  • Lovely friendly hosts and a beautiful unique place. Felt like we were right out of Auckland and off the grid. Would love to stay again!

  • Such a beautiful place!! The place was amazing. We had a perfect night there. Loved the rain on the tin roof too!

  • Nestled in the quiet bush, surrounded by fern and Kauri trees...our two night getaway was a serene and tranquil experience. The chalet was spacious, trendy, and very much accommodating to a quick getaway. It was very difficult to say good bye. Although we never met our lovely hosts, they were quick with returning our messages/questions to give us suggestions on places to go out around the town. Highly recommend this beautiful space! :-)

  • Gorgeous, picturesque, perfect for a romantic getaway. We only had a few hours at night once we got there, we wish we had been there sooner. Facilities were fantastic! The hosts were super sweet and helpful! They even let me borrow their iron! We slept so well hearing the birds!

  • The location was fantastic. It was great to be secluded in a separate space even though the host welcomed us graciously. The cabin exceeded our expectations and was incredibly beautiful. We will definitely back!

  • We had an amazing stay, it is such a nice place, surrounded by the bush, we absolutely enjoyed it! It was pretty convenient as well not to have to go through the city center on our way to the airport.

  • My wife and I had a wonderful time at the chalet. It was private and the view was unforgettable. David and Kim were both very kind and helpful during our stay. We ordered breakfast the first morning and it was delicious. If we ever return to New Zealand and we will definitely try to stay here again.

  • This place is a gorgeous little gem hidden away in an oasis of native forest. Tranquil setting offering a peaceful escape from the daily grind, great place to unwind and explore the waitakere ranges, or find that prefect cafe near the sea. Our hosts were superb, everything was sorted for when we arrived, they made our experience so easy and enjoyable. Thank you so much :)

  • Really nice people. Great house. Beautiful place. Totally recommended!!!

  • Thank you so much for your suggestions and hospitality. Breakfast was a,axing,and the views from your backyard are spectacular.

  • We stayed in this beautiful house for 3 nights and loved it. The view, especially in the morning, is amazing. We loved the Kayak. Gerry and Jeanette are great and welcoming people. The breakfast was georgeous! We definitely recommend the place. Thank you Gerry and Jeanette!

  • Gerry and Jeannine are terrific hosts and their house has the best seaside view immaginable. The guest bathroom and bedroom are spacious, modern, and well appointed. They live in a quiet suburban neighbourhood with a seaside walking path just steps from their patio. I would recommend their B&B to anyone. Ralph and Irene

  • My stay with Gerry and Jeanette was a joy from beginning to end. I was in NZ visiting relatives which is always a bittersweet experience as I hate to say goodbye. Gerry & Jeanette helped make my stay in Auckland so much easier by their kindness and support. They welcomed me into their home and lives for a week - a week which I will always treasure. They are really lovely people I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with them. Their home and it's location couldn't be better - I would often wake around 5.00am and go for a long walk along the harbour coastline which is lined with beautiful native bush and watch the sun rise over Auckland cith with a coffee. Jeanette would prepare me a super breakfast when I returned and we'd eat and chat whilst looking out across the harbour. I didn't rent a car this visit (which I regret) but Jeanette was brilliant and dropped me off numerous times so that I didn't have to catch the bus. I just can't recommend them highly enough. I will definitely be returning....

  • Gerry and Jeannette were excellent hosts and their home was lovely. Private luxurious bathroom, nice bedroom, beautiful home. Right on the waterfront - access to beaches and a beautiful walk. Highly recommended.

  • Our stay with Gerry and Jeannette was totally wonderful. They have a beautiful home located on the waterfront with a stunning view of downtown Auckland in the distance across the bay. They went way beyond normal B&B hospitality standards to welcome us, spend a great deal of time with us and provide great suggestions for our stay in the Auckland area. We felt like we were staying with good friends who enjoyed our company. The breakfasts were delicious and nuitricious. Our expectations were greatly exceeded.

  • Wow what a wonderful place you have Gerry and Jeannette and what lovely hosts! Thanks for making me feel part of the family. The views from the back over the water towards Auckland skyline were great to just sit and enjoy. Took an easy bus ride to town and ferry to Davenport for a leisurely day. Overall a five star experience!

Marika is a great communicator and responded promptly to our queries. She suggested several restaurants in the neighborhood which were spot on. Public transportation is a 10 minute walk and Uber was never more than 5 minutes away. The property was perfect for two people and it was clean, everything worked and it was as represented in the listing and photos. We would definitely stay here again.
