Mission In The Bay -   Free Hot Spa !

 It was such a nice place to stay. I will definitely come again. Walking distance to the beach, wonderful outdoor area. We had a hot spa and the kids loved it too. Rowena is a fabulous host too! thank you. 

Parnell Judges Bay View

 Great property-excellent location, very spacious, clean, tidy and modern. Well furnished and comfortable with quality fixtures, fittings and appliances. 20/25 minute walk to CBD or 10 minutes to Parnell. Well equipped dairy and butcher right on the doorstep. We will definitely stay again-thought the rate was great value considering the quality and location. 

Palm Garden Apartment- private and secluded

 Discreet, good views, & very nicely furnished. I had actually booked it on behalf of family members who were visiting as I live locally. I will almost certainly book this apartment again when I receive future visitors. This apartment was excellent. 

Postmodern luxury apartment with stunning views

 Perfect location, brilliant views, fully equiped with everything we needed, comfy beds:) 

Self contained garden apartment close to the beach

 Sarah & her family were very gracious & accomodating hosts. The apartment was a great fit for our needs during our week in Auckland. The unit was immaculate, the back yard nicely private & we appreciated the washer/dryer access. We'd highly recommend this location. 

Mission In The Bay -   Free Hot Spa !

 Lovely property, everything you need inside and awesome location. Would 100% book again if we had friends that needed a place to stay in auckland. The owner was a pleasure to deal with which always makes it easier.
