My son and I had a wonderful time exploring New Zealand. I do have to say the Tivoli Homestay was very memorable. The home was beautiful, great views, very welcoming and I would have loved to stay longer.

New Plymouth is an under advertised city in NZ tourist guides but I can assure you that after leaving your hosts at Tivoli Homestay, you will be convinced that there is a lot more to do than what you thought and certainly that you should have stayed a bit longer. It is difficult to say what we liked most between...

Thank you so very much for your very kind words regarding New Plymouth and our homestay. So glad you appreciated us as your hosts, the architecture, views, decoration, room and breakfast. It certainly makes running a homestay worthwhile when you learn that you made a positive difference in other peoples' experiences. Always welcome!

Homesteads simply do not get any better, everything from cleanliness, food, hosts etc. etc. etc. Were there for the 3 busy days of Womad but will be staying again, and for a little longer to enjoy the company of Jan and Andre.

Excellent hosts (fantastic breakfasts) in an architecturally inspiring house. Andre and Jan are very attentive and enjoy making you feel at home in their home. Happy to recommend their place as a great base for a day, a weekend or longer in Taranaki.

This is such a special place! The house (designed by Roger Walker no less) is a treat to explore with gorgeous gardens and tropical birds.
