We got to stay in a lovely home in Palmerston North, a great midpoint stopover if you’re travelling between Wellington and Auckland. The home is located in a charming quiet neighborhood, but within 10 minutes walk to the central business district. Our host, an ex-pat New Yorker, was very helpful in pointing out the interesting sights within and near town, and knew New Zealand very well. He gave us valuable tips on how best to continue with our tour of New Zealand. We occupied two beautifully appointed rooms next to the clean guest bathroom. We had access to wi-fi and the use of of the living room as well.
We greatly enjoyed our breakfasts in the lovely backyard garden. We loved the house so much, we ended up staying two nights instead of one.
