Experience the beauty of the New Zealand forest while being close to Auckland city. This multi-level architect-designed treehouse home is a real gem. Character to the max with native timbers, big triangle windows and five different levels. You need to be a cat lover as two are in happy residence and will need to be fed.
This house was designed by renowned Kiwi architect Kerry Avery when he was a student for his young family. It is a multi level pole house with lots of different levels and wonderful quirky features. It is set in a kauri grove so 360 degrees you have our beautiful native kauri around the house.
The house is generally available for short stays but I could also be open to longer stays. If the calendar is not showing available on your long-stay dates please send me a message.
Servicios y zonas comunes
The whole house is yours apart from two rooms. You will have access to two bedrooms at the top of the house, one is a single and the other is a double-level room with a single on the first floor and a queen on the mezannine, accessed by a ladder. There is ample living space with a large kitchen/diner and a second lounge by the fire. Lovely spacious sunny kitchen.
There are two gorgeous cats who live here and it would be wonderful if you would look after them as your own. I will leave food for them. They have a cat flap so there is no cat litter to deal with. Maybe the odd mouse to discard.
NB: The second bathroom has a bath with shower over but it's not really in order. It's best to use the shower room upstairs and just use the bottom bathroom as an extra toilet/basin and for laundry facilities.
NB: There is a basement room that is storage only and not in use by guests.
NB: My bedroom will not be available and I'll just close the door on it.
NB: Heating is woodburner only so if you are here for the shoulder season bear in mind it might be chilly when you wake up.
Atención a los huéspedes
I will aim to be here for your arrival and possibly departure. Otherwise I will leave a key. Either way I will be in clear communication with you.
No smoking inside the house.
Light the fire daily during winter to keep everything warm and dry.

Hi, I'm a writer/editor/poet/traveller/horse rider/nature lover and to explain the picture I also play djembe, African drum (don't worry I don't practise at home!). Originally from England, I've been in NZ nine years and I'm enjoying living in the trees in West Auckland and the great lifestyle this region has to offer: wild romantic beaches, hiking in the beautiful bush (kiwi word for forest), great cafes and local galleries. Currently I'm working on newspapers - Australian ones. Sometimes I write features for magazines. Travel, lifestyle, homes. I love road trips and finding cool places to visit. Can give you some great tips about what to do in the area. Enjoy meeting people and look forward to meeting you :)
