Guests stay in their own separate, fully self-contained apartment with its own entrance beneath our family home. This is completely private at all times and the homeowners do not intrude. The host family also have a small Shitzu dog named Coco who is a real cutie-pie. Coco lives in the family home only and does not have access to the apartment. Secure, off-street parking is available right outside the entrance to the apartment.
We would be delighted to assist guests with suggestions or advice on things to see and do in Auckland, such as tourist attractions, great restaurants and alike. We can also assist with suggestions for other parts of New Zealand if you are moving on after your stay with us (e.g. Rotorua, Hobbiton, Queenstown, Arrowtown etc).
This space is also ideal for the Business Traveller as it is private, quiet and close to City Centre and North Shore Business Centres. There is also access to unlimited high-speed 100mbps fibre internet (WiFi and Wired).
Dean and Margaret live in Auckland. We are both semi-retired professionals. We both love the movies, music, travel, meeting new people and experiencing new places. We have spent considerable time in the US and love to stay in NYC. Last year we spent a month in the Southern States and took in the Music Cities of Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. We also know our way around New Zealand very well and can assist with recommendations for travel, restaurants and tourist venues. Please let me know if you would like any further information about us.
