The beautifully renovated 1911 concrete and rimu historic villa, Normandell House, was built for a Yorkshire clockmaker, Christopher Burton. Downstairs are verandahs on three sides, 3 double garden-facing bedrooms with substantial desks (Kupe, Mason, and Burton Rooms), 2 bathrooms, kitchen, and a dining/sitting room. The smaller Saiko Room, with open fire, provides an additional work-space.
And upstairs: an extensive Loft area comprises a separate sleeping area and an open space flanked by an impressive library.
Free Wifi is available in all rooms.
