Gorgeous vintage villa
A beautiful home with a small brisk walk past the river into town. Enough room to sleep all and adequate space to prepare a meal and eat ! Terry and Karen were amazing hosts and weren’t shy to our taste of music either :) 10 out of 10 recommend staying here if you ever find yourself and your whanau in Whanganui. Not to mention their cat was lovely.
