The 1920's weatherboard house has been faithfully restored and sits in a tranquil sheltered yard hedged in and filled with gardens of native, sub-tropical and exotic plants and trees. Surrounded by pastoral land home to poultry, sheep, horses and cattle you will enjoy the surroundings from the deck or hammock. Native Tui, Bell Bird and Wood Pigeon, feed in the giant tree lupins year round, while you watch from the dining room, enjoying your cooked breakfast.
    The rural area is very pleasant and offers nice walks or cycling past the old site of Westmere Railway Station to St Oswald's Anglican Church (2.7km) and back round Lillybank Road, or down Kaikokopu Road through steep ravines to Aromoho shops and the Brunswick Rd (4KM) and Mountain Bike Trails (7km). The Brunswick to Westmere walking trail and the Westmere Lake trail are ideal ways to enjoy the area. NOTE: Kaikokopu road has a steep return and is paved only 1/2 way but offers a stunning view of Mount Ruapehu. The Bushy Park Bird Sanctuary is 17km on paved roads, while a 12km further the Waitahinga offers a range of walking trails in native bush. From Highway 3 to and throughout the city bike lanes provide a safer journey and much of the city is on river flats so easy cycling.
  • Steve und Vicky waren tolle Gastgeber....Ich denke an den riesigen Garten, die liebe Katze, das Feuer, den Sternenhimmel und die tollen Tipps für die nähere Umgebung...Exzellent!

    Uschka2017-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Die Unterkunft war in Ordnung mit schönem Blick in den grünen Garten. Ich bin mir nicht so sicher, ob beide gern Gäste haben. Ich fühlte mich nicht so willkommen wie bei anderen Hosts und hatte etwas den Eindruck, es geht vor allem ums Geld verdienen. Dass man von den Gästen in deren Ferien erwartet, dass man gemeinsam mit den Hosts um Punkt 8 Uhr das Haus verlässt, finde ich auch seltsam. Nur mit zugedrückten Augen durfte ich länger bleiben.

    Sylvi2018-02-28T00:00:00Z

  • It was one of our best New Zealand Airbnb experiences so far. Steve and Vickie were very welcoming and we had truly enjoyed staying in their house. The house and garden are wonderful. We had great chat with our hosts and they were so many things we learned about staying in New Zealand. There was the real touch of hospitality when we learned that Steve made a research about typical polish breakfast and bought sausage and cheese especially for us. Just great!

    A lovely self contained one bedroom cottage set in our garden on a 12 acre lifestyle block in the Okoia Valley. We are a pleasant 10 minute drive east of Wanganui centre. Bacon & free range eggs are available for you to cook for breakfast or if you prefer there is a continental breakfast. 2nd bed is a single available on request.
  • Highly recommended. Exceptionally well equipped accommodation with every home comfort and many lovely little extras. Outdoor area is a real asset, private, quiet and a sun trap. Roz and Nick made us very welcome and were able to give us plenty of guidance for exploring the area. We would have no hesitation at all in returning to this little gem.

    Charlot2017-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect hosts - helpful, friendly and just plain nice. Perfect location - rural but a short drive to Whanganui. Modern, clean, warm, well-designed cottage with homely touches (flowers, divine biscuits etc). Generous breakfast provisions - great being able to cook your own when we wanted. The photos don't do this place justice. Thank you

    My home is situated upon Durie Hill, with panoramic 360 degree views out to the Ocean and surrounding farmland & the iconic Durie Hill Tower, I have a large section that has a Native Bush which attracts many beautiful native birds. My place is close to the city centre, art and culture and restaurants and dining are within walking distance. You’ll love my place because of the views, the location, the people, the outdoors space, and the ambiance. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers.
    The room on offer is comfortable with a Queen Bed, It is bright, warm and cosy, with a homely feeling, and lovely rural outlook.
    We live on Durie Hill, which has a Dairy & Fish & Chip shop on the Hill, it is easy access to the city walking, or the iconic Durie Hill Elevator is only $2each way
  • Schön gelegenes Haus auf einem Hügel, mit Meerblick. Trotz der ruhigen Lage kommt man recht gut in die Innenstadt via Treppe oder dem Fahrstuhl von 1919.

