There is hardly any space around you, but maybe the classification of villa has changed?
You do not have bungalows in NZ.That is a villa

Yes, I do remember that the term New Zealand Villa was used but never seen it as much as today. I thought you had to have more original features to make it a villa, but you learn something new every day:-)

I have been living in NZ knocking 20 years. Bungalow is not a word used here, but hey, your link trumps anything known this end on the ground.

Seems to be a regional thing. Example here: This well located early 1900's bungalow has been renovated to a high standard throughout.

I suppose coming from Europe you'd expect a villa to be a bit bigger, maybe something more like this

I've seen lots of properties for sale listed as Bungalows. There's currently 579 listed on trademe

Maybe it's a regional thing 🤔

The best one is they call static caravans Cottages 😆😂

I've seen them called flats but not cottages. Mind you units seem to also be flats and vice versa.

Me and him have chatted about the Nelson/Tasman area and we wonder if Stoke might do. Near to facilities / hospital/ city / other townships. Close enough to sandy beaches - most folk drive to them anyway. Isel park is close by as are assorted domains.
It is on a bus route also.
It is hard to beat the Nelson/Tasman weather.

A house

Another house

an
d another one.

Stoke is interesting.
I meant to ask why it was so cheap.
It seems to be somewhere you drive past going from Nelson to Richmond.
