Kia ora! Haere mai and Welcome!
All travellers will love my whare (house). You will be privy to Maori hospitality with a cultural and historical knowledge of Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland). Walk upstairs to find a lovely large private room with copious closets, ensuite, study and kitchenette (no sink). A beautiful bed with quality quilting. Settle in with an undisturbed shower, a coffee, beer or wine. Watch a DVD or a movie on Netflix, relax... or come down and meet the whanau. All are welcome.
A lovely old lady built circa 1900's with all the charm of her era. High plastered ceilings with original windows. The addition of a second story allies for a special guest room in which you will occupy.
You will access the house and room key from a secured box. You are welcome to access and use the kitchen, lounge and laundry areas. There is off street parking just outside our front door.
You have the entire second floor to yourself where you access your ensuite, study and small kitchenette facilities so you choose the level of interaction. I will meet and greet you on arrival wherever possible however if I cannot you can phone, text or email me any time with concerns or queries. I certainly will make your aquaintance when home if you wish. We are a busy family in the mornings and evenings and are home most weekends. We are a very sociable whanau and welcome your presence when and if you'd like to socialise but your privacy is paramount.