    Lina2018-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • Geniales Haus auf dem Durie Hill mit super Aussicht zum Sonnenuntergang über dem Meer. Supermarkt kann man zu Fuß erreichen, man muss allerdings die Treppen gehen oder den sehr coolen Aufzug in die Stadt nehmen. Das echo am Eingang des Tunnels unten ist ziemlich genial! Der Durie Hill Elevator ist auch einfach so einen Besuch wert. Jess und ihr Sohn sind super Gastgeber und immer für ein Schätzchen zu haben. Zum Strand ist es mit dem auto auch nur ein paar Minuten. Wir haben einen Tagesausflug zum fantham peak/symr Hut am Mt. Taranaki gemacht, das Ende war ein sehr steiles aschefeld, aber die Aussicht genial! Übernachtung auf der Hütte ist wegen sonnenauf- und Untergang bei klarem Wetter bestimmt auch geil!

  • We had an amasing stay at jess place, it was just fantastic! We arrived there after a long day (drive + tongariro alpine crossing). Jess house is really the place you have to go. It was just perfect. The place is clean quiet. You have everything you need. And we had time to chat with jess. She is is a nice person. Wish we could have stay more !! Thank you jess :)

    Ingrid2017-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Lovely, freshly refurbished 2 bedroom, sunny cottage with views of the mighty Whanganui River. Continental breakfast included.
    Situated across from the river and very close to the rowing finish line, the cottage is perfect for rowing participants and spectators. It is a lovely 3.9km walk into town and there is a bus stop within 50 metres. Our fantastic neighbourhood bar and eatery - Caroline’s Boatshed - is less than a 5 minute walk and there are three takeout options within a 10 minute walk. We have 3 bicycles and helmets for guest use. The cottage has a gorgeous new kitchen with a gas hob, electric oven (cooker) and microwave. There is a dishwasher and plenty of cooking and baking equipment. The cottage has a comfortable sofa bed in the lounge so can accommodate 6 if necessary. We have a portable cot for infants. Both bedrooms have queen sized beds with luxury linens and electric blankets for the winter months.
    Urban neighbourhood with the cottage commanding full views of the river from the bedrooms and living spaces. Watch the rowers training, water skiers and wake boarders, kayakers, jet boats and the paddle steamer Waimarie navigate the beautiful awa.
  • This place is a little gem and offers great value with beautiful decor and comfortable beds and kitchen facilities. Highly recommend it.

Sunny spots on both sides, large rooms, good lighting, quiet......the works. And to top it off, the hosts are lovely. Great spot to stay for a leisure or work stay in Whanganui.

  • Litza’s place was so cozy and made my friend and I feel at home - thoughtful touches were put throughout the lodge to make us feel like such. I would absolutely recommend her place!

    Emily2018-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • This lodge is even more beautiful than the pictures portray. So close to everything and you must try Litza's cakes that she sells at the Farmers market on a Saturday.

    Carolann2018-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Kokako Lodge is even better in real life than the photos. It's a very cute cabin with stylish furnishings and Litza left around lots of lovely touches (including delicious baking - which was a perfect afternoon tea for when we arrived). The beautiful fresh flowers in the lodge made my day. Located a quick drive from town. Highly recommend!!!

  • A beautiful lodge that instantly makes you feel relaxed - we didn’t want our weekend to end! Litza was great at communicating and obviously puts a great deal of thought into all the little extras in the lodge like cake and crumpets on arrival. The lodge is beautifully decorated and makes for a lovely romantic weekend away! Thanks for the stay - we look forward to coming back again in the future! :)

    Kristeena2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Look no further! Stay here! Its gorgeous with tasty homemade baking on arrival that is more than an afghan biscuit! We had our 19 month old staying and Litza had ready a gorgeous wooden Noah's Arc for our son to play with. Stylish, comfortable and unique.

