Overview

About the property

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

'Monday' is a historic seaside cottage that was designed by the early architect to maximize the benefits of holidaying beside the sea while having access to Wanganui city. It is the first of six adjacent beach cottages, all named after the days of the week. The first five cottages have similar construction and quirky features

It is located at Castlecliff beach, which is about a 10 minute drive from the city centre. The cottage is in close proximity to the beach, the reserve, the children's playground, basketball court, skateboard park,community BBQs, dairy and camping ground. It is in a popular area for recreational activities yet the cottage offers privacy and unique ambiance. It has a secluded courtyard behind the cottage, secure parking and is fully fenced.

The Wanganui area is historically significant as an entry point for early settlers and visitors to the country in the mid - late 1800's as it had a port and the navigable river enabled access to the interior of the North island. It was one of the wealthiest areas in early New Zealand and this is reflected in the abundant early architecture of the city.

The city centre has retained its artdeco architecture and artistic influence and is very well presented and cared for. It is well served by great cafes and restaurants.The river frontage has a delightful leisure area with a reserve, walkway, historic buildings, tram line and original steam boats running excursions. The area buzzes with activity, especially during the Saturday market and festival times.

Local attractions in the area include exploring the Wanganui river or the Taranaki coastline, driving up the Para Para road to the Volcanic plateau (the ski fields on Ruapehu are about a 1 hr 30 minute drive up the Para Para road) or simply enjoying the creative ambiance of this art orientated city.

'Monday' is being lovingly restored to it's 'Arts and Crafts' style. Your stay here would help us to restore the cottage and grounds to near original condition.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$35.00 per stay); Linen (included);

Wonderful old historic bach which has been given a true to character make over. Excellent location opposite reserve and beach. Being fully fenced was a real bonus.

Absolutely amazing! One of the nicest cottages I've stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing! One of the nicest cottages I've stayed in. Most definitely one of Wanganui's hidden treasures.

Ted my little four legged friend enjoyed the lay out, and of course a real west-coast beach just over the road. Great period setting, and the owners were very helpful and great to deal with. Looking forward to my next stay at Monday :)
