Our home

Our large modern beachfront home is a joy to live in. It feels like we are on holiday everyday. There are four large bedrooms, with two living areas, as well as a home theatre room. The large modern kitchen is great for when we cook and entertain for friends. There are lots of warm sunny spots to relax with a wine - on the decks, in the garden, in the spa pool - and all have the great outlook to the beach.

We have a cleaner that can continue coming if required. Our friendly cat, who spends most of her time outside, and three turtles who live in an outside pond with some goldfish, would love to be looked after by you, but can be cared for else where if necessary.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four: Gerard is a roofing company manager, Jenny is an accountant, Olivia is 12 and Sophia is 10. We all love to travel so are planning on taking four months off work (and school) from April to August 2011, to spend time in France. We have travelled extensively before, having been to Europe, Asia, America, Australia, and the pacific islands. We love outdoor activities, sports (playing and watching), food and shopping.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is 10km to the centre of New Plymouth. Our neighbours (including Jenny's parents) are friendly and helpful and would love to welcome you. We are in walking distance to a small shopping centre including supermarket. New Plymouth is a modern urban coastal city of around 60,000 people. The surrounding area includes mountains, spectacular gardens, native bush, surf coast, and many golf courses. It's an ideal place to visit for fishermen, sailors, surfers, hikers, skiiers, gardners, golfers, and mountain climbers. New Plymouth has a temperate climate year round, with temperatures averaging 14 degrees celcius in winter to 22 degrees in summer.

New Plymouth has a world class museum - PukeAriki, and modern art gallery featuring the works of Len Lye. There are many great restuarants and cultural events. In recent years we have had concerts by Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Cliff Richards and Jack Johnson. For more information on what to see and do visit

New Plymouth is easily accessible to Auckland and Wellington (with a 40 minute flight), and within a few hours drive to most of New Zealands tourist attractions.