    Two days is never enough in Whanganui! Come and share my home with me... you’ll love it because of it's modern, 'New York apartment' feel and it's in pristine condition. Warm, sunny & close to everything. Happy to share a wine or just as happy to let you relax by yourselves. Beautiful Kowhai Park is just across the road if you fancy a walk along the river. Off-street parking. Check-in/out times flexible. Free continental breakfast. “非常好的房子,大力推荐” Ji Quan "Very good house, highly recommended"
    This is a good sized room with a really comfortable queen sized bed. There is a TV in the room as well as the lounge and a small wall heater and electric blanket for heating. Feel free to make yourself at home and enjoy the lounge area or great deck area outside.
    We have a great selection of restaurants in Whanganui and I know most of them. The property is on a main road and for very light sleepers that might be a problem but most people will not be bothered by it. The museum and art gallery are close by in town. Kowhai Park is straight across the road. Don't miss the River Traders market every Saturday morning down by the city bridge. You really should do a Waimarie paddle steamer trip while you are here!
  • Central, clean, tidy and modern apartment, close to town. Steve is very welcoming, helpful and also understanding and happy to give you your own space.

Ich hatte zwei Zimmer zur Auswahl, beide liegen im ersten Stock zusammen mit einem großen Badezimmer. Das Ein- und Auschecken war total unkompliziert und die Gespräche unterhaltsam. Vielen Dank für das leckere Essen und die netten Unterhaltungen, ich komme gerne wieder.

    A Large open space. Clean and airy with ensuite shower and toilet. Permanently has a double bed, but if you are prepared to share with the children the sofa folds out to a double.

    Secure off street parking. Fenced section safe for children and animals. The back yard is shared with our free range chickens that provide eggs for breakfast.
    Lots to do in Whanganui. Most activities are reasonably priced and we are happy lend sporting equipment pushbikes etc to our guests.
  • Kevin ist ein supernetter und entspannter Gastgeber. Die Kinder und wir fühlten uns gleich gut auf- und angenommen. Man hat viel Platz, Kühlschrank im Zimmer und für Kaffee, Tee und Milch ist auch schon gesorgt. Kevin hat uns außerdem ein superleckeres Frühstück gemacht. Es liegt zentral aber schön ruhig, da haben wir tatsächlich immer viel zu lange geschlafen. Wir würden immer wieder kommen.

  • Cooked breakfast was amazing! Our kids loved the chickens. Great stay.

    Letitia2018-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • This house is tucked in behind the host's house in the garden with free roaming chickens (who you may find on your doorstep in the morning, something our children loved). The house itself happily accommodated our family of 4 and came supplied with tea and coffee along with a small refrigerator and a TV with Sky. There was also the added bonus of having a cooked breakfast each morning (if so desired) at no extra expense with eggs that you know are going to be fresh! Kevin, the host, was excellent, going above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, letting us use the amenities in the main house whenever we wanted and giving our children the chance to feed the chickens and collect eggs (something they loved to do). He even made a birthday cake for me upon realising I was having my birthday whilst there. Considering he was also working it just goes to show how kind and considerate a host he is. I would thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay as the town itself is also great and a fine base for day trips and a chance to explore the local area.

  • A peaceful retreat and only minutes from Whanganui. Lari has a beautiful home in a lovely rural setting. It was clean, comfortable and very cosy with lots of character and personal touches. We enjoyed our own private area of the house with a separate entrance and a lovely private deck but Lari and her family were there to assist if required. We were welcomed with a delicious Lemon Meringue Cheese cake on arrival, thank you Highly recommended, would love to stay here again.

