Our charming home which is set in bush is perfect for rejuvenating. It feels as if you can leave the world behind! Yet is within easy access to the CBD.
The bedroom is serene and sunny with a comfortable bed (according to guests). It has external access and is away from the main part of the house so it is private.

The space

Are you looking for a place of rest and restoration? Set in beautiful NZ native bush? Within walking distance of one the North Shore's stunning beaches? A place where all the amenities your heart desires are close by? 20 minutes to the CBD? Would you like to wake up to the song of native tuis? Hear the moreporks call? Watch lorikeets swoop through the valley?

We offer you an elegant, sun-kissed generous-size room with your own access. Expect to unwind amidst the peaceful surroundings.Enjoy a continental breakfast at home or walk to the local cafe.

We enjoy meeting people from other cultures, having traveled the world ourselves and with plans to explore further.

Our neighbourhood is extremely quiet and safe. Bush walks and beaches surround our home. There are ferries and regular buses to the CBD. The Birkenhead shopping centre is a 6 minute drive away. It has an array of shops, restaurants, cafes and a movie theatre.

Very much enjoyed my month's stay with Lisa & John. The house is in a quiet area but well served by buses, and the bed was warm and very comfortable. They are friendly & interesting hosts and I would recommend this as a place to stay

Many thanks to Lisa for the cosy and clean place. My client said it's very clean and comfortable to stay there. But since the client doesn't speak English and this whole booking was a bit of fire rescue case where I used my personal account to make a booking for the client, I bet there is huge communication issue out there. But Lisa helped the client check in even though she has already gone to sleep and that has been super kind and helpful. Lesson learnt:never use personal account for business use. But thanks to Lisa and this is definitely a nice place to stay at Northshore Auckland.

Response from Lisa:
You're welcome. He was quite sweet. He just didn't seem to know what to expect. Thank-you for the booking.

Lisa's place is cosy and comfortable and well set-up for guests. It's a lovely retreat from the city while being an easy commute by public transport. Would recommend!

Lisa has a lovely home in a beautiful area of Auckland. It was a short walk to a lovely little beach and close to great food. Lisa and her family were warm, welcoming and very inclusive when I did not have plans of my own. I had a lovely stay and would highly recommend a stay there.

We enjoyed our stay at Lisa and John's place. It was a cozy, quiet place surrounded by trees with great view. The private room is spacious, clean and comfy. A good place for a relaxing trip, definitely recommended.
