My cottage is superbly located a two minute walk to the world heritage Tongariro National Park with bush walks and mountain hikes; mountain bike access trails, and the nightlife area of the Junction. Furnished with items found on my world travels, my home is rustic and quirky; and is kept super clean and tidy. I have been hosting guests for years, and love to meet up with other travellers and adventurers. Chakra is the Sanskrit word for circle or cycle.
The house is a simple cottage, set in a pretty garden with a nice area to sit in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine at the end of a day of adventure. The bedroom is airy and the bed super-comfortable; and can be shut off from the rest of the house, making it extra private. I like nice linen, and the bed is also made up with down pillows and duvet covers making it feel luxurious! The whole house has a relaxed vibe to it, and decorated with art I have collected in my travels. Please note, that the use of laundry facilities is not included in the tariff, but there is a commercial laundromat in the town. WiFi internet is included.
Over the Winter season ( June - October ) I have a lovely couple of Argentinians living in the house with me. All three of us have jobs, and will be coming and going. The use of the kitchen over these months is not offered in respect to my full time lodgers. Breakfast is offered and tea/coffee making at any time however! The house is a 2 minute walk to a lovely cafe; and the Junction night life area with a selection of bars and restaurants for dinner. Join us in the lounge area if you want to watch some TV; or enjoy a glass of wine!
I like to give my guests privacy and so am low-key unless you want to interact! Otherwise, I am quite social, and like to share a glass of wine, or a coffee with my visitors! Iam a qualified yoga teacher and if you want to share the practice with me, well that can be negotiated too!
In the Summer time, there is no wi-fi access at the house, though you can get a connection through Zenbu. Also, our local library has free internet. The house is a 5 minute walk from the train station; and about a 20 minute pleasant walk from the village center, where the buses pick up and drop off. Where possible I will come pick you up!
