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 :-)
