Come and stay in our light filled apartment with wide views out to the Tasman Sea. Great for families or groups of friends. Conveniently located, minutes walk from New Plymouth's CBD, famous coastal walkway, Govett Brewster Art Gallery, Len Lye Gallery, Puke Ariki Museum, public library, cafes and shopping. Comfortably furnished, this is the place to be if you want to experience New Plymouth. We have many positive reviews.
The apartment is really light and airy with great views of the ocean. It's on the second floor of the apartment building ( note - no elevator- stairs only ) and is the north west corner site so loads of light and sun. It has one main bedroom and two king singles which are both in the sun rooms. It has everything you need with a full kitchen for cooking and we have installed a brand new gas stove and a new washing machine.
We have quality linen and towels for your use. There is a flat screen smart television with freeview to see NZ entertainment channels and news and there is an Apple TV to use with your own Apple login. There is a Sony bluetooth radio/ speaker to stream music and with a connection for Apple devices. The apartment is approx 90sqm so it's bigger than the other apartments in the same block.
We have installed new blinds and black out curtains. We have updated the decor from the photos you see so it's more homely. The apartment is on a main road to Port Taranaki so there is some road noise when there is a ship in port. If you are light sleepers we supply some ear plugs and using these you should be fine. There is an airconditioning unit there for warm nights so you can keep the windows closed and use this to cool the apartment.
You have access to the entire apartment to enjoy all facilities. We have an electronic key pad lock on the front door and we will issue you with a unique number prior to your arrival via SMS text message or email. Inside the apartment you will find an electronic access fob for the carpark security gate. Please leave the fob on the dining table when you leave. We will send you directions for how to get into the building and which carpark is ours. Please send your email address and mobile number prior to arrival so we can send this to you. Many thanks.
Interaction with guests
We will be doing all the interaction by mobile phone and email. We will send key and entry instructions once you have booked. We don't live in New Plymouth on the weekends - the apartment is used three days a week as one of us works there and travels home on Thursday. Hence the apartment is free every week Thursday afternoon - Monday morning. Directly upstairs is Sharon who can help you if you need it but most people are fine and don't need any help. There are some tourist brochures in the apartment to help with orientation around New Plymouth and there is a house manual to help. You can call one of us at anytime and we are always happy to give advice on any query you may have.
Other things to note
The apartment is on the second floor of the apartment building and the only access is via stairs - no elevator so not suitable for disabled access I'm afraid - it's a legacy of the era it was built - 1924
This is an apartment so please be considerate to those around you so no loud music after 10pm.