    Anna2018-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • A very nicely decorated area off the main house which has a separate entrance. 2 big double bedrooms and a spacious communal area. Just on the edge of Whanganui, a short drive into town.

    This is the perfect Wanganui accommodation for a family or group holiday exploring Wanganui and New Zealand's North Island. Abercroft House is thirty minutes walk through the Kowhai Park from Wanganui Town Centre.
    This is one of Wanganui's finest holiday apartments including beautifully renovated interior features, polished floorboards and high ceilings. The apartment is part of the main house and is entirely self-contained.
    Abercroft house is a piece of rural New Zealand in the suburbs. Set on nearly an acre, the lawned and tree-lined property makes you feel like you are in the country.
  • Beautiful home very tidy and clean, nice antique type touches if your travelling to Wanganui I highly recommend this home.

  • Our kind host, Terry, greeted us on arrival. It's a charming apartment with lovely wood panelling and pretty lattice windows. Clean, comfortable and homely. There's a walking track nearby that leads up and along winding streets to the Water Tower on Bastia Hill. Stunning, panoramic views from there.

    Trisha2016-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful old character of a building from the 1800's, spacious and comfortable, the sort of character I enjoy. Very pleasant hosts. Would happily return.

    Evelyn2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for money with plenty of room. Accommodation is fully self contained separate part of the main house. Lots of charm with older style house and furniture in a nice quiet setting back from the street. Would be great for family or 2 couples travelling together. Terry was a friendly, helpful and replied promptly.

    Donna2017-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Restored, historical-feeling apartment. Clean, comfortable, scenic location by the river. Old but perfectly functional bathroom and kitchen.

  • Our experience was comfortable, quiet, and relaxed. We had everything we needed for our overnight stay and once again (we have been before), Beautiful flowers arranged so nicely and filling the house with a nice fragrance. We would definitely come again and recommend to others. I left an item behind by mistake and it was promptly returned with a smile. So much appreciated!

    You’ll love our quintessential retro bach because of it's private, sheltered outdoor area, and close proximity to the beach. A two minutes walk and you're at the waters edge. It's perfect for couples, solo adventurers, smaller families and pets.
    Mowhanau (Kai Iwi) beach really is a hidden gem. Beautiful west coast character, magnificent beach walks and great swimming spots. A dog's paradise. Our bach is a compact cutey, with everything you need to wind down and relax. It's an authentic, kiwi beach house, not high end but sparkling clean and cosy. The toilet is a quirky outdoor model, but just a step from the bathroom door and all under cover. This is a much loved bach which is used by the family when not booked out by guests. There will minimal owners possessions about, including some food. You are welcome to use the breakfast goods, condiments etc and any ingredients if you find yourself short.
    As we said, no shops or supermarkets but friendly locals. Over the summer months the camp ground (just across the road) sells bread, milk, newspaper etc. Fabulous beach walks and a magnificent children's playground, set alongside a safe freshwater stream. The surf life saving team are on duty over summer.
  • All the thoughtful provisions and creative touches around the bach made it a place you'd want to stay in for more than a wee while.

    Sharon2018-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for being a great host , our stay was fanatic and we are planning to go and stay again ! Couldn’t of asked for a better 2nights

    Jess2018-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great little kiwi bach...simple, charming and comfortable. Very friendly hosts, accommodating and generous. Perfect for a small family getaway!

    Lucy2018-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Viv for the use of your space. Was an awesome get away location and had more than what we needed for our short stay. What a beautiful spot!! Would not hesitate to come and stay again.

    Michael2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fabulous location, so close to the beach! Viv even put up a cute little Christmas tree to help bring in some Christmas cheer over the holidays. The dogs were a great welcoming committee and were friendly and loved to play. Check in was easy and it wasn't as far from town as we had thought we would be (10-15 minutes drive for a variety of supermarkets and other amenities and some closer cafes).

