Bungalow fully self contained modern flat

 Ideal location - a few minutes walk away from the train station, buses, Countdown supermarket (essential!), and Nosh. We had two stays here during February, it was highly adequate for our needs on both occasions. In a quiet, pleasant residential area yet close to amenities. Stayed here with my daughter and18 month old granddaughter - so the large lounge was a boon for the toddler. The property was very clean, and it was a pleasure to meet the owners in person as they are on site. 

Cosy Central Suburbs Villa

 Nice and quiet. Cosy and tidy. Great little spot. 

Bungalow fully self contained modern flat

 A wonderful homely place to stay.We werent familiar with Auckland so were pleasantly surprised at how central it was and close to everything we needed, was the perfect location for us.Would happily stay here again and would definitely recommend to family and friends.The only minor things were not enough toilet paper, husband had to drive to supermarket at midnight when we realised there was no more in cupboard and only had one towel each for 3 nights, easily corrected. Thank you for a great stay

Relax in our piece of paradise

 Nice quiet location and house was clean and tidy. Handy to many Auckland attractions. Great option when you don't want to be in a motel. 

Relax in our piece of paradise

 Size of rooms and overall property (more space than we have ever experienced in Auckland). Flexibility of host. Area is certainly up and coming, safe and relaxing. Great pool to sit and have a drink around plus a large kitchen with BBQ to cook up a big feed.
