Comfortable sunny place with HRV for ventilation and heat pump for heating or cooling. Private deck, BBQ, tidy gardens and a nice quiet neighbourhood.

The space

Light double room with queen bed in clean tidy condition. Shared, bathroom (shower and bath with separate toilet). The house has four bedrooms in all (one for guests, one where we have a friend staying) - we also have Chris's children (3 & 6) stay with us every other weekend. So if you like your sleep ins, you might have to check with us about whether the kids are here or not!

Our dining space and outdoor spaces are the social areas. No TV in our living area, it's more of an office space! We're too busy and like each other too much to be bothered with a telly, but will swing a monitor around for a video for a lazy evening if needed!

Guest access

Full access to shared spaces. For longer stays you can use the washing machine, kitchen and kitchenware.

If you wish to do some work whilst you are here and want to use a desk, we can make a space for you also.

Interaction with guests

I work during the day and Chris has his own business and he is usually around and about during the day. Between us we will be happy to host you and engage with you as much or as little interaction as required!

Other things to note

We have 2 rooms listed, so you may be sharing with other guests/travellers.

Basic breakfast is included and consists of cereal, tea and coffee. We are often cooking eggs on toast and can come to an arrangement if this is your preference too, and you are up as early as us!

If the sun is shining there will be a bbq at dinner time - it is how Chris rolls, alternatively if you want to join us for meals, let us know in advance and we are happy to include you for $10 per person (or a bottle of wine!).

We are keen cyclists and may be off on trips over a weekend, so you may have more space than anticipated! Depending on our plans, you would be welcome to join us for a ride, we often pop over to Rotorua for the day.

PS - we have a holiday home set up in Rotorua, if you are heading that way we can help with your accommodation there too, talk to us for a discount...

Dara and Chris were amazing hosts, very friendly and easy going and were so helpful showing us bits to do in the local area. As our travel plans changed during our trip they were also really accommodating with us changing the check out date. Really comfortable room and great hosts we could have a chat and a laugh with, would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Hamilton!

We really liked to stay at Dara and Chris Place. It was an amazing stay. We had such a nice time together. They are very nice and lovely people. And the house, the room and the bathroom are amazing. Everything was very clean. We recomend to stay there to everyone. We think it's not possible to find a better place

Dara & Chris

We love adventure and people, we are fairly well travelled, but there is always more! We are looking forward to hosting and being hosted also. We love bicycles and the outdoors, he is a keen mountain biker, she is an old school roller skater. She gets on a mountain bike and he gets on a skateboard so we can share our passions. Our goal is to travel the world by bike... until then we are both self employed and will be settled for the next couple of years, come share your adventures and let us live vicariously through you!
