Nadia - - ADVENTURE -

This mini Manawatu abode gives new mean­ing to the phrase ‘small­town liv­ing’. Own­ers Keith and Jen Love­lock re­stored the 1880s pump house and fit­ted it with a loft bed, kitch­enette, bath­room, pot­belly fire and a vin­tage Eric­s­son tele­phone so you can call your hosts if need be. While it’s not off the grid, there’s no wifi and very lit­tle cell re­cep­tion, so “you still have to switch back a cen­tury” dur­ing your stay, says Keith. For some­thing to­tally dif­fer­ent, there’s also a cute yel­low sub­ma­rine to stay in on the prop­erty, clev­erly re­stored by Keith from “old junk”.
