Apartment in Heritage Hotel with rooftop pool.
Hi, I'm Kerri, an Auckland born, Kiwi. After living aboard and travelling the world with my husband and three young sons, the love of family and NZ has drawn me back to my ‘blessed’ hometown, Auckland. At home, I take advantage of what Auckland has to offer – spectacular outdoors, water, beaches, native bush, volcanoes, city ... Good wine, coffee, food and art :) Short-let accommodation has been and continues to be hugely beneficial to my travels. I hope that as a host I can help you get the best out of your stay here in Auckland, NZ. If you require something different or are travelling with a group you may be interested in looking at my other listing within the same building (enter the property number, 7624562, in the search field). Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my listing.
Kerri purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Kerri chose Auckland CBD
Fond memories, a nostalgic building now updated for modern city life. As a child, it was one of my most exciting outings to visit what was once the 'Farmer's Department Store'. After my Mum did a bit of shopping, I would get to visit the rooftop playground. 'Hector' the talking cockatoo would always greet me too. It was an institution for generations of New Zealanders. 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.

Convenient and modern
We found the manager to be very helpful and they provided great instructions for getting to and from the property, as well as local eateries etc. Such a handy location, just minutes from the CBD attractions and bus stops. The room is stylish and has all the mod cons you need. The room is located away from the main road so is surprisingly quiet for the inner city at night. It has a bit of a view of the harbour too.
Fabulous apartment in great central location
We would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a central location in Auckland. We are not casino people but it's very close for thosecwho are, it's a short walk to the lively waterfront, and the apartment is beautifully clean and really well equipped with everything you could possibly want. Kerri's communication was brilliant. We loved it😁
A fantastic apartment with great amenities in a great location
Wow is the first thing that comes to mind such a nice apartment, warm and spacious and perfect for our 2 night stay in Auckland. Kerri was a perfect hostess and made the stay a very smooth sailing will definitely be back! Cannot recommend enough
Host was very responsive and the unit was clean and very comfortable for our needs. Gym and pool was perfect for us. Great location and we really appreciated the little touches such as milk, tea and fruit for our use. We aren’t coffee drinkers but there was coffee available too. Can’t really think of a way the experience could have been improved. Thank you!!
We loved being close to all the harbor action -restaurants, bars etc.
