It's a short stroll through the sand dunes to the beach where you can swim, surf, fish or walk for miles and explore the fossil cliffs further up the beach. Also nearby there's a children's playground, skate park, a patrolled swimming beach, cafe, golf course and grocery stores. Whanganui's picturesque heritage town centre is a 10 minute drive with lively artist studios and Saturday market. A 1 to 1.5 hour drive will get you on to the Turoa Skifield or to some of New Zealand's best surf breaks.

We appreciated the warm welcome that we received from Roger and Susan. Roger met us when we arrived, and Susan called in to see us later. Susan had put a lovely flower arrangement on the table, a bottle of milk in the fridge and home-made meusli in the cupboard. They also said that they were happy for us to eat the zucchinis growing in the garden. It was a comfortable house with everything we needed. We enjoyed looking at the sunsets out the lounge window, having meals on the deck under the umbrella, watching the monarch butterflies on the swan plants and catching up with Noel, the neighbourhood cat. We had a couple of walks to the beach, and it was a handy base for day trips.

We really enjoyed our time in this lovely charming seaside abode, with everything you need for a winter retreat to explore revitalising Whanganui. Great location in a vibrant artistic part of Castlecliff, we loved the local village and the Citadel restaurant. Susan was a fantastic host, warm and welcoming, lovely homemade touches - muesli and a cheese platter.
Response from Owner
Thanks so much for your comments Jennifer and Cathal. You were wonderful guests to have stay at Sunset. And thank you for taking such great care. We'd love to have you come again! Nga mihi Susan
We felt welcome and at home in this lovely sparkling clean house. There were fresh flowers on the table, good linen on the beds, generous cooking facilities, comfortable setting in the dining and living areas. We appreciated that the bathroom has a shower as well as a bath. The sunny back deck overlooked an attractive garden, and the house was within walking distance to the beach. We will definitely good back.
Response from Owner
It was a pleasure to have you both stay and so nice to hear your feedback. Thanks very much for the care you took of our house.
