About John Morton
We are John and Mali Morton. Originally from England (John) and Sri Lanka (Mali) we have enjoyed the good life in NZ since 1989. We have six accommodation options on Mount Hobson that enjoy 3000m2 of beautiful landscaped gardens with extensive views. We have gradually extended our accommodation business over a 12 year period and enjoy meeting guests from all over the world. Many of our guests have been new settlers in NZ. Often guests make an initial booking through an agency then book future stays (or stay extensions) direct with us.
John Morton purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why John Morton chose Remuera
When we bought our large home on a large section about 12 years ago it had a Cottage at the back of the large gardens and grounds. We loved the location, the views and the beautiful gardens and the proximity to the City and all Auckland has to offer. We are about 5 minutes walk from Remuera Metro (Railway) Station with fast and frequent trains to the CBD.
What makes this Cottage unique
Landscaped Gardens. Panoramic Views. Access to Mount Hobson Reserve. Close to City and local cafes & restaurants and five minutes walk to bus routes and Remuera Metro Station giving easy and fast access to the City.

Very comfortable stay with gorgeous views.
Exceeded expectations. Fortunate to stay in this beautiful cottage. Comfortable bed.
Well maintained. Wonderful hosts.
Thank you John and Mali.
Our host John was a very pleasant gentleman.
The cottage had all we required for a 7 night stay, and having a rental car, it was well located for any direction you wished to travel.
It’s a real Home away from home. View is amazing, very clean and got everything I needed for my stay
Owners really care for their guests. They checked and worried when I didn’t turned up on my check in date. Thank you so much for your concerned.
This is an amazing place. It has a million dollar view, very clean, quiet and close to everything. I will highly recommended this place to anyone. If I have the opportunity I will stay here
Great place to stay short to medium term.
Great place to stay short to medium term. Beautiful setting and view. Loved the easy access to the summit. Great location to get stound central Auckland if you have a car.
It was too good to stay there.
It was too good to stay there..the location is awesome...and the cottage is beautiful and the view from it also eye catching....i should have given 10 on 10 points but deducted two points ans one star as the cottage is about 200m up from the road....so accessing to the cottage regularly was a bit tough for my parents.....but overall it was a very good experience living there..
Thank you for the good review. It's a minor disappointment when a "Five Star" Review is scaled back for a factor we can't change (Steep Driveway) :)- Please note that the Cottage is at the top of a very steep 200 metre driveway and that a reasonable level of fitness is required for access. Refer many photos showing the steep driveway and the steps up to the Cottage. We have five alternative properties on Mount Hobson with easier access. :)- Enjoy NZ.
