    Location very handy to the bus and also to dining spots in the area. Very safe, quiet, and comfortable. The room we had is maybe a bit small if needed for several days.

    Simon and Richard are as welcoming and friendly as their home is comfortable and well appointed. In addition to a wonderful setting to relax in they provided some great tips about what to do in town and how to get about the beautiful city of Auckland. Staying with them was like visiting relatives – the kind you like to visit! – and we would certainly return to their home again if the opportunity presented itself.

  • The house is a 2 bedroom 1 bath

    The house is a 2 bedroom 1 bath. He rents out one and you share the bathroom with the owners. The place has been remodeled beautifully and it was totally comfortable to share the bathroom. I thought because I was traveling with my 26 yr old daughter and I am 63 yrs old this would be an issue but it was not. The bedrooms can be separated from the living room/ kitchen area by a big glass door so you don't hear any noice from the TV/ kitchen area. Beautiful back patio that we had breakfast on.
