Apartment in Heritage Hotel with rooftop pool.
Hi, I’m Kerri Welcome to my privately-owned apartments located within one of the most iconic landmark buildings in Auckland City. Once the "Farmers Department Store", now shared with the "Heritage Hotel”, this 1914 building is enviably positioned in the heart of Auckland City. Guests of my apartments enjoy the best of both worlds, independence from the Hotel with full access to the resort-like facilities - Rooftop swimming pool, terrace, gym and spa with expansive city and harbour views. Indoor heated lap pool, gym, spa and sauna. Outdoor tennis court, a rarity in the CBD. Onsite restaurant , bar, gift shop and Thai spa. Renovated with traveler's comfort in mind, each apartment is stylishly unique. Finished with quality appliances and furnishings, combining history with modernity - ready for you to enjoy. Hosting, owning and managing my apartments is the accumulation of my love for travel, art, architecture and people. It would be my pleasure to host you and help you get the best out of your stay here in Auckland, my fantastic hometown. If you require something different or are travelling with a group you may be interested in looking at my other listings within the same building (enter the property numbers, 7624562 or 20041442 in the search field). Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my apartments.
Kerri purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Kerri chose Auckland CBD
Once it was an institution for generations of New Zealanders, including myself - The renowned 'Farmer's Department Store'. It started it's life in 1914 as a mail order company which was then expanded in 1917 into a grand scale(over five acres of floor space) Victorian retail store, the 'Farmer's Department Store'. In 1935 it was modernized with an art-deco facade. In 1992 the store was closed to be re-opened in 1998 after a conversion into what is now the 4.5* Heritage Hotel. Of the 263 rooms, some are privately owned, this is one of them, I hope you enjoy it.

Best Place to stay in Downtown
This Apartment was exactly as shown in the listing. It is extremely clean and everything you need is there. She has thought of everything, tiny sewing kit, emergency kit, shaver...
If anything is wrong or any issue you can contact Karri very easy and she will take care of it asap. We highly recommend this apartment while in Auckland, we would stay there again in a heartbeat! Totally top notch apartment, and can see the water from the windows.
A wonderful introduction to New Zealand - thank you so much
Kerri was really helpful throughout the whole process. She provided us with lots of useful information. We found the place easily enough and the location is excellent for visiting Auckland with plenty of eating places nearby as well as the Skytower. A fairly short walk will also take you down to the Quay area.
The apartment itself was extremely well equipped, clean and tidy. There was even a travel plug for us Brits to power up our iPads. She really had thought of everything - it was a wonderful introduction to our first stay in New Zealand. I would definitely recommend it and if we are back this way would certainly love to stay here again.
Outstanding property; excellent owner!
A great apartment with all of the amenities - plus a few special touches from Kerri the owner including the most comprehensive traveller package we have ever seen. The pool and gym on the rooftop was a wonderful bonus. Kerri was a joy to deal with - always quick to respond and always helpful.
We would recommend this apartment without reservation.
Kerri sent excellent notes when we booked, and we used them in planning this first part of our New Zealand journey.
Kerri’s apartment is a private apartment within a hotel; the hotel staff are not involved with the apartment.
Nevertheless, when we pitched up at 1am, two members of staff met the taxi, helped us with luggage and showed us where to get our keycard !
The location is key. From the apartment, it is a short walk up to Skytower and its hop-on-hop-off bus stop, and a gentle stroll down to the ferry terminal and Queen Street.
The apartment has big rooms. Everything is modern, clean and cared for. The roof terrace is an added bonus.
Rising above it all, the communication was excellent ... Kerri you’re a star !
