“Home away from home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

I had the pleasure of spending one week with Brad & Fujiko in February of 2012.
It truely felt like a home away from home.

Thank you for the very warm hospitality, excellent facilities and Japanese cooking lessons :)
I will definitely be back again next year !

As a first timer for B&B this was an absolute treat and has sold me on the idea. I was a little nervous about staying in someone else's home, but no more fears. Brad and Fujiko were so hospitable and gracious. Brad went the extra mile by moving my car and bringing our luggage from the car (it was raining lightly). The room was lovely and comfortable and shared facilities excellent. I was travelling with my 80 year old mother and we were both made to feel very welcome. We had dinner on our first night and the relaxed atmopshere was great and it was lovely to talk to other guests. In a hotel you are on your own but here you are made to feel very much a part of the family. I would highly recommend this stay to anyone. They have exactly the right mix of everything, awesome place, highly recommend. Wendy

My wife and i were unfortunately only spending 1 night in New Plymouth, but so glad we found this place. Brad and Fujiko couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly hosts. The room was spotless, comfortable, as were all the facilities. Breakfast included probably the best scrambled eggs I've ever eaten!

Although the b&b isn't right in the city centre, it's only a couple of minutes easy drive away - will definitely stay here from now on when visiting New Plymouth.

Stayed with Brad and Fujiko mid January 2012. We had a great stay, the welcome couldn't have been better, they are really nice people and you felt as if you were in your home, not just a B & B. I would recommend their home to anyone staying in the New Plymouth area, and would
certainly re-visit.

I stayed in the little kids room :) at the back of the house and it was just what I needed. Best of all was the company of Brad and Fujiko and their efforts to make my time there so much more enjoyable.

Reminded me why I dislike hotels so much when you can have a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere to hang out in with all the facilities and more you would get at a hotel (so long as you are comfortable using a shared toilet / bath in hallway).

Service even went as far a Brad taking the time to show me the local surf breaks and Fujiko providing a delicious meal without a second thought despite not giving any notice. I even got to have some Kimchi (한국분이시면 김치 뭔지 잘 아실거죠..^^)

Also made use of the massage chair which I have long been sceptical about - I am no longer sceptical....

Anyway I would certainly look them up for when I am next in town and recommend it for anyone who wants to relax and the place you stay at.

Lovely and intimate bed & breakfast very close to the central city. Brad and Fujiko are the most wonderful hosts - warm, welcoming, and full of enthusiasm for the local area. Staying here was just like visiting with friends. We felt right at home! Very affordable, immaculately clean, and extremely comfortable place to stay. The breakfasts were lovely and the three course Japanese meal prepared by Fujiko was delicious. HIghly recommended!!

This was such a pleasant place for us to stay on our short trip to New Plymouth. The hosts are very accommodating. The rooms were clean, warm and comfortable. Breakfast was really yum, with lot's of options (go the scrambled eggs with avo). Thanks
