Set in Auckland's delightful North Shore, public transport a short 5 min walk away. 15 min drive to the stunning Takapuna Beach, or 20 min to the CBD (during off-peak) or relax with the smaller beaches or coastal/bush walks that Beach Haven has on offer!
So you are looking for a place of rest and relaxation? 20 minutes drive to the CBD? Close to public transport?
We offer you simple generous-sized furnished bedroom with its own back deck that gets plenty of morning sun. Your bed is a slat bed with a very comfy double size mattress. Sheets, towels, and other basic linen provided.
House is a typical Kiwi 1960's weatherboard home that we have started to renovate inside and out.
It features a fresh paint job inside, natural wooden floors throughout the lounge, kitchen and dining. It's warm & dry with new insulation throughout & a ventilation system. Good sized lounge with TV, heatpump/airconditioning, high speed unlimited wireless internet. There is a large deck off the lounge with a gas barbecue and plenty of places to sit and relax. Great kitchen and dining area, one shared bathroom (with toilet, shower/bath and basin), plus a washer and dryer in the laundry you'll also have access to.
We enjoy meeting people from other cultures, having travelled the world abit ourselves and with plans to explore further.

Q: When can I check in or check out?
A: I will try to accommodate your check-in or check-out, no matter what time it is just let me know when suits and I will try to make it work. Usually check-in after 6pm week-days and after 12noon weekends is fine but please do check with me first. Note that early check-ins are not always possible if I have a guest leaving that morning, as I need time to have the room cleaned for you, or we have charge extra for early. Check-out 5pm unless organised prior.
No smoking inside house please
Clean up after yourself
Treat our home as if you would your own

Love meeting new people from different parts of the world.
I've travelled around a bit to places such as Croatia, Canada, Greece, Italy, Australia, Fiji, Rarotonga, Vanuatu. Plenty more places we'd love to explore including more of New Zealand.
