Originally we had booked for three nights with us arriving very early on the first day, however we ended up staying two nights arriving very late on our first day. We booked this lower level section of a two level house via Airbnb and the hosts were helpful before and during our trip.
We had our own private entrance to our space however there was a bit of noise from the upper level area, guests walking and talking and the water pipes. Very clean, newly renovated space with three good sized bedrooms. Beds were all very comfortable with nice linen and towels provided.Very nice bathroom with big shower, good water pressure and water temperature control. Was a new listing at the time and the kitchen could do with a few more pieces of cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils.Washing machine and dryer available with washing liquid and fabric softener. Wi-Fi was really good.
There wasn’t much close by, a medical centre/pharmacy across the road and ‘the convenience store one minute away’ noted in the listing when we booked was a shop full of junk and looked like it had been closed for quite awhile.

If you don’t have your own transport we found it hard flag down taxis so ensure you book one online well before you need it (waited on hold on a phone call for 15 mins without speaking to anyone) – the local taxi company is Bonny’s Taxi. There was no Uber or Lyft in this area when we stayed. There is a bus stop 200m from the property as well.
Price = $78.19 NZD per night (included Airbnb service fees)