    Maria2017-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very lovely batch. Nice outside terrace at the front and at the back. Dinnertables at botch sides and at the back a nice couch to look at the fire you can make there. It is really close to the beach and playground, witch was a big bonus for our little girls. As well as the little table for the kids and the toys & movies. Definitely would stay here again!

    Maarten2018-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, quiet location and a house with everything you could need. Highly recommend this spot and am looking forward to my next visit there!

  • We had a lovely stay at Juliet’s. Such nice accommodation and in a great location. Fabulous breakfast left for us too!

  • My friend, International Marketing authority Drayton Bird, for whom I made this booking, thoroughly enjoyed his stay at Juliet's place. He found Juliet an excellent host, loved the room and spaciousness which he commented was of a very high standard. Juliet's home backs onto the beautiful Virginia Lake. Were Drayton to visit New Zealand again I'm sure he'd like to revisit Juliet's home. Coincidentally, both Drayton and Juliet came from the same area of the UK – just a few miles apart.

    Henry2017-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Juliet's suite is extraordinary, very clean, comfortable and elegant. The seperate terrace is a nice place for relaxing. Juliet is a very generous, friendly and helpful host. We enjoyed the familiar and funny talks with her. We highly recommend Juliet's accommodation. Sigrid and Heiner, Germany, April 2018

    Room at rear of historic coach house, set in beautiful gardens, with direct access through french doors.
    Turakina is an old village by New Zealand standards, being settled from 1850 by Scottish Highland settlers following government purchase of large tracts of land in land from Rangitikei iwi Ngati Apa. Our home, The Coach House is its oldest surviving building, having been built in 1857 as an accommodation house with attached livery stables for stage coaches travelling from Wellington to Wanganui - along the beach from Paekakariki to Turakina.
  • very good

  • Lisa and Andy are lovely people and their home is gorgeous! Hospitality is definitely a gift they both possess. I felt like I was staying with my own family. Lisa had tea and treats prepared for me when I arrived—so sweet! I felt like I was staying with my own family.

    Stacy2018-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Andy and Lisa are wonderful hosts! They showed us around the house as well as the garden/farm in the front of our room~ it was very comfortable and we even had pastries made by Lisa :) All in all, a perfect stay on SH 3!

    Lena2018-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • I think our short stay at the Coach House was suprising to both parties, since we booked the room just the same day of our stay. Moreover we were Lisas and Andys first Airbnb-guest :D The welcome was so heartwarming, as both of them and their sweet little dog Honey, came out to collect us from the carpark. We spent a wonderful evening together chatting. Lisa and Andy are very lovely hosts to stay with who will treat you as part of the family if you wish so or give you room, if you would rather relax from your travels. Speaking about rooms, one should not forget the accommodation itself. Our private room was lovely, as they provided water, a heater and electric blankets. Moreover it was decorated with flowers and cookies (first-guest-special :))! The house is very characteristic, as it views back on a historical background, which makes it quite cozy and different from the usual New Zealand houses. We would definitly stay again!

    Absolut traumhafte Unterkunft für Liebhaber der 'goldenen 60er'. Die gesamte Einrichtung und der Wohn-Stil ist original aus dieser Zeit. Fühlte mich in meine frühe Kindheit zurückversetzt. :) Wir hatten das ganze Haus für uns allein, ein wirklich tolles Erlebnis.

    I really liked staying here. It was almost like a hotel, but not. Everything was clean and tip top. The location was very nice, with a good view of the city. I liked also that there was a place to do cooking and we made our own breakfast. Viv was very friendly and helpful and caring. Thank you.

    This farm is amazing. Not only is it close to the town but it's succluded so you feel away from everything. We had our own room seperate from the house so we did not feel in the way. We felt welcomed and right at home from the minute we got there. Kathy was a great host informative and friendly. We wondered the gardens fed the lambs. Went on hikes. It was a perfect escape from Wellington city. I would definitely love to stay here again.
