Crewquarters - Short and Long stay accommodation

 The house was great for our large group. It was clean and in a great location for easy access to cafes, groceries, clothes shops, etc. Each room has its own en suite bath which was great. The common rooms made it easy for early risers to not disturb the other members of our party. 

Luxury Parnell Townhouse

 Thank you for a lovely home to stay in. The house is amazing and with so much room it meant that 3 adult couples each enjoyed their own space. Helen was a pleasure to deal with and made everything very easy. The location was fantastic with the bus stop to the city near by or great shops and cafes only a walk away. We would recommend this house to anyone staying in Auckland. Thank you Helen :-)
