Small but pleasant room in our Ngaio home.

We’re a friendly couple, but you can keep to yourself as much as you like. We have 2 (well behaved and lovely) kids here half the time.

On or off street parking available.

5 min walk to train station (approx 15 min on train to CBD).
8 / 10 mins drive to the Interislander / Bluebridge ferry terminals.

The space
King single bed in bedroom.

The rumpus room is shared if we have a guest in our other room, otherwise you can use it almost exclusively (we may only need to walk through if we need the laundry). The rumpus room has a desk, a TV with Chromecast, and tea and coffee facilities.

Bathrooms are shared.

You’re welcome to use the kitchen, dining room, our lounge room, laundry, and the garden. All of these are shared spaces.

Breakfast included (make yourself). Options: cereal, toast, fruit, juice, yoghurt, fresh eggs from our chickens (organic & free range), tea & coffee (*espresso, plunger or instant). *Please don't use the espresso machine unless you know how - we are happy to make you one if you don't :)

For stays of more than 1 week, we are happy to clean the room and wash sheets and towels once a week. Or you can do this yourself if you prefer - but if you opt to do this yourself, please do this at least once a week to keep the room tidy and linen in good condition.

Late check in / bag drop:
Our check in window is from 3pm-11pm.
We're happy to accommodate early (if we can) or late check in, or bag drop before check in, by arrangement.
UNARRANGED late check ins will incur a $50 fee. This won't apply if your travel has been delayed and you've communicated with us about this, and kept us adequately updated on any further delays. Many guests arrive by ferry, and if they've told us which ferry they're on we can see online if it's delayed, and that is absolutely no problem. We won't be unreasonable about the late check in fee - it's not aimed at a delayed ferry we know you're on, other unexpected delays you let us know about. It will only be applied on those (thankfully) rare occasions when communication is lacking/poor and we're left waiting up half the night or going to bed and having get up at some ungodly hour.

Short walk (1 minute) to Ngaio village, which has a few shops, a cafe, and a couple of takeaway places (Indian, and fish and chips / Chinese).

Approximately 15 min walk to Countdown supermarket (Crofton Downs) in one direction, or 20 mins to New World supermarket (Khandallah) in the other direction.
Khandallah village also has a couple of cafes, a pub, two fish and chip / Chinese takeaway shops, Hell pizza, Domino's pizza, and a few other shops.

About 10-15 walk to the Simla Crescent start of the Mt Kaukau Summit Hike. It's a lovely hike - If you have the time and are at least moderately fit, we recommend it!
