We stayed two nights and Margaret and Paul made us most welcome. The room was very clean and comfortable with stunning ocean views. Our hosts were a mine of information on what to see and do in New Plymouth and the surrounding area (Mt Taranaki NP, the parks, gardens and art galleries in particular) and the whole experience made us...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Margaret and Paul could not have been more welcoming or helpful, from tourist advice to flying the UK and Welsh flags outside the house! Breakfast was fantastic, we certainly didn't go hungry. The room had beautiful views as did the lounge and balcony.

We had such a wonderful stay at Abode on Rimu! The room was so beautiful and clean. We had our own bathroom, sitting room, and balcony with views of the ocean. Even some snacks and coffee waiting for us when we arrived. Our hosts were so friendly and shared so much of New Plymouth with us. Thank you so much...

This was a fantastic place to stay. Room was beautiful and the guests had their own sitting room looking over the bay. Margaret and Paul were the perfect hosts; very hospital and informative about where to eat and what to see. Could not fault the experience.
