    Had a great stay with Violet and Paul. Very welcoming and helped us settle into New Zealand on our first few days here! Paul helped us out in finding a van to travel around in. Really couldn’t have asked for anything more from them, would recommend a stay here! Thanks Violet and Paul!

    Violet and Paul were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble, and they looked after us very well. The rooms were clean and tidy, as we would expect, comfortable beds, and access to the kitchen any time we wanted a cup of tea/coffee.
    I wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again; thanks Violet and Paul, it was a pleasure meeting and being with you both

    How to begin... Violet and Paul are Angels. The first people we met in NZ, and nobody could dream more than meeting them. Violet is for sure our NZ mother, always caring, making sure we are fine, always worried about the cleanliness of the house, cooking when possible, and it is such a pleasure talking with her ! Just the fact of hearing her laugh makes your day ! And Paul... a teddy bear. So generous, patient, funny, and smart ! He drove us everywhere during 2 days, helping us to find the best van for our Road Trip, willing us to take the right decision and making sure we are happy about it.
    Actually there are so many things to say about this lovely house and hosts, we could write a book about it.
    Simply, our stay has been unexpectedly incredible, we cannot thank enough Violet and Paul for who they are and what they do. The beginning of our NZ journey is memorable , thank you from our deep heart.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
