About Jane Gwynne
I'm lucky enough to live in one of the world's greatest cities and with family in London and NY, need no excuse to head to the other side of the world! My husband Roger and I got the travel bug five years ago (once we'd done our bit raising three daughters) and fell in love with Italy and the south of Portugal. At home we love boating, fishing, cycling and motorcycling (Roger 's thing) ... and are more than enthusiastic about our food and wine! The weekends will find us discovering new and old experiences in and around Auckland, or visiting our Coromandel bach for a spot of fishing, paddle boarding and casual entertaining.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the large, sunny covered garden terrace, beautifully planted with quality outdoor furniture - perfect for al fresco dining. Our guests tell us this is one of the best apartments in the inner city - in particular they really appreciate the 'Insider's Guide to Auckland' we've put together; all our favourite things to eat, do and see in and around our gorgeous city.

Our host made us feel welcome from the start with perfect instructions about entry to a bottle of wine and coffee. The apartment was lovely and even better than pictured! The bedding and bath linens were hotel quality. We usually stay in hotels but this was even better!
Beautiful Home in Auckland
My friends and I had no idea what to expect once we arrived in Auckland. The apartment was better than expected.?Everything was fresh, clean and airy! Jane even provided spices to go along with all the kitchen amenities!! We loved the apartment, building and location. We’d love to return one day. Sidenote: the tubs were just as good as those in spas!
Apartment in a great location. It is lovely and clean with very nice decor. Appreciated the 2 pools and gyms. Thanks for the wonderful meal suggestions. Those that we experienced were spot on and delicious. Auckland is a city with lots to do and WONDERFUL food. Thank you for so graciously taking my phone call.
Jo Ann, thank you so much for your kind words. It was an absolute delight to host you and I'm so pleased you found your way to some of our great restaurants. We love sharing our city and it makes my day when guests really get the most out of their stay. Come back again one day and explore some more!
I highly recommend this VRBO... perfect location & excellent accommodations.
We loved the location & accommodations. When we return to Auckland this is where we will stay!
Great to hear you enjoyed your stay David. It was a pleasure to host you and of course there's a very warm welcome for you here any time.
We hope you'll be back again soon!
Elegant 2 bedroom apartment in the heart of Auckland
Apartment is very beautifully decorated in a modern style. Jane was helpful in getting us in a little earlier on our arrival day. Roof top pool area is a nice place to relax and from which you can watch people skywalk and sky jump from the Sky Tower.
Some paving tile work was underway in outside open area below the room. Crew started jack hammering at 7:15 am one day, and we contacted Jane. She was quick to follow up with hotel, and it turns out the crew (not employed by the hotel/apartment complex, but company owning another building) had violated working hours agreement. The matter was addressed. Jane dropped by that afternoon to apologize for the inconvenience -- which we greatly appreciated. As construction work was minor, I suspect it will be wrapped up shortly. Great place to stay, and a very responsible owner.
Glenn and Lynn
thanks so much for taking the time to write such a thorough and generous review. It was lovely meeting you all and a pleasure to host. You're right, the works are all but completed now and the contractors are back to working within restricted hours.
Like many international cities, Auckland is undergoing a major facelift at the moment in preparation for the Americas Cup and the many visitors this will attract. The upside of the courtyard work is that all the new paving, planting and seating will create a really lovely outlook from our apartment's terrace.
I hope you travelled well and that one day, we see you all again,
Great apartment. Beautifully decorated and well equipped with friendly and helpful hosts
Location is perfect: easy walking distance to ferry, Britomart and viaduct
Beautiful apartment with everything one would need for a comfortable stay. Large balcony allows you to enjoy breakfast outside in nice weather. The rooftop pool and hot tub were a nice bonus. Jane and Roger are very pleasant and were always available to help with any and all questions.
Although right in the heart of the CBD, the apartment is quiet, sunny and set well back from the road above a beautiful, large internal courtyard. The Viaduct, Britomart and Wynyard Quarter - all renowned for their cafes, restaurants and harbour buzz - are within 10 minutes walk. Auckland Ferry Terminal is a short walk, as are Queen Street and Britomart which are filled with luxury boutiques and renowned local designers. The Auckland Art Gallery is 10 minutes walk. The apartment is absolute central yet provides true resort living right in the heart of Auckland CBD.
