Favourable Factors:

  • Away from Plymouth but peaceful location
  • Pretty house with a view
  • Laundry with the help of our host

Unfavourable Factors:

  • After parking (outside the house), you might have to drag your luggages up a stairs to reach your room. But we solve it by pre-packed our stuff in our hand-carry every few days so no dragging of luggages! πŸ™‚


AirWe booked the airbnb with a label as The Castle (in Lower Hutt), to find out its designed by a well-known New Zealand architect Ian Athfield. P.S. Ian Athfield is really famous with his work especially – Wellington Central Library, Jade Stadium in Christchurch, and even Bangkok rapid transport system.
