    the location is very restful, a very peaceful place to stay, very well decorated but still with the at home feeling. The beach 2 minutes walk away and then a hot tub. It was wonderful.

  • Mariners Rest is a lovely home - very cosy & clean

    Mariners Rest is a lovely home - very cosy & clean. It has everything you need, including books & videos. It is in a great location - very close to the beach & shops, & only a short drive to Auckland city. We had a very enjoyable stay & would definitely stay again next time we are in Auckland.

    The owner of this property (Jenny) could not have been more helpful, friendly or responsive to any questions I had before and throughout my stay. 10 out of 10. Beautiful house with everything you could want to host an entire family who like to eat at home. My kids (ages 7 and 8) loved it - especially the open fire (we stayed in June). I would highly recommend this house and its location. Location was key for us. Thanks Jenny!
