Smoking is NOT allowed inside. However you are welcome to smoke outside and use ashtrays provided. Please check out photos of sloping driveway on listing indicating driveway access. Like most of Timaru's accommodation, BLUE PENGUIN VILLA is situated on the busy Evans Street, so please be aware that there is traffic noise at times. There's a lot happening in Timaru over the summer - and you are very close to everything that you can literally walk to from the home. Here's a few things you might like to look at: DINING OUT: If you are looking for somewhere nice to eat... there are FastFood restaurants ( Mac's Fish & Chips, KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Chinese) and supermarket just a short walk 300 meters to your right, or if you would like something a bit more upmarket.. on a warm evening you can cross the road, walk over the park toward the seaside, and hook onto a walking track that takes you over to Caroline Bay, if you walk up the Piazza steps ( the big stairway linking the bay to the shopping centre... there are a 3 or 4 lovely restaurants with outdoor seating and sea views... a very pleasant experience. WALKWAYS: As mentioned above very pleasant to cross the road and walk through Ashbury Park to Caroline Bay. In addition there is a fantastic cliff loop walk on the Waimataitai hill. So again cross the road - head up to Climie Terrace at the end of this road you will hop onto the walkway which takes you along the cliffs, past a gorgeous little swimming bay and loops back to the hill. Well worth the outing, or even swim!

A fantastic house - had everything we needed. Lovely and warm and so close to our activities in Timaru. Thanks Kay for a wonderful stay :-)
This house is beautifully clean and well presented, with some lovely small touches. Beds are comfy, the house is warm, especially with the log burner and there is a great selection of movies too. The location was extremely handy to eateries and we took a stroll across the park over the road. If we had more time we would have wandered to Caroline Bay. The road is a busy one but we had a very comfortable one night stay, thank you.
