Retired farmers John and Rosemary may sit you down with a cup of tea and make you feel welcome when you arrive at their restored Victorian villa just 15 minutes from the city. The house is in lovely gardens with great views of Mt. Taranaki, the serene countryside, and the sea. There are three spacious queen-size en suite bedrooms; an elegant, wood-paneled guest lounge with Sky TV and open fire in winter; a dining room; and a sunny conservatory. A magnificent breakfast
is included, and dinner can be arranged. Old-world charm still comes with mod cons like free Wi-Fi and a GPS to direct you to town.
