If you intend visiting Gisborne when in New Zealand then I highly recommend La Frontiere, a luxurious modern self-contained studio, set on an avocado orchard and farmland, and is about 5 mins drive to Gisborne city centre. This was one accommodation which we were very lucky to get at the last minute.
We booked the accommodation via the AirBnB mobile app, our last resort as all hotels and motels in the area were booked up on the day of our visit, due to a Maori event.
Jennifer was the most wonderful host. On arrival we got a tour of the villa which was decorated superbly and had wonderful colours and quality furnishings make this villa compete with 5 star hotels when it comes to comfort and making you feel at home.
The villa has an excellently fitted and provisioned kitchen which ideal for whipping up some dinner of your own. The bathroom is very nice with a power-shower. The villa also comes with a private spa hot tub and swimming pool.There is fast and free Wifi, radio and a wonderful smart TV also available.
The bed is very comfortable and it’s very easy to oversleep and miss your check-out time. La Frontiere is like a home away from home.
We had a wonderful time and would certainly return. It was great to also make the acquaintance of the dogs and cats on site – it is such a relaxing place to stay. Thanks again to Jennifer for her hospitality. We look forward to returning if we are lucky enough to get back to New Zealand again.
