Our home

Our home has four bedrooms, two ensuite; family room, sitting room, dining room and a good sized kitchen with a small breakfast bar. Ranch sliders give access to the back section where there is a swimming pool which is heated, a trampoline and plenty of garden space and privacy. Downstairs we have a small gym with a treadmill, exercise bike and a'total gym' exercise machine. There is a gardener to mow the lawns and a cleaner who cleans through on a Friday. We love our home because have an attractive rural outlook and absolute privacy while being very close to the town centre.

Property features

Who we are

  1. My name is Miranda and my husband is Richard. We are a professional couple with two teenagers left at home (Bryony 17 and Max 16). We moved to New Zealand from Britain 8 years ago and love our life here. Richard is General Manager of a group of radio stations and I am an auctioneer and real estate consultant. Bryony will attend the National Singing School from 3 - 12 Jan 07 and so we are looking for a two week holiday before the children return to school around the 8th Feb. Max would not enjoy a holiday without surf and so we hope to find a home near a surf beach. We would be happy to lend a vehicle for the duration of your stay and anything else we have you would be welcome to use! We are animal friendly and don't mind caring for yours. We would like to be able to leave our two middle aged dogs at home if possible. They sleep outside and are very placid and friendly. If that's a problem, they can go to kennels. We also have a cat.

Your neighbourhood

We are located on the city boundary which is a few minutes drive to the centre of New Plymouth and the beach. We have wonderful black sand beaches with excellent surf, an extended walkway along the seafront,(we have bikes available if you want to pedal it) parks and a good selection of galleries, a museum, cafes and beaches. There are a number of good golf course, Ngamotu being ranked as the 5th top course in New Zealand. Our home is semi-rural with 10 acres of land around it. We are close to Mount Taranaki which makes for good tramping in the summer.
