  • It was our 1st experience staying in the bush and it turned out to be a special experience for both my wife and myself. We have really enjoyed our peaceful stay at the bush chalet. It's a private stay with no disturbance, and it seems you have the whole forest to yourself. Having said that, the bush chalet is actually only a short drive away to restaurants and amenities. Dave, the host, was friendly and made us feel at home upon our arrival. We highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a unique experience. You really get what you see in the photos!

  • 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.

  • A little hard to find with gps, glad Kim provided exact directions. It was an unbelievable experience and we loved it. Wish we had more time to explore. Truly worth every penny!!

  • This was the best accommodation we have ever been! Kim and Dave are great hosts (Dave, we really enjoyed the chat with you)! The room is stunning, clean and zen and waking up with the bush view has no price! We highly recommend this accommodation.

  • Welcomed us with our last minute booking and made sure we felt at home in their amazing space! This little studio is bliss and just 20ish minutes from the airport— A must stay if you're in Auckland. Let us check out late in day due to get to our flight on time :)! Super!

  • The room and views were picture perfect and it felt like we were staying at a private 5-Star Hotel.

  • My husband and I stayed with Kim and Dave for the first two nights of our honeymoon. We had a wonderful stay and would do it again.

  • Great place! Beautiful views, amazing bed and facilities. Dream stay during our honeymoon!

  • Just when I thought hosts couldn't get any better, I meet Jeanette and Gerry! Both of them are exceedingly generous especially when I needed help with transport. The accommodation was truly spectacular! I'm going to miss the great conversations, wine, bed and, of course, Jeanette's home made breakfast muesli!

  • The location is quiet, peaceful and amazingly beautiful, with a nature reserve only between you and shore. Jeannette and Gerry are wonderful hosts. Their suggestions for travel led us to change our itinerary...for the best! We have had a magical experience in New Zealand and thank our airbnb hosts for much of it.

  • Great view, good breakfast and nice and friendly hosts! We enjoyed our stay! You just need a car when you go there:)

  • This location is exactly as described! Fantastic, stylish house with amazing views across to the city. Gerry and Jeanette were warm, welcoming and generous hosts and helped us shape our ongoing travel plans. Facilities excellent - we really felt at home. I will long remember sitting with Gerry and Jeanette with a glass of wine watching moonrise over the harbour bridge with the city lit up behind it. Magical. A wonderful stay.

  • This was my third home stay in New Zealand. It's a very charming waterside property with amazing views that provided an interesting alternative to the city centre. I was very well looked after by the charming couple who were only to happy to offer advice along with a superb breakfast. Only wish I had more time to spend at the delightful location.

  • Staying with Gerry and Jeanette was a relaxing and peaceful conclusion to our holiday. Their home looks out across the bay, it is wonderful to simply sit and relax. Jeanette makes wonderful continental breakfasts, with fresh fruit and coffee! Great coffee! Our room was beautifully quiet and spacious, with plenty of extra pamphlets and books if you want to learn more about NZ. Lovely comfy double bed, with electric blankets too. We had our own bathroom too, with a great walk-in shower. Gerry and Jeanette are welcoming and knowledgeable hosts happy to share their love of travelling and NZ. Their home is an udeal location to start or as we did, conclude a trip to New Zealand.

  • Beautiful home, amazing views! Hosts were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Granola was delicious would reccommend this place to all.

  • I stayed at Gerry and Jeanette's place together with my family. We experienced an awesome time at this amazing place. These two hosts are exceptional friendly and made our stay to an outstanding experience of Auckland. The view is simply breathtaking, the rooms lovely and the breakfast with Jeanettes homemade muesli and yammi fresh fruits is delicious. Highly recommendable!

  • Gorgeous location with breathtaking views! Wow! Steps from coastal pathways to take it all in. Inside is just as lovely, updated and relaxing. Peaceful retreat not far from the airport and city. Yve was a fantastic host. Thank you!!

  • Our stay at Yve and Alan's place was wonderful. I travelled from Brisbane to with my two young children as my daughter was competing in a Tumbling & Trampolining Championship in town and Alan was there to greet us upon our arrival. The apartment was a perfect size for us and Yve & Alan had very kindly filled the kitchen with breakfast goodies & lovely coffee. Not to mention the gorgeous soap in the shower. I meant to ask you where I could buy some. The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed & more. Well priced and very comfortable. The amazing view was fabulous and the surrounding area is beautiful. Convenient to where we had to get to in Auckland. A car a must. What a great spot you two have! Highly recommended. I will let my friends know about this little gem. Thanks again Yve & Alan! (by the way, Eva brought home a gold medal in her synchro event - pleased as punch!) :)

  • À wonderful place to start out holidays ! Our hosts are realy cool and they have can accomodate us before our leaving :)

  • The pictures are 100% accurate! We loved staying at Yve & Alan's cottage. It was very comfy, beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. It was perfect for the 2 of us. The bed was very comfortable and so was the couch. The big TV swivels so we watching movies from both. The kitchen had everything you would need, and instead of a stovetop or oven, we used the big grill right outside our door more than once. The pool was beautiful and so was the view! The house is gorgeous. Eve & Alan were so warm and friendly, they even had us over for dinner our first night, wine with conversation, very nice. Checked on us often and let us use their phone more than once. They left us homemade soap in the shower, which was a really nice big shower with a great showerhead. The fridge had fresh milk and orange juice, fresh fruit, jams & marmalades, other fruits, bread, butter, Greek yogurt, things on the counter too. Cereal, coffees, teas, and other jarred goodies. Very nice touches. The neighborhood is also very nice, but you will need a rental car to go farther out, book a car way in advance! Our first 2 days we were stuck (it was raining anyway so we just relaxed) due to our rental we booked 2 days in advance being cancelled at the last minute and it took us a while to find another. The walk into town for the grocery store and restaurants is about 20 or so minutes, so not too bad, and nice walk. We had a lovely time, and would definitely recommend anyone to stay at this cottage. Eve & Alan are 5 star hosts!!

  • Wow, this place was amazing, very classy tasteful decor and indeed a touch of relaxed luxury. Loved the yummy food that was left for us. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

  • Perfect place!

  • What a place, the views are incredible, the apartment is perfect, really quiet and peaceful and so clean and cosy but also very airy with the sliding doors. I also have to give a special mention to the shower which I could of happily lived in. Thanks so much for the warm welcome and help throughout my stay.

  • One word to summarize it all: Perfect! The place looked great in the listing but was even better seeing it for real. Loved the little details such as cooking condiments, fruits, milk, juice, heated towel racks, luggage stand and HAIRDRYER! As it was nearing winter, the warm beds gave me such a good rest that I couldn't believe it was already morning when I opened my eyes. It made me feel right at home and the location was also great. I will definitely stay there again/recommend it to my friends if they are visiting Auckland.

    Wonderful stay, close to inner city as well as the upscale dining. Celia was a great help in planning day trips as well as a great person. Highly recommend.
    Sarah's house was lovely and clean. She went above and beyond providing to her guests. She was a wonderful host and she made us feel very welcome. The location was brilliant and close to everything you wanted. The house was full of amenities that we were not expecting to receive. The main house is amazing and unique with a wonderful view of downtown Auckland. A great place to stay!

    The loft is an absolutely beautiful space to stay in. It's in the perfect location - a close walk to restaurants, shops, and the rail station to get into downtown. The loft is clean and relaxing and was the perfect place to stay in during my short trip.
