Koromiko Homestay


Stay in an 'architectural curiosity' - with stunning harbour views, wifi and central heating.

The house is multilevel and faces north. It has 'all day sun', three decks and a lawn for private sunbathing, drinks etc. - and two 'outdoor baths'. We have two double guest rooms with queen sized beds.

A 30 minute pleasant downhill walk or a short $15 taxi ride takes you to the city centre. Note that taxi fares to the airport and railway/bus station are approx. $40 and $20 respectively, but try Uber it's likely to be cheaper.

For us a 'homestay' is not the same as a Guesthouse or B&B. As our guest you are welcomed as part of our extended 'family' - like having friends to stay.

Our local knowledge will enhance your holiday in New Zealand. We can help you find activities and attractions, recommend restaurants and much more.

Caution: We live on a steep hillside - the top level of the house is 100 steps uphill from the street below. The only parking is on the street. If you have personal mobility problems, require secure covered parking, or dislike driving on narrow roads (15kph speed limit), you may wish to seek alternative accommodation.

Visitor Reviews

We stayed here a couple of nights in 2009 and it was a grand experience taking a bath in the garden with a view to kill. Also stayed in the sky room overlooking the city. Def. a place to return back to, maybe in 2019.
